New York Red Bulls vs Vancouver Whitecaps Match Preview
New York Red Bulls did precisely what we predicted when they won 1-0 at home to Atlanta United on Sunday, but there could be some value in taking them on against Vancouver.
Our recommended correct score bet came up at odds of 9/1 as the Red Bulls made it four victories out of five, ending a sequence of five consecutive triumphs for the MLS champions.
Unsurprisingly, the team from the Big Apple are red-hot favourites this time having been 29/20 to beat Atlanta – and we would much rather have the other two options on our side now at long odds-against.
Vancouver Whitecaps are admittedly not in as good form as Atlanta or the Red Bulls, but they have lost only one of their last four games on the road.
The key for the Whitecaps is keeping things tight defensively and, as the stats above outline, most of their matches this season have been low-scoring.
A 1-1 draw away to Sporting Kansas City at the weekend, gained via a last-gasp equaliser, will have put the Canadian side in good heart and they are backed to thwart the Red Bulls from making it a fifth win in six.
