Quick Pick: Toronto FC -103 for 4 Units
In a battle of “Good” vs. “Bad”, the Toronto FC will take on the DC United Saturday night from RFK Stadium in Washington DC. Toronto is playing really good right now and DC United…well, let’s just say they are playing NOT so good right now.
DC United owns the all time record against Toronto FC at 13-10-4. They also hold a slight advantage at home with a 5-4-3 lead in DC. That being said, Toronto has only lost 1 time in the last 6 games against DC United.
DC United At Home But Does It Matter???
DC United comes into this game with a record of 5-14-3, 18 points. They are the only team in the MLS that are averaging less than a point per match. DC United have lost 6 games straight, after taking another loss to Minnesota last Saturday night. If you are taking into consideration the US Open Cup, that number rises to a 7 game losing streak. DC United have lost half of their home games this year and are truly a struggling team.
A playoff spot for DC United is now an afterthought as they are 14 points off the final spot in the Eastern Conference. They have only scored 18 points in their last 22 league games.
Toronto FC Top Team In Eastern Conference
Toronto has not lost in four games and now sit in first place in the Eastern Conference. Toronto has scored the most goals in the MLS this year and has allowed the 2nd least amount of goals.
Sebastian Giovinco was named the MLS Player of the Week for the second time this year on Wednesday. He scored a pair of goals in Toronto’s last game, making that 50 goals in his MLS Career. Justin Morrow, Oyvind Alseth and Steven Beitashour are all injured and should be rested, missing the Saturday night matchup with DC United.
Don’t Get Cute, Play Toronto FC!
Listen, DC United is a team in shambles right now. There really isn’t anything that I can see that is going there way or in their favor in this game. Toronto has a better defense, Toronto will score more goals and Toronto’s game style is tough for DC United to play against with the players they have on roster.
Pick: Toronto FC -103 for 4 Units
