Seattle is the clear favorite to win
The Seattle Sounders have the most points of any team in Major League Soccer and are the favorites to win.
Seattle is undefeated in their first 13 games of the season with eight wins and five draws, and is three points ahead of Sporting Kansas City at the top of the Western Conference and in the race for the Supporters ‘Shield. BetMGM bettors are confident that Seattle will keep in good shape too. Seattle is now only 350 left to win the MLS Cup.
Sounders odds have dropped from +800 at the start of the season as 14% of bets are on Sounders to win everything. Seattle accounts for almost 10% of the handle as the bettors were fans of Nashville FC too. The expansion side received 12.5% of the stakes and has the highest total handle value at 15.7%.
Nashville won +5000 in May and is now +2000.
The # 2 favorite is New England. The Revolution are +750 to win the MLS Cup as they head the Eastern Conference with 24 points in 13 games. Number 3 at +800, Sporting KC is not a popular choice despite being the second best team in the league. SKC only received 5% of the bets and 2.7% of the handle as its odds of winning have improved from +2500 in the past two months.
Here’s a look at what the odds stand for on the favorites when Major League Soccer begins its summer stretch.
