      Tip Reasoning

      Toronto FC had a go at getting out of their rut of form on Thursday when they played Orlando City.

      They beat them 4-1 thanks to an excellent performance from ex Juventus striker Sebastian Giovinco, who opened the scoring inside of 15 minutes and closed the scoring in the 88th minute.

      This brought an end to their 3 match winless run, but they will want to get another win to get them well and truly out of their rut. They have won only 2 of their last 8 matches, losing 3 and drawing 3.

      This leaves them in 5th place in the MLS Eastern Conference having played 20 league games. They do have games in hand on 3 of the 4 teams above them in the league, but Montreal Impact are breathing down their necks, only 1 point behind them and with a game in hand.

      A win could send them as high as 3rd position in the league though, as Columbus Crew and New England Revolution are both 3 points ahead of them. They can be fairly confident of overtaking them at some point though, since they have 3 and 4 games in hand on them respectively.

      Sporting Kansas ply their trade in the MLS Western Conference, and are also near the middle of the table sitting in 4th position after 20 games played.

      Only 5 points separated them from top of the table Vancouver, and they have at least 2 games in hand on all 3 of the teams above them.

      They have games in hand on the teams below them as well, with Portland and Seattle sitting 1 and 2 points behind them respectively but with Sporting Kansas having 3 games in hand over them.

      This puts them in an excellent position to take the top spot once they catch up on games, but they will have to remedy the fact that they haven’t won either of their last 2 games.

      They drew against Houston Dynamo last week, and lost to Real Salt Lake the week before. Before that, they had enjoyed a 5 match winning streak in all competitions.

      Both teams have been involved in a high proportion of high scoring games recently, and for that reason I think that odds of 4/5 for Over 2.5 goals are excellent value.
