Betting on the MLS is always an exciting opportunity - between the regular season, the playoffs and the MLS Cup, there’s plenty of action due to take place over the course of the season.
Major League Soccer (MLS) sees teams from both America and Canada (mainly America) battling it out in two conferences and then the MLS Cup play-offs. The 2023 season will see 29 clubs taking part in the main season, hoping to qualify for the MLS Cup play-offs. The defending MLS Cup champions are Los Angeles FC who beat Philadelphia Union in the final via a penalty shootout.
Los Angeles FC also won the Supporters Shield after winning the Western Conference by 11 points. MLS Cup losing finalists Philadelphia Union were the winners of the Supporters Shield for winning the Eastern Conference.
New to the MLS this year are St Louis City SC, who will be playing in the Western Conference. There will be 14 clubs in that conference and 15 in the Eastern Conference with Nashville switching to that conference. There is no relegation in the MLS. Los Angeles FC (now without Gareth Bale) will be bidding to become the first side since LA Galaxy in 2012 to win the MLS Cup in two successive seasons.
Statistics can help you get wins when betting on the MLS. Here is a selection of the top stats for the 2022 MLS season.
Another exciting season lies ahead of us when the 2023 MLS season begins on February 25. Los Angeles FC will be defending the MLS Cup and again hoping to finish top of the Western Conference again. They will be without Gareth Bale for the new season after he announced his immediate retirement from the game in January. Their squad is a strong one and they were already top of the conference when he joined them.
They can again expect to see tough opposition from Philadelphia Union who came so close to winning the MLS Cup last season. Austin FC had an excellent season in 2022 and are again likely to be a major force in 2023. LA Galaxy are also strong contenders as are New York City. Here are the latest odds.
