This weekend, Charlotte and Chicago Fire meet in MLS action at the Bank of America Stadium. With just two points separating the pair in the table, this all-Eastern Conference contest could go either way in North Carolina. Being the hosts, Christian Lattanzio’s side are the favourites, but Ezra Hendrickson’s boys will back themselves to return to Illinois with a positive result in the bag. Check out the best odds and tips in our in-depth betting preview.

Charlotte Preview – Can the Crown make it two wins in two?

Charlotte have had a mixed bag of results so far this season. The North Carolina outfit have picked up nine wins, suffered 12 defeats and have drawn twice. Christian Lattanzio’s boys are in seventh position in the Eastern Conference table right now, collecting 29 points from 23 games.

The Crown have been in patchy form of late, winning three and losing two of their last five. Since their last draw, Charlotte have won three and lost four of seven. After back-to-back defeats to Inter Miami and Toronto, they bounced back with an emphatic 3-0 home victory over DC United in midweek.

Our betting prediction:
Draw & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1402 GMT, Friday 5 August)

Following up Thursday’s win over DC is crucial for Charlotte. The bookies have the home win this weekend nicely priced at 5/4.

Chicago Fire Preview – Can in-form Fire leave Charlotte with a positive result?

Chicago Fire have had an up and down 2022 season up until now. The Illinois club have picked up just 27 points from 23 games. Only six sides have accumulated fewer points so far, with Ezra Hendrickson’s team winning seven, drawing six and losing ten.

Their form has improved drastically over the past few weeks, however, as Chicago Fire have won three and drawn one of the last four matches to move away from the bottom. Before drawing 0-0 with Atlanta United last time out, Fire picked up successive MLS victories over Toronto, Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps.

In-form Chicago will be eager to keep up their unbeaten run with maximum points at the Bank of America Stadium this weekend. Despite their good form, the visitors are the second favourites at 21/10.


Charlotte vs Chicago Fire Betting Advice

After picking up an impressive win over Wayne Rooney’s DC United in their last outing, Charlotte will be looking to follow that up with another good performance and result in this one.

However, in-form Chicago, who have taken ten points from the last 12 on offer, will not be an easy nut to crack. Fire could be formidable opponents for the Crown this weekend.


Key Facts – Charlotte vs Chicago Fire Betting Tip

  • Charlotte picked up a 3-0 home win last time out
  • Chicago have won three and drawn one of their previous four
  • This will be the first ever meeting between the two teams


Charlotte do not draw many, but we fancy these two evenly matched teams to play out a stalemate in North Carolina. The draw at half time and full time has caught the eye at 9/2.

German defender Rafael Czichos has been an unlikely hero for Chicago in recent games, netting three in his last five outings. Take a punt on Czichos to score anytime in this one at the big price of 14/1.
