Orlando City vs Cincinnati betting tips: Major League Soccer preview, predictions and odds

Orlando City are unbeaten in all five meetings with FC Cincinnati, including 1-0 victory in Ohio last October. The Orange and Blue have won just seven of 46 MLS away games in their history.

So, Orlando City to win and over 2.5 goals is 5/4.

Orlando City to win and both teams to score NO is 6/4.

Facundo Torres is 11/2 to break the deadlock and 8/5 to net anytime.

Match preview

Will Orlando City continue their positive start to the season?

The Lions began this campaign with a 2-0 victory over CF Montréal, in which Alexandre Pato and Benji Michel scored before both teams were reduced to ten-men.

It was Pato's first-ever goal in MLS after an injury-hit 2021 campaign.

Then, last weekend, Óscar Pareja's side held Chicago Fire to a goalless draw at Soldier Field, not mustering a shot on target in Illinois.

Nevertheless, back in Florida, Orlando will very much fancy their chances of adding three more points to their tally.

As for the visitors, it may be a new year but it's same old for FC Cincinnati.

In week one, the Orange and Blue were demolished 5-0 by Austin FC at Q2 Stadium.

Seven days later, Pat Noonan's side were, in fairness, much more competitive and came agonisingly close to a point against D.C. United.

Despite the fact the away side were a man down, D.C. were awarded a 98th minute penalty at TQL Stadium and snatched a 1-0 victory.

This is Cincinnati's fourth season in Major League Soccer and, in each of the previous three, they've ended up with the Wooden Spoon.

Already, they're bottom of the overall standings and are one of four teams yet to get off the mark.

Will that change at Exploria Stadium?
