Introduction to MLS odds
MLS odds are betting lines given to matches in Major League Soccer, the top flight of American soccer (football).
The MLS is structured with both a regular-season format and postseason competition; the regular season consists of 34 games, 17 home and 17 away, and the postseason is a bracket-style competition between the top seven teams from each conference (the top seed gets a bye).
Regular-season games do not go to extra time or penalties, while postseason matches will go as far as they need to determine a winner.
How to read MLS odds
MLS odds have three outcomes regardless of regular or postseason: Team A win, Team B win, or draw. Although postseason matches cannot end in draws, the bet is decided at the end of regulation, which can be a tie before extra time is added on.
MLS betting lines indicate the favorite by giving their value a “-”; if all outcomes are preceded by a “+,” then the outcome with the lowest value is the favorite, and the rest are the underdogs.
How to bet on the Major League Soccer
All that bettors need to do to bet on the MLS is to pick their favorite outcome from a list of MLS betting odds, allocate a certain amount of money (or a promotional voucher) to the bet, and then press submit.
Bettors can create parlays and same-game parlays in MLS games to increase the payout while also increasing the risk. All sportsbooks, especially American books, will likely have the MLS among their top options on match days.
When can I bet on the MLS?
MLS games frequently occur on the weekend, though they can also come on weekdays, depending on schedules in other competitions.
How do I make money betting on the MLS?
The MLS has lots of upsets, which always keeps it interesting on the betting front. The best approach is to examine every matchup instead of simply picking the team with the better record.
Where can I find MLS bets?
If sportsbooks do not display the MLS as an option in a subheading, click on soccer (or football), and then you should find the bet sheet.
