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


None of the last nine meetings between these two have produced away wins; three wins for Vancouver and three victories for LAFC. The Black and Gold are winless in three visits to British Columbia, but did leave victories when they first visited in 2018, Carlos Vela on target in a 2-0 success. 

Both teams to score is 4/7.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is 10/11. 

LAFC to win and over 2.5 goals is 15/8.

Cristian Arango is 9/2 to break the deadlock and 5/4 to score in a fifth consecutive MLS match.

Match preview

Can anyone halt the unstoppable force that is LAFC right now?

On Wednesday night, the Black and Gold won again, this time seeing off a very strong FC Dallas side 3-1 at Banc of California Stadium.

Danny Musovski, Cristian Arango and then substitute Kwadwo Opoku on target; they've now scored in 35 consecutive regular season home games.

This means Steve Cherundolo's side have taken 13 points from their last five outings, winning 11 of 17 MLS matches in 2022 overall.

So, LAFC are now seven points clear at the top of the overall standings, looking to extend that advantage before Sunday and Monday's matches.

With Giorgio Chiellini and Gareth Bale to join, they're available from 8 July, surely this team is only going to get even better?

Thus, claiming points for Vancouver Whitecaps here seems unlikely, but the home side do come into this clash in good form.

Vanni Sartini's side were last in action a week ago, held to a goalless draw by New England Revolution at home.

This is a decent point for the Caps, who've now accumulated 16 from their last nine outings, closing in on the Western Conference play-off spots.

Here though, LAFC are likely to be too strong at BC Place.
