Expert Betting Tips
Personally I had high hopes for DC United but unfortunately not much has changed since last season. Chicago Fire on the other hand have just come off with their first win but there’s no indication that there will be a follow up. DC United have the habit of scoring even in the most difficult games, so Chicago Fire cannot afford to not find the net here or they’re beaten. At Least both teams should find the back of the net once.
