Sporting Kansas City vs FC Dallas 11 July 2017: MLS Open Cup Preview and Predictions

USA TODAY Sports

We have reached the quarter final stage of the MLS Open Cup and as a result we see a match-up between two of better teams in the competition as Sporting Kansas City play host to FC Dallas in what should be a great game to watch between two sets of teams that will be desperate to win.

Both times these two teams have met this year we have seen tight games with FC Dallas winning their home fixture 1-0 while the Sporting Kansas City home fixture ended as a 0-0 draw. In general these two teams tend to play out low scoring games and this being a knockout fixture might further mean that this game ends up as a low scoring contest. This means one thing in terms of betting and that is we should be betting on the under 2.5 goals bet since that is where the value lies.

In terms of result, I think we are better of betting on the home side here in Sporting Kansas City. The two teams are very evenly matched and when it comes to winning a tight game like this one, I think we should always go for the home side because I think it will be the home crowd that gets the team over the line.

All in all this should be a great quarter-final clash between two great teams but as it stands I like the under 2.5 goals and Sporting Kansas City to win a tight clash in front of their home fans.

 

Pick:
Under 2.5 goals
