Betting on soccer in the US is beginning to grow in popularity. Here are two of the best MLS bets to make this right now with Intertops.
We’re now 6 weeks into the 2017 MLS season. While soccer does not yet boast the fan base that sports like baseball and football have in the US, the sport is growing here every single year. Let’s look at two of the best MLS bets to make right now.
Bet on Columbus Crew vs. Toronto FC
The top team in the Eastern Conference will be taking on the number 9 ranked team, but somewhat surprisingly, the odds are not that drastic. Columbus have been extremely impressive this season with a 3-1-2 record, and are seen by some as a betting favorite to win the MLS championship.
Toronto has not been quite as remarkable, going 1-4-0. As a result, Columbus are the significant betting favorites with odds of 2.15. Toronto’s odds to beat Columbus are set at 3.15. The odds of a draw happening are set at 3.30.
Bet on the Colorado Rapids vs. Real Salt Lake
In the Western Conference, two lower-ranked teams will be fighting for their chance to move up into the playoff discussion. The Rapids were seen by some MLS betting experts as dark horse this season, but 4 games in they’ve gone just 1-1-2.
Real Salt Lake has historically been a bottom team, though a recent win over Vancouver has some wondering whether they have a shot of making the playoffs this year. Most online sportsbooks in the US aren’t banking on it, as they’re a massive 4.10 underdog against the Rapids. Colorado is the MLS betting favorite here with odds of 1.85. The huge odds discrepancy here makes this one of the best MLS bets to make this week.
