The MLS Is Back Tournament is set to start in Orlando and despite Los Angeles FC being betting favorites, it's actually an outsider that has taken the highest percentage of bets through Oddschecker.
The Colorado Rapids, available at +4000, have taken a huge 36% of wagers on the tournament. It's a quite astonishing number for a team currently the 16th favorite with sportsbooks to end up as champions.
The Rapids being so popular is a huge surprise but it doesn't look set to be the last one. FC Dallas, who were fifth favorites, have had to pull out of the tournament after confirming 11 positive cases of Covid-19. It's set to be a memorable spectacle in the history of the MLS and a 40/1 outsider like the Rapids winning is certainly something you wouldn't rule out in a year like 2020.
