The Reds started the new campaign with a 2-2 draw on the road at the San Jose Earthquakes last weekend and got our MLS betting tips off to a great start.
A penalty from Alejandro Pozuelo and a goal from Richie Laryea either side of half-time had put Toronto 2-0 up, but San Jose rallied and equalised deep into stoppage time.
New York’s season opener resulted in a 1-0 loss on the road at Columbus Crew.
It certainly didn’t help their cause that NYCFC played with 10 men for 87 minutes, after defender Maxime Chanot was given a red card after just three minutes of the start of the game.
Previous Meetings & Form
These teams last met back in October last year in the Eastern Conference Playoffs Semi-finals, when Pozuelo scored two goals to give Toronto a 2-1 win on the road at the Eastern Conference winners.
Last season Toronto won nine and drew four of their 17 home games in finishing fourth in the Eastern Conference.
NYCFC won seven and drew five on their travels throughout the regular season last year. One of their five losses on the road last season came in a 4-0 rout at the hands of Toronto, with Pozuelo again scoring twice for the Reds.
