How To Make Money On Sporting KC
Sporting KC's record is quite similar to Seattle Sounders. Both teams won 10 of 17 home games, with Sporting losing one fewer than their Western Conference rivals. Based on their home records alone, Kansas City would have grabbed the all-important home field advantage in the playoffs.
Unfortunately, their away record let them down. Sporting won three of 17 games on the road, gaining 14 of a possible 51 points. it was the fourth worst conference away record, the worst of any Western Conference playoff teams.
That is obviously Kansas City's main cause for concern. A significant road improvement would put Kansas City in position to host the first-round playoff game. Which is absoltely vital for a team who lacks the quality and guile to win in hostile environments, especially in knockout games.
Kansas can be considered a viable outside futures bet. With a bit of luck, they could go all the way to the MLS Cup final. Anything can happen in the playoffs so long as they secure a coveted home playoff game.
