Odds for Vancouver are too high in my opinion. San Jose are probably the worst team in MLS, except Wondolowski and Bobby Convey hard to spot even one good player in their squad, results start to show it with 3 losses in row (preceeded by home draws vs Seattle and poorish Toronto). The offensive power of San Jose was further decreased by the injury of their English signing Simon Dawkins who scored 2 from total 6 goals so far, missing in the next couple of months.
I continue to believe that Vancouver are not so bad team, although they disappointed me in the pick against Dallas wasting 1-0 lead at halftime and keep in the bottom half of the standing. Whitecaps were tuned with good overseas players as Hassli, Chiumiento, Rochat, Camilo... Jay DeMerit who missed the last month for injury is finally recovered, probably he won't start from the beginning but available to help if it is needed. Atiba Harris remains the only notable missing (also since a month, important one but coach Thordarson must be happy to have all other players at disposal). After thumping Toronto 4-2 in the opening round Whitecaps haven't won any game (including 4 at home) but played decent football in Vancouver and either just bad luck or stupidity left them so long failing to get the 3 points. In the last round made 0-0 in the visit to Chicago (first away points for the season) that can boost their morale.
Comparing both teams Vancouver have much bigger potential in attack, having limited options upfront San Jose rely more on their defense and won't give up easily but I think in 90 minutes hosts will find a way to take the edge in this one.
