This betting tip comes from MLS in the early hours of Sunday morning. Portland host LA Galaxy in a high profile clash at Jeld-Wen Field. The Timbers have been solid at home, but Galaxy have recorded back to back wins to reignite their campaign, so which way will this go?
Match: Portland v LA Galaxy
Betting tip: Portland Win
Best Odds: 2.5 with Bet365
Kick off: 04:00 14/07/2013
The Timbers have been very strong at home, and the odds on another success on their own patch look tempting. A fifteen game unbeaten streak came to an end last time out, but back at Jeld-Wen Field, Portland will look to build on their five wins so far from eight played. The form has been built on a solid defence, and they have let in just five goals at home. Compare that to a Galaxy side who travel badly. They have shipped nineteen goals in their ten road games, losing six of them. Four of their last five away have ended in defeat so the odds on a home victory look too big. The visitors are fine in their own back yard, and these two drew 0-0 there as recently as June – but the Timbers have home advantage this time, and should be nearer 5/4 (2.25) than their current price. Snap it up.
