MLS: Off-key Red Bulls to come unstuck in Texas


MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER expert Kyle Worthington (@SM_Kyle) analyses the action from the weekend's football and shares his Saturday NAP.

FC Dallas v New York Red Bulls | Saturday 11th May 2019, 19:00

Dallas host the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night in a game that should be a great watch.

Dallas come into this unbeaten at home (W3-D2-L0). Their home form is the main reason that they’re sitting in fifth in the Western Conference. Away it’s been a bit more hit-and-miss with three defeats so this fixture is another chance for the hosts to keep that home record rolling by recording another three points.

The Red Bulls are having a poor campaign by their usual high standards. The Big Apple club start this weekend 10th in the Eastern Conference and have earned just the two points on the road; I don’t see how that will change this weekend as they head to Texas having W0-D2-L2 outside of New York.

I’ll keep this one brief as I’m fairly confident in the two picks I’ve selected; Dallas are solid at home and hosting a Red Bulls side that haven’t been firing at all this term, especially on the road. There's not many tougher places than Dallas to go in MLS and I anticipate an easy Dallas victory.

I’ve started using statistics and data to make selections, rather than my gut. American Football is what I specialise in, and thankfully for me, it is a massively data-driven sport.

Although there is an element of luck, it showed me that grasping an understanding of mathematics could prove to be very profitable.
