Spread: DC United -0.75

Total: 2.75 Goals

DC United (1-0-1) should be feeling lucky they got a point from their away match against New York City FC. Their opponents were better throughout the whole match, in most aspects of the game. DC United struggled to have shots on target and their opponents were really pushing. The two teams eventually split the points in a goal-less draw. In their season opener, DC United had a pretty easy job when they beat Atlanta United by 0-2. DC United are now sitting 2nd in the Eastern Conference with 4 points, in a tie with Columbus Crew.

On the other hand, Real Salt Lake (1-0-1) started the season with a really frustrating 1-1 draw on the road against Houston. They pretty much dominated their opponents throughout the whole match but were unable to take the three points. Last week they played host to Vancouver Whitecaps and won by a slim 0-1. It was a really balanced match between the two sides but Rusnak scored a penatly kick at the 21st minute for the final 1-2. Real Salt Lake are now 6th in the Western Conference with four points.

Real Salt Lake have been excellent in this match-up lately, losing just once in their last five (3-1-1). Last season they won by 2-3 at home against DC United and also won by 1-0 in this venue in the season before that.

DC United have been tremendous as hosts against Real Salt Lake over the years (6-1-3). DC United were great at home last season and they are also great as hosts against Real Salt Lake. I will go with the home team to cover the spread here.
