Orlando City vs LA Galaxy Predictions, Picks, and Betting Lines

Sunday’s MLS game pits Orlando City vs LA Galaxy at Exploria Stadium in a can’t-miss soccer show. Neither team can afford to drop any more points and given the Orlando City vs LA Galaxy odds, it’s difficult to predict where this game might go. However, our soccer experts did the research and are happy to provide you with the following Orlando City vs LA Galaxy betting tips.

Draw or LA Galaxy

Sure, Orlando City will have the home-field support for this clash but did it matter much in the last couple of games at home? It seems that the advantage at Exploria Stadium is working in favor of the visitors with Orlando City losing all three games at home. The last match was versus coach Wayne Rooney’s inconsistent DC United. Even they thrashed Orlando City 1-3. And LA Galaxy’s attacking might is far more impressive than what DC United have to offer.

Chicharito to Score Anytime

Chicharito’s desire to prove he’s still in top form is what Greg Vanney’s side benefited from the most last week when Austin came to visit at Dignity Health Sports Park. The former Manchester United striker opened the score in the 54th minute of the game with a lovely shot that Brad Stuver couldn’t catch.

Seeing as Chicharito was one of the top finishers in the 2022 MLS race, it’s completely logical for us to assume he’ll be among the scorers at Exploria Stadium this week.

Orlando City odds: +122 – 46.5%

Draw odds: +250 – 23.5%

LA Galaxy odds: +220 – 30.0%

Winless LA Galaxy are the underdogs in this MLS race. Team captain Chicharito and his colleagues barely have a 30.0% probability to win while Orlando City are the expected winners with a solid 46.5% win probability. Surely, if everything goes according to plan, the Lions will get the three points but we expect Chicharito to score at +188 (41.2%) as a goal from LA Galaxy’s main man is long overdue.

Orlando City vs LA Galaxy Lineups & Team News

Orlando City

After the 13th-minute Taxiarchis Fountas opener last week, Duncan McGuire didn’t need too much time to make the score 1-1. His lovely 23rd-minute goal gave the Lions hopes which dissipated early in the second half when Donovan Pines gave DC United the lead with former Liverpool star Christian Benteke hammering the last nail in Orlando City’s coffin for the final 1-3 score.

Predicted lineup – Gallese (GK), Carlos, Jansson, Schlegel, Gonzalez, Araujo, Pereyra, Angulo, Torres, Ojeda & McGuire

LA Galaxy

Javier Hernandez and Riqui Puig led LA Galaxy to a much-needed 2-0 win over Austin last week. It was the sort of performance coach Greg Vanney has been searching for the past two months. La Galaxy had more possession, more shots, and more set-piece opportunities and rightfully earned the three points at home.

Predicted lineup – Klinsmann (GK), Aude, Neal, Caceres, Calegari, Boyd, Delgado, Brugman, Costa, Chicharito & Jovelcic
