Major League Soccer keeps on trucking through the summer giving us some club football to enjoy when we get in from the pub. The quality isn’t always the best but that hasn’t stopped people enjoying the women’s World Cup. In this competition at least there are a number of familiar faces, most notably Wayne Rooney who is filling his boots at the moment for DC United.
There are nearly always goals so first goalscorer picks can turn out to be quite profitable. The league is also pretty competitive and with the play-off system most teams have something to aim for late into the season despite there being no relegation. From a betting perspective what should happen is usually what happens and the MLS website kindly provides just about every statistic you could ask for to help us make our decisions.
Valeri Qazaishvili is our pick for today. He’s scored 3 in 3 for San Jose Earthquakes who average 2 goals per game at home. They’re playing Real Salt Lake who have one of the leakiest defences on the road – averaging 2 goals against per away fixture. We’re backing him to open the scoring but we’ll cover ourselves with the anytime goalscorer bet too.
