Wednesday's Major League Soccer predictions including Orlando City vs. Inter Miami

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Major League Soccer fixtures, including Orlando City vs. Inter Miami.

Cincinnati vs. Atlanta (Thursday, 12.30am)

In-form FC Cincinnati will be looking to extend their winning streak when they host Atlanta United at TQL Stadium on Thursday for matchday 13 of the 2023-24 Major League Soccer season.

The home side heads into this weekend's clash on a run of four consecutive wins, while the visitors have not registered a victory in their last six league matches.

We say: FC Cincinnati 3-1 Atlanta United

Cincinnati are in scintillating form at the moment and will feel it is the right time to get their first ever home win over Atlanta, who struggle on the road. We expect the home side to win this one.

DC United vs. NY Red Bulls (Thursday, 12.30am)

DC United will be looking to continue their solid run of form in the MLS when they welcome the New York Red Bulls to Audi Field for a gamweek 13 clash in midweek.

Both these teams earned important victories over the weekend, which took the hosts up to third place and moved the visitors up to seventh in the Eastern Conference standings.

We say: DC United 2-2 New York Red Bulls

Both these sides have been in good goal-scoring from this season and are coming off positive results over the weekend. Based on recent form, this looks like a very even match on paper, and we feel there will be nothing to separate the sides at the full-time whistle.

Montreal vs. Columbus Crew (Thursday, 12.30am)

Coaching friends will become foes on Wednesday when CF Montreal host the Columbus Crew at Saputo Stadium in the first of a series of MLS midweek affairs.

Le CFM squandered an early lead versus Inter Miami on Saturday, losing 3-2 and falling to 12th in the Eastern Conference, three points below the reigning league champions, who are eighth following a 2-1 loss at home to FC Cincinnati.

We say: CF Montreal 1-1 Columbus Crew

Something tells us that Montreal will be extra motivated for this match, not just because of their collapse last weekend, but also to give their current manager an ego boost against their former boss.

That said, the Crew have tremendous resilience and have fared well in intimidating environments all season, which is why we project they will nab a point.

Orlando City vs. Inter Miami (Thursday, 12.30am)

A state rivalry in Florida will be renewed on Wednesday when Orlando City welcome Inter Miami to Inter and Co Stadium in MLS action.

The Lions ended a three-match winless run over the weekend, claiming a narrow 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Union, while the Herons won for a fifth successive time in this competition, defeating CF Montreal 3-2.

We say: Orlando City 2-4 Inter Miami

There are plenty of holes in the Miami backline, but being scored on seems to pick up their play, and we expect to see another strong reaction from that veteran group on Wednesday.

Philadelphia vs. NY City (Thursday, 12.30am)

Philadelphia Union will look to bring an end to a dismal run of form in the MLS when they take on New York City FC in gameweek 13 at Subaru Park in midweek.

The hosts will enter the match in ninth place with 14 points after 11 games, while the visitors are fifth and one of three teams currently tied on 17 points after 12 games.

We say: Philadelphia Union 2-2 New York City FC

While New York City come into this fixture with momentum, they have struggled in defence on the road are yet to register their first away clean sheet this season. Philadelphia, on the other hand, have scored two goals in all but one of their home games this season but have shipped eight in their last three alone.

There should be no shortage of goalmouth action in this one, but we feel these teams will cancel each other out by the final whistle.

Austin vs. Houston (Thursday, 1.30am)

Austin FC will host Houston Dynamo at Q2 Stadium on Thursday for Matchday 13 of the 2023-24 Major League Soccer season, hoping to avoid a three-game winless streak.

Both sides are separated by a single point and position in the table, with the hosts needing all three points to climb into the automatic playoff places.

We say: Austin FC 2-1 Houston Dynamo

Austin knows they have to quickly bounce back from defeat in their last match and they will feel this is a perfect opportunity for that against a side they have beaten in all the four times they have hosted this fixture. We expect a home win here.

Chicago Fire vs. Charlotte FC (Thursday, 1.30am)

Aiming to pick up their first win in five, Chicago Fire host MLS Cup playoff hopefuls Charlotte FC at Soldier Field on Thursday morning.

The hosts are second from bottom in the Eastern Conference, while the visitors are currently in sixth as they fight for guaranteed qualification to the MLS Cup playoffs.

