Austin odds: +260 – 26.9%

Draw odds: +245 – 28.1%

Los Angeles odds: +110 – 45.0%

Over 2.5 Goals is a popular pick for Austin vs Los Angeles, as it is currently priced by the bookies at +104, giving it a sturdy 49.02% likelihood. Furthermore, Los Angeles are the bookies’ expected winners at Q2 Stadium, as they have a 45.0% win probability. Coach Cherundolo’s boys truly have the three points up for grabs, as Austin’s 26.9% win probability will amount to nothing.

Austin vs Los Angeles Lineups & Team News

Austin

With nine victories, eight draws, and 14 losses, it’s clear that Austin aren’t going to qualify for the final series playoffs. The team is currently sitting in 12th and coach Wolff’s boys need at least six points to book their tickets to the playoffs – an almost impossible task to achieve.

Predicted lineup – Stuver (GK), Gallagher, Vaisanen, Cascante, Lima, Wolff, Valencia, Pereira, Ring, Rigoni & Finlay

Los Angeles

Coach Steven Cherundolo’s side isn’t as dominating as we got used to seeing them be back in 2022. The team is in 4th and will play in the final series, but with 12 victories, nine draws, and 10 losses, it’s fair to say the team is showing a lack of consistency these days.

Predicted lineup – Crepeau (GK), Hollingshead, Murillo, Long, Palacios, Tillman, Ilie, Acosta, Olivera, Vela & Bouanga

Player to Watch: Sebastian Driussi

Sebastian Driussi is the 2022 Major League Soccer Top Goalscorer winner but he isn’t exactly up to par for Austin during this campaign. Sure, he’s still at the top of the table in the goalscoring chart for the club, but he’s definitely not the same player as he was last year. Sebastian Driussi wasn’t among the starters for Austin in last week’s game versus Colorado Rapids, and perhaps that was the reason why coach Wolff’s boys got piped by the weakest team in the league. We expect to see Driussi on the bench for Sunday’s match, and that might throw a wrench in our Austin vs Los Angeles predictions.
