Portland Timbers to Win 

Real Salt Lake hasn't been able to beat Portland Timbers since 2020, and we don't think that will change this weekend. Portland Timbers won or drew four of the last five games they played, while Real Salt Lake doesn't have even one win in their latest five fixtures. Also, Portland Timbers is almost qualified for the playoffs and the only thing that they need is to not lose this upcoming game to cement that. 


Four of the last five matches for Portland Timbers and three of the last five games for Real Salt Lake ended with both teams scoring goals. We believe that the upcoming game between them will most likely end that way, too, considering that the last five matches that Real Salt Lake hosted against Portland Timbers also ended with a BTTS outcome.
