Two teams that are in pretty good shape lately will face off on Sunday, when Atlanta United will host New York City. Atlanta United are coming off a nice win in the US Open Cup and have now won back to back matches. New York City are also coming off a win and will be a threat here.

New York City (10-4-8) are coming off a really hard-fought 2-3 home win over Houston, in a match where they scored twice in the final minutes of the match. That was their third win in their last four matches, but they have conceded seven goals in that span. They are sitting at the 3rd spot of the Eastern Conference with 38 points, one behind their upcoming opponents. New York City have the 2nd best away record in the Eastern Conference (4-3-4) but have won just one of their last four (1-2-1).
Atlanta United (12-9-3) did a tremendous job in the US Open Cup semi-final against Orlando City, beating them by 2-0 on the road and moving on to the final. In their most recent MLS match they blasted the LA Galaxy by 0-3 at home and they have now won four of their last five (4-1-0). Atlanta United are 2nd in the Eastern Conference with 39 points, one ahead of New York City and three behind Philadelphia who have played one more match. Atlanta United have been great at home (9-1-3) and have kept clean sheets in each of their last four.

Free Pick:
Over 3 Goals (-109)

The two teams split the points in both matches last season, while Atlanta United won both matches when the two teams met in the Conference semi-finals. The stats are contradicting in this match so I will go with my gut feeling and take the Over 3 goals here.
