FC Dallas and the Orlando City SC square off Saturday night at the Orlando Citrus Bowl.
FC Dallas look to keep rolling after winning its last two matches. FC Dallas is an offensive team that’s been shutout just five times in 18 matches and scored at least two goals in seven of those contests. Fabian Castillo leads Dallas with seven goals, Mauro Diaz has six assists and Blas Perez has 22 shot attempts. Defensively, FC Dallas has allowed two or more goals in eight matches, but has shutout its last two opponents in its last two MLS matches. Dan Kennedy has 21 saves overall and has allowed just one goal in his last three starts. Still, FC Dallas could be a lot better defensively. FC Dallas hasn’t won any of its last five road matches, which includes a 0-3-2 record.

The Orlando City SC also looks to continue its run after winning three of its last five matches. The Orlando City SC have scored 23 goals in 18 matches and scored two or more goals in seven of those contests. Ricardo Kaka leads Orlando with nine goals, Pedro Ribeiro has two assists and Carlos Rivas has 29 shot attempts. Defensively, the Orlando City SC have pitched five shutouts and have allowed two or more goals in eight of their matches. Tally Hall has come away with 27 saves and has allowed three goals in his last three starts. The Orlando City SC have won their last three home matches.
This will be the first time these two play one another.
In a matchup between two teams that are having success lately but still a shaky on the defensive end, I like the over in this match, as I expect there to be at least three goals scored.
