Atlanta United v Portland Timbers Predictions

Atlanta have been in great shape at home ground and hosting the MLS Cup Final will mean a great deal as convincing displays here were enough to make it there, with a 3-1 aggregate win over New York Red Bulls now behind them.

Five Stripes now hope to make it count once again and earn their seventh home win in a row since mid-August, after beating Columbus (3-1), Real Salt Lake (2-0), New England (2-1), Chicago Fire (2-1), New York City (3-1), and most recently New York RB (3-0) in quite convincing displays in the final third before anything else. 

Portland Timbers do come into the match on the back of a great 2-3 win over Sporting KC, where Diego Valeri stood out and netted a 99’ winner, showing they can play on the road and now surely garnering high hopes for an upset at Mercedes-Benz Stadium too.

Timbers have thus earned their fourth win in five outings and although their path to the Final was a lot tougher, it does feel they come into the contest on a high too. They’ve been regularly scoring numbers of goals as well and we expect Giovanni Savarese motivated to have his men show off once again on Saturday.

Atlanta United v Portland Timbers Betting Tips

We do believe Atlanta have what it takes to bag the silverware and many rate backing them a banker bet but we don’t feel it will come easy. Timbers come into the match in fine goalscoring form too and with that in mind, we’re now going for Atlanta to win & a Yes on Both teams to score at 9/4 with Paddy Power.

We thus expect another high-scoring clash for both sides despite high stakes involved and we’ll also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with Betfair. We’ve seen such occasions in five of the Five Stripes’ last six outings at this ground and this does feel like further evidence for such a bet.
