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 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.
