Seattle Sounders vs Sporting KC Predictions and Betting Lines

The David vs Goliath battle in MLS on matchday 11 features Seattle Sounders vs Sporting KC. We wouldn’t want to spoil anything, you’ll read more about it in our Seattle Sounders vs Sporting KC betting tips, but the visiting fans won’t remember this match fondly.

Seattle Sounders to Win

We partially base our Seattle Sounders vs Sporting KC predictions on the fact that coach Brian Schmetzer’s side has an outstanding 60.0% win probability for this brawl. Surely, if the visitors don’t show us something unorthodox, we’re in for a one-sided affair on Sunday.

After all, Seattle Sounders have the home-field support at Lumen Field and Brian Schmetzer will tell his boys to go all-out in search of the three points. The fans surely want nothing less than the full set of points and the players are very well aware.

The home team has a slight head-to-head advantage with three victories and two losses in the last five matches.

Under 0.5 Sporting KC Goals

Despite having some good games versus Seattle Sounders in the past, we highly believe Sunday’s clash will be one of Sporting KC’s poorest games this season. They’ll have to cope with the pressure of playing at one of the more intimidating venues in MLS and that’s never a good sign.

Furthermore, they scored barely three goals this season! Three goals in 10 MLS games!

And coach Peter Vermes will somehow have to motivate his boys to find Seattle Sounders’ net. The home team already proved to be a force to be reckoned with as coach Brian Schmetzer’s boys conceded only seven goals in the 2023 MLS campaign.

Seattle Sounders vs Sporting KC Lineups & Team News

Seattle Sounders

With six victories, two draws, and barely two losses, Seattle Sounders are feeling quite comfortably at the top of the table in the Western Conference of MLS. Coach Brian Schmetzer’s boys earned 20 points and are surely raring to go against Sporting KC as early predictions say the three points are already in Brian Schmetzer’s bag.

Predicted lineup – Frei (GK), Tolo, Ragen, Gomez, Roldan, Vargas, Rusnak, Chu, Lodeiro, Morris & Heber

Sporting KC

Sporting KC could only score three goals this season. The 2023 MLS campaign is far from going the way Peter Vermes hoped at the beginning. It would take one hell of an effort on the visitors’ part to cause a dent in our Seattle Sounders vs Sporting KC predictions. After all, coach Peter Vermes’ boys are still searching for their first 2023 win.

Predicted lineup – Melia (GK), Ndenbe, Voloder, Rosero, Duke, Espinoza, Walter, Thommy, Salloi, Rusell & Pulido

Player to Watch: Jordan Morris

Despite Los Angeles’ Denis Bouanga’s terrific run of games, it’s Jordan Morris who’s topping MLS’ goalscoring charts so far. The 28-year-old has been ever-present this season and managed to score eight goals for his manager.

Brian Schmetzer is one lucky manager! Most MLS coaches would kill to have such a lethal finisher on their roster. Jordan Morris’ goals amount to 50.0% of Seattle Sounders’ goals this season! Coach Brian Schmetzer would be a fool to leave Morris out of the starting XI for Sporting KC.
