Ready for more MLS betting tips? We certainly are! For our final selected fixture this coming weekend, we have chosen the matchup between LA Galaxy and Vancouver Whitecaps to focus on. It is shaping up to be an exciting Western Conference battle on Sunday night - who will come out on top?
As things stand, it’s safe to say that the two teams involved in this fixture have had two very contrasting starts to the season. Now we’re heading into the second half of the 2021 campaign, we’ll take a look at how both teams fare so far. We’ll also discuss the previous head to head encounters, whilst producing our expert betting tip just for you!
Just four points from leaders Seattle Sounders, LA Galaxy are definitely in the battle for the top of the Western Conference. There are four teams involved, including Galaxy, and it is shaping the second half of the season to be extremely entertaining to see who will come out on top. Whilst in a great position in the conference, LA Galaxy will be slightly concerned about their goal difference and a few results that currently loom over their heads. In a recent 4-0 loss to struggling FC Dallas, LA find themselves with a goal difference of 0, despite being third in the west. With a home game against a struggling Vancouver side, however, Galaxy will be looking at this as an opportunity to boost this stat.
Things have gone from bad to worse for Vancouver Whitecaps FC, who now find themselves 12th in the Western Conference, above only new MLS franchise Austin FC. As well as being five points behind the playoff spots, Vancouver are winless in their last three games, drawing all of them. At the halfway stage of the season, the Whitecaps will certainly need something to change to get them some positive results and points. If they want to climb the conference, then the second half of the season will need to be considerably better than the first.
Despite the fact that this season, LA Galaxy have clearly been the better side overall, it’s actually Vancouver Whitecaps that have the upper hand in terms of previous head to head results. The Whitecaps last win in the league was at home to LA Galaxy, where they came away 2-1 winners. Before that, the two teams have fairly even results in their last five games against one another, with both teams having two wins apiece. Vancouver will travel to LA with some confidence given their last result against their opponents, while Galaxy will be looking to set the record straight and get some form of revenge.
Before we get to our betting tip, we have collected all of the data regarding the previous five head to head results between the two teams. Our experts take all of this into consideration, along with the current league situation of both teams, and have put together the latest tip for Sunday night’s fixture!
