Bet On Portland Timbers' Games
The Portland Timbers are one of the more successful expansion clubs in the MLS, having been inaugurated in the 2011 season. They topped the Western Conference in just their third attempt with an impressive record featuring just five losses from thirty-four starts, and in 2015 went one better by claiming their first MLS Cup.
While they are yet to reach the same heights in the US Open Cup or the CONCACAF Champions League, the Timbers' have impressed with their on-field product.
The success the Timbers have had since their inception is best outlined by their home support - to date Portland has sold out every single home game at Providence Park and has a waitlist of over 10,000 supporters for season tickets, more than any college football team. This is great news for experienced bettors as odds on every Portland Timbers match will be skewed by the heavy fan base and may lead to more favourable odds when betting for or against them. Use this to your advantage and wait for the right moment to back your team at the best price.
One of the lengthiest rivalries in the MLS is between the Timbers and the Seattle Sounders, with both teams clashing since the original North American Soccer League that was established in the 1970s. More recently, the two clubs have joined in a three-sided rivalry with the Vancouver Whitecaps, culminating in an annual mini competition for the Cascadia Cup.
Matches between these sides are often very tough to pick as there is little between the teams. The best example is from the 2016 MLS season where each side won three and lost three at the hands of their antagonists and ended up tied on points (the cup was decided on goal difference with the Whitecaps edging out the Timbers and Sounders by one and two goals respectively).
Unless you have done some solid research and are convinced you can pick a winner, these fixtures may be ones to avoid when placing wagers. The great news is that there are always hundreds of different betting options available every matchday, so if you have done your analysis and chosen your sources wisely, you're likely in for a winning weekend!
