Competition: MLS

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 2/3 @ 1xBet

In what could be an action-packed affair from Florida in the early hours of Sunday, Orlando will welcome St. Louis to the Exploria Stadium.

Starting with the hosts, while Orlando might have suffered Leagues Cup heartbreak at the hands of Inter Milan on August 3rd following their 3-1 defeat, the Purples certainly came roaring back last weekend. Putting in a thumping performance on the road as they landed a 3-1 win against Chicago, the mood in Oscar Pareja’s camp should be at a red-hot high. Heading into the month interval with a 2-1 victory away at Atalanta, the Lions are cruising towards a play-off ticket this season. With their recent MLS purple patch underlined by a 4-0 romp against Toronto last month, Orlando have mustered 12 points from their last five top-flight appearances. Likewise, gaining a reputation for their action-packed affairs, neutrals could be treated to another thriller here. It is worth highlighting, the Florida-based outfit have seen each of their previous five showdowns across all formats finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, although St. Louis might have endured a real Leagues Cup struggle last month, the MLS’ latest franchise are enjoying a stunning domestic flurry on either side of the month interval. Marking their return to domestic duties with a remarkable 6-3 victory at home against Austin, Bradley Carnell’s men are running rampant at the top of the Western Conference table. Holding a stunning seven-point buffer over the chasing pack, the Missouri-based outfit have won five of their last six MLS outings – a run that stems all the way back to a 3-1 loss against Real Salt Lake on June 22nd. Likewise, notching nine strikes in their back-to-back MLS appearances on either side of the month break, chances could come thick and fast this weekend. Recording just a single clean sheet in their last five contests across all formats, we are backing both teams to get on the scoresheet here.

Bet: Both teams to score at Orlando City vs St. Louis City 2/3 for Sunday’s MLS battle @ 1xBet
