It’s hard to ignore the impact and attention that LA Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has brought to the MLS recently. He’s made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the Dan Patrick Show via phone call, and he’s clearly soaking it all up. It’ll be interesting to see how the entire season plays out, especially since he may be World Cup-bound with Sweden, but the added exposure for the league has to be a positive. There are plenty of other great players, teams and storylines to follow, and hopefully his presence will help put them in focus.

 

Another positive in this MLS season has been picking out value plays (18-12, +18.54 units). While it’s still early, last weekend was another successful one and we hope to keep it rolling during a weekend with three very high-profile matchups:

  • Vancouver Whitecaps at Sporting Kansas City (Friday, 9 p.m. ET)
  • Atlanta United at LA Galaxy (Saturday, 10:30 p.m. ET)
  • New York City FC at Portland Timbers (Sunday, 6 p.m. ET)
