With the new season kicking off, the MLS top scorer betting predictions are out. A mixture of new and old names is on the list. For instance, Chicharito is looking great in his first season with LA Galaxy and is leading the race. On the other hand, Ruidiaz is having a strong start and is just behind Chicharito. However, this will not be a 2-horse race as several other top strikers are in the mix. Who will you bet on?
Javier Hernandez is Comfortable at MLS
Javier Hernandez seems to be feeling more comfortable at MLS after joining LA Galaxy in January 2020. The Mexican striker is already leading the MLS top scorer betting predictions after scoring seven goals in just five games. With his experience, bookies expect him to keep and extend his lead over the others. Chicharito played for some of the best European teams including Manchester United and Real Madrid. Therefore, the level of competition that MLS provides will be something he is used to. As a result, with the good early signs in this season, online sportsbook sites in the United States have him open as a favorite in their MLS top scorer betting predictions. At 1xBET Sportsbook, the odds for Hernandez to finish the season with more goals than anyone else are 3.74.
Raul Ruidiaz Came Close Last Season
Seattle Sounders FC striker Raul Ruidiaz came close to becoming MLS top scorer last season. The Peruvian player scored a total of 14 goals in the 2020 season. He shared first place with Diego Rossi and Gyasi Zardes, in which all scored the same number of goals. However, in this season, Ruidiaz will be more motivated to win the trophy after coming so close. Therefore, he is just behind Chicharito on the MLS top scorer betting predictions after scoring five goals so far. As a result, Ruidiaz‘s betting odds at 1xBET Sportsbook to become the 2021 top goalscorer are 6.00. If he continues with his current form, then he certainly has the chance to win.
MLS Top Scorer Betting Predictions
In addition to Chicharito and Ruidiaz, several other players are in contention to win the title. For instance, the 2019 MLS top scorer Carlos Vela is also included in the 2021 MLS top scorer betting predictions. At 1xBET Sportsbook, Vela’s betting odds to repeat his 2019 achievement are 8.00. The table below shows some of the other betting options along with their odds. Who are you going to bet on?
