Atlanta United failed to win both their last two matches and will now play their final match of the season. They will play host to New England on Sunday, who also booked their ticket to the playoffs. Atlanta United can only fight to remain at the 2nd spot, while New England can potentially move up a spot.

Spread: Atlanta United -1
Total: 3.5 Goals
Atlanta United (17-12-4) are coming off a 1-1 draw on the road against Montreal Impact last week. They were steadily in charge of the match, and also took the lead at the start of the second half. But their opponents pulled even towards the end of the match for the final 1-1 draw. Atlanta United have not been very good lately, winning just two of their last six (2-3-1). Atlanta United are sitting at the 2nd spot of the Eastern Conference with 55 points, just as many as Philadelphia below them. The two teams will fight for the 2nd spot of the Conference. Atlanta United have the 2nd best home record in the Conference (11-2-3), scoring 33 and conceding just 13 goals. Moreover, they have won eight of their last nine matches there.
On the other hand, New England (11-10-12) did a really good job to beat New York City by 0-2 at home last week. They were lucky enough, and scored two goals in the second half to record a nice win. That was their first win after a five-match win-less streak (0-1-4). New England are now sitting at the 7th spot of the Eastern Conference with 45 points, two behind Toronto. They have already clinched their playoff spot and will fight for a better placement. New England have been quite mediocre on the road so far (3-5-8) and haven’t won any of their last five (0-1-4). But they scored at least twice in six of their last eight away matches.
Atlanta United beat New England by 2-0 on the road earlier in the season. They are still undefeated against New England (3-0-2), keeping three clean sheets. Moreover, they have won both previous matches against New England in this venue. I expect New England to score in this match, so I will take the Over 3.5 Goals here.
