Toronto FC host Sporting Kansas City at the Rogers Centre in their home opener at 1:30pm EST. William Hill has decent odds for the visitors who are natural favorites.The Reds surprised a lot of people last week by giving a solid showing in their season opener at Vancouver but still predicatbly lost 1-0. In their home opener today they will face an even stiffer test as Sporting Kansas City come to town.
SKC won their opener last week with an impressive 3-1 win away at Philadephia last week and the squad has a knack for starting strong out of the gate as evidenced by their hot seven game win streak to start off the 2012 campaign. The team has finished atop of the Eastern Conference standings in the last two seasons and set a club record for wins and points.
Peter Vermes' men have struggled to peak in the playoffs and this year they have added Designated Player Claudio Bieler to try and help them take the next step.
I like William Hill's offering of 2.25 for the visitors to take full points here considering their quality and also that Toronto FC are going to need quite some time for their very fresh roster to gel which seems to keep adding new players every other day.
The draw result is offered at 3.30 which does offer a bit of value but the fact that this game is being played at a venue that will provid equal footing for both teams and that Sporting beat Toronto in all three matches they played in last year, stick with the visitors here.
However, if your heart overides your wallet then you can take the Reds at 3.20 in the outrights or at 2.25 in the draw no bet both over at William Hill.
The SKC win combined with the over 2.5 are at 3.50. With the excellent offensive prowess that Graham Zusi showed for Sporting last week with 1 goal and 2 assists that could add some decent value today.
