Expert Betting Tips
Atlanta United are in better form and playing at home will be an extra boost for the team. Portland Timbers on the other hand were beaten at home by a newly promoted side and that can be hard for any team. I think this is an opportunity for the home side to return to winning ways and maintain their spot on the top of the table.
