Market: Charleston win
Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport
Looking to make it three wins on the bounce when they make the trip to Segra Field on Wednesday at midnight, Charleston will face off against Loudoun.
Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another horror display over the weekend, Loudoun find themselves in the midst of a real USL crisis. Showing a host of issues at the back once again, the Eastern Conference strugglers were eventually hit with a deserved 3-1 defeat away at Tampa Bay. Already sat rock-bottom of the table and chasing a seven-point deficit, Head Coach Ryan Martin finds growing pressure on his position at Segra Field. Facing what should be another stern test on home soil in midweek, Loudoun are in the midst of a four-match losing run and have mustered just six points since opening the 2021 campaign. More worrying for Martin, it should also be noted that Wednesday’s hosts have lost five of their opening six home fixtures so far this year.
As for the visitors, while the midweek hosts might be enduring a real USL nightmare, Charleston find themselves enjoying what has been a recent boost. Looking to find a way into the Final Series places, Head Coach Mike Anhaeuser last saw his side put in another eye-catching display over the weekend. Picking up a 2-0 victory against Charlotte Independence on home soil and now claiming back-to-back victories, the Battery should be smelling a golden chance on the road this week. Landing a thumping 3-0 win when they last faced off against Loudoun back on June 26th, they have landed back-to-back wins against the Eastern Conference strugglers and we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Charleston 6/5 to beat Loudoun United in Wednesday’s USL Championship matchup @ 888sport
