Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 4th June 2018
Kick-Off at 01:30 UK / 02:30 CET
Venue: Children’s Mercy Park, Kansas City

This week’s action in Major League Soccer is going to be wrapped up at Children’s Mercy Park where Sporting Kansas City welcomes Minnesota United. Hosts are massive favorites to take the win here against a team which started playing in the MLS last season. The odds on home win are at very low 1.25 right now, so we will take a look into some alternatives.

Sporting KC are without a doubt one of the main candidates to win the title this year. After thirteen played matches, this team is sitting at the top of the conference table with 25 points and the best goal difference in the league of +11. The main reason for the good stats is spectacular 6-0 home win against Vancouver Whitecaps in late April. A lot of burden has been carried out but Scottish striker Johnny Russell (bagged five goals so far), and he will surely represent a big threat to visiting defenders.

Minnesota had a rough month. Three games winless streak was finally broken last weekend with 2-0 home win against Montreal. It seems like these two teams enjoy playing against Canadian teams. They are currently sitting in the 9th place with 16 points, which is actually better than last year.

Sporting KC v Minnesota: Head-to-head

  • Despite the fact Minnesota are relatively young MLS team, they already faced Kansas City in eight occasions, winning in only one match while losing five.
  • Interestingly, the last two h2h meetings ended with 1-1 score.
  • The average number of goals scored in their previous duels is at 2.40 per match.

Sporting KC v Minnesota: Prediction

Sporting KC are a strong candidate for the title this season. Even though their form is fantastic lately, I don’t think they will keep a clean sheet against visitors from Minneapolis. Home win and both teams to score is offered at fantastic 2.75 price.

On the other hand, if you are after a big more secure option for this match, consider backing Over 2.5 goals at 1.55. Minnesota scored at least one goal in seven out of their last eight matches.

Sporting KC v Minnesota: Bet Tips

  • Home win & BTTS @ 2.75
  • Over 2.5 FT @ 1.55
