Major League Soccer: MLS Cup Winner Odds & Picks

Few leagues have had more parity than the MLS over the past decade, as there have been eight different winners over the past 10 years and five different over the past five. This season, Charlotte Football Club will join the league, which is starting its 27th season this weekend. 

Last season, we saw New York FC win its first title after being founded just eight years ago, beating the Portland Timbers in a penalty shootout in December. At +900, they’re near the top of the odds board to repeat this season, as only the Seattle Sounders (+650) and Los Angeles FC (+800) have better odds. Let’s take a closer look at two teams I’m keyed in on.

Seattle Sounders +600 (Bet $100 to win $600)

With two champions in the past six seasons, the Sounders are as close as we’ve gotten to a dynasty in MLS in recent memory and I think we see another run this season. Finishing the 2021 regular season in the #2 seed in the West, the Sounders got bounced in the first round via penalty kicks in one of the biggest upsets of the tournament. 

Even still, veteran goalkeeper Stefan Frei gave up the fewest goals (33) in the Western Conference and he along with their attacking core of Jordan Morris and Nicolas Lodeiro return this season for the Sounders. Having made the final the year prior and long-established one of the best franchises in MLS, I like for the Sounders to return to glory this season.

New England Revolution +900 (Bet $100 to win $900)

Winning the Eastern Conference last season during the regular season and earning themselves a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League, no team played with the pace of the Revolution throughout the year. In 34 regular-season games, New England led the league in goals (65) and goal differential (+24), playing a dominant brand of soccer from start to finish. 

While they will lose their goalkeeper Matt Turner to Arsenal this summer, DeJuan Jones and Brandon Bye will remain with the team this season despite drawing some interest from the top teams in Europe. They also still have last season’s league MVP Carles Gil who along with Gustavo Bou and Adam Buksa are amongst the best trio in all of MLS.

Add in a veteran in Jozy Altidore who joined the team this offseason, and I think the Revolution offers a ton of value heading into the 2022 season.
