D.C. United, the famous “Black and Red,” have been part of MLS since the start and are one of the most decorated club in league history, although much of their success occurred in the early years. United won the MLS Cup in 1996, 1997, and 1999 (they were runners-up in 1998), and again in 2004. They’ve also won the Supporters’ Shield on four occasions, including 1997, 1999, 2006, and 2007. In 2022, D.C. United finished at the bottom in the Eastern Conference. They lost 21 of the 34 games they played.

DC United are perenially expected to qualify for the postseason but the big question remains whether they have what it take to advance deep into the playoffs.
D.C. United Needs Vast Improvements in 2023
The most decorated club in MLS history needs to address its failure to qualify for the playoffs in the last three MLS seasons. The club only mustered 7 wins in 34 matches during 2022, taking as little as 27 points.
Despite last year's challenges, D.C.'s Head Coach, Wayne Rooney, has now made some crucial signings to bolster the team's performance. With these reinforcements, he will be looking to change D.C. United's fortune on the pitch. However, the team must remain committed to putting in the necessary work to achieve better results.
Last year, D.C. United signed Belgian forward Christian Benteke from Crystal Palace. Although he joined midway through last season, he just managed to score 1 goal in 7 appearances. Still, Benteke is a top player with years of experience playing at highest level and he did show signs of being able to improve D.C.'s performance. That said, for the team to reach playoffs, Benteke should score at least 15 goals this season.
By the stats, it's difficult to surmise whether to bet on the over or under. It depends on where they play and who they play so dig deeper and find out how matchups could possibly favor D.C. It's always good to take recent form into account, evaluating how United has played in the last five or 10 games.
