Vela, the league's top scorer and reigning MVP, has reportedly elected to stay home with his pregnant wife and three-year-old son. 

Robinson's reason for departing Orlando are unrelated to Covid-19, according to the Sun Sentinel. 

Miami was coming in at +119, Orlando City +205 and the draw at +240.

Robinson, the No. 1 pick in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft, did not test positive for COVID-19 and left Lake Buena Vista over the weekend for personal reasons.

MLS will be the largest of the USA sports leagues making their triumphant return since the coronavirus pandemic shuttered most sports back in Mid-March.

Los Angeles FC is a -161 favorite versus Houston +360 for their Monday matchup.
