Reason For Real Salt Lake vs San Jose Earthquakes Betting Tips
Real Salt Lake suffered a narrow defeat away at Portland Timbers last time out and will be looking to make up for that result by picking up three points at home on Thursday. SJ Earthquakes made it two wins from two games when they convincingly beat Orlando City 3-0 in their last match but the visitors away form has been disappointing of late.
The stats suggest that three points are on the cards for Real Salt Lake on Thursday and that we are likely to see both teams score and over 2.5 goals produced in the process.
Real Salt Lake are unbeaten in their last five home games against SJ Earthquakes which includes a 4-0 win in 2017. Both teams have scored in four of the pairs’ last seven encounters and over 2.5 goals have been produced in three of the duos’ last six meetings, which is why we’re expecting goals in this game at both ends of the pitch.
The form of both clubs heading into Thursday’s clash also suggests that we will see a home win, as Real Salt Lake have won four of their last six matches and SJ Earthquakes have lost three of their last six matches, against LAFC 4-0, Sporting KC 2-1, and Colorado Rapids 2-1, and provides part of the reasoning behind our prediction of a 2-1 final scoreline on Thursday.
The performances of both teams point towards goals being scored in this game, as both teams scored in four of SJ Earthquakes’ last six matches and over 2.5 goals were produced in each of the visitors’ last five matches, while over 2.5 goals were produced in three of Real Salt Lakes’ last six matches.
Real Salt Lake have won three of their last four home games and have looked very strong in their own backyard and the hosts have scored at least two goals in each of those wins, while SJ Earthquakes have lost their last three away games and two of those results ended 2-1.
We’re confident that Real Salt Lake will win on Thursday and have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1. These two clubs are separated by just one point in the Western Conference table and have played to a very similar level all season long but Real Salt Lake have the home advantage and head into the game as the clear form favourites and we expect them to edge out their guests 2-1.
