New York City odds: +107 – 48.5%

Draw odds: +260 – 26.0%

Vancouver Whitecaps odds: +250 – 25.5%

With a probability of 49.50, we believe Draw or Vancouver Whitecaps is the way to go this week. New York City are the bookies’ expected winners at +107 (48.5% win probability) ahead of Saturday’s MLS match, but we believe the visitors stand a potent chance of achieving something in New York.

New York City vs Vancouver Whitecaps Lineups & Team News

New York City

There was nothing good about how New York City performed in their previous MLS game. The match against Cincinnati was lost 3-0, and while the visitors were the underdogs ahead of the kick-off, coach Nick Cushing was hopeful that his players might chip a point away from the current leaders in the Eastern Conference’s ranking.

Predicted lineup – Barraza (GK), Risa, Martins, Gray, Perea, Parks, Ilenic, Cufre, Moralez, Fernandez & Bakrar

Vancouver Whitecaps

Coach Vanni Sartini owes his attackers a debt of gratitude, as they pulled Vancouver through the mud at Providence Park last week. The Timbers came close to snatching a point from their guests, but at the end of 90 minutes, the result on the scoreboard showed 2-3 in favor of Sartini’s side, which is surely a plus in favor of our New York City vs Vancouver Whitecaps predictions.

Predicted lineup – Takaoka (GK), Blackmon, Veselinovic, Brown, Cubas, Ahmed, Schopf, Adekugbe, Laryea, Gauld & White

Player to Watch: Ryan Gauld

Vancouver Whitecaps’ #25 has to be nullified if New York City want to get anything out of this game. Ryan was above everyone else in Vancouver’s previous MLS match against Portland Timbers. At Providence Park, Ryan Gauld scored a lovely brace for his manager, which earned him the MOTM award.

Interestingly enough, Ryan Gauld is on penalty duty for Vancouver Whitecaps. He should get plenty of goalscoring opportunities against New York City’s lackluster backline.
