Portland Timbers vs Chicago Fire Match Preview
Portland Timbers have bounced back to the winning ways in front of the home fans once again and they now host Chicago Fire for their mid-week clash with a chance to make it two in a row, after beating Vancouver Whitecaps (3-1) with goals from Blanco, Loria, and Ebobisse.
Timbers have thus ended a streak of two losses after being beaten by Minnesota United both in MLS (1-0) and US Open Cup (2-1) since early August. They have been in much better shape at Providence Park and have a seven-match unbeaten streak – with five wins and two draws – to build on as they keep scoring numbers of goals.
Chicago Fire have beaten Houston Dynamo (0-1) and Montreal Impact (3-2) in two August outings so far and we’ve thus finally seen them end a six-match winless streak across competitions. However, the attacking line recently led by Nemanja Nikolic hardly feels very confident and their struggles for goalscoring consistency have been obvious.
Men in Red have netted just one goal in three away games in over a month and this will feel worrying ahead of the trip to Oregon. They have picked it up but it’s fair to say Veljko Paunovic and his men have a lot to prove, which we don’t see them doing on the day.
We will thus rather back Portland Timbers to secure the points and going for a Home win feels like good value at 8/11 with Unibet, bearing in mind their great streak at this ground going on through most part of the campaign.
We do expect a tough challenge from the visitors, who will hope to rediscover their form on the back of recent success. However, they haven’t really been scoring goals on the road and we’re hoping for a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 7/5 with Unibet.. Read more at footballtips.com

Both Portland Timbers and Chicago Fire picked up three points at the weekend and head into Thursday’s encounter in decent form, and judging by their head to head record over the last few seasons, we are expecting a very tight match with little, if anything, separating the pair at the final whistle..

Pick : 2-1
Veljko Paunovic’s troops regained a much-needed confidence, but seeing that they recorded only one win in previous 24 away games in the Major League Soccer, we are tempted to put our money on Portland Timbers. It has to be noted that Chicago Fire have never won a game against Portland Timbers in the MLS.. Read more at footballpredictions.com
But the safest bet, which I like a lot, is to go with Portland with AH -0.5 / -1. This means that if Portland wins by 1 at the end of the game, we win half of our investment; if Portland wins by 2 or more, we win all; if Portland draws or loses, we lose). . Read more at betshoot.com

Portland are just a win away from a playoff spot. With Chicago having one away win with three draws and eight losses I believe Portland will emerge victorious. . Read more at nowgoal.com

Going against the heavily favoured view, Frog is making a case for getting with the "No" in the Both Teams To Score market. Given the odds-against prices available, that is the pick. However, it is important to state that this does not look like hugely compelling value. Given the quality of the pricing for this one, Frog is picking it with a reduced level of confidence... If you do like the verdict however, you can get involved with Bet Victor who are offering 2.55 on the No side of BTTS.. Read more at frogthegambler.com
