Chivas USA - Toronto Betting Preview: Why siding with the hosts could be a profitable move

With both sides sitting at the bottom end of their conferences, our tipster is backing the home side to finally kick start their season
Ryan Nelson takes his Toronto side south in the early hours of tomorrow morning to face a Chivas USA team in desperate need of a victory.

Joe Luis Real’s men sit in last place in the Western Conference, 10 points behind San Jose Earthquakes who sit one position above them.

Nelson’s men aren’t sitting too pretty either, despite not being rock bottom of the Eastern Conference, they sit in ninth position, eight points being Chicago Fire above them. Both sides have struggled this season, winning a combined five matches from 37 games.

Chivas come into this match unable to hold onto a lead in recent weeks. The Red and Whites led away to Philadelphia Union before a late show from the home side saw Chivas lose 3-1.

Real’s men were showing signs of improvement before that match, recording three straight draws. BetVictor price them as slight favourites at 31/20 (2.55) to take a much needed three points.

Toronto have been in woeful form of late, winning only one match in their last 12. Despite Ryan Nelson being appointed head coach at the start of the year, the former Blackburn and QPR man has not been able to find the results.

The Reds have particulary struggled away from home, losing seven of their last 10 away matches. BetVictor price them at 19/10 (2.90) to win the match. The same firm prices the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

Although the results haven’t been coming for Chivas, they have showed in recent weeks an improvement, losing narrowly to some of the top sides in the MLS. Luis Real’s men were 2 minutes away from winning their last home game against New England, but conceded a last minute equaliser to deny them the three points.

Chivas USA draw no bet at 4/5 (1.80) looks like a fantastic price with BetVictor, a bet that would have paid out against Toronto away from home in seven of their last 10 matches.
