Portland @ 1.90

"The Portland Timbers are eager to bounce back from last week's shellacking at the hands of Toronto FC, and they caught a bit of a break on Tuesday night. The New York Red Bulls won their US Open Cup semifinal 3-2 at FC Cincinnati, but had to go to extra time to do it, with seven of New York's regular starters going the full 120 minutes in Ohio. They'll undoubtedly rest most -- if not all -- of those starters on Friday night, especially with a cross-country flight looming ahead of the match."

Portland Timbers -0.5

This is likely to be a bad spot for the NYRB. While they are likely to be a high after beating Cincinnati but one has to wonder how emotionally spent they could be. It was a great win as they had to come back from two goals down. Most of the starters played heavy minutes. This game will be played on turf again (same as the one against Cincinnati) which is not going to help their cause too. Portland Timbers will be keen to get back to winning ways quickly as they are in a really tight Western Conference. They are likely to be without starting gk Jake Gleeson, defender Liam Ridgewell and second leading scorer Fernando Adi but if they can take advantage of a NYRB side who is likely to be tired physically and mentally, they should be able to get another win at home.
