San Jose Earthquakes vs Toronto FC, 29 February 2020, Saturday
Major League Soccer, Kick-Off at 22:30 UK
Venue: Earthquakes Stadium.
After losing the MLS finals to Seattle Sounders last year, Toronto FC are looking determined to go one step further this season. The most popular team from Canada is starting the new campaign on Saturday night with an away day to San Jose Earthquakes.
Hosts have decided to play only two pre-season games, which is the lowest number among all MLS teams. Interestingly, bookies are favouring San Jose to take all three points in the clash against Toronto FC at 2.00 odds.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Toronto FC Head-to-head
These two teams have met 16 times in the past, and Earthquakes have minimal 6-5 lead in terms of victories. The average number of goals scored in all those matches is at 2.75 per duel.
There was only one h2h last season, played in Canada. San Jose have won it 2-1 thanks to the two goals scored by Chris Wondolowski. Both assists came from Cristian Espinoza. These two players are still members of Quakes.
Six out of the last seven meetings between these teams ended either Over 2.5 FT or BTTS.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Toronto FC Prediction
San Jose didn’t play a serious role in the previous MLS campaign. Judging by the 34.00 outright odds to win the league odds, that is not going to change much this season. They were always very serious when it comes to home matches though, having won 10 out of 17 duels at this stadium.
The only two pre-season games saw them lose to Columbus and beat Reno.
Toronto FC have kept only one clean sheet during the preparations, while the attacking line is playing on high standards. The attack will once again be led by Jozy Altidore who scored 12 goals in the previous season.
We will back both teams to score as the primary bet at 1.55 odds. It should be a solid banker bet, possibly even landing in the first half.
