Reason For New York City vs San Jose Earthquakes Betting Tips
New York City continued their unbeaten run with a 1-1 draw at home to Toronto in midweek and now sit top of the Eastern Conference by three points. SJ Earthquakes lost once again on the road on Thursday night when they went down 1-0 at Real Salt Lake but remain in the playoff places.
All of the stats suggest that New York City will extend their unbeaten run in the MLS to seven games with a win against SJ Earthquakes on Saturday.
These two sides haven’t locked horns many times before but their limited head to head record speaks volumes. New York City have won three of their four matches against SJ Earthquakes, including both home games against Saturday’s guests. New York City have scored over 1.5 team goals in three of their four previous encounters against SJ Earthquakes, which tells us the hosts are likely to score at least two goals this weekend.
The form of both clubs, especially the hosts, points glaringly towards a victory for the home side on Saturday, as New York City are unbeaten in their last six MLS games and have won five of those six matches, while SJ Earthquakes have lost four of their last six matches. SJ Earthquakes failed to score in their last two away games and have lost their last four games on the road, which is why we believe a 2-0 win for New York City is on the cards this weekend.
New York City have won five of their last six home games, against New England, New York RB, Columbus Crew, Houston Dynamo, and Sporting KC, and we’re backing them to collect another three points in front of their home faithful on Saturday. New York City don’t keep many clean sheets, just one in their last six matches, but SJ Earthquakes’ struggles in front of goal in their last two away games tells us the New York City goalkeeper isn’t going to be tested too much on Saturday.
We’re confident that New York City will win this weekend and have predicted a final scoreline of 2-0. The hosts are the clear form favourites heading into the match and have been scoring two or more goals on a regular basis of late, while their guests have failed to score in their last two away games despite looking good going forward in their own backyard.
