This is hardly an ideal backdrop for a game against a team that has only suffered two defeats in 19 fixtures this season, and comes into this clash unbeaten in seven on the road.

What’s more, New York boast an impressive record in recent head-to-head encounters, having lost none of the most recent six.

Predictions

All in all, those 15/8 (2.88) odds are surely worth backing on NYCFC inflicting upon Orlando a fourth defeat in six home matches.

All odds correct at time of publish. Please gamble responsibly.
