Betting tips & odds comparison 18.07.2022 New York RB – New York City FC

The Red Bull Arena will play host to the first Hudson River Derby of the 2022 Major League Soccer season as New York City make the short trip across the street to take on New York Red Bulls.

This season, both of these teams are on a roll. They are both in the top 3 in the Eastern Conference with Red Bull third with 33 points and New York City in 2nd place, two points ahead of them.

With so much riding on this game, a close encounter is on the cards. Our preview here will focus on Odibets and Melbet prices and betting options for our betting tips today.

NEW YORK RED BULLS

New York Red Bulls have shown tremendous poise and determination this season. These traits have seen them picking up wins and salvaging themselves from losing positions as they have done in two of their last three games including their last outing at FC Cincinnati where they shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw despite falling behind early.

Gerhard Struber has rallied his troops to buy into his system and although it took a while to do that, they now seem to be in sync with his tactics that are built on solid defense and a high tempo high-pressing game that has forced opponents into making errors that they have been pouncing on.

The Red Bulls started the season red hot on the road but they seem to have turned that around completely. They are unbeaten at this arena in their last eight straight matches across all competitions and will be looking to keep this streak alive here.

NEW YORK CITY FC

Back-to-back wins over New England Revolution and away at FC Dallas earlier this week has seen New York City FC back in contention for the Eastern Conference title. They are currently second on the log, just a point behind leaders Philadelphia Union with a game in hand in their back pocket.

Unlike their neighbours, the Pigeons are prolific in maintaining ball possession with the team awash with talented playmakers and a plethora of scoring options with as many as eight players scoring multiple goals this season which makes it difficult to scheme for them effectively.

Key to their success has been ensuring they break the deadlock in their fixtures. They have not lost any match this season that they have scored first. They lost 3-0 to their neighbours in the US Open Cup sometime last month and will be keen not to fall apart here as they did then.

NEW YORK RED BULLS VS NEW YORK CITY PREDICTIONS

Being a derby, we can expect fireworks here. The will be heightened intensity and physicality. Their last encounter was awash with bookings with three players getting their marching orders. With NYC FC expected to stay true to their game and dominate the possession here,  the home side is likely to get frustrated and this might see them visit the ref’s little book quite a few times. Melbet app have them picking up 4 or more bookings priced at 3.10 and we are going with this as our opening prediction for this clash.



Having said that, it’s difficult to ignore Red Bull’s home form. They are yet to taste defeat in their last 8 straight home games across all competitions. They have the home crowd to rally them on here and we feel it they are likely to maintain their unbeaten home run. To be on the safe side, we will back them on the double chance option @ 1.40 with Odibets Free Bet for our final call.
