Competition: MLS

Market: Atlanta United win

Odds: 8/13 @ Bet 365

Hoping to widen their advantage at the top of the Eastern Conference, Gerardo Martino’s Atlanta side will travel to the Avaya Stadium to face a San Jose side drastically short of form.

Starting with the hosts, after once again enduring a torrid campaign in the Western Conference, Mikael Stahre’s side once again sit bottom of the table with any playoff ambitions gone. Coming off the back of a 5-1 loss to Sporting KC last weekend, San Jose have already shipped 57 goals this year, the third worse in the whole of the MLS. Now winning just two of their last 26 matches in all competitions, they have also only managed to pick up one win at the Avaya Stadium since March.

As for Gerardo Martino’s Atlanta side, after bouncing back after their defeat to DC United a fortnight ago, the visitors once again sit top of the Eastern Conference. Putting three past Colorado last time out, there 59 games this season means that they now hold the best-attacking stats in either division. Now losing just one of their last 12 matches, one man to watch for Atlanta will be the MLS leading goalscorer Josef Martinez. With 28 goals already this year he has already broken the MLS goalscoring record and is nine goals against BWP.
