Pick based on Asian handicap. Not familiar with handicaps? Read our Asian handicap betting guide
FC Dallas is the favourite to win this match as they are the best team in the group with 34 points in 19 matches played (1st). Also, they are playing very good level of football as they are coming to this match after winning 3 matches in a row in the league. At home, they were able to win 6 matches out of 10 played losing only 1 time. They have scored 21 goals conceding 10. As I said before, FC Dallas are in a very good moment of form: they won last match 1-2 against Montreal coming back after trailing 1-0. Also, they had to comeback against DC United (they won 4-2). Before these two great comebacks, they won against one of the most dangerous teams in MLS, Toronto FC 3-1. At home, they won last 4 matches played against DC United (4-2), Toronto FC (3-1), Colorado Rapids (3-1), Real Salt Lake (6-2). They had some defensive problems as they have conceded in all of the last 4 home matches but their offense was just on fire.
Vancouver Whitecaps, on the other hand, are ranked 6th. They have 27 points after 19 matches played. They are having problems especially when playing on the road as they won only 3 matches out of 9 played. Also, they won only 1 of the last 5 matches played away from home. In fact, before winning against Los Angeles Galaxy 0-1, they lost 4-0 against Chicago Fire, drew 2-2 against Minnesota, lost 4-2 against Montreal Impact and 2-1 against Houston Dynamo. As you can see, they are defending very bad and this will be a big problem against the 3rd best attack in MLS.
Since 6 October 2011, FC Dallas always won against Vancouver Whitecaps playing at home (8 matches played) winning 5 of these games with 2 goals of difference. The home side is the better team...the home advantage will help FC Dallas to continue their good run and to win this match with good margin imo. I will bet on asian handicap -1.
