Toronto will end the three-away-games series this Saturday when they travel to BMO Field to try and grab their first win of the new campaign in MLS.
Vancouver Whitecaps did not open the new season in any better way since they only managed to claim a single point from two rounds ahead of the Canadian derby.
The Welsh manager Carl Robinson must figure something out quickly when it comes to Vancouver’s defensive line.
The Whitecaps have been so easy to break down at the start of the season as they allowed as many as five goals in the last two matches.
The team had a dismal visit to Mexico in mid-week where they suffered a 2-0 los to Tigres UANL in the CONCACAF Champions League.
The MLS Cup runners-up Toronto had a pretty tough schedule at the start of the new season.
Greg Vanney’s men drew both of their away fixtures at Real salt Lake and Philadelphia Union.
The good news is that Jozy Altidore found the net in the last weekend’s game with Phila. The main star Sebastian Giovinco is, however, yet to score his opener in the new season.
Vancouver Whitecaps vs Toronto: Head to head
Toronto have been much more successful in head to head encounters with Vancouver Whitecaps.
The two sides met each other in the Canadian Championships final last year and Toronto took the title thanks to an away game (it was 2-2 on aggregate).
Six of the last seven meetings between the two Canadian sides offered the option of both teams scoring.
Vancouver Whitecaps vs Toronto: Prediction
Since none of the two teams can be especially proud of their defensive lines and since most of the previous H2H clashes were packed with goals, we can’t resist but have the BTTS pick as the top betting option at 7/10 odds.
The value must be with the visitors who have the stronger squad, but for some reason are priced up at 4/7 not to lose the match.
Vancouver Whitecaps vs Toronto: Bet Tips
The number one bet will be Toronto not to lose at 4/7.
You can also go with the BTTS pick at the odds of 7/10.
