Key Stats

  • Columbus Crew won three of their last four games in all competitions.
  • Coach Wilfried Nancy has a positive record against the Lions, consisting of four victories, two draws, and only three losses.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Lions can win, bookies think

  • HOME: +127 – 43.1%
  • DRAW: +250 – 25.0%
  • AWAY: +205– 31.9%

*These Orlando City vs Columbus Crew odds are subject to change

Despite the obvious favorites being the Lions, with odds priced at +127 (43.1%), we give the edge to the visitors. We believe coach Wilfried Nancy’s players deserve to be named the expected winners, as they are the current Major League Soccer champions. Moreover, we believe a goal from Diego Rossi is not out of the question here, as the Uruguayan goalscorer stands a 36.10% chance of sliding it past Orlando’s shot-stopper on the 26th of May.

We advise you to check out the following Orlando City vs Columbus Crew statistics before you place a wager on this match.

Orlando City team news and form: Negative goal ratio by Lions

Orlando City haven’t conceded any goals in their two previous outings, but we believe this won’t be the case on Sunday when coach Oscar Pareja’s boys go up against the champions. Orlando City have a negative goal ratio of -5, which is surely taking its toll on the players.

Predicted lineup: Gallese (GK), Brekalo, Cartagena, Schlegel, Martins, Lodeiro, Angulo, Torres, Borhallsson, McGuire & Muriel

Columbus Crew team news and form: Hard-to-crack Crew cruising

Columbus Crew won the 2023 Major League Soccer title and after a sturdy display like last year’s, you expect coach Wilfried Nancy’s boys to be doing fine in 2024 as well. And they are. The team lost only two games in the last 11 outings in all competitions, which is a massive plus in favor of our Orlando City vs Columbus Crew predictions.

Predicted lineup: Schulte (GK), Cheberko, Camacho, Moreira, Farsi, Nagbe, Morris, Sands, Hinestroza, Rossi & Ramirez
