Goals should flow in this West versus East match up as LA Galaxy face Toronto FC. William Hill's Lee Phelps has been looking at the odds and has a free betting pick for us.

This is a tricky game to call with two teams in good form. It's one defeat in six for LA Galaxy and one loss in eight for Toronto FC. It's also 4th in the West versus 3rd in the East.

 

LA Galaxy
You don't get much better than two home wins than 5-1 and 5-0 against Philly and Portland with eight different scorers, out gunning their previous goal total in their preceding eight games at the Stubhub.

Juninho scored for a third consecutive game, but the Galaxy had their two-game winning streak and their two-match run of five-goal games put to an end in a 3-1 loss at the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday evening in the first California Clasico of the season.

They returned to winning ways in the US Open getting a quick revenge on San Jose on Thursday.

 

Toronto FC
The early season road troubles seem a long way off now for the Canadians, with no loss in their last four trips, beating Orlando, Philadelphia and DC United and drawing in New England.

They have only failed to score once outside Canada. Sebastian Giovinco has grabbed three goals in two matches and totals eight for the MLS season.

Toronto FC have not defeated the LA Galaxy in the league since 2008. The Galaxy have won four of the nine meetings since, with five draws, including a 3-0 win last October.

I can't touch the out rights here, both are in good form, but if forced it would have to be the draw. One bet I can get involved in is the over 2.5 goals though. As I've illustrated both are well capable of scoring goals and at 1.8 (4/5) that's a price I like too.
