Pick: Seattle Sounders Win & Over 2.5 Goals

(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 28 May 2022)

Preview: That maiden away victory in MLS continues to be elusive for Charlotte FC, whose six away encounters as the league’s latest franchise have so far returned one point and a meagre three goals. Is there luck about to change for the better, though? They visit Lumen Field for the first time seeking the huge scalp of the Seattle Sounders.

Seattle Sounders – Refreshed and raring to go?

League-wide, there are only three teams with lower point tallies than the 13 of last season’s runners-up from the Western Conference. But this is a Seattle Sounders outfit that has had to endure a schedule like no other, a deep run in the CONCACAF Champions League undoubtedly impacting upon their ability to recover in time for their weekend MLS commitments. Could that be about to change, though?

Unlike a lot of teams (and their opponents Charlotte are one of them), the Sounders didn’t have a midweek cup game. Instead they had something rare to them – a full week’s preparation for what some may perceive to be a gimme fixture. I’m not sure they will see it that way, though. Brian Schmetzer desperately needs his men to begin accumulating points after collecting only six of the last 18 available (W2 L4).

Key Stat: Seattle Sounders haven’t recorded a clean sheet in any of four home matches so far this season, and are currently on their longest run in their MLS history without a defensive shutout during the regular season (seven matches).

Charlotte – Away woes set to be compounded?

The sound you won’t be able to hear but can visualise is that of alarm bells ringing. This is because one of the league’s seven sides without an away victory this season are back out on the open road over the weekend. In fact, only the Vancouver Whitecaps are putting up less resistance on their travels in 2022 than the MLS’ latest franchise. A Charlotte FC whose six away matches so far would yield a single point.

It would be thoroughly unexpected, then, were they to claim a first ever away MLS away win at the home of the current CONCACAF Champions League holders. Five away defeats out of six might suggest the result at Lumen Field is inevitable, but three came via single-goal margins. They’re not completely devoid of form, either, winning two of their past three league games prior to Thursday’s 3-1 cup loss at New York RB.

Key Stat: No team has a larger discrepancy between points gained at home and away than Charlotte FC in MLS this season. David Tepper’s team have earned 15 of their 16 points back at Bank of America Stadium in North Carolina.

Seattle Sounders Vs Charlotte FC Betting Advice

There is simply no getting away from the fact Seattle Sounders are underachieving – by their incredibly lofty standards – in 2022. They’ve invested a lot – physically, but also emotionally – in capturing this year’s CONCACAF Champions League and their league form has paid the price. However, a full week’s rest leading up this game should stand to benefit them immensely, and I am anticipating a big performance in turn.


Seattle Sounders Vs Charlotte FC – Key Facts:

  • Lumen Field is set to stage the first ever meeting between Seattle Sounders and Charlotte FC. The former have amassed three points fewer than the 28th and most recent franchise to be inducted into Major League Soccer.
  • Seattle Sounders are W2 L2 when playing at home in MLS 2022. They would conceded in all four encounters here at Lumen Field, scoring exactly three in each victory.
  • Charlotte FC are still searching for their first away win in MLS after going their first six such matches earning a single point (D1 L5). Three of those losses did see them grab a consolation goal.


Charlotte have been wretched on their travels so far, losing five of six matches having drawn the other 0-0 in Colorado. They’ve scored three times in those contests but never more than once, and yet just two of those defeats were ‘to nil’. Meanwhile, the Sounders have either scored three or none (both twice) across four home league games this term, conceding each time. It is 29/20 we see a home win with three or more match goals.
