New York City FC vs Seattle Sounders Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Last Updated

New York City can continue their recent run of fine form with a victory against Seattle Sounders on Wednesday night.

Domenec Torrent's team are unbeaten in their last 13 matches, winning each of their last four. As such, Wednesday's hosts will come into this contest brimming with belief.

Brian Schmetzer's men ended a five-match streak without a win with a dramatic last-gasp goal to beat Vancouver Whitecaps at the weekend. However, Seattle have won just one of their last 11 competitive matches away from home.

As such, New York come into this clash as 13/20 (1.65) favourites with William Hill. The odds compilers offer 4/1 (5.0) that Seattle spring a surprise at Yankee Stadium and the same firm go 14/5 (3.80) that Wednesday's tussle ends all square.

Team news

Valentin Castellanos will be hopeful of retaining a starting spot after scoring twice against Philadelphia Union at the weekend. Heber and Tony Rocha are both out with a hamstring injury, but James Sands could be fit enough to feature for the hosts.

Raul Ruidiaz is absent for the visitors, for he remains on international duty with Peru at Copa America. Justin Dhillon made his Seattle debut against Vancouver at the weekend and the 24-year-old striker may start in attack once again here.

Preview

Despite their recent fine form, New York have conceded in five of their last six matches. Seattle have scored in all but one of their last 14 matches, despite winning just five of those.

William Hill offer 8/11 (1.73) that there are goals scored at both ends when these sides lock horns. The same firm also go 8/11 (1.73) that there are at least three goals scored on Wednesday.

Predictions

New York have been in scintillating form in attack, having scored a remarkable 15 goals in their last four fixtures. The hosts may well continue their scoring streak against a Seattle side that has managed just three clean sheets in 13 matches.

Furthermore, Schmetzer's side have shipped at least two goals in each of their four league defeats thus far this term. The visitors, though, have failed to find the net in just two of their 17 MLS matches this season.

There is plenty of potential, then, for a high-scoring contest at Yankee Stadium. William Hill offer 23/20 (2.15) that there are at least three goals scored - with both teams on target - on Wednesday night.
