Over 3.5 Goals

Surely, the neutral fans will enjoy this one. Our primary Toronto vs DC United predictions are in favor of a top-notch display by the two teams at BMO Field. The last clash that didn’t end with three or more goals was the narrow 2-1 Toronto win last year.

That being said, we also have to mention that six of the last seven games between Toronto and DC United ended with four or more goals with the 2-2 draw being the most common occurrence.

Undoubtedly, the most thrilling result we saw over the last couple of years was that devasting 7-1 win for DC United on the 3rd of July, 2021.

Draw or DC United

Surprisingly or not, the 2-2 draw is the most regular score we’ve had between these two over the past two-three years. A shocking 40.0% of the last 10 games ended with a 2-2 score and we feel it’s quite possible that Sunday’s MLS clash between these two equals might end the same way.

Especially, when you consider the improvement we saw in coach Wayne Rooney’s boys’ display in the 2023 race compared to last year’s performance. The players recorded five victories, four draws, and five losses so far and are rightfully making an attack on the top five spots.

Toronto odds: +118 – 44.0%

Draw odds: +240 – 28.0%

DC United odds: +240 – 38.0%

Our ‘Over 3.5 Goals’ betting tip for Toronto vs DC United has a solid 30.3% likelihood if the Toronto vs DC United odds are any indication. Furthermore, Toronto are the expected winners with a 44.0% win probability at +118. However, we’re not exactly convinced by coach Bob Bradley’s boys this season so we give the edge to the visitors.

Toronto vs DC United Lineups & Team News

Toronto

Coach Bob Bradley’s boys played the full 14 fixtures and they have nothing to show for it. Toronto are at the very bottom of the Eastern Conference with disappointing 13 points achieved throughout two victories, seven draws, and five losses. That’s not the sort of performance that can put a dent in our Toronto vs DC United predictions so we are comfortable with our MLS tips.

Predicted lineup – Johnson (GK), Petretta, Mabika, Laryea, Franklin, Insigne, Servania, Thompson, Bernardeschi, Akinola & Sapong

DC United

DC United’s 2023 MLS race is definitely a pleasant surprise. After 14 fixtures, coach Wayne Rooney’s boys have a 5-4-5 record that is surely putting to shame some of the most prolific teams in the league.

Predicted lineup – Miller (GK), Williams, Palsson, Pines, Samake, O’Brien, Canouse, Durkin, Klich, Ku-DiPietro & Benteke

Player to Watch: Christian Benteke

We hoped to see a Christian Benteke goal last week when DC United and LA Galaxy collided at Audi Field and the former Liverpool and Crystal Palace striker duly delivered. The 32-year-old finisher bagged a lovely 71st-minute goal to put the game beyond all doubt and by doing so, he scored his 6th goal this season.

Furthermore, there are very few players in MLS this season who can match his solid tally so we feel his contribution on the 28th of May will be immense. He’s undoubtedly the key player to watch and we expect him to do very well at BMO Field.
