MLS Soccer Betting at BetDSI - Kansas City vs Philadelphia
Friday, October 17th, 2014By Ej Garr
MLS Odds:Philadelphia is winless in their last 5 matches, and it led them to elimination from any playoff contention. They are now sitting 7 points back of 5th place with two to go in the regular season.
Kansas City however, came in to September on a 2-match losing streak which stretched to 4, but has since reeled off a nice run in both the MLS and CONCACAF Champions League. Playing well at the right time couldn't be more important. As most of us know, it isn't how you start, it's how you finish, and KC is finishing what they started.
They have also relied on a solid defense that is second in the Eastern Conference in GA. It will continue to be the reason why they will be a tough out in the post-season.

Quick Analysis & Prediction
Philly fell apart weeks ago, as we predicted they would if you have been following the posts here. Kansas City has the defense and plenty of options upfront with Dom Dwyer, Graham Zusi, and the emergence of Lawrence Olum. Not to mention they have a good slew of players who saw International duty this past week, so there is plenty of experience on this team who know what is at stake and how to get it done.
To me, seeing Kansas City on that Pk at -105 with a Draw-no-Bet situation seems almost too good to be true. Philly is, and has been, playing less than stellar soccer as of late, so for me KC and the Pk is the play.
