This week, there’s a battle in the Eastern Conference, with the current conference leaders, the Revolution, travelling to Atlanta. Here at CaptainGambling.com, we have put together all of the information you need to know about the two teams. From our expert analysis, we have also put together a betting tip for you to take advantage of at the weekend.
The current constitution
Average Atlanta United So Far
For Atlanta United, it has been an OK start to the season. By no means the worst in the league, but they currently find themselves below the playoff positions and on a seven-game winless streak. That isn’t a stat that any soccer team wants under their belt. On some occasions, Atlanta have been unlucky in some games, with results not going their way. However, now seven games without a win, Atlanta are up against it heading into the weekend, against the current Eastern Conference leaders. The home side will want to try and do everything to put an end to this disappointing run of form.
New England Revolution Leading the East
In contrast to their opponents, New England Revolution have made a strong start to the season and now find themselves in first place in the east. Following an impressive start to the season, winning seven of their first 10 matches, they are now leading the way in the Conference, three points ahead of Orlando in second. With that said, their recent run of form has admittedly been less than impressive. The Revolution’s last three results in the league have seen them secure just one point out of a possible nine. The Conference leaders will travel to Atlanta needing a win to maintain their top spot.
Head to Head
Despite the fact that New England Revolution have had a considerably better start to the MLS season, it’s actually their opponents who dominate previous results. Atlanta United have won four out of their last five encounters with the Revolution - a surprise to a number of soccer fans. However, in their most recent match against one another - this season - it was the Revolution who beat Atlanta 2-1. As the game that took place most recently, around two months ago, we think it is more reliable information than the data from late 2018.

Our Betting Tip for Today
After analyzing all of the above information, we have predicted that New England Revolution will take all three points away from Atlanta. We’re also expecting a high-scoring affair, which is why we have predicted an away win & over 2.5 goals combined!
Revolution Set For Convincing Away Win
With the Revolution looking to extend their lead at the top of the Eastern Conference, with Orlando playing later that evening, New England have a great opportunity to do so against a struggling Atlanta side. With that said, the away side’s recent record has seen them concede a number of goals, and United will want to pile on the pressure whenever they can to try and get something from the game. With the Revolution not afraid to go forward either, this is why we are predicting that there will be over 2.5 goals. If both sides try to plan an attacking game, then it’s likely that this will certainly be the case. However, we think Revolution will get the job done on the road, and take all three points by the end of 90 minutes.
With Unibet NJ, you can find odds for Revolution to win & over 2.5 goals combined at +220 - a generous parlay offer to make the most of!
