Online MLS Betting Odds:
Minnesota United FC
Coming into this matchup sporting a 9-2-14 record, it’s looking like Minnesota will be missing out on this year’s postseason. Right now the club is sitting on 29-points on the season. The 6th seeded Portland Timbers are sitting on 37 on the year. With that in mind, it’s clear Minnesota will have a hard time bridging that 8-point gap. After all, the club has picked up but a single win in their last 5 matchups. Last season Minnesota finished 19th in the MLS and by the looks of it, they’ll be right at the bottom of the league once again. Furthermore, Minnesota United FC’s -12 goal differential on the year makes it perfectly clear that they have some defensive issues. Kansas City will be looking to capitalize on those issues this Saturday.
Players to Watch: Darwin Quintero (19 GP, 10 G, 7 A), Miguel Ibarra (24 GP, 6 G, 6 A), and Ibson (23 GP, 4 G, 1 A).
Sporting Kansas City
Coming into this matchup with a 12-6-6 record, it’s easy to see why Sporting Kansas City is pegged as this weekend’s betting favorite. All in all their 42 points on the season puts them in an excellent position within the Western Conference. Right now FC Dallas leads the West with 46 points on the year but Sporting isn’t too far behind. This matchup will be the third time this season these two clubs have crossed paths. So far Sporting has gotten the best of Minnesota since they beat them once and drew against them the other time.
Players to Watch: Johnny Russell (21 GP, 8 G, 3 A), Daniel Salloi (22 GP, 7 G, 7 A), and Diego Rubio (14 GP, 6 G, 3 A).
