Competition: MLS

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/4 @ 1xBet

Looking to make it three domestic victories on the spin in midweek, Houston will travel to BC Place when they meet Vancouver in the early hours of Thursday.

Starting with the hosts, crashing back down to earth last weekend thanks to a downbeat 3-1 loss away at St. Louis City, Vancouver will certainly be glad to make a return to home soil here. Despite losing three of their last four meetings against MLS opposition, the Caps do have the feel of a squad seeking some much-needed stability. However, although Vanni Sartini’s men might have recorded just a sole MLS clean sheet since the end of April, they have continued on an eye-catching flurry at BC Place. Last seen in front of their own supporters grabbing a deserved 2-0 win against Seattle, the midweek hosts have mustered 10 points from their previous four appearances in British Columbia. – a run that stems back to April 5th. Likewise, picking up a 2-1 victory when they last welcomed Houston to BC Place 10 months ago, Vancouver will be seeking a repeat display here.

As for the visitors, putting in another eye-catching display last time out as they claimed a 2-1 victory at home against Austin, Houston have impressed many across the MLS since opening the 2023 campaign. With a play-off ticket at the top of their agenda this time around, Ben Olsen’s men have clinched back-to-back domestic wins for the first time since the end of April. Extending on their US Open Cup adventure on May 23rd thanks to a stunning 4-0 romp at home against Minnesota, the Orange Crush will be desperate to make another MLS statement here. Suffering just a pair of defeats from any of their last 11 appearances across all competitions, Houston have also notched six strikes in their back-to-back victories. It should be noted, with 10 of the previous 12 showdowns between Thursday’s opponents finishing with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome in midweek.

Bet: Both teams to score at Vancouver Whitecaps vs Houston Dynamo 3/4 for Thursday’s MLS battle @ 1xBet
