For anybody who's interested below are my end ratings from last season;

My pick for this round: Toronto FC - Chicago Fire Toronto are the last season's champions but they are doing badly this season. Mostly because they have been focusing on the North American versio

Also placed a bet on New England Revolution to score at New York RB - they seem to create a lot of of chances and NY RB are reportedly trying to switch their system of play and are leaving more counter-attack options for their opponents. NE Revolution are tired from the mid-week trip to Minnesota but three key players were suspended for that game, so they are well rested.

Excellent analysis on Toronto FC @cluelessG! And the NE Revolution to score was very good considering how they have been producing, but the fact is that at home New York Red Bulls are one of the best defenses with only 6 goals allowed in 10 matches.

LA Galaxy vs Orlando City
2018, July 30, 03:30 (CET Time)
MLS

LA Galaxy
After drawing 2-2 last Thursday against Los Angeles FC by 2-2 the team returngs to the Stubhub Center, where they have an streak of four matches unbeaten, with three victories in that span, all of them by 2 goals different at the least.

The absence of Alessandrini, who has scored or assited in each of this last four matches, could be key for this match if Los Angeles Galaxy did not have offensive players to take his place as Chris Pontius, or Giovani Dos Santos. The squad of LA Galaxy has the size to cover many absences. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored or assisted in each of his last six matches, with seven goals and two assists in that strech.

With a total streak of six matches without defeat, LA Galaxy is improving their position in the Western Conference and now is part of the top five teams there.

The team has shown patience, and knows how to put pressure in the last minutes of the match, the team leads the MLS with 22 goals in the 60th to 90th minute of matches.

The team has four defeats at home, but keep in mind he has encounter Sporting KC, Atlanta United, NY Red Bull and FC Dallas. Besides those, five victories and 1 draw, therefore the teams has clearly dominated teams from beyond the top four.

Orlando City
With only 2 victories in 8 matches in away, the team is just doing a very bad season. Near the bottom of the league than playoffs position. With an streak of four consecutive defeats, taking in consideration Open Cup, as they draw against DC United. But in MLS the team is winless on the road in seven matches, in five of the lost by at least three goals difference.

The team should look to improve in defense urgently. and meanwhile they showed some improvement in Open Cup losing 1-0 to Philadelphia Union, and won 2-1 to Toront FC, they have yet to replicate this at away.

The suspended O'Neill was one of those attempts to improve in defense, yet he was expelled last match and will have to miss this game. I expect the experiments to continue in the back, and is yet to see if they have what it takes to improve there.

Prediction
Orlando City have to focus on defense if they want to avoid another defeat, the problem for them is that the team infornt is one of the best Attacks of the league. Weanwhile Orlando City is the worst defense overall, and at away also the worst defending. Los Angeles Galaxy should dominate the actions and the scoring chances.

Los Angeles Galaxy should return to victory after the draw against Los Angeles FC. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has find his place in the team, and the arrival of the Dos Santos brothers have been beneficial for the recent positive streak of the team. Therefore the should get the victory. A very probable high scoring match, still Orlando could surprise and allow few goals, meanwhile they barely score at away.

Portland Timbers vs Seattle Sounders
2018, August 27, 03:30 hrs (CET TIME)
MLS

Portland Timbers
With three consecutive defeats, the team has fallen in the standings of the Western Conference and is on the last spot of playoffs, tie in points with Vancouver Whitecaps and tonights rival Seattle Sounders just two points behind.

 It does not look as the best moment to encounter this important match against Seattle Sounders, match that counts for Cascadia Cup (Cup disputed between Vancouver Whitecaps, Seattle Sounders  and Portland Timbers).   Fortunately for them, this match will be played at home, where they have only one defeat in 11 matches, one of the strongest home records, and a win against Sounders FC on Sunday would mark the first MLS regular-season sweep for the Timbers against their Cascadia-rival since 2011.

In last five matches at home, the team has three victories, two draws and only one defeat, last home match against Cascadia-rival Vancouver Whitecaps, therefore is vital for them to get a positive result, as right now all of them are tied in the Cascadia Cup standings.

Seattle Sounders
Nine-game unbeaten run, the last six-game winning streak. With an astonishing 5-0 win against Los Angeles Galaxy at CenturyLink Field Stadium, the team had goals from four different players, with the last one from Raul Ruidiaz, who has scored 2 goals in six matches, slowly but steady taking a place in the team.

 With scorer leaders Nicolas Lodeiro, and Will Bruin the team packs an offensive power that has been performing lately, only once in last six matches have they only score a goal. For the club the winning streak is a club record and they are going to try to extend the most possible. Still it looks hard, despite the recent five games unbeaten  at away, above all that they have struggle against Timbers in last four matches.

Prediction
An intense rivalry, with the Cascadia Cup as the most visible element, this match is sure to bring the fans to the stand, therefore the fans support is secured. And I expect the spectable in the field to reflect this, as the home team pushes to get a good result.
Portland Timbers have a positive record against Seattle Sounders at Providence Park in last five matches, with four victories and a one draw. The motivation to break from the negative streak against a direct rival, together with a push in Cascadia Cup Standing, and a very positive record in Providence Park should be enough elements to break the positive streak of Seattle Sounders, that carry a good form, but now will encounter a thought match, and is yet to see if they are up to the challenge, therefore the value is with the home team with the asian handicap.

Portland Timbers vs FC Dallas
2018, September 30, 04:30 hrs

Portland Timbers
The Timbers arrived to this match in playoffs positions still many matches to play and they know they can not give up taking points to secure the qualification. More over that they are not that far from Western Conference top position currently held by FC Dallas. A win here would put the team just three points shy from FC Dallas.

In the last six matches, the team has a better performance at home with three wins, but on the road the team struggle with two consecutive defeats there, in the advantage is that this match is played in their home Providence Park.

FC Dallas
Could be qualified to the MLS Playoffs before this match starts if there is a draw in the match of Galaxy vs Whitecaps. If not they will need a draw or victory to clinch the playoff position.

The team arrives with a positive form to this match, with only one defeat at away in last five matches. Winning the last away match againt Vancouver Whitecaps by 1-2.
If there is something that characterizes FC Dallas away matches is that both teams are able to score, as it has been in the last six matches away from the Toyota Stadium. Have also in consideration that at home the team is also a powerful scoring power, yet collects way better results at home with more wins there.

Prediction
Both teams have important offensive players, for the Timbers: swedish Armenteros,  and argentinian couple Sebastian Blanco and Diego Valeri.
Meanwhile for FC Dallas, argentinian M. Urruti, belgian R. Lamah and swiss defender R. Ziegler.
Therefore the offensive power is granted, and with five out of last six played in Providence Park between them seeing goals from both teams, I sense we are in for a very offensive match, with goals from both sides, therefore the over 2.75 goals seems very likely.

Over 2.75 AH with 7 units @ 1.77 at Pinnacle
