Kansas City is in intermediate second place, one point behind the direct ticket to the quarterfinals. In addition, they have the best-attacking line in the conference; however, they are regularly missing – 39 goals in 33 rounds. By the way, at home, the team suffered only two defeats in nine matches.
Sporting has lost points in the last two matches. At first, they failed against Minnesota (1:2) and Austin (1:3) in away games. Salt Lake is one step away from reaching the playoffs, with only two points missing. The only thing is that only 14 points out of 45 were scored away, taking into account the four matches won. On average, a team on a foreign field misses just over two goals per match. At the end of October, they could not make a comeback with San Jose (3:4), after which Portland Timbers (1:3) was stronger.
In our opinion, the bet should be made in favour of Kansas City. The team is in second place, but getting directly to the quarterfinals would give extra days off. In addition, they play at home, where the team scores most of the points. Guests are just disgusting and almost do not create moments. It will be challenging to open a reliable defence of a more famous enemy.
Our forecast is a 1.70 victory for Kansas City. In our opinion, many teams will not be able to score goals. The guests need points to get to the playoffs, and they will act in defence with caution, so you should not expect many goals from the favourite. In turn, the hosts also need three points, so they will not give the opponent freedom in the attack. We take the total number of goals under 2.5 for 2.43.
