Cincinnati odds: +127 – 43.5%

Draw odds: +230 – 29.5%

Columbus Crew odds: +255 – 27.0%

As you can see from the odds provided in our Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew prediction, the expected winners are clearly Pat Noonan’s players. Cincinnati keeps a decent 43.5% win probability at +127, while Columbus Crew’s odds at +255 imply a 27.0% chance of scooping a win at TQL Stadium. However, we are convinced that over 2.5 goals in the Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew head-to-head is the way to go, as the bookies give our second betting tip a 60.47% likelihood.

Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Lineups & Team News

Cincinnati

Before reaching the Conference semi-finals, Cincinnati had to face in-form New York Red Bulls. The match was held at Red Bull Arena and it ended 1-1 in regular time. However, coach Pat Noonan’s boys were precise with their penalty-taking, as they beat the Bulls 7-8, which is another plus in favor of our Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew prediction.

Predicted lineup – Celentano (GK), Murphy, Miazga, Mosquera, Barreal, Moreno, Nwobodo, Arias, Acosta, Badji & Vazquez

Columbus Crew

Sure, the Crew have an admirable attacking record in the 2023 Major League Soccer race, but there are definitely things to improve when it comes to defending. Coach Wilfried Nancy would be smart to provide extra back thought in the defense plan for the game against Cincinnati, as his team conceded goals in seven of the last nine games.

Predicted lineup – Schulte (GK), Amundsen, Camacho, Moreira, Yeboah, Morris, Nagbe, Farsi, Matan, Hernandez & Rossi

Player to Watch: Luciano Acosta

We are singling Luciano Acosta out, as he’s without a doubt the key favorite for the Best Player of the Season Award at the end of this campaign. Cincinnati’s attacking midfielder has been ever-present for coach Noonan throughout this entire campaign.

So far, Luciano Acosta managed to score 17 goals and provide colleagues with 10 valuable assists. No other Cincinnati player comes remotely close to these numbers. That’s why he’s the man to watch in our Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Predictions.
