The Line: -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
Los Angeles FC will be in action in the MLS as they take on Orlando City. This game is set to take place at the Banc of California Stadium so LAFC will be at home. Both teams would love to get a win on the board and as a result, we should be able to watch a great game of soccer.
LAFC played midweek and only managed to get a draw. This team is lacking their best player, Carlos Vela, who is away playing at the World Cup for Mexico. Without Vela, LAFC looks like they lack attacking talent and that has been a big problem for the club in recent weeks. As it currently stands, LAFC one point off top spot in the Western Conference but to managed to stay in this position they will need to ensure that they continue to win their games.

On the other side of the coin, Orlando City is looking very poor. The Lions have not scored in many games and they are conceding way too many goals. This is a massive cause for concern. It seems that with Kaka gone from the football club, the team doesn’t know how to score. There will be management changes at the club in the coming month with the manager already gone. Many of the players are also expected to leave and with this season already gone for Orlando City, it seems unlikely we will see any good performances.
All in all, I am going to predict that LAFC wins this match. While the home side lacks skill without Carlos Vela, Orlando City are too poor. This should be an easy win for LAFC and I see Orlando City’s season only getting worse. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a bad price on LAFC to win so I would avoid that bet. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals which should win since I see Orlando City losing badly.
