While Tim is taking naps and changing diapers, Dan and Kevin are back to break down all the action this past week as Atlanta United squared off against FC Cincinnati in a 1-1 draw followed by a loss at home this weekend at the hands of the Columbus Crew. While both games see a marked improvement in the level of play for the 5-Stripes, they remain winless through their last 9 matches. The return of Josef Martinez definitely creates a spark, but they’ll need a lot more than 1-2 pieces of the puzzle this weekend as they face rivals Orlando City on the road Friday night. Clear Eyes, Full Hearts….. will probably lose.
Odds for this Friday’s game has opened and according to sportsbettingdime.com, Atlanta United are going in as +280 underdogs. Not a bad payout if you’re willing to put up the cash. Orlando is coming off of that 5-0 beat down this past weekend. No matter the outcome, Atlanta will need to figure things out fast if they are expected to compete in this years MLS playoffs. Currently sitting in 10th place in the East, every game counts, particularly against that Orlando Scum.
Tim and Kevin are here to bring you a weekly look at their hometown MLS team – Atlanta United FC. They look to bring their insights on the previous game, how the team has been doing, where they currently stand in the MLS, and look forward to their next game of the week. It’s almost that time.
