NWSL pick for Portland Thorns vs. Orlando Pride
Before you tune in to Friday’s game, you need to see Portland Thorns vs. Orlando Pride picks from SportsLine football insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former college football player, has been SportsLine’s top editor for nearly five years. He has been following football closely for much longer and takes into account managerial tactics, projected line-ups and past performances to make the most informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the world. Sutton has also been on a roll with his best bets, going 100-78 in his last 178 football picks, returning more than $2,300 for $100 bettors.
For Portland Thorns against Orlando Pride, Sutton picks the Thorns to win 3-1. Between Portland’s strong attack and Orlando’s weak defense, the expert sees this game going as planned.
Portland features one of the fiercest offenses in the league. Led by Sophia Smith, who ranks second in the league with six goals, the Thorns have scored 15 goals in eight appearances this season. The home side also received support from Kelli Hubly and Christine Sinclair, who along with Smith found the back of the net during Portland’s recent streak. All that firepower is going to be tough for Pride to contain, especially given how they’ve been playing lately.
“Orlando has the most slippery defense in the league, giving up 18 goals this season,” Sutton told SportsLine. “Additionally, Pride have been held scoreless in their last two games on the road, which is one of the main reasons why I expect a comfortable win for the home side on Sunday.”
