San Jose vs Portland: Top Free Betting Tips

San Jose will take on Portland in an exciting clash at PayPal Park on 18 June. Both teams come into this match on the back of impressive victories in their last outings. San Jose secured a hard-fought 2-1 win over Philadelphia Union, while Portland produced a dominant defensive display to beat FC Dallas 1-0.

Match Result Prediction: San Jose to Win

San Jose has only lost thrice to Portland Times since October 2014. They are on a four-match unbeaten run and have not tasted defeat in their last ten matches at PayPal Park. The Earthquakes will fancy their chances against Portland, who have only won once in their last 11 competitive fixtures. Take their 2-1 win over St Luis City out of the picture and fans will have to go back to September 2022 for their other away win. Given the Timbers' struggles on the road, it is easy to back San Jose for the three points on offer.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Despite the struggles on the road, Portland fans will not fault their attacking unit. They have only been shut out thrice in their last 20 matches, with two of these being goalless draws. However, they have only kept one clean sheet in this process and it looks unlikely they will be able to silence San Jose in their backyard. Based on this, we are expecting to see blows exchanged as both goalkeepers are forced to pick the ball out from their net.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to San Jose

At home, San Jose is a different beast with 10 goals scored and 4 conceded. They average 2 goals per game in this period and should manage that against Portland, who have the propensity to concede on the road. Timbers have struggled to score efficiently on the road but will feel confident at PayPal Park, where they have scored 11 goals in their last four trips. While we expect San Jose to triumph, they can succumb to their rivals' offence but should come out on top with a 2-1 scoreline.

San Jose vs Portland: Form, Recent Games, and News

San Jose Earthquakes Preview

As it stands, San Jose is only three points away from the top but has played a game more. They need to keep pressure on St Louis City, who have struggled in recent weeks, tasting defeat to FC Dallas and drawing against LA Galaxy. All eyes will be on Cristian Espinoza and Jeremy Ebobisse to deliver the goals. Ebobisse has been in good form of late, hitting the back of the net twice in three matches to be one short of Espinoza's 8-goal tally for the campaign.

Portland Timbers Preview

Defeats to Sporting Kansas City and Minnesota United derailed Portland's push for promotion playoffs. They have since rebounded with a draw against Seattle Sounders on the road and a home over FC Dallas at Providence Park. A positive result in San Jose will be dependent on what kind of night Evander has. The Brazilian playmaker is leading their charts with 4 goals and 3 assists to his name and will be instrumental in getting behind the Quakes' lines.
