Toronto FC vs. Inter Miami – MLS, November 1, 2020

| October 29, 2020 6:28 am PDT

Toronto has fallen three points behind first-place Philadelphia Union in the Eastern Conference following back-to-back defeats. The Reds will be eager to get back on track when they face Inter Miami at Rentschler Field on Sunday, November 1.

The Herons have dropped out of the top ten after losing to Dallas in midweek, and there is now a colossal 20-point gap between them and Toronto.

I discuss the bookies’ odds before sharing my Toronto FC vs. Inter Miami prediction and betting pick.

Toronto FC vs. Inter Miami Odds

Toronto FC to Win 1.91
The Draw 3.60
Inter Miami to Win 3.50

A couple of weeks ago, I’m sure the odds for the Toronto win (1.91) would have been a lot lower for this matchup. But the bookies’ have clearly taken the Reds’ poor recent form into account here.

The Canadians’ bad run has probably lowered the price for the Inter Miami win (3.50), too. Having said that, both sides have only managed to win one of their previous four outings.

I don’t think anyone could have predicted that Toronto would lose 5-0 to Philadelphia. The Ontario outfit was enjoying a phenomenal nine-game unbeaten run prior to last weekend, but their hot streak was brought to an end in dramatic fashion.

Needless to say, Greg Vanney would have been looking for a big response from his players on Wednesday. However, the Reds failed to register a single shot on target against New York City and eventually lost 1-0.

It is important to remember just how good Toronto has been in 2020. Having suffered just four defeats in 21 games this year, the Canadians are still firmly in contention for the Supporters’ Sheild. But the team’s weaknesses have been exposed in recent weeks.

After failing to net in their last two outings and only managing three goals in their previous five, Vanney’s men are now the lowest scorers in the top four. The goals have dried up for Toronto lately, and that is a slight cause for concern with the playoffs on the horizon.

On the other hand, the Herons have scored ten goals across their last seven games, but they have only managed to keep one clean sheet in that time. Inter Miami hasn’t struggle to hit the target recently, although their backline has continued to leak goals.

October has been pretty fruitful for the Florida club. Diego Alonso’s men enjoyed a three-game unbeaten streak earlier in the month before beating rivals Orlando City last weekend. However, Miami was outplayed by FC Dallas on Wednesday, losing 2-1 in Texas.

After contributing a goal and an assist in his first three MLS games, Gonzalo Higuain has struggled to make an impact of late. The former Juventus star will need to be at the top of his game if the Herons are to trouble Toronto this weekend.

Pick
  • Toronto FC to Win
    1.91

In my eyes, it only makes sense to take advantage of the high price for the Toronto win here. The Reds will be desperate to get back on track following successive defeats, and I believe the visit of Inter Miami provides them with the ideal opportunity to return to winning ways.

The Herons are still in with an outside chance of qualifying for the playoffs, but I’m expecting Toronto to get the job done on Sunday.
