Betting On MLS Eastern Conference Online

Major League Soccer (MLS) has two conferences, the Western and the Eastern, each containing 11 teams who play a total of 34 games each, providing sports bettors more than enough opportunity to place wagers and win some money. Each team will face their 10 conference opponents twice and all 11 clubs in the opposite conference once. The remaining three games, taking the total to 34 for the season, will come against teams from their own conference. Teams play 17 home and away games.  [+]

The Eastern Conference is home to the famous D.C. United, the most decorated team in MLS history.

D.C. United have finished on top of the Eastern Conference six times, winning the MLS Cup on four occasions. They haven’t, however, won since 20014

New York Red Bulls, who play out of the Red Bull Arena, are another Eastern Conference powerhouse. The Red Bulls are known around the globe, partly because of the Red Bull sponsorship, but also because they have attracted many of soccer’s stars to their franchise, including the now-retired Thierry Henry.

The Red Bulls finished atop the Eastern Conference in 2015 and 2016 and were the number one team overall, which puts them under immense pressure in 2017 as expectations are high.  

You often find both powerhouse teams have shorter odds than you would expect. If fans back them heavily, bookmakers alter the lines accordingly. Their short odds make it possible for unusually long odds for fellow Eastern Conference teams. Columbus Crew SC and big spending New York City FC have the talent to trouble Red Bulls and usually offer wonderful value.

MLS Eastern Conference Online Betting Tips

Always consider a team’s form, who they have played, and who they are set to play. The standings can change drastically if a team manages to string together three or four wins in a row.

The standings, particularly in early season, can paint an inaccurate picture, but later in the season the saying goes that league positions never lie.

Also, be aware that almost most MLS teams struggle on the road. There was not a single team who won more away games than they lost in the 2016 regular season, although NYCFC came close, finishing with a 7-7-3 on the road record.

You May Need to Look Away From the Red Bulls for Value

We mentioned earlier that the New York Red Bulls are often short-priced favorites in their games due to their overwhelming popularity among soccer fans around the world. This means one of two things: the Red Bulls’ opponents will have attractive, long odds or you will need to look elsewhere for value in your soccer bets.

The Canadian teams, Montreal Impact and Toronto FC, both have the ability to cause major upsets against whomever they play, yet are not that well known outside of the MLS, leading to better value opportunities.
