Market: Atlanta win
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet365
Looking to carry on their impressive start to the new MLS season, Atlanta will travel to the Gillette Stadium to face off with New England Revolution on Thursday.
For the hosts, after failing to land a top half finish in the Eastern Conference last season, New England will be looking for a more successful campaign this time around. After 12 games so far this season, New England have won five, drawn three and lost four, scoring 21 and conceding 18 in return. With a points tally of 18 out of a possible 36, New England currently sit sixth in the Eastern Conference and are already seven points adrift of their guests on Thursday. As for their recent form, New England have now won just one in their last four, losing two and drawing one. It will be their defensive issues that will be the most cause for New England, the hosts have now conceded two or more goals in three of their last four.
As for the visitors, after landing a fourth-place finish and finishing 14 points adrift of Eastern Conference champions Toronto last year, Atlanta have enjoyed a stellar start to the new campaign. After 12 games this year, Atlanta have won eight, drawn one and lost three, scoring 26 and conceding 16 in return, the visitors hold the joint best-attacking stats in the whole of the MLS. With a points tally of 25, Atlanta currently top for Eastern Conference with their goal difference keeping them above Columbus. However, with a two-games in hand over Columbus, a win on Thursday will widen the gap. As for their recent form, although Atlanta have lost two of their last three, the visitors have won their last five away matches in a row, scoring 10 times.
