Market: Inter Miami win

Odds: 6/5 @ Pribet

Looking to extend on their recent remarkable purple patch, Inter Miami will welcome Sporting Kansas City to the DRV PNK Stadium in the early hours of Sunday.

Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in another stellar display as they cruised their way to a 3-1 romp away at Los Angeles, Inter Miami find themselves in the midst of a history-making flurry. While the Herons might still be facing an uphill battle in their bid to claim a play-off ticket in 2023, Gerardo Martino’s men are riding a famous wave of momentum. In fact, along with edging past Cincinnati last month as they punched their spot in the final of this season’s US Open Cup, the one-time Barcelona boss has not seen his side suffer a single defeat from any of their previous 11 appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to July 16th. Likewise, dropping points on just on occasion during their 11-match unbeaten run, Inter Miami will certainly be calling on their new attacking icon to spearhead their charge here. Enjoying what has been a remarkable start to life in the United States, seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi has already notched 11 strikes since arriving at the DRV PNK Stadium.

As for the visitors, while Sporting KC might have seen their Leagues Cup adventure come to an abrupt end earlier in the month as they suffered a 4-1 drumming at the hands of Toluca, Kansas haven’t shown any signs of a hangover since returning to MLS duties. Last seen putting in an eye-catching display as they landed a 2-1 win at home against St. Louis City, the Wizards open this weekend’s fixtures sat just two points adrift of breaking into the play-off places. However, despite landing back-to-back MLS wins for the first time since the start of June, they certainly face a stern challenge here. Likewise, crashing out of the US Open Cup away at Cincinnati on July 27th, Peter Vermes will have a headache over his side’s extended struggles away from Children’s Mercy Park. In fact, Sporting KC have managed to muster just a single victory from any of their last 10 straight contests on the road – a run that stems all the way back to May 7th. Facing a stern test against a high-flying Miami here, a home victory can be found at appealing odds.
