Why Pumas UNAM is a good bet versus the Seattle Sounders
Make no mistake, Pumas has Seattle on the ropes. All the Mexican Liga team had to do was play within themselves in the second half to secure at least a 1-goal victory. That didn’t happen, which is why Pumas is the underdog heading into the second leg. But Pumas played well in the match right after the draw against the Sounders. The odds make the underdogs an overlay.

After going down 0-2, Seattle could have decided to call it quits. The Sounders rallied to force the draw, but we shouldn’t read too much into it. Seattle showed they’re simply better than Pumas. The Sounders had a slight possession edge, 55% to 45%. The edge should be more significant at Lumen Field.

Final Betting Analysis: Pumas UNAM at Seattle Sounders
Seattle rallied to draw with Pumas and, yes, the Sounders did have a possession edge, but we shouldn’t read too much into the draw. Both of Seattle’s 2 goals came via penalty kicks.
That’s not to say that Pumas didn’t commit fouls. It is to say that Seattle didn’t play much better than Pumas in the first leg. So although the Sounders have an edge because this is on their pitch, we shouldn’t expect Pumas to roll over for the MLS team.
In fact, Pumas offers overlay odds to win this in regulation. Before the draw versus Pumas, the Sounders had lost 2 straight. Both losses happened versus suspect MLS rivals, Inter Miami and San Jose.
The loss to San Jose, which has a single win in 9 matches so far this season, is especially worrisome. If Pumas fixes the sloppy play and doesn’t get overly aggressive on defense, they can win this match. Pumas to win in regulation is the play.
