LA Galaxy Betting
The L.A. Galaxy are among the most successful franchises in the MLS, which ends up affecting betting pools as fans are much more likely to put money down on their own team. This type of bias in betting is known as “homerism”, and should be avoided at all costs. Typically, the most important factor to consider when wagering, other than the quality of the team, is whether the squad has home field advantage. In addition to travel time and effort, playing in front of a home crowd tends to add a little bit of extra motivation, pushing underdog teams that might otherwise falter to put in the extra bit of effort to steal a win or earn a draw.
Before wagering on any team, you want to make sure that you double check the moneylines to ensure that you’re getting the value that you expect from your bet. Positive moneylines usually denote an underdog while negative lines usually signify the outcome that’s most likely to occur. During regular season games, you’ll have to choose from three lines, win, lose and draw, unlike most other major sports leagues.
Since larger positive numbers net bigger payouts, the outcome with the largest positive number will be considered the least likely to occur. Similarly, the larger the negative number, the more likely that outcome is believed to be. So when the L.A. Galaxy odds state that they have a line of -225 to win, you’ll need to put $225 down on your bet to win $100. However, if they have a moneyline of +225, you’ll win $225 for betting only $100.
