MLS Odds Update: 65.7% of Bets Placed on Atlanta United To Win MLS Cup
This hasn’t been Atlanta United’s best season, but they are still in a playoff spot. That’s enough for bettors, especially given how poor their odds are.
Atlanta United is given +6600 odds to win the MLS Cup; that’s an implied 1.5% chance. That puts Atlanta United 17th on the market. Atlanta has the worst odds of any team currently in a playoff spot. The next worst belongs to Real Salt Lake at +4000. Those odds are why bettors are flocking to Atlanta United.
Over the last 30 days, 65.7% of bets have been placed on Atlanta United to win the MLS Cup. Nashville SC is second at 8.6%. Bettors are simply all over Atlanta United and their insane odds.
MLS bettors love an underdog, but it’s usually someone with little chance to win it all. For instance, the Vancouver White Caps were the bettors favorite before the season started. However, give bettors an underdog with a real chance, and this is the result. There was just no way that bettors were going to turn away from Atlanta United at these odds.
