Tips

Chicago Fire  @-125

Chicago should be in good form after nearly stunning the champion Seattle Sounders pre-pandemic.

Nashville arrives in Orlando with a number of positive tests for Covid-19 and will likely be a bit in disarray. 

Chicago Fire's form hasn't been good, as the team has won only 2 of their last 19 away matches (Major League Soccer)

In their last 7 games in Major League Soccer, Chicago Fire have been undefeated on 6 occasions

The big question for Chicago: How the midfield pieces fit will bear watching. If Gimenez and Stojanovic -- along with holdovers Djordje Mihailovic and Przemyslaw Frankowski -- can provide a steady supply line to new forward Robert Beric, the Fire could do some damage.

The big question for Nashville: Can Hany Mukhtar and Randall Leal carry Nashville's attack? Neither player was what one would consider high-profile when they were acquired, but they've showed some flashes of quality in the early going. NSC will need more of that if it is to advance.

What More to Know

With reports emerging that expansion team Nashville had five players test positive for COVID-19, ESPN’s Stefano Fusaro says it’s likely the July 8 match will be pushed back, though no news yet as of Monday afternoon.

There is a drive-in watch party slated for this match at Soldiers Field in Chicago, which will of course be postponed should the matchup be postponed. 

Walker Zimmerman has the lone MLS goal for Nashville SC at the moment while Nashville has 21 attempts at goal and 8 shots on target as a team through their first two games of the season.

Robert Beric and Jonathan Bornstein each have a goal this season for Chicago, with the Fire having 18 attempts at goal and 9 shots on target through their first two matches played this season.

FanDuel "Act of God" Clause Could Cancel College Football Futures

Many sportsbooks have stopped taking bets on college football in light of the Big 10 and PAC 12 cancelling their fall seasons.

With the Big 10 and PAC 12 officially cancelling their college football slate this fall, one has to wonder how this will impact the sportsbooks bottom line.  Of course, attempts to play in the spring would likely more than make up for any losses down the road.

The Big 10 Presidents were set to meet at 10:30 am ET to discuss whether they will have fall football.  Should they decide not to, the Pac-12 is likely to follow.  Among the remaining three Power 5 teams, the Big 12 has stayed quiet while both the SEC and AAC are leaning more towards playing.  Throwing a monkey wrench into the situation, some Big 10 teams like Nebraska have said they are willing to play elsewhere should the conference cancel.
