MLS Analyst Preview: Orlando City vs Atlanta United

MLS Friday features Atlanta United -- in its inaugural season -- heading to Florida for a matchup with Orlando City. Orlando opened as slight favorites to win on the money line (-113), with just a single point separating the two sides in the standings.

Atlanta heads into Friday’s nationally televised matchup having won three in a row by a combined score of 7-4. Orlando, however, hasn’t been all that great over the last month. They fell short 3-1 to Toronto at home the last time out.

Get this - Orlando has won just two of their last 14 matches overall, falling down to the No. 6 spot in the East after a strong start to the regular season. They're still 6-2-3 at home and can make some ground over the next few weeks with multiple matchups vs Atlanta -- currently in the No. 4 spot.

Both teams have a very open, free style of play and should treat the fans with plenty of shots on target. I'll take the OVER.
