The one defeat came on Saturday at Atlanta United, a game in which Messi did not play. By contrast, prior to Messi joining the team, Inter Miami had just two wins in their previous 13 matches.

In addition, the Herons face a Toronto FC side that has struggled mightily this season. Over their last 15 matches across all competitions, the Reds have recorded just one win. They have been outscored 28-9 over that stretch. See picks at SportsLine

Why you should back Toronto FC

The Reds face an Inter Miami defense that has hemorrhaged goals this season. The Herons have conceded 44 goals in 27 games in league play. Their 1.63 goals-against average is the second worst in the MLS, behind only the LA Galaxy (1.67). On Saturday, Inter Miami conceded five goals in a 5-2 defeat against Atlanta United.

In addition, Deandre Kerr has been an offensive catalyst for Toronto recently. Two games ago, the 20-year-old forward had a goal and an assist in a 3-1 upset of Philadelphia. Then on Saturday, he scored the team's only goal in a 2-1 loss to Vancouver. Kerr's five goals on the season are tied for the team lead. See picks at SportsLine
