Key New England vs Sporting Kansas City Predictions, Picks, and Betting Lines

Surely, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the New England Revolution vs Sporting Kansas City brawl at Gillette Stadium on the 23rd of April, would you? We expect a one-sided affair between the two teams but you’ll read more about it in our New England vs Sporting Kansas City betting tips.

New England/New England

Gillette Stadium will be used as a weapon on the 23rd of April by New England. Bruce Arena is one of the most experienced managers in MLS. The 71-year-old is perfectly aware of the benefits of playing at home.

New England Revolution won four games on the spin versus Sporting Kansas City since 2014. It’s highly unlikely that the latter will be able to pick themselves up from the dust at this very moment. After all, they are at the bottom of the table, and for a good reason. Their attacking record this season is simply laughable.

Under 0.5 Sporting Kansas City Goals

A key factor behind our New England vs Sporting Kansas City predictions is the fact that the visitors lack attacking punch. They have scored barely two goals in eight MLS games this season.

They haven’t won a game yet and things aren’t looking good for coach Peter Vermes and his boys who’ll have to somehow overcome New England’s watertight defense.

New England odds: -142 – 57.0%

Draw odds: +295 – 24.0%

Sporting Kansas City odds: +375 – 19.0%

A measly 19.0% win probability at +375 is what the bookies have for Sporting Kansas City’s fans this week. Quite the sad numbers but seeing as Sporting KC’s display is as poor as it is, it’s no wonder why New England are the expected winners with a solid 57.0% chance on Sunday.

New England vs Sporting Kansas City Lineups & Team News

New England

Coach Bruce Arena should count himself lucky that his team didn’t lose the Columbus Crew game last week. Sure, the Crew stole a point in the 98th minute of the game when a Sean Zadanski goal shocked New England but Columbus Crew were by far the better of the two teams on the pitch. They had more shots at target, shots on target, and 60% possession.

Predicted lineup – Petrovic (GK), Jones, Romney, Farrell, Bye, Buck, Polster, Blessing, Gil, Bajraktarevic & Vrioni

Sporting Kansas City

Sporting Kansas City and LA Galaxy are the only two teams in MLS who have yet to record their first-ever 2023 campaign win. While the latter have a significant chance to do so as team captain Chicharito is now fit and ready for action, the same could not be said about Sporting who are at the bottom of the table with barely three points to their name.

Predicted lineup – Melia (GK), Voloder, Fontas, Rosero, Zusi, Espinoza, Walter, Thommy, Salloi, Russell & Pulido

Player to Watch: Bobby Wood

Not that Booby Wood needs to prove anything. He’s already one of the most prolific MLS goalscorers in recent years. It’s just that Bruce Arena is going to need the 30-year-old on top of his game if our New England vs Sporting Kansas City predictions are to become successful.

Last week, Dylan Borrero earned himself a foolish 65th-minute red card against Columbus Crew and will now, unfortunately, miss the Sporting Kansas City clash. However, New England don’t lack attacking punch as long as Wood is on the pitch.
