An Inter Miami team without Lionel Messi will try to earn three points when they square off against Orlando City on Sunday at Exploria Stadium in Orlando. Messi sat out last week's loss at Atlanta United with muscle fatigue and was subbed off in the first half of Inter Miami's 4-0 victory over Toronto FC on Wednesday. Manager Tata Martino already has ruled Messi out of Sunday's showdown, saying the superstar is dealing with "old scar tissue." The Herons enter Sunday in 14th in the Eastern Conference with 31 points and need to finish in the top nine to make the playoffs. 

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The Lions are -130 favorites in the latest Orlando City vs. Inter Miami odds, with the Herons the +310 underdogs. A draw is priced at +295, and the over/under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Why you should back Orlando City

The Lions face an Inter Miami side that may not have its focus entirely on Sunday's match. Three days after playing Orlando City, the Herons play in the final of the U.S. Open Cup against the Houston Dynamo, trying to win just the second trophy in franchise history. Then, Inter Miami have matches against New York City FC, Chicago Fire, and FC Cincinnati.

In addition, Orlando have a proven playmaker in Facundo Torres. The 23-year-old midfielder from Uruguay leads the team and ranks ninth in the league in goals (12) while also dishing out six assists. In 52 regular season MLS games over the last two seasons, he has 20 goals and 14 assists. See picks at SportsLine

Why you should back Inter Miami

Leonardo Campana is on a roll for the Herons. The 23-year-old forward from Ecuador has scored five goals in his last four matches and leads the team in goals for the season (nine) in MLS play. Earlier this month, he scored a brace in back-to-back matches, bringing his total to three braces on the year. He also is one of just four MLS players with multiple Player of the Matchday honors this season.

In addition, Inter Miami have proven they can win without Messi. On Wednesday against Toronto, Messi was subbed off in the 37th minute with the match scoreless. The Herons proceeded to score four goals, including two from Robert Taylor, to earn a crucial three points. See picks at SportsLine
