Now for the details. The last time these teams faced off was all the way back in 2019. Seattle took that game 3-1. In fact Seattle has won the last three of five games when facing Toronto. In those three games, they have been winning by an average margin of 1.33 goals, and have seen ZERO draws.

The lines for this game have been changing, but right now they sit at +150 for a Toronto FC win, +155 for a Seattle win, and +260 for a draw. My “sharp” angle on this game is going to be on the home team, the Seattle Sounders, at +155 to bring home the win.

Taking a look into some more MLS stats, specifically about Toronto, you can see they aren't playing their best soccer right now. They have a -8 goal differential on the year, and almost double the goals against when compared to Seattle. Toronto FC has seen 32 goals against, while Seattle has seen only 19 goals against.

In Toronto FC’s last five games they have seen an average of 3.4 goals scored per game, while in Seattle’s last five they have seen an average of 3 goals per game. The over at 2.5 currently sits at -160 on BetMGM, but based on the law of averages, is the smart play.

Once again, if you're new and are looking to get signed up to bet on the MLS, make sure to use our code VIBONUS at signup. BetMGM is offering a risk free bet of $1,000 to new users only. Why not use it on a plus money play like Seattle money line +155?

Not only does Toronto lack when it comes to saving goals, but they lack when it comes to scoring goals. They average a measly 1.6 goals in their last five matchups. They failed to cover the money line in their last three of five games, even producing a draw in one as well.

If you made it this far congrats, I will give you a wrap up. If I had to predict the score of this match I have it Seattle winning 2-1, or 3-1. The play is Seattle +155, and the over which is set at 2.5 goals and -160 juice.
