They qualified for the playoffs after finishing fifth in the Western Conference. The Whitecaps made it to the conference semifinals in 2015. It was a major milestone for the team and expectations among fans are only increasing. Since that season, however, the Whitecaps have played disappointly. They finished on the outside of the playoff picture in 2016.

How To Make Money Betting On The Vancouver Whitecaps
The Vancouver Whitecaps had all sorts of difficulties at home in the 2016 season, winning only six of 17 games. That was the second worst home record in the Western Conference. Only Houston, with five wins, won fewer home games.
It was also the second worst home record in the MLS and it is the biggest concern for the team going forward. In a league where home teams usually perform very well, Vancouver was a glaring exception to the rule. They weren’t particularly brilliant on the road, either. They won four of 17 away fixtures and will also need to improve that facet of their game if they are to qualify for the postseason. Vancouver finished in ninth place, seven points adrift of a playoff spot.
The Whitecaps were also poor defensively, allowing the second most goals in the conference. Vancouver had to pick the ball out of their net 52 times in 34 games. Only Portland, who allowed 53 goals, conceded more than the Whitecaps.
Look to back the over in most Vancouver games until they sort out their defensive woes. They don’t have too much trouble scoring goals so the over is the obvious choice.
