Currently fourth in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference, Minnesota are flying high in their bid to challenge for MLS Cup glory.
With 10 wins, four draws and seven defeats so far this season, Minnesota have been consistent for most of 2019 and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the hosts claim three points in this fixture.
Unibet are offering 4/11 for Minnesota to emerge victorious in this clash and most punters will fancy the hosts to outwit their opponents.
Minnesota have been excellent this year and they have been in decent form in recent weeks, you won’t find many Major League Soccer fans backing against the home side in this contest.
At the other end of the spectrum, you have the Vancouver Whitecaps. The Canadian outfit are now rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference table after winning just four of their 23 Major League Soccer matches this season.
And with just one road victory so far in 2019, all of the omens point towards a Minnesota triumph. This one could get ugly for the visitors if Minnesota start well…
From a Canadian perspective, fans will be hoping that Vancouver can get back to winning ways here but their playoff aspirations have already been dashed.
With that in mind, the Whitecaps should start to prepare for the 2020 Major League Soccer campaign but that added freedom could spur Vancouver on. Soccer is a funny old game at times!

Minnesota Could Spring MLS Cup Shock
On paper, Minnesota tick all the right boxes to push for Major League Soccer glory. United have been building momentum slowly throughout the campaign and they have started to hit form at the right time.
Peaking too soon could prove detrimental come the playoffs but Minnesota are looking very strong indeed ahead of the business end of the season.
Punters will fancy Minnesota to run riot here and the 11/10 for over 2.5 home goals is well worth considering.
This has all the makings of a straightforward triumph and Vancouver are prone to collapsing, particularly on the road. Watch this space, we could see Minnesota put the Canadian side to the sword if they perform anywhere near their brilliant best.
Whitecaps Should Give Up On 2019 Season
It has been another miserable campaign for Vancouver. With a renewed reputation as one of Major League Soccer’s most inconsistent teams, the Whitecaps have failed to build any sort of momentum this season and most will be expecting another heavy road defeat for the
Canadian team. The 21/10 with Betway for Vancouver to avoid defeat is worth considering for any optimists out there…
Vancouver have some solid form in the book but it is difficult to back the Whitecaps at this moment in time.
Who knows what the future holds for the team but Vancouver are in a bad place right now and the Whitecaps need major changes to shift direction. Building for the future should be of paramount importance for the Canadian organisation now.
Looking past Minnesota would be foolish to say the least. This has all the makings of an easy win for the hosts and you won’t find many punters arguing against that.
Vancouver are just too inconsistent and confidence is at an all-time low after a poor run of road form. With the Whitecaps away from home again, Minnesota can take full advantage.
11/10 for three or more home goals is the bet of the weekend. MLS fans should snap this up ahead of what could be a Minnesota demolition job.
TIP: Over 2.5 Minnesota United goals (11/10 with 888sport)
