Competition: MLS

Market: Orlando City win

Odds: 7/10 @ Pribet

Looking to secure back-to-back MLS victories in the early hours of Wednesday, Orlando will welcome a struggling Toronto to the Exploria Stadium.

Starting with the hosts, making a welcomed return to winning ways over the weekend as they breezed their way to a 3-1 romp against Chicago, Orlando should find the mood in their camp at a continued high. Tipped as a leading contender to claim another play-off ticket in the Eastern Conference, the Lions should be smelling the chance to secure back-to-back MLS victories here. Suffering just a single loss from any of their last 10 straight domestic appearances – a run that stems all the way back to May 9th – Oscar Pareja’s men have continued to gain a reputation for their rugged performances at the Exploria Stadium. Along with clinching a routine 2-0 win against Colorado on June 10th, Orlando are rightfully seen as a standout pick here. Without a sole defeat in front of their own supporters since the end of April, the Lions should be relishing Toronto’s arrival to Florida in the early hours of Wednesday.

As for the visitors, only continuing on a woeful run of form since returning from June’s international break, Toronto find themselves at the heart of another domestic crisis. Last seen over the weekend putting in a downbeat display as they slumped to a 1-0 loss at home against Real Salt Lake, the Reds have now lost each of their previous three MLS appearances by an aggregate score of 6-1. Coming under a huge amount of scrutiny in 2023, interim boss Terry Dunfield knows that he has an almighty job on his hands. Mustering just a single win from their last 12 straight domestic showdowns – a run that stems all the way back to April 29th – Toronto face what could be a huge challenge in midweek. Slumping to a 4-0 drumming when they last travelled to the Exploria Stadium nine months ago, we are expecting a similar home victory in the early hours of Wednesday.
