Competition: MLS

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 7/10 @ 1xBet

In what could prove to be an action-packed MLS showdown in the early hours of Thursday, Seattle will welcome Real Salt Lake to Lumen Field.

Starting with the hosts, although Seattle might have opened up the 2024 campaign by collecting just a single victory from any of their first nine MLS appearances, Brian Schmetzer’s men do appear to have turned a recent corner. Last seen putting in an impressive performance away at St. Louis as they snatched a 2-1 victory, the Sounders have now lost just one of their previous eight domestic appearances across all competitions – a run that stems back to a 2-1 loss at the hands of DC United on April 28th. Extending on their US Open Cup adventure earlier in the month as they clinched a 2-1 win against USL outfit Phoenix Rising, Schmetzer’s side have also found a route into the play-off places. Although the Greens might be enjoying their brightest run of the 2024 campaign, they are seeking some defensive resolve. It should be highlighted, Seattle have recorded just a sole MLS clean sheet over the past six weeks.

As for the visitors, mounting a stunning second-half comeback away at Dallas last weekend as they eventually snatched a pulsating 3-3 stalemate, Real Salt Lake have enjoyed a real MLS fairytale this season. Currently leading the chase at the top of the Western Conference standings and holding a four-point buffer over the chasing pack, Pablo Mastroeni’s men have continued to receive plenty of plaudits. Despite watching their US Open Cup adventure come to an end earlier in the month as they suffered a 4-2 loss against USL outfit New Mexico, RSL have not suffered a single loss from any of their previous 11 top-flight appearances. Despite failing to record a clean sheet in any of their last five matchups across all competitions, Real Salt Lake have enjoyed quite the free-scoring run. Including an action-packed 5-3 victory against Colorado on May 19th, Thursday’s guests have notched 12 goals in just their previous four MLS showdowns. In what should be another lively affair, we are backing both teams to get on the scoresheet.

Bet: Both teams to score at Seattle Sounders vs Real Salt Lake 7/10 for Thursday’s MLS battle @ 1xBet
