Best MLS Eastern Conference Betting Tips
The action in the MLS is intense, with plans to expand with even more teams. Planned future teams include Atlanta United (2017) Los Angeles (2018), Minnesota United FC (2018), and Miami (TBA).
The East has actually produced 3 championship winning teams since the MLS was founded in 1996. Their champions include D.C. United (who won 3 times), Columbus Crew (2008) and Sporting Kansas City (2013). Unfortunately, no the Toronto FC has not reached these heights yet. The best they have placed is 2015’s 12th place finish, with a record of 15–15–4.
With so many hardcore soccer fans across Canada, it can be hard to know who to trust and who you should turn to for betting advice. Everyone has their own gut feelings, or theories of what will happen. The truth is that with so many different teams and styles of play in leagues across the world, there is no “magic bullet” strategy that is guaranteed to win you big money. So pay attention to the lines, the latest injuries and the current trends in the MLS. Build your own strategy based on what what works for you and what doesn’t.
Also, know that home pitch advantage is very real in the MLS. Home teams win about 50 percent of the time, against just over 25 percent losses and 25 percent draws. If you count draws as half a win and half a loss, then home teams have slightly better than a 60 percent winning percentage.
