New York City FC is among the top teams in the MLS but the current standings do not show that. New York has not win in the MLS for more than a month now and they are going into the game against the Atlanta Union with a state of emergency. Atlanta is near the bottom of the standings and despite playing well recently, they will be blown away on Yankees Stadium. New York is simply a much better team and with a must-win attitude, they will dominate this game and win easily. For higher odds, placing a bet on New York’s win with at least three scored goals seems like a good deal.
