Why you should back Sporting KC

Sporting KC is struggling this season, but the club performs better at home. Sporting KC has three wins and two draws in seven matches at Children’s Mercy Park this season, with New England posting only one win in six road matches. At home, Sporting KC has allowed only six goals in seven matches, and the Revolution haven’t performed at a typical level in 2022. New England already has as many losses this season as they did all of the previous campaign, and the Revolution have allowed seven goals in the last four MLS matches. 

New England has only a 55.8 percent save percentage, and the Revolution recently lost standout Adam Buska, the team’s leading scorer, to a transfer. On Sporting KC’s side is standout forward Johnny Russell, who has six goals in 16 matches across all competitions in 2022, and Russell produced 15 goals and eight assists last season.

Why you should back New England Revolution 

New England won the Supporter’s Shield last season, and the Revolution are led by a highly decorated coach in Bruce Arena. After a wobbly start in 2022, the Revolution are unbeaten in the last five MLS matches, including a draw against an impressive Philadelphia Union side. New England has scored two or more goals in seven of the last eight matches, and the Revolution are in the top five of the MLS in pass percentage at 83.2 percent. 

Midfield Carles Gil is arguably the top player in the league this season, leading the MLS in key passes, crosses, and penalty kicks made with top-five marks in assists and expected assists. This is also a favorable matchup for New England in that Sporting KC is struggling mightily in 2022. Sporting KC is last in the Western Conference in goals, assists and corners, with the worst goal differential in the conference. Sporting KC has only one MLS win since March 26, and New England has the superior statistical profile.
