Competition: MLS

Market: Seattle Sounders win

Odds: 7/5 @ Bet 365

With their sights set on climbing to the top of the Western Conference, Seattle Sounders will make the trip to Colorado in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Starting with the hosts, after spending the entirety of last season battling it out at the foot of the Western Conference, it appears that Colorado are destined for another troublesome campaign. Coming off the back of shipping four away at Orlando last time out, the Rapids are enduring a three-match losing run and are still looking for their first win this season. Once again and rather unsurprisingly holding the worst defensive record in either of the Conferences, Colorado also hold a woeful record against their visitors on Thursday. Anthony Hudson’s side have lost their last seven matches against Seattle and have conceded two or more goals in each of those defeats.

As for the visitors, in stark contrast to Colorado, things couldn’t be going much better for Seattle at the start of the new MLS campaign. Finishing just three points adrift of winning the Western Conference last season, many around CenturyLink Field believe this is their year to pick up a second domestic crown. Once again impressing in their 1-0 win over Salt Lake last time out, the Greens are yet to lose a single matchup this season and they have continued to shine defensively. Conceding just three goals this year, they have also recorded three clean sheets in their last four outings. Given Seattle’s outstanding record against Colorado, coupled with their stellar start to the season, we’re backing an away victory on Thursday.
