The Red Bulls won the Eastern Conference crown in 2015 and made it to the Eastern Conference semi-finals before being ousted by Montreal Impact. Based in Harrison, New Jersey, rather than central New york itself, the Red Bulls are one of the original ten MLS teams. Originally known as the New York Metro Stars, the current franchise was led by former Barcelona superstar Thierry Henry in their 2015 title-winning year. He retired at the end of that season.
Known as the Red Bulls since 2006, they have won the Supporters Shield twice, in 2013 and 2015.
Although well-known beforehand, The Red Bulls made a raft of high-profile signings in 2010 which attracted global attention. French superstar striker Thierry Henry and Mexican central defender Rafael Márquez both signed for the team.
It showed the intent of the franchise. They are bonafide contenders every season and, thus, draw some of the best talent around. It's only a matter of time before the Red Bulls win the MLS Cup.

How To Make Money On New York Red Bulls
This team is built to win now. They were the Eastern Conference top seeds in 2016 and score bundles of goals, largely thanks to their talisman and defending Golden Boot winner Bradley Wright Phillips. Phillips topped the goal-scoring charts in 2016 with 24 goals. That was one more than rival New York City FC striker, David Villa.
The Red Bulls had the second most prolific offense in the league in 2016. They scored 62 goals in 34 games, bagging almost two per game. And their defense, while not incredible, is substantially better than their cross-city rivals.
Conceding 44 goals, the Red Bulls had the second stingiest defense in the Eastern Conference. Only Toronto FC conceded fewer.
It depends on who they play whether to bank on the over or under. While the score freely, the Red Bulls have an organised and capable backline. Woeful on the road, you might consider betting against New York on their travels. They won only three of 17 matches away from home, which for a supposed elite team, is extremely poor.
Contrastingly, New York performed admirably at home. They enjoyed the best home record in the league, winning 13 of 17 games in the friendly confines of Red Bull Arena. If New York sort out their gruesome away form, they'll be clear favorites to win the MLS Cup.
They can't possibly be any worse away in coming years so the Red Bulls are a great future bet. A wealth of talent at their disposal, it's only a matter of time before they jump over the final hurdle and win the MLS Cup.
