Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 4/6

Reason For New York City vs Toronto FC Betting Tips

On Saturday New York City claimed all three points at home to New England courtesy of a 2-1 final scoreline, to make it five wins on the run in the league, while Toronto extended their unbeaten streak to seven games when they thrashed Cincinnati 5-1 last time out.

All of the stats suggest we have an exciting game on our hands between these two clubs where we are expecting to see both teams score and over 2.5 goals and make a draw the most likely result.

Recent encounters between these two sides have produced plenty of goals and provide us with plenty of evidence and reasoning to back both teams to score and over 2.5 goals and a final scoreline of 2-2. Both teams have scored in three of the last five meetings between these two clubs and over 2.5 goals have been produced in the pairs’ last six encounters. The head to head record between these two sides is level and 33.3% of the meetings between these two teams have ended in draws and the last stalemate between the pair finished 2-2 back in 2017.

Both teams are in good form and should prove very difficult to beat, with New York City unbeaten in their last five matches and Toronto enjoying a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions, which just adds weight to our prediction of a draw between the pair on Thursday. Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in five of New York City’s last six matches, while both teams scored in five of Toronto’s last six matches and over 2.5 goals were produced in four of their last five matches, so goals are expected from both teams on Thursday.

New York City have the home advantage and haven’t lost at home in their last five games at Yankee Stadium but Toronto haven’t lost any of their last four away games in all competitions, which is another reason we have gone with a goals-filled draw between the pair on Thursday.

We’re confident that both teams will score and over 2.5 goals will be produced on Thursday and have predicted a final scoreline of 2-2. Both teams are playing really well right now so confidence is bound to be high in both camps. The head to head record between these two sides is level after twelve meetings and a third of their encounters have ended in draws. Toronto have drawn two of their last three away games and we’re expecting another stalemate to be produced on Thursday as well.
