Market: Toronto FC win

Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport

Hoping to extend on what has become a much-needed boost this weekend, Toronto will welcome away day strugglers Chicago Fire to BMO Field on Sunday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Toronto might know that they would need a real miracle if they were to somehow secure a Final Series spot, the Reds are enjoying an eye-catching purple patch. Managing to find a route off of the foot of the Eastern Conference table, Head Coach Javier Pérez saw his side put in another eye-catching display earlier in the week. Landing themselves what was an action-packed 3-2 victory at home against Cincinnati, the former MLS champions are now enjoying a four-match unbeaten run across all formats. Knowing that they could have a golden chance to extend on their recent flurry this weekend, Toronto will also be boosted by their continued success at BMO Field. Including an impressive 2-1 win against Nashville on September 19th, Sunday’s hosts have won each of their last three home fixtures on the spin.

As for the visitors, while Chicago might not have been at their best once again in midweek, there is no doubt that they would be boosted by a hard-fought 2-0 win. Desperate to prove that their performance on Thursday wasn’t simply a one-off, the Fire have largely struggled with their form over the past six weeks. With just a pair of MLS victories to their name from any of their last nine attempts, a run that stems back to the middle of August, Chicago have also gained a reputation for their issues on the road. Including three away defeats on the spin, it should also be noted that Sunday’s guests have remarkably recorded just a single win away from Soldier Field so far this season. Suffering a 2-1 defeat last time they faced off against Toronto, we’re backing a similar home victory here.
