Best MLS Western Conference Betting Tips
The first thing you should know when placing your MLS bet is that home pitch advantage is very real. 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.
The next thing is to know that our Vancouver Whitecaps are starting to become a legit presence out west, with some strong showings.
Aside from that, be careful who you take betting advice from. There are lots of “experts” out there. There are countless websites and YouTube videos on the web, all claiming they have the answer to making money “every time.” But they are all just varying degrees of educated guesses. There is no substitute for doing your research and looking at all the numbers, including our soccer betting lines above (clearly). Do your homework and place your bets accordingly.
So pay attention to the lines, the latest injuries and the current trends in the MLS. Build your own strategy based on what works for you and what doesn’t.
