New York City FC vs. Orlando City Predictions

Key Stat: Orlando can get their first three-win streak of the season

Tip Reasoning

  • Orlando comes from two straight away wins
  • New York has won only one of the four previous away games
  • Orlando is desperate to win and gain some ground in the fight for playoff places

Is this the first time in the season that Orlando City puts on a three-win streak? I believe so – and that’s without their best goal threat, Alexandre Pato. New York definitely don’t look like the same team after Valentin Castellanos left for Girona and they lost a lot of ground in the fight for the top places of the Eastern Conference.

With Orlando desperate to open a bigger gap to 8th-place New England Revolution and not much left for New York to play during the regular season, the level of interest between these two teams might play a part in the result – NYC might look to not push too hard as their playoff berth is all but secure. I can see some improvement for Orlando in previous games, which leads me to believe that they’ll win their third game in a row.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: New York games always mean ‘goalfest’

  • Orlando has seen over 2.5 goals in three of their previous four home games.
  • New York games average 3 goals per game during the MLS season
  • Both teams have reasons to risk themselves and go for the win

Even with Alexandre Pato out for Orlando and Santiago Rodriguez suspended for New York, I still believe that, given the importance of the game and how both sides need the win, we’ll see the over 2.5 hitting with some ease, especially given the high average of goals in matches that involve these teams. Both teams come from a win in the previous game and this always give some kind of confidence to players to go out there and perform even better, which can only help our bet.
