This time the Timbers will be hosting, which may be good for them because on home ground they have four wins and two draws in the last six home games, while the Sounders lost two of the last five games they played away from home. The oddsmakers seem to be sure that the Sounders’ form is unbeatable and the match on Sunday will result in a loss for the Timbers.
Over 2.5 Goals
In the three games played this season, two of them ended with over 2.5 goals for both clubs, which means that there is a high chance on Sunday there will be a lot of goals. Besides that, the Sounders tend to score first, but you may not be able to find that market on many bookmaker platforms.
Raul Ruidiaz to Score
Raul Ruidiaz is the current second-best scorer in the MLS and he scored four goals in the last three matches played. He will likely score in the match against the Timbers, too.
