Orlando City vs DC United Prediction and Betting Odds

Orlando City vs DC United Prediction: Orlando City will start as favorites to win their upcoming game against DC United as per the latest predictions.

Orlando City will look to target a spot in the top 4 of the Eastern Conference when they host DC United for the next MLS fixture tonight. Oscar Pareja’s men have done a decent job over the last few weeks. They recently qualified for the U.S Open Cup Semifinals by winning the Quarterfinal match on penalties against Nashville. Rodrigo Schelego’s late equalizer in injury time brought Orlando City back in the game.

D.C United is having nothing much to feel proud of in their campaign so far. With only 4 wins from 15 matches, they have a lot to do in the remaining matches to improve their position in the tournament. D.C United will aim to avoid their straight loss when they meet Orlando City at the Exploria Stadium tonight.
