FC Dallas have not done a good job in their last four matches and are now in need of points. They are standing at the last of the playoff spots and will look to keep it that way, or improve, when they will host Kansas on Sunday. Sporting Kansas City have already been eliminated from the playoff chase. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they will not fight for something here.

Spread: FC Dallas -1
Total: 3.25 Goals
FC Dallas (12-12-9) are coming off a bad 0-3 loss on the road against Colorado. They were not very bad in that match but their opponents took an early lead. The Rapids were leading by two at the end of the first half and even missed a penalty kick. Dallas tried their best but conceded another goal to eventually lose by 0-3, and are now on a four-match win-less streak (0-2-2). Dallas are sitting at the 7th spot of the Western Conference with 45 points, one behind Portland, one ahead of San Jose and three ahead of Colorado. Failing to win here could potentially drop them outside of the playoff spots. But they have been really strong at home (9-1-6).
On the other hand, Sporting Kansas City (10-15-8) played a really physical match at home against Portland last week. Their opponents took an early lead but Kansas pulled even on an instant. Both teams faced a red card each in the first half, with Portland scoring a late equalizer for the final 2-2. That draw came after four consecutive losses for Kansas, where they conceded 14 goals in total. Sporting Kansas City are now sitting 10th in the Western Conference with 38 points and the worst defense in the Conference with 61 conceded goals. Their away record is nothing special (3-9-4), losing five of their last six.
FC Dallas beat Sporting KC by 2-0 on the road earlier in the season but it is Kansas who have the upper hand in the last five matches (3-2-0). They might have won in their last trip here but that was their only win in the last six matches here (1-3-2). FC Dallas need a win to book their ticket, so I am backing them up here.
