Lionel Messi turning down a reported three-year, $1.6 billion payday from the Saudi Pro League is dominating world soccer headlines, and his new team, Inter Miami CF, will be in action on Saturday. Messi won't join the squad until July but the last-place squad will take on the New England Revolution with designs on making a move that will allow them to get into playoff contention when their superstar arrives. New England is currently fourth in the MLS Eastern Conference standings but neither team has managed a victory in their last five matches.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., where the Revolution are unbeaten in seven matches (four wins and three draws) this season. Caesars Sportsbook lists New England as the -205 favorites (risk $205 to win $100) in the latest New England Revolution vs. Inter Miami odds, with Inter Miami listed as the +525 underdogs.

Why you should back the New England Revolution
New England has only lost three times all season and enters Saturday's match unbeaten at home. An experienced roster is led by American Bobby Wood and Spain's Carles Gil, who have both scored five goals so far this season. Both players are 30 years old and have proven track records of scoring goals for every club they've played for.
Meanwhile, 23-year-old Serbian goalkeeper Dorde Petrovic has provided a valiant last line of defense for Bruce Arena's club. Petrovic has a 77.5% save percentage and is coming off a clean sheet in his last game against Atlanta United. Petrovic had his second cap for Serbia earlier in the year and he's blanked six of 16 opponents so far during the MLS season. See who to back at SportsLine.
Why you should back Inter Miami
Inter Miami will likely use their 2-1 victory over the Revolution on May 13 as a blueprint. Honduran teenager David Ruiz had a massive game in that win, scoring a goal in the sixth minute and then assisting on Josef Martinez's goal in the 44th minute.
However, Inter Miami have lost five matches in a row since that win with four of those losses coming by a single goal. They won't get the boost of Messi being added to the roster until later this year, but the club should be taking drastic measures to the right the ship to make a playoff push when the superstar arrives.
