Our prediction for this MLS match:
There will be fireworks when Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders face each other at Providence Park on Thursday morning. Portland Timbers produced their best performance of the season at the weekend, with the team rolling over San Jose Earthquakes 6-1, but they need to keep on winning if they are to book their place in the playoffs. Attacking midfielder Valeri, who scored a brace in the crushing of San Jose, will be the man to watch in the home team.
Seattle Sounders, on the other hand, have been scoring goals for fun of late, with the team rolling over both San Jose Earthquakes (7-1) and Los Angeles FC (3-0) in the previous two league fixtures. Given Portland’s attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. In their last meeting in the Major League Soccer Portland Timbers recorded a 2-1 win over Seattle Sounders.
