FC Dallas will be at home at Toyota Stadium as the Toros take on the Vancouver Whitecaps. This will be a Western Conference derby with both teams within 2 points of each other. As a result, we should expect a high-level game of soccer.
The Vancouver Whitecaps have a very hectic schedule having played midweek. The Canadian side takes on San Jose midweek and it will be interesting to see the fitness of the squad. Traveling away from home is never easy for the Whitecaps since it is a long trip from Vancouver to Dallas. In addition to that, they are up against a strong FC Dallas side so it will be very difficult for the visitors to leave this weekend with a win.

FC Dallas are yet to lose at home this season. The Toros won against the LA Galaxy in their last game and will be heading into this fixture with tons of confidence. This has been a strong side for a few seasons now and they will feel that this season is the perfect opportunity for them to win the MLS. This will be a tough game for the home side since Vancouver are very talented but at the Toyota Stadium, FC Dallas should be the favorites to get the three points.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that FC Dallas wins this game. Toyota Stadium has become a fortress for the Toros and I see no reason for that to end this weekend. Betting on FC Dallas is a reasonable play but a larger wager is suggested since the price is quite short. In addition to that, I am also a fan of the over 2.5 goals since both teams can score.
