USA – MLS
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Frisco).
Dallas has been winless in the campaign so far this season after two rounds. The host had a draw in the opening match but went on to lose in their second attempt. The home team finished at the 6th spot in the Western Conference and 11th in the overall league table. They reached Conference Semifinals in the last season campaign and will visit after a 3-1 loss on the road against SJ Earthquakes last time out.
Portland Timbers started the new season on the wrong foot in the league. The opening loss affected their morale in the campaign but the Timbers made a quick comeback in the next game. They will visit on the back of that 2-1 win at home against the likes of Houston Dynamo in the previous encounter. The visitor didn’t pass the first round in playoffs last season after finishing 8th in the overall MLS table.

Dallas vs Portland Timbers Prediction
Dallas will be looking for a comeback in the league and hosting Portland Timbers will probably be their best shot at their maiden win this term regarding their h2h history at this venue with the latter. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the middle and they had a draw at home previously this season. As such, the draw no bet over Dallas will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
Furthermore, the Timbers are not likely to back down without a fight. The visitor has been winless in their last four outings but has scored goals in three of them despite the results. Hence, the tip for BTTS will probably serve the purpose of the goals department in the clash.
