Market: Portland Timbers win

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has become a real purple patch, Portland Timbers will welcome Inter Miami to Providence Park late on Sunday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Portland might have endured a tricky run during August, the Timbers have bounced back in some style. Knowing that they’re still sat in pole position to secure another play-off finish this season, the Greens are enjoying what has become a stellar purple patch. Last seen earlier in the week landing a deserved 2-1 victory against Los Angeles on the road, a performance that saw them gain a host of plaudits. Smelling a golden chance when they return to Providence Park on Sunday night, Head Coach Giovanni Savarese finds his side riding a real wave. Including what turned into a thumping 6-1 romp against Real Salt Lake on home soil last weekend, the Oregon-based outfit are enjoying a hugely impressive seven-match unbeaten run, a run that has seen them record six wins and just a single stalemate.

As for the visitors, although Inter Miami might have found themselves enjoying their own purple patch last month, they have come crashing back down to earth. Still chasing a real uphill battle if they’re to secure a play-off spot this season, Head Coach Phil Neville is calling on his side to find a much-needed boost. Last seen earlier in the week putting in another worrying display, the former Manchester United defender saw his side get hit with a 1-0 loss away at Atlanta. In fact, on a run that also included dreadful 5-1 and 4-0 defeats against Nashville and New York RB, Inter Miami have lost their last three MLS contests on the spin. Knowing that face a stern test when they travel to a high-flying Portland late on Sunday night, we’re backing a home victory here.
