Minnesota United vs Toronto Betting Tips & Betting Lines

Currently 6th, Minnesota United will host lackluster Toronto on the 4th of June at Allianz Stadium with hopes that a victory will be easily achieved. Does coach Bob Bradley have any tricks up his sleeve or will Minnesota get free points on Sunday?

Stay tuned to find out the answer to this question in our professional Minnesota United vs Toronto predictions for matchday 17 in MLS.

Minnesota United to Win

One thing we can say for certain is that the visitors are among the biggest disappointments this season. They lost the only visit at Allianz Stadium after a spectacular 4-3 victory for Minnesota United but that’s not the key reason behind our Minnesota United vs Toronto prediction.

The pressure to succeed is immense and coach Bob Bradley’s boys will be very susceptible to defensive errors which will be severely punished by Adrian Heath’s boys. With five victories, four draws, and five losses, Minnesota United’s 2023 record is far sturdier than Toronto’s.

BTTS – No

With Lorenzo Insigne out for coach Bob Bradley, Toronto’s chance to score is reduced drastically. It will be up to Federico Bernardeschi to once again be a difference-maker for the visitors but it’s only so much pulling forward that the former Juventus star can do.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that Minnesota United might not score as well. After all, all three games between the two teams ended with goals galore. Surely, given the fact that both teams lack attacking punch, Sunday’s brawl is doomed to be a lackluster event, right?

Minnesota United odds: -113 – 52.0%

Draw odds: +250 – 27.0%

Toronto odds: +300 – 21.0%

Minnesota United are the bookies’ expected winners with a 52.0% win probability. The favorites’ odds stand at -113 which is good enough in our book. That’s why our key Minnesota United vs Toronto prediction favors coach Adrian Heath’s boys. Furthermore, Bob Bradley’s Toronto’s likelihood of winning is estimated at an unfortunate 21.0% at +300.

Minnesota United vs Toronto Lineups & Team News

Minnesota United

A recent 4-0 defeat for coach Sartini’s boys is what may drag the team’s performance down versus Toronto. The U.S. Open Cup match versus in-form Houston Dynamo was lost with a brutal 4-0 and we believe coach Sartini will have to motivate his boys to get up from the knock sooner rather than later. They didn’t seem to listen as the following game was a disappointing 1-1 tie against Pablo Mastroeni’s lackluster Real Salt Lake.

Predicted lineup – St. Clair (GK), Lawrence, Tapias, Boxall, Taylor, Dotson, Trapp, Rosales, Fragapane, Hlongwane & Amarilla

Toronto

We wouldn’t want to be in coach Bob Bradley’s shoes right now. Experienced as he may be, the board’s patience has limits and we’re sure that if Toronto don’t start earning points as soon as possible, we’ll see the people in charge give coach Bradley the boot. Being at the bottom of the table in the Eastern Conference is unacceptable for a team of Toronto’s stature but it’s a good sign for our Minnesota United vs Toronto predictions. The morale on the team is at an all-time low and the pressure to succeed will surely  make things more difficult for coach Bob Bradley’s players.

Predicted lineup – Johnson (GK), Franklin, Mabika, Hedges, Laryea, Kaye, Kerr, Marshall-Rutty, Bernardeschi & Sapong

Player to Watch: Federico Bernardeschi

If you’ve followed our betting tips earlier this season, you’d know how eager we were to see Lorenzo Insigne back into play. However, yet another injury hit him hard, and now, the atomic Italian duo is reduced to a one-man show.

Federico Bernardesci is coach Bob Bradley’s last hope of keeping his job. And the former is a major threat to our Minnesota United vs Toronto predictions, we can agree on that.

With three goals to his name throughout the 2023 campaign, Federico Bernardeschi is singlehandedly pulling Toronto’s wagon this season. However, the former Juventus superstar is no one-trick pony. He also has two assists to his name. The only player to supply his compadres with more cut-throat passes is right-back Richie Laryea.

The right side of the field is definitely where Toronto shine and if Minnesota United want to get much-needed three points, they’ll have to go the extra mile against Bernardeschi.
