Portland Timbers odds: +195 – 32.3%

Draw odds: +270 – 24.0%

Los Angeles odds: +127 – 43.7%

As you can see from the odds in our Portland Timbers vs Los Angeles prediction, even with the home-field advantage at Providence Park behind them, coach Miles Joseph’s boys are deemed underdogs, with a 32.3% win probability at that. Los Angeles are the bookies’ expected winners, as they have a massive 43.7% shot at the three points.

Portland Timbers vs Los Angeles Lineups & Team News

Portland Timbers

The Timbers came extremely close to securing a first win after the Giovanni Savarese era in the game against Seattle Sounders on the 3rd of September. The team was trailing 2-0 but Leo Chu saw the red card and gave the visitors at Lumen Field a can’t-miss opportunity. However, we still fancy the visitors in our Portland Timbers vs Los Angeles prediction, as the Timbers just can’t seem to win these days.

Predicted lineup – Bingham (GK), Miller, Zuparic, McGraw, Mosquera, Evander, Chara, Paredes, Moreno, Mora & Chara

Los Angeles

Not only did Los Angeles get thrashed 1-3 by Lionel Messi and his colleagues last week, but coach Steven Cherundolo’s boys received four yellow cards. Some players are close to suspension, but we believe that our Portland Timbers vs Los Angeles predictions are safe, as long as Cherundolo’s troops stay loyal to how the team plays.

Predicted lineup – McCarthy (GK), Palencia, Long, Chiellini, Hollingshead, Acosta, Ilie, Bogusz, Vela, Gonzalez & Bouanga

Player to Watch: Giorgio Chiellini

At the age of 39, international superstar Giorgio Chiellini is without a doubt one of the most influential players Major League Soccer has ever seen. The World Cup and Euro champion with Italy is a top-notch player despite his age. He managed to stop Lionel Messi from scoring at BMO Stadium last week, and while Inter Miami did eventually win 1-3, it was Giorgio’s unyielding character that saved Cherundolo’s boys from an even more embarrassing loss.
