DC United vs Orlando City – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

DC United have a 100% home record after winning both matches, while Orlando City have been able to avoid defeats in all four league matches so far. The top predictions for this match would be:

DC United win

DC United once again proved that their home form is far superior compared to their away form. The team reversed a sequence of three consecutive losses with the win over Chicago Fire in the midweek action. Orlando City are unbeaten in four league matches, but Oscar Pareja’s team have managed only one win in this run. As a result, the team sits in the lower end of play-off positions. Even after suffering three losses, DC United are above Orlando in the table. Even in the last three meetings, DC United have come out on top.

Both teams to score – yes

The matches involving DC United may not see a lot of goals from Hernan Losada’s men but they are only a couple of good touches away from converting the numerous half chances that they create. Orlando have been very dependent on Nani for inspiration and the former Manchester United winger has so far been able to step to the task.

Total goals over 2.5

The games involving DC United have witnessed a decent number of goals this season. Apart from the narrow 1-0 scores with New England and Chicago Fire, these games have been able to witness good conversion rates from the forwards. Orlando have so far been involved in just one high scoring match. However, the strength of the home team could have an impact on this game.

DC United

DC United will be delighted to get back to the Audi Field where they will be remaining for the next two matches. This gives a great opportunity for Hernan Losada to see his team make up some positions in the league table. The run of three consecutive losses was threatening to derail DC United season even before it began. Bill Hamid, Jose Reyna, Paul Arriola, and Chris Odoi-Atsem are unavailable for DC United.

Orlando City

Oscar Pareja’s men have been doing well in the first few games of the season. However, the team needs to convert draws into wins if they are to start making up the positions in the league table. The absence of some key players like Alexandre Pato for the upcoming match could impact the offensive threat from Orlando. Alexandre Pato, Oriol Rosell Argerich, and David Loera are unavailable due to injuries.
