MLS Predictions & Betting Tips

You’re in safe hands. Before making each Major League Soccer tip our experts analyse statistics, look at potential angles and compare them with bookmaker odds. It’s hard to be better informed!

The American football league is among the fastest-growing in the world. There are new clubs, such as David Beckham’s new Miami-based franchise, while the league is also pulling in ever-higher calibre players from Europe. As the league’s quality improves, so does its betting market. You’d be mad not to try it!

Right, let’s dive in with your questions.

When do you post your MLS tips?

Our MLS match previews cover every single game and are posted two to three days before each game kicks off. For midweek matches, predictions will be available from Monday evening. By posting our tips early, we make sure we get the best value from bookmakers while also giving you plenty of time to digest our predictions.

How to bet on the MLS today

Your first port of call should be our free bets page, where you can compare the best offers from all the top bookmakers.

It also pays to be informed before placing a bet – particularly on a high-profile league like this where so much information is available. This means it’s important you look at our MLS betting tips for all the best insight. If you’d also like previews for other competitions, make sure to check out our match predictions page.

When is the MLS season?

The American football season runs from February to October, with the MLS Cup Playoffs taking place from October to November. You can find live MLS tables here, while it’s also worth taking a look at this season’s top scorers.

Which teams are in the MLS?

What’s the playing style like in America?

Given the size of the US, weather conditions and therefore playing styles vary greatly from team to team. Although a large generalisation, most managers try to copy the fast, physical style of the Premier League. Remember the way the American national team ran themselves into the ground at the 2014 World Cup? Tactics and technical quality can be lacking, but it all makes for an entertaining game of football.

Who has won the MLS Cup most often?

The MLS Cup is played between the winners of the Eastern Conference and Western Conference. LA Galaxy and New York Cosmos have won the league championship most often with five wins each. They are followed by DC United on four titles.

Recent winners:

  • 2021: New York City FC
  • 2020: Columbus Crew
  • 2019: Seattle Sounders
  • 2018: Atlanta United
  • 2017: Toronto FC
  • 2016: Seattle Sounders
