Cincinnati odds: -109 – 51.0%

Draw odds: +250 – 26.0%

Sporting KC odds: +280 – 23.0%

Cincinnati are the bookies’ expected winners ahead of Monday’s Leagues Cup clash, as coach Noonan’s boys contain a sturdy 51.0% win probability at -109. Meanwhile, Sporting KC’s lack of attacking punch is what drove the bookies to give the visitors at TQL Stadium a measly 23.0% shot at the three points.

Cincinnati vs Sporting KC Lineups & Team News

Cincinnati

Cincinnati’s numbers are plain intimidating to look at if you are an MLS coach at the moment. With 15 victories, six draws, and barely two matches lost, coach Pat Noonan can pat himself on the back for a job well done in charge of the club. Sure, Monday’s clash is a Leagues Cup brawl, but our Cincinnati vs Sporting KC predictions are safe, as long as the home side brings that MLS mojo with them.

Predicted lineup – Celentano (GK), Mosquera, Hagglund, Angulo, Barreal, Moreno, Nwobodo, Arias, Acosta, Kubo & Santos

Sporting KC

Sporting Kansas City may rank 11th, but the unsettling news for the fans is that the team has played the entire 25 fixtures. Portland Timbers and LA Galaxy can both surpass Sporting in the race if they manage to win their games. It seems that a sturdy display in MLS is not what’s going to make this one a successful season for Sporting KC. Perhaps a Leagues Cup win over in-form Cincinnati is what might put some smiles on the fans’ faces?

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

Player to Watch: Luciano Acosta

Not only are Cincinnati marching toward the 2023 Major League Soccer title, but they might have the top goalscorer at the end of the season to brag about as well. Luciano Acosta slid it past the goalkeepers on 12 occasions whilst supplying partners in crime with six valuable assists. Bringing 18 returns to coach Noonan is what makes Luciano Acosta not only a valuable asset to the manager but a key cog in our Cincinnati vs Sporting KC predictions.
