Soccer Betting Online Odds:
The Whitecaps enter this Friday’s action with a less than stellar 4-5-6 record. That record happens to net Vancouver 17-points on the season which ranks them 9th overall in the Western Conference currently. At the present time, the conference is heralded by LAFC and their 34-points on the year. Seeing as how they have twice as many points as Vancouver, things aren’t looking that bright for Vancouver. Nevertheless, the club still has a shot at the postseason. In fact, Vancouver can jump up a couple spots in the conference ladder with a win this Saturday. And since they’re facing the struggling Toronto FC this Friday, it seems more than likely that they should get this win. However, Vancouver does have a -3 goal differential on the season. Since Toronto is +1 on the year, they win this department.
Players to Watch: Fredy Montero (14 GP, 4 G, 2 A), Lucas Venuto (14 GP, 2 G, 0 A), and Doneil Henry (13 GP, 2 G, 1 A).
Following their recent string of losses, Toronto FC enter this Friday’s matchup sporting a 5-2-6 record on the season. That record nets them 17-points on the season, which ranks them 8th overall in the Eastern Conference. At the present time, DC United leads the conference with 26-points. With this in mind, it’s clear that Toronto isn’t faring all that terribly in the East. However, seeing as how they’ve failed to win any of their last 6 games, it’s clear a rebound in needed. The odds, surprisingly enough, have no idea what to expect out of this Friday’s matchup. In the end, this could play in Toronto FC’s favor.
Players to Watch: Alejandro Pozuelo (10 GP, 5 G, 6 A), Jozy Altidore (8 GP, 5 G, 3 A), and Jonathan Osorio (12 GP, 3 G, 4 A).
