MLS Cup Betting at Sports Gambling

MLS Cup betting is the pinnacle of soccer betting in the MLS and every soccer gambling fan obviously wants to place a soccer bet on the annual event.

All clubs from the United States (and Toronto) come together once per year to duke it out and see who will be declared winner of MLS Cup betting.  The MLS Cup odds should be analyzed with a focus on each team’s recent performances, as opposed to the teams’ regular season records.

MLS Cup betting is filled with excitement, and since its first run in 1996, fans have gotten so wrapped up in the excitement of online soccer betting on their favorite teams.

A win in MLS Cup betting gives the victorious team automatic entry into the CONCACAF Champions League, the top tournament for all teams in North America, Central America, and the Caribbean.  The first winner of the MLS Cup was DC United, who would see three more soccer betting wins throughout the next 12 years.

The most recent winner was Columbus Crew, their first win.  Though MLS Cup betting fans may feel tempted to place a soccer bet on their favorite team, online soccer betting must be done with care.  Furthermore, the excitement of the MLS Cup betting often inspires soccer betting fans to increase their normal wager amounts.

MLS Cup betting can only be enjoyed one time every year, so it is rational to wager slightly more than one may wager on regular season matchups, but fans also should avoid raising their wager amounts too much.  When gamblers assess the MLS Cup betting odds the gamblers often look for guidance in each team’s regular season record.

However, looking back to the regular season provides limited value.  For example, the Houston Dynamo won the 2006 and 2007 MLS Cup betting tournaments despite finishing with an 11-8-13 record in 2006 and a 15-8-7 record in 2007 -- neither of which were the best regular soccer betting season records in the league.

Rather than focusing on the regular season, MLS Cup betting fans should focus on how each team has performed throughout the playoffs.  Such performances will offer a better indication of how well each team will perform in the MLS Cup, and consequently how much MLS Cup betting value each team offers.  Who will win the next MLS Cup?
