Vancouver Whitecaps betting lines explained
Here are examples of some of the lines you might come across when betting on the Vancouver Whitecaps:
|Vancouver Whitecaps FC||+1.5 (-350)||+155||Over 2.5 (-110)|
|Seattle Sounders FC||-1.5 (+295)||-175||Under 2.5 (-110)|
What this says is that you can place a Whitecaps spread bet at +1.5 (-350) against the Seattle Sounders. You’ll win the bet if Vancouver loses by just a goal or wins by any score. You’ll lose if the Whitecaps lose by two goals or more. Win and you’ll receive $100, plus your bet back, for every $350 that you bet. You can also bet on Seattle at -1.5 (+295). In that case, you’d win $295, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet if the Sounders win by two or more goals. With soccer spread bets like this, you’ll often find varying lines and odds from 0.5 to 2.5.
The second column shows two of the three moneyline options. You can place a moneyline bet on the Whitecaps to win the game outright at +155. You’d win $155, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet if that happens. You can also bet on Seattle at -175 and win $100, plus your bet back, for every $175 you bet. For soccer bets, you may also see three-way moneylines, with the third option to bet on being a draw between the two teams.
Finally, you’ve got the over and under bets with the odds in parentheses. This is where you bet on the combined score in a game landing over or under 2.5 goals. Choose correctly and you’ll win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 that you bet.
Vancouver Whitecaps props and live betting
MLS prop betting lets you dive into various games within the game. This includes bets on Whitecaps’ team and player game stats and accomplishments. However, it’s live Whitecaps betting that can truly enhance your MLS fan experience. Live betting allows you to bet on Vancouver Whitecaps games in the middle of the action.
While it mostly consists of the same bets you might find before the game, the odds change alongside the action on the pitch. Plus, more prop bets are available live. The trick is, the odds change fast, making online betting a must to keep up.

Vancouver Whitecaps history
The Vancouver Whitecaps were a North American Soccer League team in the 1970s and 1980s. In 2009, the name belonged to a USSF Division 2 Professional League team when a local ownership group in Vancouver was granted a Major League Soccer franchise. On June 8, 2010, the group announced it would be adopting the “Whitecaps” name. The coach of the USSF Division 2 Vancouver Whitecaps, Teitur Thordarson, also became the Whitecaps MLS club’s first head coach.
The Whitecaps started play in the 2011 MLS season. The team won its first match against Toronto FC on March 19, 2011.

The team’s best season came in 2015 when it won 16 regular-season games and lost to the Portland Timbers in the two-leg Conference Semifinals. The 2015 Whitecaps also won the Canadian Championship and one game in the CONCACAF Champions League group stage. The team’s current ownership group includes NBA legend Steve Nash.
