Soccer Betting Online Odds:
Coming into this matchup with a 7-6-12 record, it’s clear that Toronto FC is having a hard time measuring up this season. With that in mind, it’s easy to see why they’re pegged as soccer betting online underdogs in this matchup. And while this may be the first time this season these two have crossed paths, most bettors will undoubtedly be taking Portland over Toronto. Toronto’s meager record this season ranks them as the 9th worst team in the Eastern Conference. With a 27-point tally on the season, Toronto is a whopping 27-points behind the conference leading Atlanta United FC. With that in mind, it’s clear the season is all but over for Toronto.
Players to Watch: Sebastian Giovinco (22 GP, 10 G, 5 A), Jonathan Osorio (23 GP, 9 G, 4 A), and Victor Vazquez (16 GP, 6 G, 3 A).
The Timbers tumble into this inter-conference matchup flashing a 10-7-7 record that ranks them 7th overall in the MLS. Considering that the 6th seeded team makes the postseason, there’s no question the Timbers are vying to usurp the LA Galaxy for that decisive spot. Right now Portland is sitting on 37 points on the season, placing them just one point behind the Galaxy. However, since Portland is riding a 4-game losing streak, it’s looking like they could let this opportunity slip through their hands. All things considered, the Timbers cannot afford another loss. Luckily for them they’ll be going up against some low hanging fruit this Thursday night.
Players to Watch: Diego Valeri (24 GP, 9 G, 8 A), Samuel Armenteros (22 GP, 8 G, 1 A), and Sebastian Blanco (22 GP, 6 G, 3 A).
