Seattle Sounders vs Orlando City Betting Tips

Seattle Sounders will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Eastern Conference opponents Orlando City in Major League Soccer on Wednesday.


The MLS Cup winners suffered an unfortunate defeat at the hands of New York City FC last weekend, and this has seen them drop further down the table. Sounders are currently placed eighth in the Western Conference, eighth points behind Sporting KC, who have played a game more.

On the other hand, Orlando have had a good season in comparison to Seattle, and they find themselves fourth in the Eastern Conference, still seven behind last year’s Cup finalists Toronto FC. Sounders have lost just one game away from home in the last five attempts, and this could put them at a significant advantage over Orlando, who have won just one in their last five outings.

Clint Dempsey and Will Bruin will once again be the key faces upfront for the Sounders, who will hope to go on a long winning streak to regain a foothold in the league. On the other hand, Orlando have a star studded player in the form of Kaka, but they are dependent on young Canadian Cyle Larin, who has bagged eight goals in 15 outings this term.

Former Fulham star Dempsey is being tipped to score anytime at odds of 11/10 with opposition forward Larin offered 21/10 to bag himself a goal. The match itself is tipped to be one-sided with Sounders at 11/20 to clinch all three points in comparison to Orlando who are 11/2 to end their recent winless streak. The Major League Soccer has had a lot of unpredictability in either conference, and this could be seen by the dominance in the point tally on the Eastern side with Toronto and Chicago easing their way into the playoffs.
