Whatever your thoughts on the quality of MLS – and the huge success of Bradley Wright-Phillips may have an impact on that – it’s hard to deny that with goals galore it’s decent post-pub entertainment at the weekends.
There are a lot of recognisable faces playing in the US and David Silva is allegedly due to join them at the end of the season. Josef Martinez may not be the most familiar name but he’s tearing it up right now for Atlanta and we’re going to back him today.
Atlanta are one of the best teams in their conference and in MLS as a whole, in part due to the aforementioned Martinez. Atlanta are in for a shout at winning their conference and the cup overall and Martinez is just two goals shy at the moment from leading the top scorers race. He has opened the scoring in the last 3 games, and more than anyone else overall. He’s also scored in EVERY game since July, often doubling up as he did last time out, and he takes the penalties. 13/5 for him to open the scoring tonight therefore seems more than fair.
