Orlando City 17/20 to beat LA Galaxy in Saturday’s MLS matchup
Market: Orlando City win
Odds: 17/20 @ Bet 365
With the chance to climb into the play-off positions, Orlando City will host LA Galaxy in the early hours on Saturday morning.
Starting with the hosts, while it has been far from a consistent start to the new MLS campaign for Orlando City, they will be boosted by their thumping 5-1 win last weekend. In their opening 13 matches in the Eastern Conference, the Purples have recorded four wins, three draws, and six defeats, scoring 19 and conceding 20 in return. With a points tally of 15, a victory on Saturday could see Orlando climb as high as sixth in the table. As for their recent run of results, while this weekend’s hosts may have managed to record just one win in their last five MLS appearances, they have won three of their last four on home soil, scoring a very impressive 10 goals.
As for the visitors, while a bright start to the season had LA Galaxy dreaming of a title push in the Western Conference, they have begun to show some real struggles of late. In their opening 13 MLS matches this year, they have recorded seven wins, one draw, and five defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 17 in return. With a points tally of 22, the Whites now sit nine points adrift of Conference leaders LAFC. As for their recent run of results, LA Galaxy have lost all four of their previous outings conceding two or more goals in three of those defeats. More worrying Saturday’s visitors have also lost their last two matches on the road, conceding three goals in both of those losses.
