Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi will be looking to inspire Toronto FC again when they host Los Angeles Galaxy.
The Italians have starred for Bob Bradley’s side since their arrival in July, helping turn the Canadian outfit’s form around after a dismal run.
The pair are expected to be inspirational again and a home win at 1.85 is our first Toronto FC vs Los Angeles Galaxy prediction.
Toronto FC Odds
The signings of Insigne and Bernardeschi have certainly improved Toronto, who had lost four in five before their debuts.
Toronto have since taken 14 points from a possible 21, picking up two wins over Charlotte as well as victories against Nashville and Portland Timbers, to move up to 10th in the Eastern Conference.
That form has seen them boost their play-off hopes, leaving them three points behind seventh-placed Columbus Crew.
Insigne has scored four times during that run and Bernardeschi five, with the duo both on target during the 2-0 success at Charlotte on Sunday.
With just two wins away, which have actually come in their last three outings, Toronto have needed to be strong at BMO Field this season.
They have won seven, drawn two and lost five and are currently on a four-match unbeaten run, having beaten Charlotte 4-0 and Portland 3-1 and drawn with San Jose Earthquakes and New England Revolution.
All four of those games have provided four goals while LA Galaxy have netted 10 in their last three fixtures.
Over 3.5 goals is Toronto FC vs Los Angeles Galaxy odds.
Los Angeles Galaxy Odds
The Galaxy have also picked up their form following a run of five defeats in six outings.
They are unbeaten in three, beating Vancouver Whitecaps 5-2 and New England 2-1 either side of a 3-3 draw at home to Seattle.
They had a fast start against the Revolution, surging 2-0 ahead in the opening 15 minutes following goals from Daniel Aguirre and Javier Hernandez before holding off a late fightback.
That win ended a four-match losing streak on the road, after defeats at Sporting Kansas City, Dallas, Colorado Rapids and Los Angeles FC.
The Galaxy conceded a half-time lead in each of those losses while Toronto have gone into the break in front in their previous two home wins.
The hosts to be leading at half-time and full-time is 2.95 in the Toronto FC vs Los Angeles Galaxy betting tips.
