This weekends Brit Big Board was a trainwreck. No other way to put it. Maybe the worst Big Board all-time. Not gonna lie to ya, I’ve been cold on the EPL, but that’s why God made the MLS Cup play on Sunday; it’s here to save us from the sins and bad picks we made throughout the week.
First kick-off is at 3 PM between New England and Orlando City on ABC. Orlando is without their goalie and right-back, both of whom got red cards in the opening round thriller against NYCFC. Orlando certainly are the favorite, but New England are that team that is getting hot at the right time and have the edge in the coaching department. It’s an unpopular pick, but I’m gonna ride the Revs ML at +200 just cause the value is unreal. Also on the over of 2.5 goals at -125.
Moving onto the nightcap, I’m really fighting myself here. On one hand we have Nashville who are the cinderella story in these Cup playoffs, and on the other we have Columbus who have a legitimate chance at winning the title. Tough to win 3 straight playoff games, so I think Columbus halts Nashville’s fairytale run. Gimme the Crew money line at +140.
Hoping the MLS can be my Sunday Savior. Enjoy your Sunday lads, and as always, kick it easy.
