New York FC 27/20 to beat Orlando City SC in Fridays MLS clash
Market: New York City FC win
Odds: 27/20 @ Bet 365
Looking to continue their climb up the Eastern Conference, in the early hours of Friday morning New York FC will travel to the Orlando City Stadium. Given the gulf in the recent form between the two sides, we’re backing an NYC win.
Starting with the hosts on Friday, after only securing an 11th place finish in the Eastern Conference last season, Orlando appears to be in for another difficult year this time around. After 20 MLS games, Orlando have won seven, drawn one and lost 12, scoring 29 and conceding 45 in return, they now hold the worst defensive record in either division. As for their recent form, Orlando have now remarkably lost 10 of their last 11 outings in the MLS and are already 18 points adrift of their visitors on Friday.
As for the visitors, after changing their manager earlier in the year, New York City FC have enjoyed a stellar start to Domènec Torrent tenure at Yankee Stadium. After 20 MLS games, NYC have won 12, drawn four and lost just four, scoring 40 and conceding 24 in return, they now hold the second best-attacking stats in the East. With a points tally of 40, a win on Friday will give NYC the chance to leapfrog The Red Bulls and briefly sit just a single point adrift of league leaders Atlanta United. As for their recent form, The Sky Blues have now won their last three matches on the bounce and more impressive, they have kept a clean sheet in all of those victories.
