LAFC vs Vancouver Whitecaps betting tips: Major League Soccer preview, predictions and odds

LAFC won three of their first five meetings with Vancouver but, since then, the Whitecaps are unbeaten in four against them. However, the Caps have never won at Banc of California Stadium.

LAFC to win and both teams to score NO is 7/5.

LAFC to win and over 2.5 goals is 20/21.

Carlos Vela has scored four goals in five starts against the Caps. He is 11/4 to break the deadlock, 4/6 to score anytime and 11/4 to score 2+ goals in this game.

Match preview

It's top vs bottom in the Western Conference, so there'll be only one winner, right?

LAFC have been generally very impressive so far this season, swatting aside Inter Miami 2-0 at DRV PNK Stadium last weekend.

Kwadwo Opoku and then Ismael Tajouri-Shradi on target in Fort Lauderdale as the visitors easily beat ten-men.

Overall, Steve Cherundolo's side have seven points after an equally impressive 3-0 win over Colorado Rapids and a nervy draw with Portland.

In the latter, it took a 93rd minute tap-in from Mamadou Fall to snatch a point for the Black and Gold.

Nevertheless, LAFC are currently first in the Western Conference and you wouldn't back against them being there at the end of the season too.

Similarly, Vancouver Whitecaps are at the foot of the west and they might still be there come the end of decision day too.

Vanni Sartini's side did hold champions New York City FC to a goalless draw at BC Place in their only home match so far.

However, either side, the Blue-and-White have lost two away games, 4-0 in Columbus and 2-1 at Houston Dynamo.

Last weekend, Lucas Cavallini poked home an opener, the Caps' first goal this season, but they still lost 2-1 PNC Stadium.

Everything points towards a home win in this Sunday night clash at Banc of California Stadiun.
