That’s far above their Week 14 opponents Sporting Kansas Metropolis who’re 2-4-7, 10 factors and thirteenth within the convention.
St. Louis has misplaced three straight throughout all comps and two in a row to Chicago in each league play and the US Open Cup. St. Louis’ goalscoring has dropped. From 15 targets of their first 5 MLS matches, to seven of their subsequent six, and 5 of these coming in a single 5-1 win. But nonetheless, they’ve scored in 3/4, 8/11 and in 4/5 at house. A few of their latest goalscoring points have been as a result of absense of main scorer Joao Klauss who’s been out since April 22. Nonetheless, Klauss was in coaching this week and is listed as questionable on the MLS harm experiences.
Peter Vermes is getting injured items again to his lineup as effectively in Kansas Metropolis and the group has been slowly bettering in latest weeks. Sporting pulled a shock 2-1 house win over Seattle in Week 11 and adopted that up with a 3-0 house win Minnesota. In midweek play they went into Los Angeles and drew 1-1 with LAFC.

These groups are simply 4 hours away from eachother taking part in in Kansas and Missouri and whereas they haven’t performed in MLS but, there may be nonetheless an enormous rivalry between them.
Residence matches in St. Louis are 4-1 to Over 2.5 totals this season. With an electic ambiance, Klauss probably that includes and SKC starting to spherical into kind in time for this rivalry, I believe we see an entertaining match with loads of targets.

FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Prediction
It’s uncommon to not see targets in Hell Is Actual. Scorelines final season had been 2-2 and 2-0 (CLB). In 2021 they had been 2-2 and 3-2 (CLB). And in 2020 they had been 2-1 (CIN) and 3-0 (CLB).
It’s uncommon to see a highway group successful although. A highway group hasn’t received in any of the previous seven conferences. That’s unhealthy information for a Columbus group that has only one highway win of their previous 12 going again to final July. They’ve although, managed to scored a objective in 13/14 highway video games, with that streak simply ending of their final highway sport in Charlotte.
After a 3-0 win at house to Montreal, FCC is tops within the Supporters’ Protect standings with 27 factors and so they’re nonetheless excellent at TQL Stadium at 7-0-0. At house they’ve scored 12 targets in comparison with simply three conceded.
However the Crew are the league’s highest scoring group with 23 targets. They received 2-0 at house to the Galaxy in midweek, marking the sixth time they’ve scored a number of targets this season. They’ve scored at the least as soon as in 11 of their 12 video games.
Cincinnati hasn’t misplaced of their final 4 house video games versus Columbus however the Crew have misplaced only one in ten MLS head-to-heads with Cincy. One thing has to offer. I see a objective from all sides for my Week 14 MLS picks right here.

New York Purple Bulls vs CF Montreal Prediction
Montreal lately defeated NYRB 2-0 at house. However that was at house and this time they’ll be on the highway the place they’re a woeful 1-0-6, with a -15 goal-differential. CF Montreal had been using a four-match successful streak in MLS and six-match successful streak throughout all comps heading into their midweek sport with Cincinnati. These streaks got here to a crashing halt as they fell behind 2-0 26′ minutes into the sport on their strategy to a 3-0 defeat.
Whereas that match went over the full of two.5, Montreal has performed to many Unders this season at 8-4. Low-scoring video games are nothing new to the Purple Bulls who’re 12-1 to Underneath 2.5 totals after Wednesday’s 0-0 attract Toronto.
Purple Bulls’ matches common the bottom complete targets per sport at simply 1.5. Their xGA of 10.1 ranks first within the league and so they’re first in each opponent shot makes an attempt and pictures on the right track.
New York has allowed 88 shot makes an attempt with the following lowest being LAFC with 112. Their 30 pictures on the right track allowed is 5 higher than Philly’s 35.
Montreal owns the bottom xG (11.8) within the East and twenty seventh ranked within the league. Their 40 pictures on the right track is barely higher than three groups (Chicago, San Jose and Houston).
The Purple Bulls have thrre straight clear sheets total underneath new head coach Troy Lesesne. In the meantime, Montreal has both been shut out or shut out their opponents in 11/12 video games to date. That makes betting each groups to attain “No” in Montreal video games 11-1, however we’ll simply again the Underneath in our MLS predictions for this one.

FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo Prediction
Dallas is powerful at house. They’re 4-1-1 and simply received 2-1 over Vancouver on Wednesday.
Houston is poor on the highway. They’re 0-1-4, have solely scored three highway targets, are the one group with only one away level and simply misplaced 1-0 in Minnesota on Wednesday.
A highway group successful on this rivalry is like seeing the Yeti. You simply don’t see it. It hasn’t occurred since 2017 over the course of the previous 17 head-to-heads. Throw in three preseason video games and that streak is 20.
You do see targets although. Final yr Dallas received 2-1 and the groups additionally drew 2-2. In 2021 Houston received 3-2 and the groups additionally drew 2-2 and 1-1. They performed within the preseason this yr and the Dynamo received 2-0 at house, for no matter preseason play is price.
Dallas not often permits a couple of objective when taking part in at house. It’s been 16 video games at Toyota Stadium since they allowed greater than a single objective. However they do enable a single objective usually. Of these 16 video games, they’ve conceded in 14 of them, in addition to in 14 of 16.
Given the house group’s success on this rivalry, Houston’s present poor highway kind and Jesus Ferreira being scorching with three targets in two video games for FCD, I’ll again a Dallas win for my MLS picks.
