  • D.C.’s loss to LAFC in the midweek was their ninth in their last 13 MLS matches (W2 D2). The Black-and-Red have just 16 points from their last 23 games, four fewer than any other MLS team since that run began in mid-March.
  • The Union suffered just their fourth loss of the season on Wednesday, a 2-1 defeat at FC Dallas. Two of Philadelphia’s four defeats have come in their last two away matches.

  • Minnesota’s 2-1 victory over Nashville SC in Week 25 was their sixth win in their last nine MLS matches (D2 L1). The Loons have scored at least twice in eight of those nine matches after scoring more than one goal in just three of their first 16 games in 2022. 
  • Austin FC comeback from a 3-1 deficit to beat Sporting Kansas City, 4-3, in Week 25. It was the third time Austin have won a match in which they’ve trailed by two goals this season (also vs. D.C. in April and Colorado in July), becoming the first team to win three matches when trailing by multiple goals in a single MLS season.

  • LAFC win (30 points)

Predict the action: Time of first goal? (25 points)

  • San Jose’s 4-1 loss at Dallas marked the ninth time they have allowed at least three goals in a match this season, tied for most in MLS (Vancouver). 
  • LAFC have extended their winning streak to seven, a club record, after their win over D.C. on Tuesday. Since the breakaway shootout was abolished in 2000, there has been just one longer winning streak in MLS: Seattle – 9 straight in July-September 2018.

  • Match odds by BetMGM: San Jose Earthquakes +260, Draw +300, LAFC -115

  • Columbus Crew win (30 points)
  • Draw (40 points)
  • Atlanta United (40 points)

Predict the action: Full time score? (30 points for both teams, 10 points for one team)

  • Columbus have won six of their last seven MLS meetings against Atlanta United (L1) dating back to 2019, including a 2-1 victory on May 28. Only LAFC (7 vs. Real Salt Lake) and New England (7 vs. D.C. United) have won more regular season games against a single opponent since the start of the 2019 season. 
  • The Crew’s 3-2 win over NYCFC on August 6 was just the third win in their last 10 home matches (D3 L4). 
  • Atlanta United are winless in 10 straight away matches (D4 L6). Atlanta’s run is the longest active road winless run in MLS and the second longest in club history (14 straight from October 2020 to August 2021). However, they have drawn two straight and three of their last four on the road. 
  • All-time matchups: Series tied 7W - 6L - 0D
  • Match odds by BetMGM: Columbus Crew -120, Draw +270, Atlanta United +290

Sunday, August 21 at 7:30 pm ET - Watch on: FS1, FOX Deportes


  • Sporting Kansas City win (30 points)
  • Draw (40 points)
  • Portland Timbers win (30 points)

Predict the action: First player to score? (25 points)

  • The Portland Timbers are unbeaten in their last seven matches against Sporting Kansas City (W4 D3, including playoffs). The Timbers beat Sporting, 7-2, on May 14, the most goals Portland have scored in a match in their MLS history. 
  • Sporting Kansas City's 4-3 loss to Austin on Saturday was their league-high 15th loss of the season. Sporting have lost more games under Peter Vermes only once, losing 16 times in the 2019 season. 
  • The Timbers saw their 10-match unbeaten streak come to an end with a loss at Toronto FC in Week 25. That said, Portland's last three results during their unbeaten run were draws, meaning they are winless in four straight matches. 
  • All-time match-ups: Portland Timbers lead 9W - 7L - 7D
  • Match odds by BetMGM: Sporting Kansas City FC +105, Draw +260, Portland Timbers +230
