Inter Miami vs. Sporting Kansas City: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Inter Miami suffered disappointment this week as they were knocked out of the CONCACAF Champions Cup by Mexican side Monterrey, losing 5-2 on aggregate.

That came despite the return of Lionel Messi from injury and makes it five games without a win for the Herons, who face a trip to Sporting Kansas City as they look to get back on track.

Sporting Kansas City vs Inter Miami betting picks and predictions

Draw (+260)

Inter Miami had a good start to their first full season with Lionel Messi playing for the Herons but they have struggled with the Argentinian absent through injury.

Their talisman returned against Monterrey but was not able to inspire a victory and his side are now out of the CONCACAF Champions Cup. The Herons have struggled on the road this season, winning just one of their five games away from Chase Stadium.

They face a fairly tight turnaround to get to Kansas City for this matchup and discipline has been an issue for Gerardo Martino’s men, they have picked up red cards in two of their last three games.

Defense has been a particular issue for Miami in recent weeks, they have now conceded 12 times in their last five games and they will need to sharpen up majorly if they are to get anything out of this Kansas City team.

Sporting Kansas City have been in solid form in MLS this season: they have only lost one of their seven games, and they have broken the deadlock in five of those seven matches.

Their failure to pick up more wins - they only have two victories and four ties plus a loss - will be a disappointment but they have been solid enough to prove that they will be a tough assignment for Inter Miami.

The home team are one of the top scorers in the Western Conference and they can put their goalscoring abilities to good use in this game.

Sporting have tied four of their seven games this season and the fact that they have only lost one outing all term shows they will be tough for Inter Miami to get the better of.

In a tight betting heat, the tie stands out at +260 given the away team’s struggles in recent weeks and their road record leaving plenty to be desired.

Sporting Kansas City are solid but may not be able to blow Inter Miami away and could have to settle for a stalemate.

Over 3.5 Total Goals (+162)

One thing that has been a consistent factor in both team’s seasons has been goals. Kansas City's last three MLS matches have finished with four goals or more and their seven games have had a total of 22 goals.

In Sporting KC's seven games, both teams have scored in six of them. This weekend, both teams are fancied to play their part in an entertaining game.

Eight of Inter Miami’s ten games in all competitions so far this year have produced four or more goals and the return of Lionel Messi to their lineup seriously bulks up their attacking options.

The +162 about over 3.5 goals makes plenty of appeal considering the fact that these two teams have been two of the most exciting in the MLS this season and are showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Luis Suarez to score anytime (+135)

Luis Suarez has now gone three games without a goal but a player of his quality never stays quiet for long. He may be able to get on the scoresheet in this matchup.

Sporting Kansas City have conceded in six of their seven MLS games this season and they may be vulnerable against the ex-Barcelona striker.

Suarez has five goals in his last five MLS games and is fancied to add to that tally in this game.

The +135 odds for the Uruguayan to get on the scoresheet is more than fair.
