Chicago Fire odds: +127 – 44.7%

Draw odds: +240 – 26.3%

Orlando City odds: +215 – 29.0%

Chicago Fire are the expected winners at +127, as coach Klopas’ boys have a solid 44.7% win probability ahead of Sunday’s match. However, we believe that the best way to approach this match would be with a Draw or Orlando City bet. Our betting tip has a massive 55.56% likelihood at -125. Over 2.5 Goals is also a good way to go, as there’s a 54.75% chance at -121.

Chicago Fire vs Orlando City Lineups & Team News

Chicago Fire

The beginning of the season for Chicago Fire was atrocious. No one can deny that. Coach Ezra Hendrickson took the blame and rightfully was sacked by Chicago Fire’s board. Now, we have Franck Klopas calling the shots, and it seems like the team is back on the right track. However, our Chicago Fire vs Orlando City predictions remain in favor of the visitors at Soldier Field, as Chicago Fire just doesn’t play well against the Lions.

Predicted lineup – Brady (GK), Dean, Pineda, Czichos, Navarro, Herbers, Gimenez, Haile-Selassie, Shaqiri, Gutierrez & Koutsias

Orlando City

Coach Oscar Pareja was fuming after the Leagues Cup match against Inter Miami. According to the Colombian manager, international soccer legend Lionel Messi should’ve been sent off with a second yellow card. Despite Messi being on the pitch, the Lions showed they are no pushovers and made Inter Miami work hard for their place in the next round of Leagues Cup soccer.

Predicted lineup – Stajduhar (GK), Carlos, Smith, Jansson, Santos, Araujo, Martins, Angulo, Pereyra, Ojeda & McGuire

Player to Watch: Cesar Araujo

Defensive midfielder Cesar Araujo had the next-to-impossible task of nullifying Lionel Messi in the Lions’ previous game. The match at DRV PNK Stadium didn’t go as planned, as La Pulga scored a lovely brace for Inter Miami. However, Cesar Araujo’s efforts did contain Messi’s playmaking skills to some degree. Furthermore, Araujo also scored a 17th-minute equalizer for Chicago Fire, which is another proof our Chicago Fire vs Orlando City predictions are on to something.
