Kansas City at New York
Recommendation: Over 2.5 (+101)
I think the Red Bull offense is finally starting to click after a slow start to the season. They have scored seven goals in their last two games and Thierry Henry is finally starting to find his form with three goals and two assists in his last two games. Kansas City comes into this game with the MLS’s worst defense (2.40 GAA) and has already allowed four of five opponents to score 2+ goal. Despite Kansas City’s defensive struggles, the offense has been strong and is currently tied for the league lead with a 2.00 GPG. In last year’s meeting, Kansas City really took it to the Red Bulls with a 26-10 shot advantage. This season with Kansas City’s upgraded offense I believe they can punch in a goal or two. The Red Bulls have looked dominant their last two games (4-0 and 3-0 wins) and against a team like Kansas City, who has had a lot of issues on defense, there should be plenty of opportunities for more success.
