Expert Betting Tips
Nashville SC are better on form than the hosts and that is enough reason to back them. Their front line will pose the greatest threat in this match, so we expect them to grab more than one goal. Austin FC are also playing on home soil. They can take that as an extra motivation to score a few goals but I don't think they are good enough to beat Nashville.
