Competition: US Open Cup

Market: Seattle Sounders draw no bet

Odds: 7/10 @ BetUS

Looking to punch their US Open Cup semi-final spot in the early hours of Wednesday, Seattle will travel to USL outfit Sacramento.

Starting with the hosts, while Sacramento might still find themselves battling it out at the top of the Western Conference standings, the second-tier outfit are seeking some recent stability. Making an immediate return to losing ways last week as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat at home against the Las Vegas Lights, the Republic have recorded just a single victory from any of their previous four USL appearances. Likewise, mustering just a pair of wins within 90 minutes from any of their last nine consecutive matchups across all competitions, Mark Briggs should also have a headache over his side’s recent struggles in the final third. Including a downbeat 0-0 stalemate against Tulsa on June 23rd, Sacramento have recorded just a single goal in over 270 minutes of action. Facing what looks set to be a major challenge in the early hours of Wednesday, it should also be noted that Briggs’ side have lost three of their previous four showdowns at Heart Health Park.

As for the visitors, making another statement last weekend as they secured an eye-catching 2-0 win against New England, Seattle have continued on a real purple patch. Signing off June with a 2-1 win against Chicago at Lumen Field, Brian Schmetzer’s men have collected 13 points from their previous five MLS appearances. Likewise, along with winning their last three consecutive outings against top-flight opposition by an aggregate score of 7-3, the Sounders will certainly be smelling the chance to book their US Open Cup semi-final spot here. Continuing to shine with their clinical performances in the final third, Seattle have suffered just a single defeat from any of their last 10 matchups across all competitions. Cruising their way to another play-off ticket this season, the Greens are enjoying their most fruitful spell since opening up the 2024 campaign. With their extended flurry underlined by a 2-0 victory against Minnesota last month, we are backing an away draw no bet here.

Bet: Seattle Sounders draw no bet against Sacramento Republic 7/10 for Wednesday’s US Open Cup tie @ BetUS
