Frog's betting tip for Toronto vs Colorado Rapids
With the verdict in this one, Frog doesn't expect to see a clean-sheet at the end of this match. Both Teams To Score is the pick and it's a short price with the odds-compilers. However, it is important to state that this does not look like what anyone would call massive value. There will be better value opportunities elsewhere on the FTG platform. William Hill will give you 1.57 for both sides scoring.
