NWSL picks for Racing Louisville vs. Chicago Red Stars
Before you tune in to Sunday's match, you need to see the NWSL picks from betting expert Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for more than five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
Sutton finished 2022 as SportsLine's top soccer expert with a 165-130-2 mark, returning nearly $2,200 for $100 players. He also excelled in Serie A with a 63-39-1 mark, returning nearly $1,600.
For Chicago Red Stars vs. Racing Louisville, Sutton is picking the match to end in a 1-1 draw. The expert notes that Chicago have managed at least one goal in all of their home games this season, while Louisville has just one win on the road. However, the Red Stars have also been clean-sheeted in three of their last five matches across all competition, so Wednesday's game likely won't be a high-scoring one.
Sutton also points out that Louisville have settled for plenty of draws so far this season, so that result is very likely.
"Racing Louisville has four draws in NWSL play this season, tied for the most in the league, and they'll be happy with a point on the road against the Red Stars," Sutton told SportsLine. Stream the game here.
