Portland Timbers and Nashville go head-to-head in midweek MLS action at Providence Park. On paper, these two teams look hard to split, as just one place and one point separates them in the current Western Conference table. Being the hosts, the Timbers are the bookies’ favourites, but this one could go either way. This promises to be an entertaining affair, and we hunt down the best betting odds and give you our top tips.

Portland Timbers Preview – Will the Oregon outfit stretch unbeaten run?

Giovani Savarese’s Portland Timbers find themselves in seventh place in the Western Conference table at present. They are 17 points away from leaders Los Angeles and 11 points above bottom side Sporting Kansas City.

The Timbers have picked up seven league wins this term and scored 39 goals. They are the draw specialists in MLS, with ten of their 23 fixtures ending level. They have only lost six times, shipping 35 goals along the way.

Portland to keep a clean sheet

(odds taken 1752 GMT, Tuesday 2 August)

Portland have put together a solid eight-game unbeaten run, winning four and drawing four since suffering three straight losses back in May. The Oregon outfit were involved in an eight-goal thriller with Minnesota United last time out, drawing 4-4 away from home. Can they respond with a midweek home victory?

Nashville Preview – Can the visitors return to Tennessee with a positive result?

Nashville are currently a point above Portland in the Western Conference table. The team from Tennessee have won eight, drawn eight and lost seven of their 23 league fixtures. In the process, they have scored 29 and shipped 29.

Gary Smith’s men have struggled for wins of late, though, picking up just two from their last nine. After beating Seattle Sounders in mid-July, Nashville have taken just two points from a possible nine, drawing with Cincinnati and Vancouver Whitecaps and losing at home to LAFC.

Portland Timbers vs Nashville Betting Advice

These two met a month back and played out an entertaining encounter at Geodis Park. Goals from Sean Davis and Hany Mukhtar gave Nashville a 2-0 lead, but two goals in five second-half minutes from Dairon Asprilla and Jaroslaw Niezgoda earned Portland a point.

The first ever meeting between the pair took place in March 2020. The Timbers edged it at Providence Park, with Diego Valeri’s 12th-minute goal giving the home team a narrow 1-0 win.


Key Facts – Portland Timbers vs Nashville Betting Tip

  • Nashville have won just one of their past six
  • Portland are undefeated in eight, winning four and drawing four
  • The Timbers came from two goals down to earn a point in Nashville last month


Portland have moved up the table after an eight-match unbeaten streak. Things were looking ominous for the Oregon club when they lost three on the spin in May, but Giovanni Savarese’s side have responded in style.

The Timbers picked up a 1-0 win at Providence Park when these two met for the first time two years back, and we like the look of 3/1 for Portland to win by one goal again. The 1-0 home victory in midweek is nicely priced at 8/1.
