Market: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at Vancouver Whitecaps vs SJ Earthquakes
Odds: 20/21 @ Bet365
With the MLS stage back underway, teams in both the Western and Eastern Conference are jockeying for an early advantage. On that note, Vancouver Whitecaps welcome SJ Earthquakes to the BC Place Stadium on Thursday.
For the hosts, after only finishing just a single point from topping the Western Conference last season, Vancouver are hoping to go one better this year. After 11 MLS games so far this season, Vancouver have won four, drawn two and lost five, scoring 12 and conceding 20 in return, the hosts hold the third worst defensive record in both the Eastern and the Western Conferences. Despite their poor defensive record, Vancouver currently sit fifth in the table and a win on Thursday will see them jump up to third. As for their recent form, Vancouver have now only won one of their last six, drawing two and losing three. Carrying on their recent defensive issues, Vancouver have only collected one clean sheet in their last eight and five of those have seen over 2.5 goals.
As for the visitors, after securing a mid-table finish last season, San Jose have struggled to adjust to the new MLS season. After nine games at the start of the year, San Jose have won just two, drawing two and losing five, scoring 15 and conceding 15 in return. With a points tally of eight out of a possible 27, the visitors now sit 10th of the Western Conference with just their two-goal advantage keeping them off bottom spot. As for their recent form, San Jose have now picked up just one win in their last nine, drawing two and losing six. Like the hosts, the visitors have also struggled defensively, San Jose have now failed to pick up a single clean sheet in their last 17 MLS matchups, with 13 of those ending with over 2.5 goals.
