side analysis

There seems to be no answer in sight for Bob Bradley’s team right now, as Toronto messed up the first half of their 2–1 loss. Beginning in a 3-4-2-1 formation, Bradley’s men were unable to generate any meaningful possession, before converting TFC to a four-man back line within half an hour of an injury. was forced to. Nevertheless, they were very conservative in the opening verses, with no success. His defense was inconsistent, the midfield made too many sloppy passes, and any attempt to play the ball down the pitch went nowhere. This should come as no surprise though, as they are completing less than a third of their long passes this season, the second worst in MLS.

Toronto FC’s cowardice and inability to exert any pressure on the visitors allowed Cincinnati to gain confidence as time went on, and this manifested in a goal late in the first half, when a corner routine struck Nick Haglund. saw Ian Murphy cross down, who was unmarked on the penalty spot and didn’t waste his chance as he easily ended up pushing the visitors into halftime.

Seven minutes after the break, playmaker Luciano Acosta was the beneficiary of poor defence, as a long throw-in into the box landed on his feet, and he was able to push the keeper back and finish.

Toronto eventually began throwing numbers forward, laying siege to the area of ​​Cincinnati. With reinforcements for visitors waiting to enter, Toronto eventually joined the board with Jesus Jiménez, who scored a side-volley from a head-cross, leading to his league-leading seventh goal of the campaign. . Bradley threw his every forward, including the return of Ayo Akinola after nine months out with a knee injury, but this was not enough as Cincinnati was able to waste time and defend his life until the final whistle. .

Toronto is devoid of any on-the-pitch lead, and its defense has let Cincinnati fall behind repeatedly in the first half. Despite all this, she could have easily avoided a draw on Saturday as Cincinnati’s finishing troubles reared her head. In fact, it took a two-goal break in the stoppage time of the second half and still was unable to avert the match. Had Toronto opened the match by playing the last 30 minutes, one could argue that they would have taken all three points.

Personally, I would stay away from betting on the outcome of this match, as Toronto’s readiness in the second half showed it could put serious pressure on Cincinnati’s defense. I also don’t count on Cincinnati to win at home, something they’ve done just twice in 21 league matches at TQL Stadium. While I am confident that FC Cincinnati will pass their past and go on to take the win, if I have to play anything related to the result, I will bet that Cincinnati will score first again and move on to the hiatus.

forecast: FC Cincinnati First-Half Moneyline (+165 at DraftKings)

over/under analysis

Toronto has conceded a goal in the first half of each of their last four matches and in three of their four road fixtures so far in 2022. The New York Red Bulls took four behind and Real Salt Lake before the first break of this season. Scoresheet also in his fixture twice in the first 45.

As far as Cincinnati is concerned, he has now scored first in his last two games and has recorded a first-half tally in five of his last seven games. It has scored a total of five goals in the first half in its last three matches at the TQL Stadium. I see no reason why any trend against the worst defense in the league would not continue.

best bet

As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” My best bet in Saturday’s match preview was for both teams to score and score at least three goals, and if you play that, you win with 25 minutes left. In a match in which Cincinnati missed several chances and saw Toronto siege their opponent’s penalty area for most of the later stages of the match, the only surprise was that no more than three runs were scored.

Toronto is in a tough spot here. If it goes on like the second half, it will leave itself exposed to a Cincinnati attack that broke it to pieces several times on Saturday. If TFC replays slowly and methodically, it allows the home side to remain calm and hit the break.

I don’t believe TFC can do well either, nor do I trust Cincinnati to have a clean sheet at any point. While I can be convinced of almost any result full-time, I can’t believe that either one plays better than the defense in the first meeting. Ride this betting trend now in five of Cincinnati’s last seven games and each of Toronto’s last eight.
