IT was one out of two for Jordan as he paid an early-morning visit Down Under.
He says: “Maclaren got his goal after his call-up to the international side so that was good to see. Busy this weekend so getting picks ready and I’m skipping Saturday altogether.
“Last week I backed Watford to score twice against a Hull side who were struggling with injuries and fatigue. While they only scored once they threw everything but the kitchen sink at a shaky Hull defence
“Southampton played in the Europa League on Thursday and did well to come from behind and get the points against a fancied Inter side. Hull could be in real trouble if they keep piling up the losses so while they should have some fight in them Southampton’s squad should prove too good.
“The MLS play-offs are back for the last-eight second legs. Toronto travel to NYCFC with two goals in the last 10 minutes from the first leg so NYCFC have it all to do.
“Lucky for them they have a good scoring record at home against Toronto who aren’t keeping clean sheets on the road this season. However, they are scoring.
“Their last nine road games have seen BTTS with seven going over 2.5 and two of three contests in New York have also seen this market land. David Villa has scored four goals in the three contests at home against Toronto, also missing a penalty.
“Villa has netted 13 of their 35 at home this season and if they want to progress they’ll need a strong showing. Most coaches would probably try to hold a 2-0 lead on the road but this is the MLS.”
