Competition: MLS

Market: San Jose Earthquakes win

Odds: 23/20 @ Bet 365

With the chance to shore up their position in the top-seven, a resurgent San Jose will make the trip to British Columbia in the early hours of Sunday.

Starting with the hosts, coming off the backing of a humiliating 4-0 hammering away at New England in midweek, Vancouver Head Coach Marc Dos Santos finds his position in British Columbia coming under increasing scrutiny. Now slipping to the foot of the Western Conference, the Whitecaps have lost each of their last four MLS matches on the bounce, shipping 14 and managing to register just once in return. A huge part of Salt Lake’s continued issues this season has been their on-going struggles at the BC Place Stadium. Suffering a 3-0 hammering against Sporting KC in their last appearance on home soil, Sunday’s hosts have recorded just a single victory in British Columbia since the start of May.

As for the visitors, while Vancouver might be continuing on a worrying run of form, the same cannot be said for a San Jose outfit who have reclaimed their spot in the play-offs. Picking up a very impressive 3-1 win away at Western title outsiders LA Galaxy last time out, the Earthquakes have won back-to-back MLS matchups and it is also worth noting that they have now won four of their last five appearances. Also tasting defeat just once since the 12th of May, Matías Almeyda’s men have also begun to show some consistency outside of California. Now losing just one of their last four matches on the road, San Jose should be confident of extending their winning run on Sunday.
