thumbnail Hello,

Ben Olsen's side have been in fine form in recent weeks and our tipster is backing the home side to claim another three points when they take on Ryan Nelsen's men in Washington DC

After claiming three successive Major League Soccer victories, DC United will aim to make it four wins from four matches when they tackle Toronto in Washington on Wednesday.

Ben Olsen’s men have been in a rich vein of form and have moved within four points of the top of the Eastern conference and, with DC United having two games in hand over conference leaders Sporting KC, the midweek encounter represents a golden opportunity to pile the pressure on at the top of the table.

DC can be backed at 5/6 (1.83) with Paddy Power to take maximum points from their clash with their Canadian opponents while Ryan Nelsen’s side are chalked up at 11/4 (3.75) to shock the hosts on Wednesday. Paddy Power offer 5/2 (3.50) that the match ends in stalemate.

For those keen to follow the action, the whole match will be streamed live to Paddy Power customers via the website’s TV channel - Paddy Power TV.

Those who do tune in can anticipate an open, entertaining encounter here. Indeed, it is worth noting that both teams have scored in each of DC United’s last four victories while there has been goals at both ends in each of Toronto’s last eight matches.

It is, therefore, somewhat unsurprising that Paddy Power offer just 4/6 (1.67) that both teams find the net in Washington on Wednesday while the same firm go 4/5 (1.80) that three or more goals are scored when these two sides go head-to-head.

DC United boast a solid home record, having lost just two of their 11 Major League Soccer matches on home turf thus far this term while Toronto have claimed full points from just two of their eight matches on the road so far this season.

With Ben Olsen’s side looking to close the gap at the top of the table, it would be no surprise to see the home side come out of the traps quickly and, therefore, the 4/6 (1.67) quote from Paddy Power for DC United to break the deadlock, whilst skinny, looks to be a solid selection.

However, punters are advised to put their faith in the home side here and the generous 5/6 (1.83) quote offered up by Paddy Power for DC United to win is the recommended play for punters ahead of Wednesday’s crunch clash in Washington.
