Sounders look to keep the momentum going when they visit Dallas on Wednesday night.Seattle is one of the hottest teams in Major League Soccer this season. Starting off the 2012 campaign with an impressive 6-1-1 record, the Sounders come into this match riding a four game winning streak, having shut out both L.A. and Philadelphia in their last two victories. They have only conceded only three goals so far, making them the best defensive team in the league.
In the three times that these teams have played in Dallas, Seattle has never lost. To add to that, they Sounders have also yet to lose on the road this season, as they've conjured up a win and draw away to the Fire and D.C. United, respectively. A draw bet is currently set at 3.10.
Seattle is looking like a nice bet for the win, presently paying a nice 2.75 at Ladbrokes.com.
Despite having a strong home record of 3-1-2, FC Dallas lost their first home game of the year on Sunday when they were shutout 2-0 against Colorado, extending its winless run to four straight matches.
In that game, leading goalscorer Blas Perez was issued a red card and will miss this Seattle tilt as will regular starter and former team captain Daniel Hernandez, who was also shown the door in the loss to Colorado. Dallas is going to be hard-pressed to beat the surging Sounders, although the home side is still considered a slight favourite with a payout of 2.40.
Along with a Seattle victory, another bet to look at would be the under 2.5 total goals, as Seattle has produced five clean sheets in their eight matches, while, again, only conceding three goals in those games. At the moment the 2.0/2.05 is paying out 1.84.
