Orlando City SC betting is a growing form of Major League Soccer betting in the United States. The team is one of the newest in the league, having joined the Eastern Conference in 2015, and has not any standout seasons since joining. The team even finished second to last in the league in 2018, pretty much voiding any chance of winning any championship gold for the season. That said, it doesn’t mean that the team does not present any worthwhile opportunities to make some quick cash with bets.

What You’ll Find In Our Orlando City SC Guide
Orlando City SC is one of a handful of relatively new teams in the league, which means that they are very hard to bet on. As previously mentioned, thus far, they haven’t really posted any good performances, but they could possibly become one of the best teams in the league. We don’t think that this will happen this season though.
Overall, they are performing better than they did last season, but not well enough to have a playoff spot guaranteed. For this reason, we don’t really recommend placing a future bet on the side to win the MLS Cup. In fact, wouldn’t even recommend placing any moneylines on the team as their form has been so inconsistent. If you really want to bet on the team, we recommend that you stick to totals and or prop bets – those which aren’t so result driven.

Orlando City SC was announced as the 21st addition to the MLS in 2013. The team played their first game in 2015 against another expansion team, New York City FC. Former UEFA Champion’s League winner Kaká was announced as their first designated player. The team didn’t perform that badly in their first season finishing 14th overall and just outside the playoff bracket.
Since then, the team suffered a load of bad results, with coach Adrian Heath being fired in 2016. Jason Kries was announced to replace Heath and results did improve but the team missed the playoffs once again.
The team recorded their worst year in 2018, when they finished second to last in the overall standing and setting a new record for overall goals conceded. The team has yet to make it to the playoffs but the drive seems there. Well, we wouldn’t recommend betting on the team currently, they are a prospect for the future.
