Toronto-New York Red Bulls Betting Preview: Expect the away side to heap more misery on the Canadians

There's Eastern Conference action this weekend in the MLS, as Thierry Henry & Co. travel north with top spot in mind, our tipster is backing the Red Bulls to get three points
Second take on ninth in the Eastern Conference of the MLS on Saturday and both sides have it all to play for.

Toronto have it all to do if they are to avoid finishing bottom of the Eastern Conference, with the gap to DC United, who sit bottom, only three points. At the opposite end of the table sit New York Red Bulls, who trail leaders Sporting KC by two points, and with the Red Bulls playing six hours before their rivals, they have a chance to top the conference for a short period at least with victory.

The Red Bulls, despite sitting in second position, come into this game in some inconsistent form. Mike Petke’s men went on a fantastic run towards the end of April to the end of May, remaining unbeaten in eight, winning six of those games.

Since then, it hasn’t been all plain sailing in the league, losing three of their last five matches. BetVictor price them as favourites for this clash at 11/8 (2.38).

Toronto have been in woeful form too during the last few months. The Reds have only one victory in the MLS in their last 17 games, racking up a total of only 13 points in 19 fixtures.

Ryan Nelson has struggled since taking over at the helm at the start of the year and Saturday’s fixture won’t be easy for his side. BetVictor price them at 21/10 (3.10) to take a much needed three points. The same firm has the draw at 12/5 (3.40).

A fantastic bet in this match is "No" in the Both Teams To Score market at a generous 11/10 (2.10) with BetVictor. When you consider that this bet would have landed in New York Red Bulls last four league matches, as well as four out of the last five league matches for Toronto, it’s unmissable.

For those looking for more value, backing the Red Bulls outright at 11/8 (2.38) is certainly worth investing in. Toronto are on a terrible run of form, losing eight of their last 12 matches, and with New York recording two impressive victories of late against Montreal Impact and Houston Dynamos, this bet is tough to ignore.
