Philadelphia Union odds: -116 – 52.0%

Draw odds: +260 – 26.0%

New York City odds: +325 – 22.0%

A New York City win is priced at +325 (22.0%), although we don’t recommend going down that road. Philadelphia Union are the expected winners at -116, as coach Jim Curtin’s troops stand a 52.0% chance of securing the three points. Furthermore, a BTTS is valued at -120, which means there’s a 54.55% chance our second Philadelphia Union vs New York City prediction will succeed.

Philadelphia Union vs New York City Lineups & Team News

Philadelphia Union

Coach Curtin is undoubtedly displeased by the loss in the MLS Cup final last year, so he and his players are out for blood in the 2023 campaign. After the team got kicked out of the CONCACAF Champions League, the results in MLS quickly improved. We now anticipate the team’s smooth run to continue as our Philadelphia Union vs New York City predictions prove successful.

Predicted lineup – Bendik (GK), Real, Elliott, Glesnes, Mbaizo, Martinez, Flach, Bedoya, Gazdag, Uhre & Carranza

New York City

The team from New York recorded a whopping six draws in their last seven MLS outings! However, luck won’t be on the menu for the visitors at Subaru Park, as Philly are a pill too big to swallow.

Predicted lineup – Barraza (GK), Haak, Chanot, Gray, Cufre, Parks, Morales, Ilenic, T. M., Rodriguez & Pellegrini

Player to Watch: Mikael Uhre

Forward Mikael Uhre is the second-most productive player at coach Curtin’s disposal this season. The only one to score more frequently is partner-in-crime Carranza, who found the net on 10 occasions.

However, Mikael Uhre’s presence is vital for how the team plays, as he’s the top creator on the team with five assists already. We believe Mikael Uhre’s presence will not only be of huge aid to our Philadelphia Union vs New York City predictions, but even the neutral fans will enjoy his undeniable skills.
