Competition: MLS

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 7/10 @ BetUS

In what could prove to be an enjoyable MLS showdown in the early hours of Sunday, Seattle will welcome New England to Lumen Field.

Starting with the hosts, while Seattle might have opened up the 2024 campaign in the midst of a real struggle, the Sounders have come roaring back in some style. Last seen putting in another eye-catching performance as they secured a 2-1 victory against Chicago, Brian Schmetzer’s men have collected 10 points from their previous four MLS appearances. Skyrocketing their way into the play-off places, Brian Schmetzer’s side have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous nine consecutive appearances across all competitions. Extending on their US Open Cup adventure on May 23rd as they clinched a 2-1 win at home against Phoenix Rising, Seattle will also be excited by their continued success on home soil. Including an action-packed 3-2 victory against Dallas last month, the Greens have won their previous three showdowns at Lumen Field by an aggregate score of 7-3. However, it should be noted, Schmetzer’s men have seen eight of their last nine matchups finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, making an immediate return to winning ways earlier in the week as they secured a 2-1 victory at home against Atlanta, New England are enjoying their own recent flurry. Despite signing off June with a woeful 5-1 drumming against Columbus, the Revs have still collected 15 points from their previous six MLS appearances. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just two points adrift of finding a route into the play-off places, Caleb Porter’s men will be desperate to spring an upset here. However, despite securing an action-packed 3-2 victory against Vancouver on June 16th, the former Columbus boss will be calling on his squad to find some recent stability. In fact, New England have registered just a single clean sheet from any of their last nine straight MLS outings – a run that stems back to May 5th. Likewise, with the Revs seeing their all of their last three away fixtures finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome this weekend.
