How to watch Portland Thorns vs. Orlando PrideNWSL picks for Portland Thorns vs. Orlando Pride
Before you tune in to Friday’s match, you need to see the Portland Thorns vs. Orlando Pride picks from SportsLine’s soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine’s top soccer editor for nearly five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. Sutton has also been on a roll with his best bets, going 100-78 in his last 178 soccer picks, returning over $2,300 for $100 bettors.
For Portland Thorns vs. Orlando Pride, Sutton is picking the Thorns to win 3-1. Between Portland’s strong offense and Orlando’s weak defense, the expert sees this match going as expected.
Portland features one of the league’s fiercest offenses. Led by Sophia Smith, who ranks second across the league with six goals, the Thorns have scored 15 goals over eight matches this season. The home team has also been getting scoring support from Kelli Hubly and Christine Sinclair, who along with Smith have found the back of the net over Portland’s recent stretch. All of that fire power is going to be hard for the Pride to contain, especially given how they have played lately.
“Orlando features the league’s leakiest defense, conceding 18 goals this season,” Sutton told SportsLine. “Plus, the Pride have been held scoreless in their last two games on the road, which is one of the main reasons I’m expecting a comfortable victory for the home side on Sunday.”
