Atlanta United will take on Orlando City in the MLS. This should be a closely contested game between two sides in the Eastern Conference. The game will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Atlanta meaning that Atlanta United will be playing at home.

Atlanta United have had a great season and are looking like a side that can win the top prizes at the end of the season. It will be important that they can keep winning to maintain their position on the ladder. Games played at home are crucial to win since traveling away from home is a hard task for any side in the MLS. As far as talent is concerned, Atalanta United have much better players than their opponents.

Ever since the departure of Kaka, Orlando City seems to be lacking leadership. The Florida based side has not been playing well this season and the MLS dream is slipping away from them. It will be important for Orlando City to get a result since points in interconference games will give them a chance of climbing up the standing. It will be important that Orlando City plays well as a team since the squads are not even in terms of talent.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Atlanta United wins this game. The home side will have the fans behind them. In addition to that, they have better players and are in better form. We are getting a good enough price to wager on Atlanta United to win this game and as a result, it is the best wager for this game. This should also be a high scoring game so the over 2.5 goals bet is also acceptable.

 

Pick:
Atlanta United
