Week 25 Results: 0-2-0 (64-51-8 OVR / +1.24% ROI / +3.18 units)
Indy Eleven to Win (-125, ★★★★): Expect some squad rotation tonight from Tim Hankinson, but there's value in expecting Indy's home unbeaten streak to continue with a victory. Carolina has the highest road losing percentage (64.29%) in the NASL, while the Eleven boast an incredible 78.57% winning percentage at Michael A. Carroll. Indy will earn three home points once again.
Minnesota United Draw No Bet (-120, ★★★): Each of the last two weeks I've suggested a heavy fade of FC Edmonton, and both times it backfired in spectacular fashion. The Eddies poor offensive performances did finally catch up to them on Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale, however, in a 1-0 loss -- albeit with a heavily rotated squad.
Minnesota's recent form has been utterly atrocious (no wins in their last six), and it certainly wouldn't surprise me if they drop points in this one -- but Colin Miller's side hasn't won on the road in two months, and I have a hard time imagining that this changes today.
It might not seem like it, but I also think there's value in the United win/draw double chance, even at -275.
