Welcome to our latest round of MLS betting tips! Every week here at CaptainGambling.com, we select three upcoming fixtures in the MLS and provide an expert betting tip for you to take advantage of. We have all the stats, facts & figures, so if you’re looking to place a wager - you’re definitely in the right place!
This week, we have an Eastern Conference battle that we’re keeping a very close eye on. Orlando City will host a struggling Atlanta United side on Friday night, with three points the aim for both teams. Will Orlando send the away team back on the road with nothing to show for their travels? Or will it be Atlanta that steals all three points?
Orlando City have made a positive start to the MLS campaign, and heading into the halfway stage, they have put themselves in a great position to reach the postseason. With an opportunity to earn three points against Atlanta, Orlando would find themselves within five points of current Eastern Conference leaders, New England Revolution. They’re certainly within touching distance, and will definitely be in the hunt of the No.1 spot for the rest of the season. With that said, Orlando will be looking to make amends for their last result - a 5-0 defeat away to New York City FC. It was not pleasant for Orlando fans, but the team now have a perfect chance to bounce back in their upcoming game.
Over the last few weeks, our betting tips have included Atlanta United on more than one occasion. Unfortunately, we are finding it hard to explain anything else, other than the fact that Atlanta are a side struggling this year. In their most recent game - a 1-0 defeat to Columbus Crew - United extended their winless run to a total of 10 games. It’s a distant memory for Atlanta fans, who last saw their team win a game on May 16. While there has been an element of being unlucky, the stat of winless games now in double figures is a major concern for Atlanta. On top of that, in 15 league games this season, Atlanta have only managed to win on two separate occasions.
When looking at the last five games between the two teams, the first noticeable stat was the fact that Orlando have come up against Atlanta five times since August of last year. Therefore, we can say that the pair are certainly familiar with each other. As well as that, there’s a continued trend of Atlanta failing to secure a win, and haven’t done so against Orlando in their last five, either. Meanwhile, Orlando will be going into the game with some confidence, winning in two of the previous encounters.
Now, let’s get to the betting side of things. We’ve seen how the two teams fare against one another, with Orlando definitely looking like the stronger side heading into Friday evening’s contest. With that said, here are the details regarding the teams’ last five encounters, along with some statistical highlights.
After our experts analyzed all of the information above, we’ve put together a betting tip for Orlando vs Atlanta for you to make the most of. We’re predicting a home win for Orlando City, along with under 2.5 goals combined inside the 90 minutes.
Here at CaptainGambling.com, our latest betting tip for this weekend’s game is that Orlando City will get the win in what we think will be a low-scoring affair. Whilst Atlanta’s record is rather unpleasant, the actual games have been much closer than expected. For example, the away side narrowly lost 1-0 to both New England Revolution (Eastern Conference leaders) and Columbus Crew (2020 MLS Cup Champions) this season. Therefore, we think that it’s likely that they will put up a fight against their opponents each week, including Friday’s matchup with Orlando. However, the home side certainly has the quality to get a goal, and we think they’ll do enough to get all three points from the game.
