FC Dallas Clear Online MLS Betting Favorite Over Vancouver
Posted by: Charlie Smith
The online MLS betting will take off once again this weekend. Let’s glaze over this week’s results before we take a look at this weekend’s action.
Wednesday’s Online MLS Betting Recap
Wednesday’s MLS sportsbook action featured the Philadelphia Union taking on the Columbus Crew in Pennsylvania. The odds had a hard time picking a decisive favorite, but the Union was slightly favored over the Crew. The results were much more one sided than the odds predicted.
Four days before Wednesday’s match, the Union had fallen to the Crew on the road. However, it didn’t take long for Philadelphia to get their sweet revenge as they delivered a defiant 3-0 performance over Columbus Wednesday.
Agitations ran high for Crew SC considering they finished the match with 9 men on the pitch. Ilsinho delivered the first goal of the night in the 20th minute, and 15 minutes later Jonathan Mensah got a straight red, becoming the first player to be dismissed.
CJ Sapong scored the second goal of the night in 66th minute. Afterwards, in the 76th, Columbus lost their second player of the night – Lalas Abubakar, sending their online MLS betting chances of winning down the drain.
Marcus Epps would the third and final player to score, delivering his goal in the 81st minute.
The league will now enjoy a brief hiatus before the action kicks off again this weekend. There will be a total of 10 matchups for players who bet on soccer to choose from. The action will kick off at 4:30 pm ET when the Atlanta United face Orlando City.
Some noteworthy matchups include Sporting KC facing Chicago, the LA Galaxy facing the Seattle Sounders, and the Minnesota United squaring off against DC United. However, even amidst these eye-catching contests, fans will want to pay special attention to the matchup between FC Dallas and the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Let’s take a look at what the online MLS betting odds are predicting for this pairing.
FC Dallas vs. Vancouver Whitecaps – Saturday, July 29th
When: 8:00 pm ET
Where: Toyota Stadium, Frisco, Texas
TV: Local Broadcasts, TSN
Stream: MLS Live
Online MLS Betting Odds:
FC Dallas -218
Vancouver Whitecaps +452
FC Dallas/Vancouver Whitecaps Draw +295
Dallas comes into this game with their head held high, thanks to their 9-7-3 record that ranks them as the best club in the Western Conference. Not by much however, considering that Sporting KC is right on Dallas’ heels. Dallas earns the top spot thanks to their 34 points on the season, and Sporting is close behind with 33.
Vancouver hasn’t enjoyed as much success as FC Dallas has this season. The Whitecaps are currently sitting on a 8-3-8 record that nets the club 27 points on the year. That tally ranks the franchise 6th in the Western Conference, 3 points behind 5th place Seattle and a meager 1 point ahead of 7th place San Jose. Accounting for the current rankings in the conference, it makes perfect sense for the odds to favor Dallas over Vancouver.
