Major League Soccer Betting Tips from our Experts



MLS 2019

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 2022 MLS season is already well underway and as we approach the halfway mark of August, teams have played betwen 24 and 27 games. Los Angeles FC are top of the Western Conference, nine points clear of Austin FC. In the Eastern Conference, Philadelphia Union lead Montreal by five points.

There are now 28 clubs in the MLS. This season has seen the addition of Charlotte FC who have made a good start to life in the MLS and are only just behind the play-off positions after 26 games..As is the case in many sports - especially American ones - there is a regular season and then teams qualify to play in the play-offs leading up to the MLS Cup Final.  The team with the best regular season record wins the Supporter's Shield. This was won by New England Revolution last season, New York City won the 2021 MLS Cup final beating Portland Timbers.. There is no relegation in the MLS.

The top seven in each of the conferences qualify for the play-offs. The conference winners automatically go into the play-off semi-finals. Each conference crowns its champion and the two meet in the MLS Cup. Not since 2012 has a team won the MLS Cup two years in a row, that was LA Galaxy, can New York City do that in 2022?
