New York City odds: -142 – 58.1%

Draw odds: +295 – 24.9%

Chicago Fire odds: +385 – 17.0%

New York City’s chance for the three points is estimated at a staggering 58.1% win probability at -142. This makes coach Nick Cushing’s boys the expected winners ahead of this match. Chicago Fire, having a miserable season, are considered by the bookmakers as the underdog in this MLS fight. The visitors’ odds are standing at +385, resulting in a lackluster win probability of 17.0%.

New York City vs Chicago Fire Lineups & Team News

New York City

After losing to lackluster DC United, New York City officially lost all hope of playing in the final series or at least booking a playoff spot. Mateusz Klich and Chris Durkin scored the winning goals for DC United at Audi Field leaving New York City’s fans in tears. However, we are certain that the players will pick themselves up from the dirt to prove our New York City vs Chicago Fire predictions correct.

Predicted lineup – Freese (GK), O’Toole, Risa, Martins, Gray, Perea, Sands, Jasson, Rodriguez, T. M & Bakrar

Chicago Fire

With 10 victories, 10 draws, and 13 matches lost, Chicago Fire still have a chance to advance to the final series. To do so, they’ll have to prove our New York City vs Chicago Fire predictions wrong. Seeing as the team’s last game was a 0-2 home defeat at Soldier Field, we have our doubts about whether or not Shaqiri and his teammates will be able to get anything out of New York City this week.

Predicted lineup – Brady (GK), Dean, Omsberg, Czichos, Navarro, Doumbia, Gimenez, Herbers, Shaqiri, Gutierrez & Koutsias

Player to Watch: Matt Freese

We have faith in Matt Freese’s abilities to bring success to our New York City vs Chicago Fire predictions this week. Sure, he couldn’t keep a clean sheet against DC United last week, but he did make four crucial saves. If a more inexperienced goalkeeper was under the woodwork, the result could’ve gotten humiliating for New York City.

The 25-year-old Pennsylvania-born shot-stopper will surely be featured in New York City’s starting XI, which gives the home side a massive boost ahead of the game.
