Portland Timbers MLS Betting

Either Portland or archrival Seattle has won the Western Conference in each of the last seven years. The Timbers have claimed three Western Conference titles, but this franchise could be ready to finally falter after years of being competitive. Portland is one of the oldest teams in the MLS coming into the 2022 campaign, and talisman Diego Valeri returned to Argentina to finish his career. Diego Chara is still expected to play significant minutes despite being 36, and Sebastian Blanco is coming off a knee injury at the age of 34. They added youth in 19-year-old David Ayala, but there are a ton of concerns for a team that just made the MLS Cup.

Portland Timbers 2022 Preview

The Timbers have just three wins through the first 14 games of the 2022 season. Portland has not looked sharp aside from a 7-2 win over Sporting Kansas City in mid-May, and Sebastian Blanco has been somewhat limited with just five starts this season. New acquisition David Ayala has not worked out as expected, and the back line is conceding 1.64 goals per game.

The xG numbers for Portland are not promising the rest of the year. The Timbers are a cumulative -0.66 in xG, and that my signal a sell-off for a veteran club that needs to get young in order to be competitive once again. This could be the last season we see Chara and Blanco in Portland.

The Pacific Northwest is a hotbed for soccer, and after the success of the Seattle Sounders, it was obvious that Major League Soccer was going to put another team in the region. The Portland Timbers were awarded an expansion franchise in 2009, becoming the second major professional team in the city. Since their founding, they have captured the hearts of the city and are one of the most fervently supported teams in the MLS.

Portland sold out every single home game from 2011 to mid-2021, and the fans got to watch a lot of quality soccer at Providence Park. The Timbers finished atop the Western Conference in 2013 and 2017, and they won the 2015 MLS Cup with a 2-1 victory on the road against the Columbus Crew. They have been to the MLS Cup two other times, but they fell in the finals to Atlanta United in 2018 and lost a heartbreaker to New York City FC in 2021. Felipe Mora scored in the fourth minute of extra time to send the match to overtime, but the Timbers lost in penalties.

The Timbers also claimed the 2020 MLS is Back Tournament during the COVID shortened 2020 season.
