Chicago Fire odds: +130 – 43.1%

Draw odds: +260 – 24.0%

Cincinnati odds: +195 – 32.9%

Chicago Fire have the home-field advantage at Soldier Field and this makes them the expected winners, with a 43.1% win probability ahead of the kick-off on the 3rd of March. However, we are convinced that FC Cincinnati have the three points up for grabs, despite the rather lackluster 32.9% win probability at +195. We also think we will see over 2.5 Cincinnati Goals. The chance of that happening, according to the bookmakers, is approximately 30.77%.

Chicago Fire vs Cincinnati Lineups & Team News

Chicago Fire

Similar to Cincinnati, Chicago Fire also managed to win a point in their opening Major League Soccer game. No one expected that of them in the difficult visit against Philly at Subaru Park, but here we are. Coach Frank Klopas’ boys could’ve easily lost the game, as they had only 43.0% possession and way more shots at target, which is good news for our Chicago Fire vs Cincinnati predictions.

Predicted lineup – Celentano (GK), Keller, Robinson, Murphy, Kubo, Nwobodo, Bucha, Orellano, Acosta, Santos & Baird

Cincinnati

Despite Acosta’s numerous cut-throat passes, Cincinnati’s strikers just couldn’t slide it past Johnson on the 25th of February. Coach Pat Noonan used the best players at his disposal, but they let him down in a 0-0 tie against lackluster Toronto.

Predicted lineup – Celentano (GK), Keller, Robinson, Murphy, Kubo, Nwobodo, Bucha, Orellano, Acosta, Santos & Baird

Player to Watch: Luciano Acosta

Luciano Acosta scooped up the Best Player of the Season Award for his outstanding contribution in 2023. He didn’t win the Top Goalscorer or Best Creator Awards, but he was in the fights for both of them up until the very end.

Luciano Acosta was on the pitch at TQL Stadium versus Toronto the entire 90 minutes last week, and despite his efforts, his team just couldn’t penetrate the Canucks’ backline. However, we are convinced that Luciano Acosta is more than eager to prove he still has what it takes to be the difference maker for coach Pat Noonan, and he will help prove our Chicago Fire vs Cincinnati predictions correct.
