Betting on New York Red Bulls to win at Portland Timbers could be attractive, as the famous side are looking for points to shoot them up the Major League Soccer table.
Timbers lie towards the bottom of the division at the moment, so even home advantage may not be enough to stop Red Bulls – who boast players such as the former Arsenal and Barcelona striker Thierry Henry in their ranks.
Betting on New York to come out on top in the match could therefore be profitable, with odds set at 29/20 ahead of the game.
This means those who stake £20 at bwin.com will be receiving returns of almost £50 if their side is triumphant in the tie at Portland.
And for people who think Red Bulls will shut out their opponents in the game, even more money could be available.
Odds are being offered of 31/10 for New York to win without conceding a goal, so those who place a wager of £20 at bwin.com on this outcome could be in for returns of more than £80.
New York are not in great form at the moment, having taken just seven points from their last six games, which is exactly the same return as Timbers have earned from the same period.
But the Red Bulls are unbeaten in their last five, breaking a run of four draws in a row with a 2-1 win over New England in their most recent match.
Another draw could therefore be a tempting bet, with odds on offer of 50/1 on a thrilling 3-3 tie.
This would mean a bet of £20 at bwin.com could return a whopping £1,000 – which may tempt some MLS fans into having a flutter on the game.
New York have the added bonus going into the match of knowing that, due to how tight their section of the MLS is at the moment, they could leap a number of places in the division, perhaps even into the top four, with a victory.
