Orlando City have the chance to move to the top of MLS' Western Conference when they visit FC Cincinnati in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The Florida outfit are currently fourth but victory in Ohio would move them a point clear of current leaders New York FC.

The hosts, meanwhile, are sitting in eighth place but a win would move them firmly into the playoff positions.

FC Cincinnati vs Orlando City latest odds

Cincinnati have been in poor form in front of their own fans and their run of just two wins in 13 home league matches stretches back to September last year.

Pat Noonan's men are available at 6/5 (2.20) with bet365 to pick up all three points, while the visitors are offered at 11/5 (3.20) and the draw at 5/2 (3.50).

Orlando have lost just once on the road this season and have never lost in Cincinnati.

FC Cincinnati vs Orlando City first goal scorer

The hosts boast one of the top scorers in MLS this season with Brandon Vazquez having netted eight times this season, already doubling his total from the entire of the previous campaign.

The 23-year-old striker is available at 11/2 (6.50) to break the deadlock with Brazilian forward Brenner the favourite at 5/1 (6.00) despite not scoring yet this term.

The visitors' top scorer this year is Austrian international Ercan Kara with six strikes and he is available at 11/2 (6.50) to net first, while former Milan star Alexandre Pato can be backed at 7/1 (8.00).

FC Cincinnati vs Orlando City preview

Cincinnati have been consistent scorers this year netting in 13 of their 15 league clashes yet their defensive record is the third worst in the division having conceded 26 times.

Matches involving the Ohio side have been entertaining encounters, with their last five competitive fixtures producing 23 goals and another open game looks likely this weekend.

Orlando are on a nine-match scoring run in all competitions and on the road in MLS they have netted in 14 of their last 15 games, which makes backing a high-scoring clash at the TQL stadium look highly appealing.

FC Cincinnati vs Orlando City tips and predictions

Both teams to score is priced at 4/6 (1.65) but combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to 21/20 (2.05) which looks like an appealing option.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
