Atlanta United are at the top of the Eastern Conference in the MLS and they will look to remain in that position as they take on New York Red Bulls at home. This is a game between two sides in the same conference and due to that reason, it should be a very intense contest since the result means more.

New York Red Bulls sit midtable in the Eastern Conference but with games in hand, they have the ability to challenge for the top spots. The Red Bulls have won their past three games and will be entering this contest high on confidence. This will be one of the biggest tests that the visitors will have all season since they are taking on a top side away from home. The positive for New York Red Bulls is that this game is happening while the team is running hot and that confidence might be massive in getting the side a result.

On the other side of the coin, Atlanta United have only lost twice all season and they have a very good record as they enter this game. This is a top side, filled with some very good players. The team can score, defend and control the ball. These three aspects are crucial for a successful team and I think that they have shown this well. As far as this game is concerned, I think that New York Red Bulls will test the hosts but at home, Atlanta United should be too strong.

As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting the best price but I think we can bet on the home side. A larger bet is suggested since the odds are short and it is the only way to make profit.   

 

Pick:
Atlanta United
