FC Dallas v Sporting Kansas City betting preview
FC Dallas were among the trophies in the USA last season, winning both the Supporters Shield and the MLS Cup before eventually failing to go on and win the domestic treble. Having competed in the CONCACAF Champions League over the last few months they also came so close to reaching the final of that competition before losing out to Pachuca at the semi-final stage.
It's been an unsurprisingly strong start to the new campaign for Toros this time around and they've clearly taken momentum from last year's successes into the new season as they've kicked off with three wins and two draws from their opening five games. With two of those victories coming on home soil, it's no surprise that the hosts are favourites here at 5/6 with BetVictor
Sporting Kansas City have enjoyed a terrific start to the season too as they look to earn a play-off spot this year in the Western Conference. The Wizards have begun the season with a six game unbeaten run, picking up three wins and three draws from their opening fixtures as they sit just one point off the top spot in their conference with a game in hand on frontrunners Portland Timbers.
What's more, Peter Vermes' showed just how good they could be by beating the Oregon-based side away from home last week and they'll feel if they can win at Providence Park, they have the ability and crucially the confidence to go to the Toyota Stadium and pick up another three points on the road here at odds of 15/4 with Coral
Both of these sides are strong going forward. Sporting KC can call upon the likes of Gerso Fernandes and Dom Dwyer in attack, whereas Dallas have the likes of Maximilliano Urruti and Kellyn Acosta who will prove to be a real threat in this game. Both teams to score accas are always a good way to go when looking for MLS multiples and we'll be adding this game to our BTTS acca this weekend at odds of 19/20 with bet365
That man Urruti enjoyed a solid first season with Dallas last season and he's enjoyed a decent start to this current campaign too. Despite playing in only four of his side's games so far, the Argentinian striker has found the net three times and he also found the net in the first leg CONCACAF Champions League win over Pachuca last month. He's our anytime scorer pick for this game at 11/8 with Sky Bet
