Portland to win and over 2.5 goals is 15/8.   

Match preview

It's ninth in the west vs fifth in the east with Orlando City the side looking to continue their bright start to the campaign in the cross-conference affair.

Last weekend, in another away game on the other side of the country, the Lions enjoyed a surprise 1-0 victory over LA Galaxy.

Facundo Torres's goal with just nine minutes on the clock proved to be the difference at Dignity Health Sports Park.

That is a second win of the season for Óscar Pareja's team so, despite suffering a surprise home loss to FC Cincinnati, things are looking good for Orlando.

Portland Timbers meanwhile started with back-to-back draws, against New England and LAFC, before a victory over Austin.

However, Giovanni Savarese's side then encountered their first bump in the road, getting hammered 4-1 by FC Dallas in Frisco.

That is just the sixth time since September 2018 Portland have conceded 4+ in any match.

Back at Providence Park, will the Timbers Army see a reaction from last season's MLS Cup finalists?
