Against All Odds: Familiar faces to do the business

Big things are expected from these two...can they deliver?
Big things are expected from these two...can they deliver?

It's MLS Play-off season and Paul Robinson is expecting goals when LA Galaxy travel to Seattle.

"It’s all about goals for us tonight though and the hosts have had five of their last half dozen on this ground reward under 2.5 layers."

Lay Under 2.5 goals in Seattle v LA Galaxy @ 1.9620/21

Both of these teams narrowly missed out on securing second place and automatic qualification to the Final Series, but it will probably be LA who will be the most disappointed given their status and the fact that they lost their last two games.

The Sounders dropped points in three of their final four outings so they will be kicking themselves as well, but they will at least be in a better place mentally having completed the regular season with a win.

It's all about goals for us tonight though and the hosts have had five of their last half dozen on this ground reward under 2.5 layers. The visitors have had four of their last five MLS fixtures finish with three goals or more as well, so the recent stats are pointing towards a high-scoring affair.

Obviously the concern is that with so much on the line, the players may freeze and play with caution, however we need to remember that the likes of Clint Dempsey, Obafemi Martins, Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard, have all played at World Cups, so they shouldn't be phased.

We are getting good value on opposing under 2.5 goals here, so with it trading at around the 1.9620/21 mark, I have to make it my lay of the day.
