Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew: Predictions and Betting Tips
Cincinnati come into this MLS matchday in eleventh place in the Eastern Conference (though, together with New York City, they have played the fewest games in the conference). They have won three games, drawn two and lost five games.
Cincinnati have scored the joint-second fewest goals this season, ahead of only to Inter Miami and tied with Chicago Fire and Austin FC. Cincinnati’s goals per game average so far is one goal.
Cincinnati are also statistically the worst home side in their Conference this season and the only team in the whole of MLS still without a point at home.
The current MLS champions, Columbus Crew, have not started this season well, as, after 11 games, they are out of the qualifying positions for the playoffs. It is quite common in MLS that the previous champion does not start the following season well.
Columbus’ scoring is no better than Cincinnati’s, as they have scored 11 goals in 11 games, an average of exactly one goal per game, the same as Cincinnati.
- Two wins, one draw and two defeats for Cincinnati in their last five games
- Cincinnati’s last five games have ended with under 2.5 total match goals
- Two wins, two draws and one defeat for Columbus in their last five games
- One win, one draw and three defeats for Columbus in their last five away games
Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Predictions
Two teams, struggling for form, are facing off. Cincinnati is the worst home team in their conference, in fact all of their 11 points have come from away games. On the other hand, Columbus is not a very reliable away team and have only won one of the six games they have played. In short, we see two teams in a very similar situation; it might just be that their poor forms can cancel each other out and the game can end in a draw.
Two of the lowest scoring teams in all of MLS are facing each other, so we do not expect this to be a high-scoring match.
