MLS Outright Betting

For the players who miss out on MLS Futures betting before the season starts, you can still take advantage of the outright betting options offered by the best MLS betting sites all season long. While the MLS playoff odds will be available before and during the campaign, many bettors wait until the MLS playoffs to start thinking about outright bets.

Outright betting basically means you are placing a futures bet on who you like to win a tournament or event before it all starts. Predicting your MLS Cup winning team when the playoffs begin or even before the season begins, is where you’ll chase down these bets.

Who will win the Eastern Conference and which team will go on to take the Western Conference title are also featured MLS futures bets, and they, too, can be made throughout the season, or when the MLS playoffs begin.

The favorites to win the MLS Cup don’t always simply go on to take the title, and that’s where gut instincts and some luck go into finding the long shots or predicting the upsets.

Being aware of what you are betting on is of the utmost importance, and reading the MLS betting lines will determine the value behind your bets. Knowing the difference between +120 and -120 is also a key in what your return of investment will be, and that will and should be something you are always conscious of.

Betting $100 on a play with a line of -120 on a team to win will only return $80 to your pocket from that bet, so that’s where you hear the term juice or vig come into play. That same $100 on a line with +120 will put $120 in your wallet and that will not only take the juice out of play, but it will put it in your favor and boost your ROI nicely.

The higher the - line is the harsher your return will be, and the better the + line shows, the more it will give you in return.

MLS Cup Betting

As the regular season concludes, the MLS playoffs get underway which leads to the final MLS Cup game between two teams.

While you can still place an MLS futures bet and check the MLS Cup betting odds when the playoffs begin, betting on the matches will feel just like a regular-season affair. Each conference will now be sending teams to the post-season, as a new format was put in place due to 24 teams being in the league with the addition of Cincinnati in 2019.
