Expert Betting Tips
Real Salt Lake doesn't have the credentials to worry the Columbus Crew in this match. Not at home ground and not after their last big win. On the contrary, Columbus Crew have not gotten to that formidable status just yet despite their big win, so it's possible they might struggle to impress here. So we are backing Columbus Crew to grab a win but not as dominant as that of the previous match because the visitors are not in good form right now.
