We’re now deep into the regular season, so let’s take a look at a couple of the best teams in the MLS in 2017, and what their odds are to win the championship.
Each team in the 2017 MLS season has played more than 12 games already, and every week the betting odds for the MLS Championship are changing. We’re still some way from the playoffs, but it’s the perfect time to break down two of the best teams in the MLS in 2017.
Toronto FC was the first Canadian team to enter into the MLS. For years they were seen as a mid-tier team, but they seemed to turn a corner in 2016 by reaching the Finals of the MLS playoffs. They’ve continued on that momentum thus far in 2017, and nearly all online sportsbooks in the US now list them as a betting favorite to win the season.
With top players like Michael Bradley and Ashtone Morgan, Toronto is looking great and is the top ranked team in the Eastern Conference with 8 wins 5 draws and only 1 loss. Now Intertops lists Toronto’s odds to win the MLS Cup at 7.00.
FC Dallas was founded in 1995, but have only reached the MLS Cup once, losing in a close game to the Colorado Rapids. After a recent win at the U.S. Open Cup in 2016 however, they’re seen as one of the best teams in the MLS in 2017, and have some great odds to win the MLS cup.
Many soccer betting experts are banking on Dallas to get the Championship win this year. Head coach Oscar Pareja has significantly improved the team’s offense, and is a key reason why they’re being given odds of 10.00 to make US gambling news with an MLS Cup win in 2017.
