We get a round of full slate midweek fixtures in MLS once again this week including FC Cincinnati hosting Nashville SC at TQL Stadium. These two combatants have met 11 times, with both clubs defeating each other twice while seven times they have shared the points.

FC Cincinnati extended their winning streak to seven straight last weekend winning a frantic encounter against Toronto FC. Sergio Santos was the hero scoring three minutes into stoppage to secure the 4-3 win for Cincinnati. It wasn’t a defensive display by The Orange and Blue as they conceded three goals for the first time in 2024.

Meanwhile, Nashville SC is coming off a cagey affair that saw them split the points with CF Montreal on the road in a scoreless draw. The Boys in Gold have had a rough stretch of late only collecting two wins in their last 10. Saturday's performance was the fourth time this campaign that Nashville failed to find the back of the net.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favorite picks for FC Cincinnati vs. Nashville SC.

FC Cincinnati vs. Nashville SC Betting Predictions

FC Cincinnati Preview

FC Cincinnati are following the same footsteps this campaign like the did in last years so far. Last season's Supporters' Shield winners, an annual award given to the team with the best regular season record only trail Inter Miami by one point with a game in hand. They are getting it done on both sides of the ball but more noticeably on the backend, currently, one of three clubs in the entire competition to be allowing an average of less than a goal per match.

Leading the way up front for The Orange and Blue is Luciano Acosta. The 29-year-old had bagged seven goals and has added nine assists in 15 MLS matches. With his team’s breakout performance last weekend, Acosta disappeared on the stat sheet for the first time since March 30 failing to get a goal or an assist.

Nashville SC Preview

The Boys in Yellow are currently sitting in 11th place in the Eastern Conference table with a total of 16 points. Nashville shares a league-high seven draws with LA Galaxy and St. Louis City SC. The Coyotes are struggling to hit the back of the net through 14 games only averaging 1.2 goals per game.

MLS Golden Boot winner in 2022 is off to a sluggish start this year as Hany Mukhtar has only amassed three goals in 12 appearances. The 29-year-old is getting his fair share of chances as the striker has 37 total shots in 986 minutes played. Last weekend's scoreless draw saw Mukhtar play in all 90 minutes, finishing with one shot on target and going 88 percent in accurate passes going 44-for-50.

FC Cincinnati vs. Nashville SC - My Pick

This may be the so-called trap game with FC Cincinnati not listed at a higher price than what they should be considering the mismatch of how these clubs rank in the table. Cincinnati has shown more courage on the road than at home, that said it isn’t like their a poor home club as they currently occupy the ninth-best home record in MLS.

On the other hand, the away clashes for Nashville SC have been a nightmare. The club has conceded 10 goals through five away fixtures. Making matters worse is their goal-scoring capabilities on the road only registering two. Can’t see how Nashville will outshine Cincinnati in this situation considering the hosts have given up four goals in seven MLS home games at TQL stadium.
