What to expect from Columbus Crew vs. New England Revolution

Time: Dec 6, 3:00 p.m. ET

Channel: ABC

Over the course of 2020, the Crew have been a significantly better team than the Revolution. They have a better record, have scored more goals, conceded fewer and enter this game as solid favorites. To add insult to injury for New England, they haven’t beaten the Crew since May 21, 2017.

Not all is lost for the Revolution, though. According to FiveThirtyEight’s SPI, the analytics paint them as a superior team to the Crew both offensively and defensively. It’s also important to give them credit for impressive wins over Philadelphia Union and Orlando City SC—the first and fourth seeds in the East— in these playoffs. Meanwhile, Columbus has only toppled lesser squads and hasn’t looked as dynamic.

If you’re a Crew fan you can be comforted by the strong body of work they put together all season. If you support the Revolution you have to be hoping their recent triumphs indicate they’re on better form in this moment.

What to expect from Seattle Sounders vs. Minnesota United

Time: Dec. 7, 9:30 p.m. ET

Channel: FS1

The Sounders are hoping to reach the MLS Cup for the fourth time in five years, while Minnesota is looking to punch their first ever ticket to the big dance. That’s a pretty stark difference in the success these franchises have had, and how experienced their players are in pressure-packed moments.

That doesn’t mean Minnesota United doesn’t have a shot in this one. So far in the playoffs they’ve scored six goals and put up two clean sheets. Any team that can knock off Sporting KC needs to be taken seriously. However, the preponderance of evidence suggests that the Sounders are the better team here, and if they don’t take care of business it will be a significant upset.

As we’ve seen in these playoffs, though, significant upsets happen all the time.

Who will win the 2020 MLS Cup?

The Philadelphia Union finished the season at the top of the table and led the league in goals and goal differential while posting a perfect home record, but that didn’t save them from an early exit. Toronto FC was the other favorite in the East considering they’d made the MLS Cup Final in three of the last four seasons, but they too went down early. That left the East wide open, with Columbus taking the mantle of conference favorite. The New England Revolution shouldn’t be discounted, though due to their strong underlying numbers, and track record of toppling supposedly superior competition.

In the West, the biggest threats was supposed to be Sporting KC, who posted the best record during the regular season, and the Seattle Sounders, who are the defending champions. Minnesota United shocked Sporting KC with a 3-0 upset, but will be hard-pressed to do the same against the battle-tested Sounders. These playoffs have been so chaotic that there are no sure bets, but Seattle looks on track to make—and likely win— the MLS Cup again.

Here are each team’s odds to win the MLS Cup according to FiveThirtyEight.com:

TeamMLS Cup Odds
Seattle Sounders40%
Columbus Crew SC 29%
New England Revolution17%
Minnesota United14%
