Lionel Messi & Inter Miami vs Orlando City Props

Lionel Messi is expected to have a bigger impact in his first full MLS season after arriving in the United States last July. He is among the favorites to win the Golden Boot and is coming off scoring his first of the season. At -105, he is listed at great value considering he is the primary penalty kick taker for the team and should be considered to score first , to score twice , and even a hat-trick if things fall into place.

Former Liverpool and FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is also on goal watch. The prolific goalscorer is waiting on his first MLS goal and is at a good price to get it. Ambitious bettors should also consider Suarez to score first as he is a primary target for Miami.

Other Miami names to consider in scoring should be Robert Taylor and Julian Gressel . Miami has yet to have a big scoring night but this could be the occasion, playing on national TV at home.

Orlando City has a few names to consider as well in the scoring department. Former Seattle Sounders star Nicolas Lodeiro is a recent addition and a PK option on top of his creative attacking style. Lodeiro, Duncan McGuire , Facundo Torres , Ramiro Enrique , and Kyle Smith have scored in CONCACAF Champions Cup action despite the team’s scoreless outing in their opening league match last week.

Inter Miami vs Orlando City Analysis and Prediction

The last time Messi suited up for Inter Miami against Orlando City was last August. On that occasion, the Argentine icon delivered a double against his club’s in-state MLS rival in the Leagues Cup. Messi missed the next match against the Lions, a 1-1 draw where David Ruiz scored the opening goal in late September.

There will be two Uruguayans in the spotlight as former teammates Luis Suarez and Nicolas Lodeiro meet. Both have good odds of having their respective names on the scoreboard. They are also players that can provide a special singular moment that wins the game.

In this case, it’s hard to ignore Inter Miami’s home advantage. When Lionel Messi has participated in a home match, the IMCF holds a record of 6 wins, 1 loss, and 1 draw. The Miami MLS club is undefeated at home in official matches when the eight-time Ballon d’Or has gone full ninety.

Pick: Miami -1 (+100 at time of publishing), Messi to score (-105 at time of publishing)
