July 5th: Wednesday’s MLS Double – 8/1 Special, Tips & Predictions

While the U21 European Championship semi-finals get underway on Wednesday night, we are treated to a stacked MLS schedule in the early hours.

So, for those of you looking to place a midweek flutter, we have created your ultimate Wednesday betting double.

00:30 Orlando City vs Toronto FC

Making a welcomed return to winning ways over the weekend thanks to another eye-catching performance at the Exploria Stadium, Orlando will be smelling that they have been handed a golden chance in the early hours of Wednesday. Eventually breezing their way to a 3-1 romp at home against Chicago, Oscar Pareja’s men find themselves tipped as a standout contender in the play-off chase.

Unbeaten in their three domestic showdowns since returning from June’s international break, the Lions have lost just one of their previous 10 domestic showdowns across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to May 9th.

Rightfully tipped as a standout pick in Florida here, Orlando should also be excited by their continued success at the Exploria Stadium.

Including a routine 2-0 victory against Colorado on June 10th, the former Dallas boss has not seen his squad suffer a single defeat in front of their own supporters from any of their previous six battles.

With Uruguayan international Facundo Torres now notching six strikes in as many appearances for club and country, Orlando should be relishing Toronto’s arrival in the early hours of Wednesday.

Putting in another nightmare display over the weekend as they slumped to a deserved 1-0 loss at home against Real Salt Lake, the midweek guests have lost each of their last three domestic appearances since returning from June’s international break by an aggregate score of 6-1.

Likewise, recording just a single win from any of their last 12 straight showdowns – a run that stems all the way back to April 29th – the former MLS champions have come under a huge amount of scrutiny this season.

Battling it out at the foot of the Eastern Conference standings and needing a minor miracle in their bid to claim a shock play-off ticket, interim boss Terry Dunfield will know that his struggling squad faces a huge challenge here.

01:30 FC Dallas vs DC United

Although Dallas might have shown some worrying issues on either side of June’s international break Wednesday’s hosts certainly claimed a stellar boost over the weekend. Claiming a 2-0 victory against Western Conference giants Los Angeles, the Texas-based outfit will be desperate use that display as a platform to build on going forward.

Hoping to secure back-to-back domestic wins since the middle of May, Nico Estevez’s side should be excited by their continued success at the Toyota Stadium.

Including a deserved 2-0 win against St. Louis back on June 7th, the Toros have suffered just one loss from any of their previous nine appearances in front of their own supporters – a run that stems all the way back to February 25th.

Still sat in pole position to claim another play-off spot in 2023, Estevez’s men will be looking to cash in on a DC United squad who are enduring another public struggle.

Making an immediate return to losing ways over the weekend thanks to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Nashville, Wayne Rooney’s men have lost three of their last four domestic appearances and they have also gained a reputation for their extended issues on the road.

With growing pressure on the former Manchester United record-breaker, Rooney should also be concerned by his side’s worrying record against the midweek hosts.

In fact, along with getting hit with a routine 2-0 loss when they last travelled to the Toyota Stadium back in July 2019, it should also be highlighted that DC have lost four of their previous five showdowns.
