Toronto FC vs New York City FC Preview

Toronto have played just two games at home so far this season which makes assessing their progress there a little tricky, especially since one was a 1-0 win and other a 4-3 defeat. What we can say is that New York have won three out of five on the road and should approach this game with some confidence. The bookies have the home team as strong favourites however and who are we to argue with a bookmaker?

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Toronto (home) LWLLW 2.00 2.00
Derby (away)  WWLLW 2.00 1.80

 

Picks?

There should be some goals in this match if the stats are anything to go by so midfielders and strikers from both sides are our likely picks; avoid defenders though.

New York Red Bulls vs Chicago Fire Preview

This looks like a more straight-forward match as the home team are unbeaten at home and taking on bottom-of-the-league Chicago Fire. A closer look reveals that New York have won three times in five games at home, losing none. This will be a chance to continue record against a Chicago team who are yet to win on the road and who manage just 0.50 goals on average.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
New York (home) WWLWL 2.20 1.80
Bournemouth (away)  LWLWD 1.17 1.67

 

Picks?

This looks like a homer and a clean sheet to boot so go for NY players from all positions; avoid Chicago players unless absolutely necessary.
