Minnesota United +190

Minnesota has lost each of its six regular season MLS matches on the road versus Sporting Kansas City by a combined score of 15-1 but the Loons are coming off a hard fought draw against LAFC and battling for a spot in the MLS postseason. Sporting Kansas City has a very outside shot at reaching the postseason but will lose that opportunity after falling at home to Minnesota on Saturday. Final Score Prediction, Minnesota United wins 2-1.
