Portland Timbers play LA Galaxy in the MLS tonight (UK time) and our football tipster has picked out some bets in this betting preview.
We don’t normally cover the MLS here at Thatsagoal but this is the start of regular MLS betting tips starting with Portland Timbers vs LA Galaxy tonight. Both of these teams are going really well in the league but the form of LA Galaxy is perfect in their last five fixtures and beat tonight’s opponents just a month ago in the US Open Cup.
Portland Timbers have only won one of their last five matches and looked like they were starting to falter but a 3-1 win over Seattle Sounders last time out may have regained their confident going into tonight’s match.
Watch: Portland Timbers beat Seattle Sounders 3-1 last time out:
When looking at the odds for the match I am struggling to get away from the price for an LA Galaxy win tonight. They’re on the road but odds of 5/2 (bet365) to win are simply too good to turn down. They’ve won their last five matches without conceding a goal and are unbeaten in seven.

There haven’t been many goals in recent Portland matches, just seven in their last five matches and as already mentioned, LA Galaxy haven’t conceded in their last five. This means we could be in for another low scoring match tonight and this means a bet on under 2.5 goals makes sense. Surprisingly the odds for this are generous and I advise snapping up the Evens from Coral for two or fewer goals to be scored.

For my final Portland Timbers vs LA Galaxy prediction tonight I couldn’t decide between a first goalscorer bet and correct score bet. I have fallen on the side of a correct score prediction and I am betting on LA Galaxy to repeat the feat of their recent US Open Cup victory and win the match 1-0. The odds for LA Galaxy to beat Portland Timbers 1-0 tonight are 10/1 with Ladbrokes.
