Nashville and Atlanta to See Over 2.5 Goals in the Game (Low Odds): +130 FanDuel

The Eastern Conference and Western Conference will clash again this weekend as two playoff hopefuls meet with just three points separating Nashville and Atlanta United in the standings. The Eastern side does have a game in hand over Nashville, however, so they will be aiming to move above them in the standings with a win.

This clash between the two also comes just 10 days from their U.S Open Cup battle, where the Tennessee team was the 3-2 winner in a five-goal thriller. Nashville also saw over 2.5 goals in their win over high-flying Montreal the last time out.

All of Atlanta's past six games have seen over 2.5 goals, with four of those even seeing over 3.5. Another high-scoring affair is expected here.

Red Bulls to Beat Inter Miami 3-0 (High Odds): +1900 DraftKings

The New York Red Bulls are the fifth highest scorers in the MLS this season, having also only conceded 12 goals in 12 games. They're also unbeaten in their past eight games, and within this period, the club has scored three goals on three different occasions, with a 3-0 win at Orlando City, a 3-0 victory at D.C United and a 3-3 draw at home to the Chicago Fire.

The Red Bulls now meet with an Inter Miami team that has let in the second-most goals in the Eastern Conference, while scoring the league's fewest goals. Phil Neville’s team also has not won in its past three MLS games, and the New York side will be looking to secure another comfortable win here.

The Quakes and Sporting KC to Draw 2-2 (High Odds): +1150 BetMGM

The San Jose Earthquakes, 12th in the Western Conference, meets 13th-ranked Sporting Kansas City at PayPal Park in Northern California this weekend, as two of the conference's most underperforming teams clash. 

San Jose has witnessed an astonishing 50 goals already in 12 games this season — a record this early in a season. Sporting KC has a poor defensive record with 24 goals given up, while they are the conference's lowest scorers with 12 goals.

The two sides are separated by a point ahead of the game, and it’s expected that with them so close in the standings that a draw will take place.

Philadelphia to Beat Portland (Low Odds): +180 BetMGM

The Philadelphia Union will be looking to beat the out-of-form Portland Timbers to remain atop the Eastern Conference, as the Oregon team looks to leap into the playoffs with a win.

Given the difference between the two this season, the Union are priced quite highly just to win at Providence Park, as Philadelphia has the best defensive record (9 goals given up) in the Eastern Conference.

At the same time, the Timbers lost last time out to the Quakes, which was a massively underwhelming display given how the clubs are only outside of the playoffs by goals difference. In reality, Philadelphia is expected to win quite comfortably here.
