Portland Timbers are having a solid season in the Western conference and are in 4th place on 34 points. They come into this game unbeaten in 5 matches and if results go their way could finish the weekend in 3rd place.

They have played just 9 games at home considering most of the other clubs have played 11, but the main statistic is that they are still unbeaten with six wins and 3 draws. They have become a very hard team to beat at home.

Away from home they have lost 60% of their games but their form is vastly improving having won their last 2 games and they are also scoring goals.

Portland Timbers vs Philadelphia Union: Prediction

We are backing goals in this game, because both teams are full of them at the moment. Both will play an attacking style of play which will be very entertaining to watch.

Our main bet will be to see both teams to score but we think we have a chance to see at least 4 goals and will back over 3.5 which will be good value.

We can expect this game to be free flowing as Portland Timbers try to stay undefeated at home.
