Winning five MLS cups, four Supporters’ Shields, two US Open Cups and the former CONCACAF Champions Cup, the LA Galaxy are easily the most decorated MLS franchise. Only two MLS teams, LA Galaxy and DC United, have won a CONCACAF tournament. The Galaxy ply their trade in the Western Conference and are known for attracting the biggest names in world football, most famously signing David Beckham from Real Madrid in 2007, probably the MLS’ most notable signing to date.
However, the Galaxy played second fiddle to DC United in the early days of the MLS. The Galaxy and DC United faced off in the MLS Cup final in 1996 and 1999, DC United winning on both occasions. LA made four MLS Cup finals before they won their first title, which came in 2002 against the New England Revolution.
They won the Western Conference in three consecutive seasons between 2009-2011 and won the MLS Cup in 2011, 2012 and 2014 but both the 2015 and 2016 seasons were a letdown by the Galaxy’s lofty standards.
Galaxy finished third in the West and sixth overall before being knocked out of the MLS Cup in the conference semifinals. The team have lost the services of Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard for the 2017 campaign. How they deal with such massive losses will shape their season.

LA Galaxy Online Betting Tips
Galaxy’s former star forward Robbie Keane scored 83 goals in 125 appearances for Galaxy but did not have his contract renewed, partly because he is now 36 years of age. Natural goal scorers are hard to come by in soccer so Galaxy fans better hope their team can find a new frontman to step into the big shoes Keane left behind.
We would expect Galaxy to continue to be dominant on home soil. In 2016, Galaxy only lost once in 17 games at the StubHub Center (8-1-8) and only five matches on their travels (4-5-8). You will notice that Galaxy drew 16 of their 34 games, stopping them from topping the conference and something to bear in mind when betting on LA during 2017.
