Market: Both teams score
Chance: 8/11 @ 888sport
Feeling a real possibility of extending what has been a purple patch this year, Sporting KC will welcome FC Dallas at Children’s Mercy Park early Sunday morning.
Starting with the hosts, who fielded what was another hugely impressive performance earlier in the week and worked their way to a stunning 3-1 away win in Seattle, Sporting KC are now aiming to keep the Western Conference crown. Now sitting just two points behind The Sounders, Peter Vermes’ men have picked up 13 points in just their last five MLS games, including another 3-1 win over the Colorado Rapids last month. With the mood at their best, Wizards should sniff out another chance when they return to Children’s Mercy Park in the early hours of Sunday. However, it should also be noted, along with each of their last five consecutive home games, Sporting KC have seen seven of their home games finished this season with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, while Dallas may have endured what many would call a nightmare start to the new campaign, The Hoops shocked many across America last time around. Luchi Gonzalez’s side, which marked a real turning point in one of the best performances of the season, beat the LA Galaxy by four with a thrilling performance on home turf. Capturing only their second MLS win since May 2, the Western Conference team now have their sights set on a charge for Final Series seats. Seeking to cause what would be an upheaval on the road this weekend, there’s no question Gonzalez will call in top marksman Ricardo Pepi to lead their charge in Kansas. Making a hat-trick against Galaxy last time, the 18-year-old star has now scored seven goals in her last eight outings in MLS.
Bet: Both teams will score at Sporting KC vs FC Dallas 8/11 for Sunday’s MLS showdown @ 888sport
