It is top versus bottom in the Eastern conference as high flying Atlanta United will take on DC United.

Atlanta might be top but they have struggled slightly in recent weeks gaining just 4 points from their last possible 9. They lost to FC Dallas 3-2 and followed that up with a win against Philadelphia Union that put them back on track but then could only draw 1-1 against Seattle Sounders who have been struggling in the Western conference.

Still Atlanta will be the favourites to win this game. As for DC United they have been rooted to the bottom of the league for most of the campaign. But not all is what it seems and we must remember that the side has only played 15 games compared to Atlanta who have played 21. In theory DC United with the same games played could be sitting in a playoff position right now instead of being 13 points behind so they have everything to play for.

Recent form for the club has picked up too with a confidence building 3-1 win over Vancouver Whitecaps and that victory was richly deserved. Indeed for a team that lies bottom they have only lost 1 game from their past four.

Atlanta United vs DC United: Head to Head

  • From the last 4 meetings DC United have won 3.
  • From the most recent games there is a 75% chance to see over 2.5 goals.

Atlanta United vs DC United: Prediction

This is set to be a very interesting game and we will not back the home team to win partly because DC United seem to be finding their feet and they will be boosted by their new arrival of Wayne Rooney.

There are goals in this team and our main bet will be to see both teams to score. We will also back the half time result for small stakes in the away teams favour.

Atlanta United vs DC United: Bet Tips

  • Both teams to score at 1.57
  • Half time result: DC United to be winning at 6.00.
