Saturday night Toronto FC will make its way down to Bank of America Stadium to take on Charlotte FC. These two combatants have already faced each other earlier in the campaign, with Toronto FC winning 1-0. In five all-time meetings, TFC has three victories and one draw against the Crowns.

Charlotte FC are coming off a defeat last weekend to the worst side in the Eastern Conference. Losing 1-0 to the New England Revolution, Charlotte was only able to generate six shots toward the net with two hitting the target. With the setback, the Crowns find themselves winless in their last two games and have only grabbed maximum points once in their last five.

Meanwhile for Toronto FC after a promising start to 2024, suddenly the wheels have fallen off. The Reds got throttled last weekend in Vancouver suffering a 4-0 defeat. After only conceding two goals in their opening five fixtures, in their last two games suddenly the defense looks helpless surrendering seven goals.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favorite picks for Charlotte FC vs. Toronto FC.

Charlotte FC vs. Toronto FC Betting Predictions

Charlotte FC Preview

Up on attack, it’s been a sluggish start for Charlotte FC as they are currently averaging 0.9 goals per match which is the 25th-best average in MLS. In the expected goals department, the club is severely underperforming with six total goals registered but has an xG of 10.

The Crown's significant acquisition in last winter's transfer window has been missing in action so far as it’s been a tough start for Enzo Copetti in 2024. The team has slowly integrated him into the lineup after missing two games to injury only registering 35 minutes in his last two appearances. If Enzo can make a speedy recovery and be fully fit, it will be good news for CLTFC as they badly need a lethal striker to be in form.

Toronto FC Preview

Owing the honors of having the best defense in MLS in a small stretch of the season has now completely gone off the rails for John Herdman's men. Currently, TFC are conceding an average of 1.3 goals per game which is still respectable since it’s the 13th best in the competition. The last couple of performances the Reds have put in is slightly concerning showing shades of last year’s dreadful outings.

It was an ominous return from injury for Sean Johnson last weekend. Making his first start since March 3rd, couldn’t have gone worse for the veteran goalkeeper. The 34-year-old conceded four goals on six shots that he faced. He posted a dreadful 55 percent passing accuracy going 18-for-33.

Charlotte FC vs. Toronto FC - My Pick

Only two points separate these sides in the table, but the situational spot that presents to us has all signs pointing towards Charlotte grabbing all three points. CLTFC is a solid home side as they have grabbed a result in 15 straight games at Bank of America Stadium. In three home matches played this year the Crowns have only surrendered one goal.

On the other hand, Toronto FC come into this clash as losers in three of their last four matches. Finding the back of the net on the road has been an obstacle for TFC netting two goals in four away contests. Think on Saturday we see the return of Charlotte getting back to their winning ways with the tremendous home pitch advantage they possess.
