Free Soccer Pick:

Atlanta United -110

Three of the last four matches between these two MLS clubs have ended in a draw while Seattle won the fourth. Seattle will be on the road and the Sounders have had problems putting the ball in the net when away from home having been held scoreless in two of their last three matches on the road and scoring only one goal in the other. Atlanta has struggled but look for the Five Stripes to take all three points at home with a strong defensive display and a goal on the counter attack. Final Score Prediction, Atlanta United wins 1-0.
