FC Dallas vs. Orlando City SC - Match Predictions

Home cookin' on Independence Day should spell some good news for the Hoops

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The numbers might not back me up, but FC Dallas always seems to struggle in matches with large crowds. Let us hope that is not the case as Kaka brings his international pedigree into town with a very entertaining Orlando City team.

After last week's victory against Real Salt Lake, the top of the standings has shifted slightly, but the rest of the gang is gaining in a hurry with four folks getting the predictions spot on including Jason who has been out of town for a few weeks and gave me his predictions in advance before he left.

Cody 20

How will FC Dallas fare tonight? Will the fireworks be both on and off the field? Here are our predictions!
