The Seattle Sounders joined the MLS in 2009 and won their first MLS Cup championship in 2016 after beating Toronto FC on penalties in Toronto. The Sounders haven't missed the playoffs in franchise history, also capturing the Supporters’ Shield in 2014. Sounders started the 2016 season poorly but heated up when it mattered most. Most importantly they grabbed fourth place in the Western Conference, providing a chance to play at home in the first round of the playoffs. That's a big deal in one of the league's loudest stadiums.

How To Make Money On Seattle Sounders
The Seattle Sounders had a remarkable resurgence in the second half of the 2016 season, which helped them enter the playoffs in scintillating form. Critically, the Sounders were able to play their first round playoff game against Sporting Kansas City at home. They had 48 points, only one better than Sporting. The Sounders play extremely well in front of a heavily biased Seattle fan base and they were managed to squeeze out a 1-0 victory to advance.
In the regular season, Seattle won 10 of their 17 home games. While it wasn't one of the best home records, Seattle is much more proficient on home soil. Playing nearly flawlessly in the latter stages of the season, the Sounders relied on Jordan Morris, who repeatedly came up with clutch performances throughout Sounders' title winning campaign.
Clint Dempsey was mired by injuries and didn't contribute as much as you'd usually expect. The aging forward should help Seattle's cause in the next season or so.
Seattle didn't have a particularly potent offense. But their defense wasn't noticeaby porous so a nice balance was struck. They scored 44 goals and allowed 43, so there's no overtly discernible over/under trend. You'll have to investigate individual matchups further to formulate your Sounders' over/under betting strategy.
