Vancouver Whitecaps (LLWDW)
Vancouver Whitecaps have lost 2 matches in a row and are without a point in the new season. They lost 2-1 to Real Salt Lake on opening day of the season and went on to lose by the same scoreline against San Jose Earthquakes in their last game.
In their pre-season matches, they recorded 2 wins and 2 draws in all 4 matches, which is a good record but they have failed to translate that form into the new season.
Against Real Salt Lake, Vancouver Whitecaps was first to open scoring in the 24th minute, through a Javain Brown strike. But the visitors came back strong in the second half, scoring a double in the 70th and 73rd minute. Vancouver Whitecaps had 55%, 7 shots on target and 10 corners. And against San Jose Earthquakes it was a similar affair. Vancouver Whitecaps opened the scoring again in the 17th minute. But they couldn't protect the lead as they fell behind after conceding 2 goals in the 68th and 77th minute. But this time, they had 40% possession, 2 shots on target and 6 corner kicks.

Expert Betting Tips
Vancouver Whitecaps have a very sound record against Dallas at home. Vancouver Whitecaps might not have the results going for them but they are expected to return to form as the season progresses. Dallas have done a good job in their last match but I don't see them as a formidable team. I think the Vancouver Whitecaps have the advantage against Dallas who are yet to prove their latest win is a demonstration of their form.
