Major League Soccer

Only four teams in Major League Soccer have managed to collect the maximum number of points in the opening two rounds.
Atlanta United and Sporting Kansas City are among them, so their head to head clash is match of the week. It’s played this Saturday in Georgia, and fans on both sides have high expectations.
When it comes to the odds and bookies’ favourite, hosts were given significant advantage. Atlanta United are currently priced at 1.90 to win this match, which is not unusual for squad that had 12 home wins in the previous season.

Atlanta United vs Sporting Kansas City Prediction
Team from Georgia is currently 4th favourite to win this year’s edition of Major League Soccer outright. They are well-composed squad with some former European stars like Josef Martinez and Brad Guzan. Last season Atlanta United were stopped in the Conference Finals, losing to Toronto FC at this stadium.
Opening back-to-back victories against Nashville SC and Cincinnati FC are definitely a great sign, and we will back this team to secure another three points this Saturday.
The main reason behind this is Sporting’s pre-season period. They were unable to clinch one victory in the last three test games against Real Salt Lake, Phoenix Rising and New York Red Bulls.
Besides home victory, we will go for 2 or 3 goals total bet as the alternative option. Last four Atlanta’s games have ended like that.
