The new Major League Soccer season starts in a week, and we are excited. There are 5 games on March 10th, and we’ll have odds for those games soon. Right now we have updated odds for the winner of the MLS Cup! They are listed below:

Los Angeles Galaxy 15/8
Seattle Sounders 5/1
Real Salt Lake 7/1
FC Dallas 8/1
Sporting Kansas City 8/1
Colorado Rapids 12/1
Houston Dynamo 12/1
New York Red Bulls 12/1

DC United 33/1
New England Revolution 33/1
San Jose Earthquakes 33/1
Chivas USA 40/1
Montreal Impact 66/1
Vancouver Whitecaps 66/1

As you can see last year’s winner, the Los Angeles Galaxy, is favored to win the MLS Cup again this year. The top five is rounded out by the Seattle Sounders, Real Salt Lake, FC Dallas and Sporting Kansas City. If you want to bet on anyone outside of the top five, we suggest you do so soon. If the team you like starts winning, the odds on them winning the MLS Cup will drop quickly you won’t get the as good a bet as you can get on them right now.

Next weekend features some great matches. The one we’re most looking forward to the Los Angeles Galaxy against the Real Salt Lake. These are considered two of the best teams in the league, and they are playing on opening night in LA! We expect this to be a tight match, and no one matter who wins, it will be fun.

Another interesting matchup is between Sporting KC and DC United. United is one of the league’s original teams, and they won the MLS Cup the first 3 out of the 4 years that the MLS existed. While they haven’t been too good as of late, they still have many fans and they’re an interesting team to watch. Sporting KC should be favored in this game since they are considered the better team. If Sporting KC is somehow the underdog, we’ll probably bet on them.

The 3 other Saturday games are between the Colorado Rapids and the Columbus Crew, the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Montreal Impact, and lastly the San Jose Earthquakes and the New England Revolution. It’ll be a fun day!
