Online MLS Betting at Betway USA | Bet on MLS
MLS betting is fast becoming a favorite of US sports fans, thanks to the rise in popularity of domestic soccer in the states. And while the MLS has had a passionate following since its inception in 1993, a steadily improving quality of play, level of organisation and fanbase size has led to an ever greater demand for MLS betting odds. From European stars like Robbie Keane and Zlatan Ibrahimovic joining the league while still in their prime, to state of the art venues such as LAFC’s Banc of California Stadium and Kansas City’s Children’s Mercy Park, the MLS is flourishing on and off the field like never before. And Betway is here to reflect the prestige of the league with a varied selection of markets, from live MLS betting odds to pre-game MLS Prop bets and more.
How to Bet on MLS
The three main types of MLS betting odds are MLS Futures bets (betting ahead of time on markets such as which team will the league) MLS pre-game bets (typically Moneyline bets and Prop bets) and live MLS bets. Before deciding which of these types of MLS bets to make, just visit Betway, select “Soccer” then “MLS” from the menu and choose your desired game.
Let’s take a game between the New York Red Bulls and D.C. United. Thanks to the Betway Sportsbook, you could bet on either team to win or a tie, which player will score first, and how many free-kicks each team will receive. Of course, these are just examples – there are dozens of MLS betting markets available for all games. How to Read MLS Odds Before you bet on the MLS, you’ll need to understand how soccer betting works. Let’s return to our New York Red Bulls @ D.C. United game.
For this game, the odds on the New York Red Bulls To Win are +150. This means if you bet $100 on the NY Red Bulls to receive this amount of corners, you’d win $150, plus your $100 stake back.
If the odds on D.C United to win were -150, this means you’d have to bet $150 to win $100, plus your $150 stake back.
An easy way to memorize how to read MLS odds is to remember that a + sign demonstrates an underdog bet, whereas a - sign shows the favorite.
MLS Spread Betting
A “spread” bet involves betting on how many goals a team will win by. So, using our NY Red Bulls @ D.C. Washington game, you could stake a bet on a -2.5 spread on the NY Red Bulls. This means you would be betting on the Red Bulls to win by at least three goals i.e., if 2.5 goals were deducted from the Red Bulls’ score, they would still win the game. Betting on DC at a spread of +2.5 means you require D.C. lose by no more than two goals to win the bet.
Live MLS Betting
Live MLS betting is perhaps the most exciting way of betting on any given MLS game – and the Betway Sportsbook provides live odds for every single game that takes place from the regular season to the playoffs. The difference between live betting and pre-match betting is that the former allows you to bet in-game, as the action unfolds in front of you. Have a hunch that the underdog will score the next goal? You can bet on this happening while you watch the game.
What’s more, Betway’s live MLS odds change throughout the game to reflect the state of play. Let’s say you bet on Chicago Fire to score at least one goal, but the game is in the 80th minute and they still haven’t found the net – the odds would increase. And if you notice that the Fire are about to bring on a super-sub or that the coach has made an offensive tactical tweak, you can bet on the longer odds and potentially win bigger than you would have pre-game.
MLS Cup Playoffs Format
If you want to bet on Major League Soccer, it’s important to understand how the MLS playoffs work. There are three rounds before the MLS Cup final. The teams in each of the Eastern and Western Conference that finish the regular season in the top six of their division qualify for the first of these rounds – Round 1.
Teams that make it through Round 1 progress to the Conference semi-finals. The Conference semi-final winners compete in their respective Conference finals, and the two Conference Winners meet in the MLS Cup Final.
Best Eastern Conference Teams
In this conference, teams from New York, Orlando and Philadelphia reign supreme. These teams have the best players, individuals who make moves on the field that produce wins every time. Bettors often place 3-way results wagers on these teams, as well as total goals over/under as well as double chance.
Best Western Conference
In the west, the top teams include those from Colorado and Los Angeles. Fans of western conference teams typically place correct score and both teams to score wagers. First/anytime/last goal scorer and total goals are fun in this conference too.
Each year the standout teams change, which makes soccer more exciting. You never know which teams will come out on top! With MLS betting, you have a fun and exciting way to wager on each of these top teams!
