Vancouver are coming off a really nice win on the road, but their recent good form goes to waste. They had a horrible season and are stuck at the depths of the Western Conference standings. They will now look for their season to end with their last match at home, where they will host Real Salt Lake on Sunday. The visitors have already booked a ticket to the post-season but can potentially move up a few spots and secure home advantage.

Spread: Real Salt Lake -0.25
Total: 3 Goals
The Vancouver Whitecaps (8-15-10) exploded in their last match, and scored four away goals against the LA Galaxy. That resulted in a nice 4-3 away win for Vancouver. They are undefeated in their last three (2-0-1). Moreover, they have scored at least once in each of their last nine matches, but they did bad in the first half of the season and are beyond salvation. The Whitecaps have been stuck at the bottom of the Western Conference with 34 points. They have scored 37 goals so far and have conceded 58 in the process. They also have the worst home record in the Conference (5-6-5), winning just two of their last nine home matches in all competitions (2-4-3) but also losing just one of their last four (2-1-1).
On the other hand, Real Salt Lake (15-13-5) took the lead at just the first minute of their home match against Houston. Their opponents pulled even in the first half, but Savarino scored a late goal for the final 1-2 win. Real Salt Lake have not been in very good shape lately with just two wins in their last six matches (2-3-1). They are now sitting at the 5th spot of the Western Conference with 50 points. They are one point behind the Galaxy and three points behind Seattle and Minnesota. Real Salt Lake have not been very strong on the road so far (3-9-4), and quite bad lately, with just one win in their last nine away matches (1-5-3).
The two teams have exchanged home wins for each of the last three seasons, and Real Salt Lake won at home earlier in this season. Vancouver might have had a terrible season but they have been quite competitive lately and have also lost just once here against Real Salt Lake (8-1-1). Moreover, they have won each of the last six, so I expect them to try to finish off with a strong performance. Real Salt Lake will also fight for a win so the Over 3 Goals is also a nice pick here.
