Having won their first ever MLS Cup win last season, Seattle Sounders are now in danger of missing out on the end-of-season play-off. Their poor start to the campaign is not as critical as it might have been; indeed, they are just three points off the knockout round after 12 matches. The MLS system allows the top six sides from each Conference to enter the play-offs, with the two two from each getting a semi-final berth. Therefore, three points against Portland Timbers would see them just two points behind and revitalize their hopes of a top two finish.
Timbers themselves are in fifth and will be desperate to finish around there given that they missed out on a top six place in 2016 by just two points. A lack of goals was identified as their Achilles heel last season, and they have responded by being the Western league’s top scorers to this point, level with Houston Dynamo. If it was not for a defence that has allowed 20 goals, they would very much be closer in challenging for the top two places.
Their form has been patchy, however, with four matches winless and conceding 10 times. Seattle were on a similarly poor run, though they managed to get three points against Real Salt Lake last weekend with a 1-0 win.
The odds show that the home side are major favourites for Saturday night’s match at the CenturyLink Field. With 84 markets for the match, the outright bets have the Sounders at 1.80 for a win, while customers that think they will not be beaten may be interested in a Double Chance bet (1.22). Portland are desperately attempting to avoid another loss and can be backed at 4.05 to win, while a draw is 3.60.
Despite being MLS Cup holders, Seattle Sounders are ninth favourites – with odds of 15.5 – to retain the trophy with Tipbet. Toronto FC, who are currently top of the overall table with 26 points, are rated as favourites at 7.50, closely followed by FC Dallas (8.75). All MLS odds throughout the season are available here.
