Atlanta United vs Austin FC Betting Odds
Atlanta United is the favorite to win this game with -110 odds in their favor while Austin FC is at 280. The odds for the draw are at 275.
The total goal margin is set at 2.5 with -110 to go in both ways.
This will be a very interesting game between two teams that are having a completely different season and have never played each other before. Atlanta United has a lot to make up for the bad start of the season but that will not be easy against a team like Austin FC. Atlanta is pretty tough when they play at home, they slow down the pace and are defending well.
They are coming off a tough loss in the last round and will be focused to keep their net save. Austin FC is on a great run, they are coming off back-to-back road wins and will travel to Atlanta with no pressure to win. Anyway, they are playing well and despite the odds being in Atlanta’s favor, placing a bet on Austin seems like a great deal. Maybe, they will be a little tired playing their third road game in 10 days but will definitely stay undefeated on Mercedes Benz Stadium.
