Welcome back! Looking for the latest MLS betting tips? That’s why you’re here, right? Well, our soccer experts have been on hand to provide you with all of the information and details about some of the most exciting games in the MLS across the 2021 season. 

An Eastern Conference Battle

This weekend sees Eastern conference leaders NYCFC host Toronto FC - who have yet to win in their first three games. The upcoming fixture will massively affect both ends of the conference, especially as we’re still early in the season. Will New York City extend the gap at the top of the table? Will this be the start of a Toronto turnaround?

New York City FC

After a shaky start to the season, losing 2-1 away to DC United, New York City now find themselves leading the Eastern Conference, level on points with New England Revolution. Following the opening weekend, NYCFC made a statement in their first home game of the season, thrashing FC Cincinnati 5-0. Then, a 2-0 away win against Philadelphia Union and a 1-1 stalemate with Orlando City has put NYCFC on top in the early stages of the season. Valentin Castellanos has scored in all four games in the league so far, and will definitely be looking to extend his impressive run of form in the next game – where NYCFC are considered heavy favourites.

Toronto FC

In contrast to their weekend opponents, Toronto have had a disappointing start to the league, winless in their first three games. An opening day 4-2 loss on the road to Candian rivals CF Montreal was not what Toronto had hoped for. Neither was the 2-2 draw that followed, at home to Vancouver Whitecaps. Another disappointing loss away from home against New York Red Bulls in their latest match has resulted in Chris Armas’ men without a win in the league. Now, Toronto faces arguably their toughest matchup yet, going toe-to-toe with NYCFC in New York.

Head to Head

With the two teams’ completely contrasting starts to the season, it’s no surprise that New York City FC are favourites heading into the tie. However, when looking at the last five head to head results between the two, we found that it’s in fact Toronto that edge the results, winning three of the last five games against NYCFC. There have been some close contests between the two, with one goal in it in some cases. However, with the current form of the teams, it’s difficult to see the trend of Toronto coming out on top rather unlikely.

Statistical Highlights

Below, you’ll find all of the specifics regarding the last five games between NYCFC & Toronto, as well as both teams’ current form. From this, we have gathered all of the information to put together our latest soccer betting tip for the match on Saturday afternoon.

Our Betting Tip for Today

After analysing all of the information heading into the weekend’s fixture, our betting tip is that NYCFC will lead at half time and full time, as well as over 2 goals for both teams combined.

NYCFC To Dominate 90 Minutes

In the early stages of the season, we’ve seen NYCFC net early in most of their games, showing that they’re likely to attack from the first whistle. As well as forward Castellanos, New York City have a number of goalscorers in their setup, including Jesus Medina, who’s managed to find himself on the scoresheet three times in the side’s first four league games. This is why we’re expecting goals, especially for the home side. Also, we’re not expecting Toronto to just roll over, as they will also be battling to turn their season around and get their first three points of the season.

Using bet365’s ‘parlay builder’ feature, you can find our betting tip of NYCFC to lead at half time and full time, and over 2 goals for both teams combined at odds of +220.
