The Line: Atlanta -275 / DC United +650/ Draw +400 -- Over/Under: 2.5 See the Latest Odds
Wayne Rooney made his debut for DC United last weekend and had a big impact on his team. The English international contributed with one assist and showed that he has lots to offer the MLS. This weekend Wayne Rooney and his DC United side travel away from home to Atlanta where they will take on Atlanta United. While these teams are on opposite sides of the ladder, they are both filled with top quality players so we should get a good game.
Atlanta United were held to a 1-1 draw in their last game against a 10 man Seattle Sounders teams. That was not a good result for the league leaders and they will look to immediately rectify that by winning against DC United. A few weeks ago this was an easy game for Atlanta United but this might not be the case since the addition of Wayne Rooney seems to have changed the morale and atmosphere of the club. Atlanta United will need to play well if they wish to win this football match.

On the other side of the coin, DC United will hope to get some points and move up the ladder. While playoffs are unlikely this season, the team will look to play good football so they can build for the future. This will be a big test for Wayne Rooney and his team since they are up against the best team in the conference and will be away from home.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that DC United will cause a major upset and beat Atlanta United. The home side has been a little poor recently while the visitors are looking very sharp at the moment. We are getting a great price to wager on DC United winning so that is the wager which I am going to suggest. I am also expecting lots of goals since both teams can score so the over 2.5 goals is also a good option.
