Cincinnati to Win

In search of a first victory over Vancouver Whitecaps, Cincinnati will go all-out against their foe on the 11th of June in an attempt to maintain their already impressive eight-point lead over title challengers Nashville.

Coach Pat Noonan deserves all the praise coming his way over the terrific work he’s done in charge of Cincinnati. He turned the team around and now we see the club topping the table in the Eastern Conference. Surely, if everything goes according to Noonan’s master plan, our Vancouver Whitecaps vs Cincinnati predictions can’t miss. Especially, when you consider the fact that the visitors have lost only one game this season.

BTTS

Sure, this is a rivalry with a growing history as only two matches have ever been played but both of them ended with goals galore. The first-ever match was a 2-1 Vancouver Whitecaps win while the second one was a thrilling 2-2 tie at Cincinnati’s venue.

Will coach Vanni Sartini’s boys put a dent in Cincinnati’s title ambitions? We don’t think so. The head-to-head data is barely tipped in favor of Vancouver. However, the momentum is entirely in the visitors’ favor.

That’s why our key Vancouver Whitecaps vs Cincinnati betting tips are in favor of an evenly-matched game, yes, but one that will probably be won by the visitors with a 1-2 or 1-3 result.

Vancouver Whitecaps odds: +105 – 49.0%

Draw odds: +275 – 25.0%

Cincinnati odds: +240 – 26.0%

As you can see for yourselves in the Vancouver Whitecaps vs Cincinnati odds above, it’s the visitors who are less likely to win this Major League Soccer clash. Coach Pat Noonan’s boys have barely a 26.0% win probability ahead of Sunday’s clash while Vancouver Whitecaps are the expected winners with a whopping 49.0% likelihood of scooping the three points at +105 which is definitely impressive, considering the fact that the visitors are at the top of the table.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Cincinnati Lineups & Team News

Vancouver Whitecaps

One thing is certain – Vanni Sartini’s players will go down swinging. The team is currently sitting comfortably in 7th place in the Western Conference with 20 points accumulated throughout five victories, five draws, and six losses. Sure, it’s a rather mediocre display by the northerners but we’re sure the best is yet to come.

Predicted lineup – Takaoka (GK), Martins, Veselinovic, Blackmon, Brown, Cubas, Gressel, Schopf, Gauld, Vite & White

Cincinnati

As stated in this Vancouver Whitecaps vs Cincinnati prediction, Pat Noonan’s players have lost only one game in the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign. Only one loss in 16 matches in MLS! Now, that’s an accomplishment and a half in our book. We have seldomly seen a display as convincing as this one in the first four months of a season in MLS and we can safely say Cincinnati are going to be up there with the title contenders at the end of the race.

Predicted lineup – Celentano (GK), Mosquera, Hagglund, Miazga, Barreal, Nwobodo, Angulo, Gaddis, Acosta, Vazquez & Badji

Player to Watch: Luciano Acosta

Coach Pat Noonan deserves respect for what he’s done with Cincinnati, yes, but he also owes a debt of gratitude to his playmaker-in-chief. Much-admired Acosta has been busting his hump this season, and as a result, he has seven goals and two assists to his name to show for it.

We believe that our Vancouver Whitecaps vs Cincinnati predictions are as safe as long as attacking midfielder Acosta gets the rightfully-earned minutes to do his thing. Whenever coach Pat Noonan needed a difference-maker this season, Luciano Acosta was there to deliver. Should Noonan opt to bench Luciano Acosta, we’d have no other option but to consider this move an aberration.
