Columbus Crew failed to return to winning ways after their elimination from the US Open Cup. They were stuck at a draw against the visiting Red Bulls, and they are now win-less in their last four. They will now play host to Atlanta United on Wednesday, who are also coming off a draw. However, Atlanta United have been in much better form lately and could create problems here. MLS Columbus Crew vs Atlanta United Spread and Prediction.
Date/Time: 6-13-2018, 19:30 EDT
Spread: Atlanta United +0.5
Total: 3 Goals
Columbus Crew (7-3-6) played a really two-faced match against the New York Red Bulls on Saturday. The Crew were really strong in the first half where they took the lead at the 26th minute with Zardes. However it was the Red Bulls who had the upper hand in the second half and pulled even at the 57th minute for the final 1-1. Columbus extended their undefeated streak to ten matches (4-0-6) and are sitting at the 3rd spot of the Eastern Conference with 27 points.
On the other hand, Atlanta United (9-3-3) should be feeling happy about grabbing a point from their last match against NYCFC. They actually took the lead at the start of the second half, totally against the flow of the game. However, NYCFC pressured had and managed to pull even at the 77th for the final 1-1. Atlanta United still remain at the top of the Eastern Conference with 30 points. They have also been very strong on the road (4-2-1), but keeping just two clean sheets in the process.
The two teams met on three occasions last season, where Atlanta United remained undefeated (2-0-1). They also came out on top in their only trip to this venue, defeating the Crew by 2-0.
Both teams score easy goals but do concede too. I expect to see goals from both sides here, but the odds are very low (-191). It might be a strong bet, but I will alternatively go with Atlanta United to cover the spread here.
MLS Columbus Crew vs Atlanta United Prediction: Atlanta United +0.5 (-118)
