MLS Picks: June 30

By Ryan Nadrajan

Major League Soccer is in action on a rare Thursday night with two games between the New York Red Bulls vs. Atlanta United and Charlotte vs. Austin FC.

The New York Red Bulls (7-5-5) come into the game after being unable to upset Los Angeles FC on the road last weekend. The 2-0 loss for the Red Bulls came with more disappointment as the visitors failed to score for their fourth consecutive away game. Things do appear much brighter at home, where they have been able to find the net consistently while managing to score two or more goals in their last five games in all competitions. Currently sitting in fourth place with 26 points, a win tonight could see them close in a tie for first in the conference.

Sitting in 11th place in the Eastern Conference are Atlanta United (5-4-6) with 19 points. They look to bounce back after a 2-1 loss to the hands of Toronto FC in their last match. Atlanta has had a rough time this season on the road as they have only been able to collect 4 points, with a record of 1-1-5. Their away matches have been high scoring as of late, as the last four all saw over 2.5 goals. Despite the losses, the ‘Five Stripes’ haven’t been shut-out in their last 8 MLS matches.

The tale of this match is that a very good home side will welcome a very poor away side and should seemingly be able to collect all three points. New York Red Bulls have dominated the head-to-head history going 7-4-1 against Atlanta United, while never conceding when playing at the Red Bull Arena. Atlanta United has seen their squad get thinner as the weeks have gone on due to injuries. That will be no help against a side that has been building momentum at home.

Pick: New York Red Bulls -142 (Bet365)

Other bets to consider:

New York Red Bulls over 1.5 Goals -138 (Betway) - NYRB can make it six straight games to score two or more at home and considering Atlanta’s recent results, the trend is likely to continue.
