The season of horror has continued for the San Jose Earthquake as they lost another game on the weekend. The team will attempt to do better this week as they take on the Seattle Sounders at home. Both teams will be desperate to get a victory since it will be a season booster so I am expecting a good football game.
The San Jose Earthquake played away from home in Montreal over the weekend where they lost to the Montreal Impact by 2 goals and the issue will be that they will need to travel home and get ready for this game with no time to spare. It is a long journey from Montreal to San Jose and it will be interesting to see whether fatigue will have an impact on the team. As it currently stands, San Jose are at the bottom of the Western Conference and it is hard to see them getting out of that position but this will be a great chance for the team to get some points since they are playing another struggling team and are at home.
Looking at the Seattle Sounders, they would have hoped for a much better season. Winning this game will move the Sounders within 3 points of the 9th spot but it seems unlikely that the team will get much higher up the ladder this season. That being said, it has been a good few weeks for the Seattle Sounders as they have managed to win 2 games and draw 2 games so that is a massive positive. The away side will hope to win this game and I think they are good enough to beat a struggling San Jose team.
All in all, I am predicting Seattle winning this match. The Sounders are playing much better football and I think it only makes sense to side with them winning. We are getting a good price to wager on a Seattle Sounders victory so that is the wager which I am going to suggest we make.
