SJ Earthquakes Preview – Can San Jose get back to winning ways and close on the playoff zone?

It was a really fast start for San Jose who won three of their first four games but they have failed to build on that and now find themselves without a win in their last five. Wins over Dallas, DC United and Real Salt Lake had the Earthquakes setting the pace early on but they have managed just one point from a possible 15 since then.

San Jose have also scored just one goal in that run of five games which gives you an indication of where their problems lie and what they are going to have to do to get back to winning ways.


Our betting prediction
Under 2.5 goals
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Thursday 24 June)
Matias Almeyda has been in charge for over two years now, reaching the playoffs last season but narrowly missing out in his first campaign. That is the obvious aim again and despite a poor run of form of late they are just two points outside the top seven in the Western Conference.
As well as struggling in front of goal of late San Jose have conceded the most goals in their Conference. That is in large part to the 5-0 defeat last time out away to Orlando City and it will be interesting to see how they respond in this one.

LA Galaxy Whitecaps Preview – Will Galaxy continue their good start to stay on the heels of the leaders?

Greg Vanney is a MLS Cup winning coach from his time with Toronto and that was the task he was set when appointed head coach of the most successful team in the competition at the beginning of the year. Galaxy have appeared in nine finals and won five of those but the most recent of those was back in 2014 when they won three in four years.

Vanney has had a positive start to life in Los Angeles with six wins from his first nine games. It’s good enough for Galaxy to slot into third place and six points behind Seattle who sit in first.

Whilst LA Galaxy’s home form is very good their ability to pick up points on the road is not quite as consistent but that is the case for most teams in this league. They’ve won two and lost two this season but stretching back further they’ve lost seven of their last nine and if they are to be a real challenger again they need to better that.

There’s no doubting who the star of this Galaxy team is. Javier Hernandez has scored eight goals in nine MLS games and is showing the ability we all knew he had after a slow start to his career in the States.

SJ Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy Betting Advice

These inner-state games always have more rivalry to them and are very competitive. San Jose have equipped themselves well in recent times, particularly at home. They are unbeaten in their last seven and winning six of those.

Galaxy did have the bragging rights when beating the Earthquakes 1-0 at home earlier in the campaign.


Key Facts – SJ Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy Betting Tip

  • San Jose have not won any of their last six having won three of their first four
  • Galaxy have won six of their first nine and slotted nicely into third place
  • The visitors last win here was back in 2017 – six losses and one draw since


Despite the visitors being comfortably above their opponents it’s San Jose who are favourites for this and that’s in large part down to their record at home. They may have lost their last three but were unbeaten in nine before that (winning seven) and taking into account their record against Galaxy it’s worth siding with them here.
