According to the best soccer betting odds sites, Inter Miami are the home favorites at 2.0 (Evs). A draw is offered at 3.60 (13/5), while Cincinnati are the away underdogs at 3.50 (5/2) to beat the Herons.
Inter Miami CF
Inter Miami are coming off a big 4-1 away loss to the Chicago Fire. Martinez scored the only goal for the Herons in that game, as Messi and Alba were both absent. Inter Miami’s chances of getting to the playoffs are decreasing each week, as they haven’t won any of their last four matches, and now they are in a must-win situation.
FC Cincinnati are coming off a 1-2 loss to the New York Red Bulls. The team’s top goal scorer, Acosta, scored the only goal for the Orange and Blue in that game. That loss broke the four-game unbeaten streak for Cincinnati, as they have been playing well lately and should win this match, especially if Messi doesn’t play.

Inter Miami vs Cincinnati Predictions
Cincinnati to Win or Draw @ 1.80 (4/5)
This is a revenge game for Cincinnati after Inter Miami knocked them out of the 2023 US Open Cup. The Herons are on a four-game winless streak without Messi and Alba. FC Cincinnati have lost only two of their last 11 away matches, so this is a good opportunity for them to keep their four-game unbeaten streak as well.
The latest MLS odds for that Cincinnati team are really enticing. They are in much better form, and Inter Miami are most likely going to be without Messi here.
Aaron Boupendza to Score @ 3.0 (2/1)
Aaron Boupendza has been playing well since joining Cincinnati this July. He scored three goals in the last five games for the team, and the odds of him scoring here are good, especially with how bad the Miami defense is playing right now. The Herons have conceded seven goals in their last three MLS matches, so Boupendza will have his chances in the away game.
