Philadelphia Union vs Portland Timbers: Predictions and Betting Tips
Philadelphia Union was founded in 2008 but has thus far failed to win any MLS titles. This year the team has a chance.
Philadelphia is currently third in the Eastern Conference and is playing well, having scored six goals in seven games. They find themselves in the top half of the standings.
Portland Timbers was founded in 2009, and won its single MLS title back in 2015. This season they are not among the favourites to win the title, but they are still a team to be reckoned with.
Portland is currently placed sixth in the Western Conference, having won three games and lost three. In their six games they have scored nine goals and conceded eight.
- Three wins, one draw and one defeat for Philadelphia in their last five games
- Philadelphia’s last five games have all ended with under 2.5 total match goals
- Three wins and two defeats for Portland in their last five games
- Four of the last five of Portland’s games have ended with over 2.5 total match goals
Philadelphia Union vs Portland Timbers Predictions
Both teams are gradually improving but have been lacking consistency. Given these similarities, the home-field advantage could be a decisive factor and Philadelphia might take all three points.
We don’t expect a high-scoring game as both have a fairly low goal average – Philadelphia are averaging fewer than one goal per game and Portland averaging just over a goal per game.
