One of MLS’ charter clubs, meaning they have played since the inaugural season, is New England Revolution. Known as the Revs, New England play from the Gillette Stadium and are well supported despite the fact they have never won a major domestic league trophy, although they have been extremely close on a number of occasions. New England has reached the MLS Cup final five times, namely in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2014, losing all five games, an unwanted record that earned them the a tongue-in-cheek nickname “the Buffalo Bills of MLS.”
They were also the MLS Supporters’ Shield runners-up in 2005, although they did win the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup in 2007 after being runners-up in 2001.
New England’s main rivals are the New York Red Bulls due to other Boston-New York rivalries in other North American sports. There is a lesser rivalry with NYCFC, another New York team who began playing in the MLS in 2015.
During the 2016 MLS season, New England traded Kei Kamara from Columbus Crew SC, could the talented forward fire his new team to some much overdue glory this season?.

New England Revolution Standings Right Now
New England finished fifth in the Eastern Conference in 2015, and their fans would like a higher finish in 2016, along with a good playoff run. Is that likely to happen? Let’s see what the New England Revolution standings are right now.
How To Win At New England Revolution Betting
New England Revolution are typically very strong at home, but their away records leave much to be desired. That said, they drew six home games in 2015 (9-2-6) and that needs to improve during 2016 and beyond.
It was a home record that was the worst out of the six teams who reached the playoffs from the Eastern Conference in 2015. Had they won three of the six game they drew, New England would have finished in second place.
Away from their home, New England finished with a 5-10-2 record in 2015, which again needs to improve. Even Orlando City, who finished seventh, had a better away record than New England.
A good bet to make money on the New England Revolution could be for Kei Kamara to be the MLS top scorer. He left Columbus on bad terms, and will be determined to show his old club what they have let go.
Kamara is a highly-rated forward who found the back of the net 27 times in 41 games for his old club, and after how he left Columbus, it is highly likely that Kamara will be taking any penalty kicks that The Revs are awarded in 2016.
