    Los-Angeles-GalaxySeattle-Sounders odds

    MLS Odds:It all comes down to this: two teams with 60 points tied atop the Western Conference will face off twice in 6 days to decide who gets the Supporters Shield. Both teams let opportunities slip by them last weekend to take any points, so it is only fitting this home and home will determine who is the best team in not only the West, but the MLS.

    Two prolific offenses will look to create a back-and-forth, up-and-down match in game 1 to give themselves the advantage, but LA did win their only meeting this season in Seattle with a 3 - 0 winon July 28.

    That will push the Sounders to be aggressive and not sit back at any point knowing the LA defense is what got the Galaxy where they are, only giving up 33 goals to Seattle's 48 GA.

    Quick Analysis & Prediction

    Quick Analysis:

    This is what makes the season fun. Two teams, first place on the line with the 1 and 2 teams in the standings, deciding which is the best.

    They both let themselves down last weekend, knowing they could have used even 1 point to take a mini advantage over the other coming into this home and home battle that will decide who will wear the Supporters Shield in the post-season.

    Prediction:

    Wide open! Seattle cannot sit back on the road hoping to go home next week and do what they couldn't do here in LA. LA knows they have to get it done here and not need points in Seattle and follow up a loss as they head there.

    I love this Over. Someone will find the net for a second time in a 1 - 1 match, and if you look at the European Prop 'will both teams score' it is listed at -180 to Yes.

    I agree! That is juice if I ever saw it on that prop bet!

    Move it to 3 and get the price of about even money and expect a shootout that will be a blast to watch on ESPN 2 at8:15Eastern time!
