Orlando look on the short side for their home clash with New York City on Sunday night.
Orlando City v New York City- Sunday 00:00, Sky Sports 2
Orlando are down in 7th in the Eastern Conference having only won five of their 25 games all season, but New York are flying high up in 2nd, just two points behind leaders Toronto. Both these sides have lost seven times this term, but Orlando have had draw-it is with 13 stalemates already, while New York have managed to win 11 games, including seven of their last 11.
Orlando have been slow starters of late, trailing at the break in six of their last eight but only going on to lose three. They’ve only lost two of their 13 home games, but both of those defeats have come in their last two matches.
New York, conversely, have only lost two of their last 11 and just two of their last 10 on the road. With that in mind, and given the league standings of these two teams, Orlando look very much on the short side at around 2.25 and we simply have to take them on. We’re backing New York City Draw No Bet in this one and given Orlando’s poor first half record, we’ll also take New York to lead at the break.
