The Line: Columbus Crew SC (-110) v Minnesota United (+280)
Columbus has been on a bit of a tear since the MLS restart. Columbus enters this game on a 3-game winning streak before their last draw. With a 4-game winning streak prior that this year. Minnesota United has plenty of attacking power but they will be short their premier defender Ike Opara. That is something Minnesota can overcome but it will be a tall order to fill.
Columbus is a team that loves to attack and we have seen their offensive creativity play out on the field many times this season. When you look at Minnesota on paper they can flat-out score. Scoring 12 goals this season compared to Columbus’s 9 goals scored. What will hinder Minnesota tonight is Columbus’s defense that has only given up 1 goal this season. Compared to Minnesota United who have given up 6 goals this season.
In my eyes it’s settled. We will see scoring. I believe the Crew can get up to 3 goals this match. I see Minnesota finishing this game with a goal possibly 2.
My wager: Over 2.5 goals (-110)
