Bet On The Crew to Tie at Sounders

Injuries will likely decide tonight’s match with Seattle Sounders.

The betting in Vegas and off shore is on Seattle to win, with the line set at 1.8 ($10 nets $8). A good bet tonight would be for a tie with the line currently set at 3.25 ($10 nets $22.50). This would be a very respectable result for the Black & Gold, battered and far from home.

A blindly loyal Crew fan would lay down on the win with the line at a disrespectful 4 ($10 nets $30). As much as El Luchador wants to believe, has children to feed and won't be making this bet tonight.

Seattle Injuries include: Cuban midfielder Osvaldo Alonso (quad strain), former Crew member Brad Evans who is questionable, and defensive midfielder Zach Scott who suffered an abdominal injury against Dallas. The big question mark is former Freddie Ljungberg who has suffered mysterious, severe migraine headaches but is listed now back in the line up tonight.

Crew injuries include Goalkeeper William Hesmer, defender Frankie Hejduk and midfielder Brian Carroll, who is expected to miss a minimum of two games with the separated shoulder he received in the mugging by San Jose Wednesday night. Also out are Adam Moffat and defender Andy Iro.

El Luchador is calling it a tie, 1-1.
