Venue: BC Place Stadium.
Vancouver Whitecaps had the lowest number of victories in the previous MLS campaign, so it’s understandable to see their fans have very small hopes for upcoming months. The team has performed well in a lot of pre-season matches though, so it will be interesting to observe the opening clash against Sporting Kansas City.
Visitors from this match haven’t played big role in previous seasons too, winning only four points more than Vancouver. Bookies see this team as favorite for the match at BC Place Stadium, priced at 2.10 odds.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Sporting Kansas City Prediction
We are not convinced Vancouver should embrace the role of underdog here. They were as equally bad as Sporting Kansas City in the previous MLS campaign, while having much better results in the pre-season.
Vancouver defeated Dallas 4-1, New England Revolution 2-0 and Minnesota United 2-1. There were two losses in between to LA Galaxy and Portland Timbers. Overall, they are doing well against all teams which don’t belong to top tier. We love the value offered on home victory here, but stake should not be high.
Also, tradition says we should witness a lot of goals. Over 2.5 FT is going to be the alternative bet.
Vancouver Whitecaps vs Sporting Kansas City Bet Tips
