After several consecutive games without a win, Inter Miami straightened its path against Sporting Kansas City, taking over first place in the East with 15 points. Lionel Messi has been scoring and assisting, while Luis Suárez has six goals, proving that he has the quality to perform even at his age. At home, this team has scored 12 goals in five games. 

Nashville is having a difficult start to the year, as they are in 14th place with only seven points. So far, they have only one victory in the campaign and come from a loss against Philadelphia Union. The defense has been a problem for this team, conceding 13 goals. Away, they have two matches, tying with Colorado Rapids (1-1) and being crushed by Los Angeles FC (5-0).

Atlanta United has drawn its last two games and is in sixth place, with three wins, two draws, and two losses. Their defense has performed well, having conceded only seven goals. Argentine midfielder Tiago Almada is their most important playmaker. 

Cincinnati is going through a bad streak, losing in the last two games to New York Red Bulls and Montreal. Unlike last year, the team is in fifth place, three points behind Inter Miami. They have scored very few goals, with only eight. 

There is a one-point difference between the two, with Cincinnati above, so a win for the home team would mean immediate changes in the table. 

Atlanta United vs. Cincinnati Rapids Pick: Atlanta United

Los Angeles FC are the current MLS finalists, their squad is accustomed to showing their talent on big dates, and against New York Red Bulls, they have a chance to prove it. This team is sixth in their conference with eight points, its defense has allowed 12 goals, and at home, they are undefeated, getting 10 points out of a possible 12. 

The New York Red Bulls could have been the sole leader in the East but dropped points along the way. They are now level on 15 points with Inter Miami, but it is worth noting the strength of this team, which has only lost once in eight games and has only seen its goal beaten on seven occasions. As visitors, they have eight points in five games. 

Los Angeles FC vs. NY Red Bulls Betting Pick: Draw

So far, LA Galaxy has been the team that has left the best sensations, a product of its good play and offensive numbers, with 17 goals. Dejan Joveljic has six goals and is fighting for the Golden Boot. The California club has not been a good home team, winning only once in three opportunities. 

San Jose Earthquakes is the worst team in MLS. They have only won once, and the rest of their presentations were defeats. They have only scored 10 goals and have received 20. Away, they have not even been able to score a point, although they have scored more goals in this condition (6) than at home (4).
