Wednesday, April 8
Currently the best MLS player Octavio Rivero, scored his fourth goal in the opening five games of the season – leading the MLS Golden Boot standings – as Whitecaps FC won an MLS club-record fourth consecutive game in their 2-0 win against the LA Galaxy on Saturday evening at BC Place. Plus keep in mind that Whitecaps dominated that game, and score 3-0 or 4-0 was possible at anytime during the game.
The Crew are extremely hungry for points, they return to action after a weekend off, falling for the second time in three games in their last match, a 2-1 home defeat to the New York Red Bulls.
Crew SC have not defeated Whitecaps FC since the 2011 season – Vancouver’s first year in MLS. The ‘Caps have won the lone meeting between the teams each of the last three years, including a 1-0 victory in Columbus last May 10.
Whitecaps FC have won the only meeting between the teams at BC Place, a 2-1 victory in 2013. Crew SC have won once in Vancouver – a 1-0 victory in 2011, at Empire Field.

The Whitecaps are hot, and despite lineup rotation due to midweek game, they are still strong favorite to win this match. The Crew will play without their suspended leader and the best player Federico Higuain, who was sent off in last game vs Red Bulls.
In terms of over / under markets, as you know I don’t like overs on midweek games, however Whitecaps creating so many chances, that they are capable to score 3 goals in no time, so I wont go under with them in Vancouver.
