With both sides proving prolific in front of goal so far this season, Al Hain-Cole expects plenty of goal-scoring action to unfold at either end in a tight match at Sporting ParkLA Galaxy will be hoping to defend the longest unbeaten streak in the MLS when they travel to Sporting Park to take on Sporting Kansas City on Saturday.
Having not lost in eight matches, Bruce Arena’s side are available at 5/2 (3.50) to continue their fine form with an impressive victory.
However, the hosts currently lead the Eastern Conference after winning four and drawing one of their last five and are 11/10 (2.10) favourites to come out on top.
Peter Vermes’ men have actually drawn each of their previous three league matches on home turf, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them dropping another two points once again.
While they come into this match as the form team in the league, the visitors will be aware of the task facing them at the home of the current Eastern Conference leaders.
Fortunately, Los Galacticos travel east in high spirits after thrashing New England Revolution on Wednesday, with Gyasi Zardes continuing his prolific streak by matching top scorer Robbie Keane’s two-goal haul in a 5-1 victory.
Although goal-scoring should therefore not be an issue, they will be up against it to keep things tight at the other end against a team that have failed to find the net just once in their last 14 matches.
With this in mind, odds of 4/5 (1.80) look too good to pass up on both teams getting on the score sheet, as they have in five of the hosts’ last six home games and six of their guests’ previous eight.
In fact, with both teams seemingly well matched in attack, it seems likely that they will cancel each other out for the fourth time in five encounters, which you can back at 10/3 (4.33).
That bet would have paid out in the Wizards’ last three league home games and four of Galaxy’s previous eight away from home.
