Chicago Fire play their home games at Toyota Park, in Bridgeview, Illinois. Known as the “Men in Red” by loyal supporters, the Fire have tasted MLS success on numerous occasions, but have struggled of late. Their list of accolades inlcudes both the U.S. Open Cup and MLS Cup in 1998, the Supporters’ Shield in 2003, and additional U.S. Open Cups in 2000, 2003, and 2006. Chicago Fire and their fans will want to forget about the 2015 and 2016 seasons as they finished rock bottom of the league in both years.

How To Make Money On Chicago Fire
This can be a difficult situation to solve, especially considering how bad this team has been in recent memory. Betting against them is always a viable option but your returns will be miniscule on the moneyline. Consider betting against them in as part of a bigger parlay if that’s the route you want to take.
The Fire conceded 58 goals in both the 2015 and 2016 campaigns. They had the worst defence in 2015 and the second worst in 2016 so you might think betting the over is your best bet. It would be, but unfortunately this team doesn’t really score too much either. They had one of the lowest-scoring offences in both seasons so you’ll have to dig deeper into the analytics to get a more holistic perspective.
You can, however, be fairly certain this team won’t win away from home. The Fire picked up one measly win on their travels during the 2016 season. Overall, Chicago amassed five points from a possible 51 on the road. You can most definitely bet against the Fire when they are on the road unless a drastic change takes place at the club.
There has been an influx of new players during the offseason, which is reason for optimism in Chicago. Dax McCarty, Nemanja Nikolic and Juninho have joined the team, which should buoy this abject franchise.
