Take a chance on the hosts bagging a rare three points in their Thursday night clash.
Orlando City v Toronto FC - Thursday 00:30, Sky Sports 1
Draw specialists Orlando find themselves down in 7th in the Eastern Conference having only won five games all season, four of which have come at home. They face a Toronto side who are just one point off New York City at the top, with a game in hand.
Of the 28 points that Orlando have picked up this season 19 have come at home, where they’ve only lost once. Despite drawing over half their games these matches have rarely been dull affairs. Of their 24 matches 18 have had at least three goals, while 15 had more than three. Indeed, their 12 games at The Camping World Stadium have averaged 3.42 goals per game and both teams have scored 11 times.
As such, you can expect goals in this one – particularly since Toronto have scored 16 times in their last six games. Four of those were at home though and they’ve won just one of their last seven on the road. This is their third away game in a row after visits to Houston and Philadelphia and the players are undoubtedly going to be feeling the effects, while some will no doubt be thinking more about this weekend’s clash with rivals Montreal.
So we are going to take a chance on the home side turning one point into three and back Orlando winning with both teams finding the net.
