Both New England and Atlanta United have struggled mightily so far in the season. New England have struggled even more with just one win after six matches. They will now host Atlanta United on Saturday, who have not been much better either. They are clearly worse than last season but not all that bad.

Spread: New England Revolution +0.0
Total: 2.75 Goals
New England (1-4-1) are coming off yet another loss, a 0-1 on the road against Columbus Crew. It was actually a really weak performance from both sides. They both struggled to create chances and Columbus scored the only goal of the match at the 42nd minute. In their previous match, New England recorded their first win of the season, a 1-2 at home against Minnesota United. New England are now sitting at the 10th spot of the league table with 4 points. They have scored five goals and have conceded ten in the process.
On the other hand, Atlanta United (0-2-2) also played against Columbus Crew in their last match. Columbus got lucky in the starting minutes and took the lead. Atlanta United actually played much better throughout the whole match but conceded another goal at the 39th for the final 0-2. Atlanta United are clearly missing Miguel Almiron, but they don’t deserve to be in that spot. They are currently stuck at the bottom of the Eastern Conference with just two points after four matches. They have scored just two goals and have conceded just six.
Atlanta United have dominated this match-up over the years (2-0-2) and last season they won by 1-2 at home and drew a 1-1 in this venue. Both teams are in a similar spot, struggling to get results. And both matches in this venue were draws.
Atlanta United have been better than New England so far, so they have the upper hand in my opinion. They really don’t deserve to be stuck all the way down there, so I expect them to snap out of it soon. I am taking the visitors to cover the spread with a little luck here.
