Why you should back Inter Miami 

The Herons are making last season a distant memory, as they already have eclipsed last year’s win total of nine and have matched the amount of points they earned in 2023. Inter Miami are the highest-scoring team in MLS with 38 goals after recording 41 last campaign and also have the best goal differential at plus-17. Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez and Argentinian forward Lionel Messi have combined to record 21 of the club’s goals, with the former sharing second place in the league with 11 and the latter ranking fourth with 10.

Suarez and Messi both have gone back-to-back games without a goal after torrid stretches. The 37-year-old Suarez converted in seven of his previous 10 matches, recording a hat trick and two braces over that span, while the 36-year-old Messi — who leads MLS with 12 assists — posted a seven-game goal streak during which he registered three braces. Meanwhile, Ecuadorian forward Leonardo Campana has scored in both of the Herons’ last two contests to double his season total. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Atlanta United 

The Five Stripes could be without top scorer Giorgos Giakoumakis (five goals), who also missed the side’s 1-0 loss to LAFC on Saturday with a strained hamstring. If the Greek striker is unavailable, Atlanta will look for offense from Argentinian midfielder Thiago Almada, who returned to the lineup last weekend after being sidelined for a game with a calf injury. The 23-year-old Almada is tied with Senegalese striker Jamal Thiare for second on the squad with three goals.

Almada has notched just one assist this season but is one of the top set-up men in MLS as he led the league with 19 last year. Winger Brooks Lennon has yet to convert this campaign but tops the Five Stripes with four assists. The 26-year-old native of Arizona scored a career-high four goals in 2023, including one in Atlanta’s victory against Inter Miami. Georgian midfielder Saba Lobjanidze has netted a pair of goals and added three assists in his second season with Atlanta. See which team to pick here.
