More of the same for earthquakes in this one.
Vancouver also keeps it familiar from modern games.
San Jose Earthquakes will aim to continue climbing in the Western Conference when it faces Vancouver and Whitecaps on the road Saturday night. No, the earthquakes won’t go to Vancouver, they’ll play in Providence Park in Portland, the temporary home of Whitecaps while travel remains restricted to Canada for US teams during the coronavirus pandemic.
This is the story of two upcoming data points for San Jose. On the other hand, the Quakes team has set a record 2-0 against Whitecaps so far this season, one win in Orlando and one at home. The track record has been good so far, but each game is slightly different.
And that brings us to another data point: The Earthquakes never won a regular season match at Providence Park. Is this more because of Portland Timbers, or the location? Well, here’s a chance to test the hypothesis to find out!
San Jose have scored in five of their last six matches, while White Cubs have won two of their last three games. However, their last game was a 1–0 loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy in the last minute. They weren’t lucky to get a point, honestly, at that point.
Will San Jose continue to get points on Whitecaps, or will Vancouver start piling it up for the last laugh of the regular season? We’ll see what happens in Portland.
According to DraftKings SportsbookAs of Friday evening, San Jose (+108) while Vancouver (+210). The tie odds are (+280), so the bookmaker gives Earthquakes a slight edge, which is a bit surprising given their history in Providence Park, although I don’t think Whitecaps should be a favorite either.
Saturday’s match between COEX and Whitecaps will be broadcast locally on NBC Sports Network in California, and in the rest of the United States on Sunday. ESPN +. The broadcast is due to begin at 7 PM PDT as the match kicks off.
