Orlando have made a good start to the MLS campaign and will be looking to continue that when taking on a Houston Dynamo team who can move into the playoff spots with three points.

Orlando City – Will Orlando return to winning ways after some indifferent form of late?

Orlando reached the playoffs last season but their challenge was ended at the first hurdle in the post-season – losing 3-1 away to Nashville. Oscar Preja will now be looking to build on the fact they have made it to the playoffs in both seasons since he took charge, and progress to become realistic challengers for their first ever MLS Cup. This campaign certainly started in positive fashion, losing only three of their first 10 games. They’ve lost a couple more in their last five but are still well placed sitting in fifth coming into this match,

City are four points off leaders and current champions New York City in the Eastern Conference, although they have played a couple more games than that rival.

Orlando City HT/FT
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 14 June)
Pareja will be hoping this game can be the catalyst for improved home form overall. Orlando have struggled in front of their own fans for a sustained period of time, winning only three of their last 10, and more concerning of late is they have lost three of their last five, conceding 10 goals in those losses.
Ercan Kara has had a decent start to life in the MLS. The striker joined from Rapid Vienna in the close season and has netted four times, including two in the last three matches.

Houston Dynamo Preview – Can Dynamo record just a third away win in 32 MLS games?

Houston had a season to forget last season, finishing bottom of the Western Conference and a full 18 points outside the playoff spots. It is a far cry from when winning back to back title on entry to the MLS back in 2006 and 2007. However, it’s now four straight seasons where they have missed out on the post-season, so it is an obvious objective for Paulo Nagamura to achieve having taken over in January.

The Brazilian has made a reasonable start to life in MLS with Houston in a much more encouraging position now compared to recent seasons. Dynamo are one point outside the playoff positions and can move into them this weekend with a win.

It would have been a frustrating international break for Houston on the back of a 3-0 loss away to Real Salt Lake. That is the latest in a series of really poor form on the road which stretches back for three years. Their last 50 away games in the MLS have seen them win just four. The league is notorious for poor travellers but that is a dire record.

The South American duo of Sebastian Ferreira and Darwin Quintero have combined for 10 of Houston’s 17 goals in the MLS so far. Only seven players have actually managed a goal in the league for Dynamo so far.

Orlando City vs Houston Dynamo Betting Advice

A win here would give Orlando further confidence that they are well placed for a productive season in the Eastern Conference whilst their visitors will be raring to go after that disappointing defeat last time out. This will be the first time the teams have met since 2019 and the first in Orlando since 2018 – so it’s not often they actually face off against each other.


Key Facts –  Orlando City vs Houston Dynamo Betting Tip

  • Orlando have won only three of their last 10 home games in the MLS
  • Houston’s 3-1 win against Inter Miami was their first away win to an Eastern Conference team since 2019
  • This will be the first meeting between the teams in nearly three years (2-1 home win for Houston)


It is hard to escape how poor Houston have been on the road and despite Orlando being better away than at home this season, I’m taking them to win here and continue to keep pace with the top teams in their conference.
