The race for the MLS title has just started and four teams have a realistic chance of winning the title. Considering the fact that this season is unlike many others, some teams could have dips in form and others might use that in their favor to be in the top spots in the USA/Canada top flight.

As things stand, LAFC are the current favorites to lift the MLS Cup title. Behind them are the Columbus Crew, with Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC lurking from behind. This has made it extremely difficult for the oddsmakers to pinpoint which team will take the title.

The other title race that is heating up is one for the leading goalscorer, where even five players have a chance to claim the prize. Carlos Vela, Josef Martinez, Raul Ruidiaz, Diego Rossi, and Gonzalo Higuain are DraftKings' foremost picks to win the scoring title in the Major Soccer League. Each has a case for themselves and with a lot to play for each one could end up becoming the top goalscorer. Here are the top 5 picks to become the MLS 2021 top goalscorer.

Carlos Vela to become the MLS top goalscorer

Carlos Vela missed a great part of the 2020 season due to a ligament injury. Eventually, he made barely seven appearances in the league. During those seven games, he scored four times. Overall, his stats in the MLS are out of this world. The Mexican striker has netted 62 goals in 81 games for the Los Angeles FC.

Josef Martinez to become the MLS top goalscorer

As well as Carlos Vela, Atlanta star Josef Martinez also missed almost the entire 2020 MLS season. He managed to make one rare appearance in the final game of the term, failing to find the net. In the time spent at Atlanta United from 2017 to this day, Martinez has scored a total of 90 goals in 106 matches.

Raul Ruidiaz to become the MLS top goalscorer

The new MLS star, Gonzalo Higuain appeared in nine games for David Beckham's club, Inter Miami in 2020. In only one of them, he succeeded to beat the rival's goalkeeper. Much is expected of Miami's biggest signing so far in the 2021 season.
