Portland scored a nice win in their previous match, after having lost each of their previous two matches. They will now look to keep it going on Saturday, when they will host Sporting Kansas City. The visitors have been in really solid form lately and are coming into this match after winning three in a row.

Sporting KC (10-11-7) were lucky enough to take an early lead in their home match against Houston, and effectively held on to that till the end. That was their third consecutive win, all at home, while keeping clean sheets in the last two. Sporting KC are now sitting at the 9th spot of the Western Conference with 37 points, three behind Portland and five outside the playoffs. They have been mediocre on the road so far (3-6-4), where they have lost three of their last five.

Portland (12-11-4) are also coming off a slim win, by 0-1 at home against Real Salt Lake. Valeri took an early lead at the 16th minute and Portland held on to that lead. That win came after two consecutive losses, as Portland have now won three of their last five, all at home. They are sitting at the 8th spot of the Western Conference with 40 points, two outside the playoff spots with a match in hand. Portland have not been very strong at home so far (6-3-2), with two of those losses coming in their last three.

Free Pick:
Under 3.25 Goals (-118)

Sporting KC have stood greatly in this venue over the years (4-2-4) and have lost just once here since 2012. This is a huge match for both sides, as they are both looking to break into the top-seven and the playoff spots. Portland would like to make home advantage count but Sporting KC have been great lately. Taking the Under 3.25 Goals here.
