Austin odds: +115 – 45.5%

Draw odds: +240 – 28.0%

Sporting KC odds: +245 – 26.5%

With a 45.5% win probability ahead of Sunday’s showdown, Austin are the bookmakers’ expected winners. Meanwhile, Sporting KC are on the other side of the spectrum, with a 26.5% likelihood of scooping the three points. Coach Vermes’ boys will hardly be a threat to the home side. Even a draw priced at +240 signals that the home team will take the three points.

Austin vs Sporting KC Lineups & Team News

Austin

Austin’s last league game ended quite positively for them. The 1-4 win at Allianz Field versus Adrian Heath’s Minnesota is surely something to take pride in. Especially when you consider the fact that some of Austin’s key players were ineligible for this brawl. We believe coach Wolff’s boys will be just as lethal at home, and they’ll prove that our Austin vs Sporting KC predictions were correct.

Predicted lineup – Takaoka (GK), Veselinovic, Caicedo, Martins, Raposo, Schopf, Berhalter, Johnson, Cordova, Gauld & White

Sporting KC

Sporting KC rank 10th, and while that is not too bad for a team that spent the better part of the season sitting at the bottom of the Western Conference, you should know that the team has played the full 23 fixtures. Everyone but Colorado Rapids can surpass them in the ranking.

Predicted lineup – McIntosh (GK), Fontas, Rosero, Davis, Leibold, Kinda, Walter, Thommy, Salloi, Pulido & Russell

Player to Watch: Sebastian Driussi

What was most important for coach Wolff in the 1-4 victory over poor Minnesota United is that his top player finally reminded everyone of his tremendous talent. The 2022 Major League Soccer Golden Boot recipient put on a show for the fans at Allianz Field as he bagged a much-important brace for his team. Now, he has six goals to his name in the 2023 campaign, and he managed to surpass partner-in-crime Gallagher. Sebastian Driussi is really an important cog in these Austin vs Sporting Kansas City predictions, as he was in top-notch form last season when he averaged 0.68 goals per game.
