Seattle came back from a 2-1 deficit to win a 3-2 thriller at home back in front of 53,000 four weeks ago. That game saw plenty of attacking action and with only two points separating them in the standings I expect the same pace tonight when they kickoff at 11pm EST.
Since that loss, Vancouver are unbeaten in their last four games, of which they won three. They are also one of only two remaining teams that are unbeaten at home this season (FC Dallas the other) with a 5-0-3 record to show for it. They played to a mid-week draw away to Kansas City which means they've now scored in eight conecutive matches.
A Vancouver victory tonight is slated at 2.62 over at William Hill. The Vancouver to win at half and fulltime is sitting at 4.33 while the draw/Vancouver pick is at 6.00.
The draw result is listed at 3.25 with the draw/draw presently at 4.75.
Seattle also played mid-week when they defeated the disaster that is D.C. United by a 2-0 score at home. But their 3-4-1 record on the road doesn't exude much confidence nor does their .875 goals per game average while away. The away win is at 2.70.
The over 2.5 is at 2.05 and I like that given their long standing intense rivalry along with the fact that the over has hit in 67% of their all-time MLS meetings. Vancouver home games have also seen an average of 3.6 goals which bodes well for that pick.
