Atlanta United vs Portland Timbers Predictions

The MLS Cup final is here, and only two teams remain in the battle for supremecy in the USA. Atlanta come here looking to win their first MLS Cup title and it would certainly round off what has been a fantastic year for them. They have been explosive going forward, and they have scored goals for fun which has been the big reason they have been so successful this season. They scored 70 goals during the regular season, with Josef Martinez getting 31 of those on his way to winning the golden boot. They have lost just twice at home all season, and they get to host the final in their stadium, which is a massive advantage and a big reason why they are strong favourites, priced up at 8/15 with Betfair.  

The Portland Timbers may have come into the playoffs as the fifth seed, but they come here on a nine game unbeaten run. On top of that, playing away from home shouldn't phase them too much as they won on the road in Columbus to lift the 2015 MLS Cup title. They are also in a rare position here because despite being in the final and deserving that by going on a nine game unbeaten run, the odds are so long on them winning this game that they have nothing to lose. Everyone is expected an Atlanta win here, with people forgetting about Portland completely. The Timbers are as big as 13/2 with BetVictor to win the game.

Atlanta United vs Portland Timbers Betting Tips

A huge game in the MLS on Saturday night/Sunday morning and one to really get the juices flowing for football fans. Portland are capable of causing a shock on there day, but we think there is far too much in Atlanta's favour here to ignore them. They are playing well, they are hosting the game and they have an attacking line that is probably the best in the league. We have to side with Atlanta but to add a bit of extra value to the bet we are also backing both teams to score as we feel Portland may be able to steal a goal while Atlanta are focusing on attacking. We are backing an Atlanta win and BTTS, which is priced up at 11/5 with Betfair

We think we are going to see plenty of goals here, and that is also the focus for out next bet. With the top scorers on show here, and a team who can play without fear with nothing to lose, we are also backing over 2.5 goals in this one, which is priced up at 8/11 with Betfair

Atlanta - 8/15 with Betfair
