Market: Real Salt Lake win
Odds: 2/1 @ Bet 365
Looking to shore up their position in the playoffs, Real Salt Lake will look to carry on their impressive form when they travel to the Avaya Stadium on Sunday to face a struggling San Jose side.
Starting with the hosts, although The Earthquakes managed to secure a playoff position last year, it has been a horrid start to the new campaign for San Jose. After 20 MLS games this season, the hosts have managed to pick up just two wins, six draws and 12 defeats, scoring 29 and conceding 40, they now hold the second worst defensive record in the Western Conference. With a points tally of just 12, they’re now 18 points adrift of the playoff spots. As for their recent form, San Jose have now failed to win any of their last 13 matches in all competitions, losing eight and drawing five.
As for the visitors, although they may have missed out on the Top Six last year, it has been a successful start for Salt Lake and they have now played their way into the playoff positions. After 21 games in the Western Conference, Salt Lake have won nine, drawn three and lost nine, scoring 31 and conceding 39 in return. With a points tally of 30, the visitors currently sit sixth in the table and a win could see them leapfrog Portland and LA Galaxy. As for their recent form, Real have now lost just one of their last five in all competitions and have managed to find the net two or more times in four of those five.
