The Vancouver Whitecaps look for a victory after coming away with points in four of their last six matches. The Vancouver Whitecaps have allowed 21 goals in 21 matches and have pitched seven shutouts. David Ousted has come away with 59 saves and has allowed four goals in his last three starts. Offensively, Vancouver has scored 24 goals overall and two goals in their last three matches. Octavio Rivero leads Vancouver with seven goals, Pedro Morales has four assists and Kekuta Manneh has 49 shot attempts. It’s been hit or miss for the Vancouver Whitecaps at home, going 2-3-0 in their last five matches.
San Jose beat Vancouver in their match back in April, 1-0. However, Vancouver leads the series, 2-2-1 in the last five meetings against San Jose. The away team has never won in the all-time series between these two teams.
Four of the last five meetings between these two teams have produced two or less goals, and both teams have had issues finding the back of the net this season. I’m going to side with the under in this matchup.