We say: Chicago Fire 0-2 Charlotte FC

The visitors come into this game in much superior form compared to the hosts, who have failed to win in any of their last five outings, and we expect their search for victory to continue with a win for Charlotte FC here.

Chicago Fire have scored just once in their last five while the visitors have kept back-to-back clean sheets coming into this one.

Minnesota Utd vs. LA Galaxy (Thursday, 1.30am)

High-flying Minnesota United set out in search of a fourth victory on the bounce when they go head to head with Los Angeles Galaxy on Wednesday.

Greg Vanney's side have failed to win their last three visits to Allianz Field since August 2021 and will head into the midweek clash looking to end this poor run.

We say: Minnesota United 2-1 Los Angeles Galaxy

The last six meetings between Minnesota United and Los Angeles Galaxy have produced a combined 30 goals and we anticipate another action-packed contest with plenty of goalmouth action. Minnesota's home advantage gives them a slight upper hand here and we fancy them to come away with the desired result.

Nashville vs. Toronto (Thursday, 1.30am)

The first midweek fixture of the 2024 Major League Soccer (MLS) campaign will feature Toronto visiting GEODIS Park on Wednesday to battle Nashville SC.

The Boys in Gold suffered a 1-0 defeat at Charlotte FC last weekend, while TFC snapped a five-match winning run in all competitions, losing 3-2 at home against New York City FC.

We say: Nashville SC 3-1 Toronto

It has been an extremely underwhelming campaign for the Boys in Gold thus far, but they seem to execute their tactics a lot better on their home turf, and we expect them to unlock a Toronto defence that still concede plenty of scoring opportunities.

St Louis City vs. Los Angeles (Thursday, 1.30am)

Los Angeles FC will be seeking to pick up their first away win of the new MLS campaign when they go head to head with St Louis City at Citypark on Wednesday.

The Miami outfit head into the midweek clash unbeaten in each of their seven home games across all competitions this term and will look to extend this impressive run.

We say: St Louis City 2-1 Los Angeles FC

St Louis City have enjoyed a solid start to the season and will fancy their chances on Wednesday as they take on a Los Angeles side whose form on the road is currently nothing to write home about. That said, we predict a cagey affair at Citypark, with St Louis claiming a narrow victory in front of their home supporters.

Colorado vs. Vancouver (Thursday, 2.30am)

In game two of their three-game MLS road trip, the Vancouver Whitecaps travel to Dick's Sporting Good Park in Commerce City to battle the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday.

These two sides are even on points this season with 18, with the Burgundy Boys losing 3-2 to the San Jose Earthquakes over the weekend, while Los Angeles FC handed the Caps a 3-0 defeat.

We say: Colorado Rapids 1-2 Vancouver Whitecaps

The Rapids may be a vastly improved side from a year ago, but they are still susceptible to the counter, as they showed last weekend.

Vancouver have plenty of quality attacking pieces like White and Ryan Gauld that are capable of exposing that vulnerability, which is why we project they will return to winning ways.

Salt Lake vs. Seattle (Thursday, 2.30am)

Top of the Western Conference Real Salt Lake take on 10th-placed Seattle Sounders at the Rio Tinto Stadium on Thursday Morning in the MLS.

The hosts are unbeaten in their last eight league matches, while the visitors have seen a recent upturn in form with two wins and a draw from their last three.

We say: Real Salt Lake 2-2 Seattle Sounders

While Salt Lake's form has seen a slight dip in recent outings Seattle's has massively improved ahead of this one, leading us to believe that the visitors will manage to snatch a point from their trip to face the league leaders.

Portland vs. Earthquakes (Thursday, 3.30am)

Two sides in contrasting forms face off at Providence Park on Wednesday as Portland Timbers entertain the challenge of San Jose Earthquakes.

The hosts are winless in nine games heading into this one, while their visitors will be looking to pick up a fourth straight victory across all competitions.

We say: Portland Timbers 2-1 San Jose Earthquakes

Thursday's clash between Portland Timbers and San Jose sees the two worst defensive teams go head-to-head, so we anticipate an open and end to end contest. We are also tipping the hosts to emerge victorious come the end of the 90 minutes.
