Welcome back to CaptainGambling.com! We know why you’re here - you want to find the latest MLS betting tips, right? Well, fortunately for you, you’re in the correct spot. The 2021 MLS season is well and truly underway, and each conference is starting to take shape. Will someone dethrone Columbus Crew as champions? Will it be Seattle Sounders?
The penultimate game of this weekend’s upcoming fixtures sees current Western Conference leaders Seattle Sounders travel to Portland. The Timbers will be looking to kick-start their season, following an average start to their 2021 MLS campaign. Our soccer heads are here to bring you the latest betting tips for Sunday’s match.
Admittedly, it’s been a bit of an underwhelming start for last season’s playoff team. A disappointing 1-0 loss in their opener against Vancouver wasn’t the start Portland had hoped for, but a 2-1 home win in the following game against Houston Dynamo seemed to settle the Timbers. However, after being knocked out by FC Dallas in the playoffs last year, Portland were unable to seek the revenge they wanted, getting beat convincingly by Dallas 4-1. Portland will want to turn their campaign around very quickly, and will need a result on Sunday to do so.
Before the season, it was announced that the opening weekend would see a replay of the 2020 Western Conference final, as Seattle hosted Minnesota United. The Sounders were comfortable in their opening fixture, sending a sign to the rest of the league as they came out 4-0 winners. Despite a 1-1 draw with LAFC in their first away game of the season, Seattle showed their dominance once again, beating LA Galaxy 3-0 at home in their recent game. Seattle will be looking to continue this run of impressive form, and are currently leading the conference.
Despite the two team’s different starts to the season, the previous head to head results are fairly equal. Both sides have won two of the last five, and the other resulted in a draw. The home side will definitely want to use this to their advantage, and remind Seattle that it isn’t going to be easy as the visitors hope. However, with that said, Seattle have been very impressive at the beginning of this season, and will definitely feel like they are favourites heading into Sunday’s match.
Below, you’ll be able to find all of the statistics and information to help you with your MLS betting. Our soccer experts have collected all the details around the last five head to head results, as well as their current league form.
