In addition, Atlanta has a slight rest advantage over Seattle. The Five Stripes last played on Saturday, earning a draw against Chicago. Meanwhile, the Sounders played on Tuesday night, beating FC Dallas, and must now travel across the country to play Atlanta.

Why you should back the Seattle Sounders

The Sounders have one of the best defenses in the league. Seattle has given up just 27 goals this season, which is the third fewest in the Western Conference and the sixth fewest in the league. Sounders goalkeepers rank third in MLS in save percentage (74.3), behind only Philadelphia and NYCFC.
