Today we have a very interesting matchup between Atlanta and New York Red Bulls. Atlanta is an excellent home team, but has been abysmal on the road this season. Atlanta has only failed to score in their building once in the last ten matches. The New York Red Bulls have struggled to get results at home, but have been road warriors all season. NYRB have picked up 24 points on the road this season putting them on top of the Eastern Conference in road points. I love both teams to score and over 2.5 in tonight's game.

Atlanta United vs New York Red Bulls
Atlanta has been in shambles and it can no longer only be blamed on the run of injuries. They are loaded with talent but it just hasn’t been clicking for them this season. Regardless of what's going on in the locker room or front office, Atlanta still has King Josef who loves scoring at home. Luiz Araujo is another baller forward in the Atlanta lineup. He loves to get shots on net and is due by xG standards for a goal. Keep an eye on the prices for these two guys. They are who I will be targeting to score for Atlanta.
As I said earlier, NYRB have been an absolute wagon on the road. They are 7-3-3 this year, and it seems like they always find a way to leave the opposition's building with points. Unfortunately, they have been terrible in their own building. At home NYRB are 3-4-5 and the worst team in the Eastern Conference in their own building. It’s actually quite shocking that a team can be this dominant away, but fail to protect their own house. Anyway, the man to focus on for NYRB is Lewis Morgan. He leads the team in goals and is the designated PK taker. The other guy I like to watch is the 25 year old Brazilian Luquinhas. He drives pace, can be an effective set up man, and definitely has a quality finish. If he is in NYRB starting XI I will potentially be looking his way for a goal as well.
Another interesting note, the pace in Atlanta is always lightning fast. The stadium is in a dome and on artificial turf. This makes for an extremely fast game for both sides and lots of end to end action. If you like betting corners markets, this is a great game for that. Atlanta and the opposition always seem to run up massive corner numbers in this building. I definitely think it has to do with the turf, the dome, and the pace of play in front ofAtlanta’s absolutely rocking crowd.
