Competition: MLS

Market: St. Louis City double chance

Odds: 12/11 @ 1xBet

Looking to spring an upset on their travels in midweek, St. Louis City will travel to BC Place in the early hours of Thursday when they meet Vancouver.

Starting with the hosts, while Vancouver might have gained a string of plaudits prior to September’s international break, the Whitecaps have failed to find a similar level. Last seen over the weekend missing out on what they would have billed as a real opportunity as they eventually had to settle for a 2-2 draw against DC United, Vanni Sartini’s men have the feel of a squad seeking a recent boost. In fact, on a run that is highlighted by a woeful 4-1 drumming at the hands of Houston last month, Vancouver are without a win from any of their previous four MLS appearances. Showing some recent defensive issues and shipping 10 strikes on that four-match winless rut, Sartini’s side will also be worried by their most recent meeting against Thursday’s guests. Blown away thanks to a 3-1 loss when they travelled to Missouri back on May 28th, it is also worth highlighting that the midweek hosts have won just a pair of their last seven showdowns at BC Place.

As for the visitors, putting in another rampant performance over the weekend as they cruised their way to a 4-1 romp against Sporting Kansas City, St. Louis have enjoyed a history-making campaign this season. Holding a remarkable 10-point buffer at the top of the Western Conference standings and gaining a string of plaudits, Steve Trittschuh’s men are unbeaten in each of their previous five straight MLS appearances since returning from September’s international break. With their recent turn in fortunes highlighted by an eye-catching 2-1 win away at Minnesota last month, St. Louis should be excited by a trip to Vancouver in the early hours of Thursday. With attacking talisman Samuel Adeniran now notching six goals in his previous seven outings across all competitions, Trittschuh’s side will be looking to make another statement on the road. Landing that 3-1 win when they welcomed Vancouver to town back on May 28th, an away double chance can be found at appealing odds here.
