Market: Portland Timbers win and over 2.5 goals
Odds: 21/20 @ Bet 365
Looking to shore up their position in the playoffs, Portland Timbers will welcome Western Conference strugglers Colorado to Providence Park on Sunday.
Starting with the hosts, although it might have been a tough month for Portland, The Timbers are still tipped to secure a playoff position in the Western Conference. After 26 MLS games, Portland have won 11, drawn eight and lost seven, scoring 38 and conceding 36 in return, they do hold the third best defensive record in the division. As for their recent form, while they may have only won one of their last six matches, they do hold an impressive record at home. Portland have now scored two or more goals in six of their last seven matches at Providence Park. The hosts have also won their last two meetings against Colorado and have scored five goals in those two wins.
As for the visitors, while Colorado have shown some signs of improvement, The Rapids have all but guaranteed another year out of the playoffs. After 26 games in the Western Conference, they have won just six games, drawing six and losing 14, scoring 31 and conceding 48 in return, they hold the worst attacking stats in the division. Colorado are also 17 points adrift of the playoffs and their hosts on Sunday. As for their recent form, Colorado have now lost their last two matches on the bounce, shipping eight in that time. They have also collected just one away win in the MLS since September 2017.
