FC Dallas are now Western conference favourites after pulling clear at the top by 6 points after they beat Sporting Kansas City in a thrilling game last week that ended 3-2 to them.

Dallas have been leading the Western conference for much of the season and they will want to wrap up a conference title in style.

Form is decent on the hosts with 7 points earned in their last 4 games and they have gone 3 games without loss. At home they are undefeated and in brilliant form having won 4 games in a row.

San Jose Earthquakes are bottom of the conference, so it is 1st v last here and there is no prize for guessing who will be the favourite priced team to win with the bookmakers.

The Quakes have not won a game for over two months and their away form is very poor with just 1 victory in their last 11 games. This could be the clubs most difficult 90 minutes of the season.
