Side: Columbus Crew -125

Miami has been in an offensive slump during their slump, with the team scoring only one goal in their last five games. They are playing a good defensive team that doesn’t give up a lot of goals at home and will struggle offensively once again, so go with the Crew to win this game.

Total: Under 2.5

Columbus is averaging 1.14 goals per game and 1.76 goals per game at home.
