Sporting KC odds: +115 – 46.1%

Draw odds: +250 – 23.0%

Philadelphia Union odds: +220 – 30.9%

According to the odds in our Sporting KC vs Philadelphia Union prediction, we have coach Peter Vermes’ boys down as the expected winners this week. They keep a sturdy 46.1% win probability at +115 but we believe the visitors have a better chance of making something happen at Children’s Mercy Park, despite the odds at +220 suggesting a lackluster 30.9% shot at the three points.

Sporting KC vs Philadelphia Union Lineups & Team News

Sporting KC

We have Gazdag and his colleagues down as favorites in our Sporting KC vs Philadelphia Union prediction, as coach Vermes’ side was horrible in their opening MLS match. Sure, they chipped a point away from Houston Dynamo, but with barely two shots on target, they don’t look sharp for the start of the 2024 MLS campaign.

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

Philadelphia Union

16 shots at target, six shots on target, and a whopping 57.0% possession weren’t enough for Philly to beat Chicago Fire last week. We are sure that coach Jim Curtin’s side has what it takes to prove our Sporting KC vs Philadelphia Union predictions correct, and we can’t wait for the kick-off at Children’s Mercy Park.

Predicted lineup – Semmie (GK), Harriel, Glesnes, Lowe, Wagner, Martinez, Sullivan, McGlynn, Gazdag, Carranza & Uhre

Player to Watch: Daniel Gazdag

Daniel Gazdag was the hero for coach Jim Curtin in last week’s clash at Subaru Park. Chicago Fire came surprisingly well-prepared, but Gazdag’s undeniable skill with the ball proved decisive as Philadelphia Union managed to at least chip a point away from their rivals.

Daniel scored one of the goals for his team, and we are sure that with him among the starters, coach Jim Curtin’s side can’t fail.
