How To Bet On MLS Eastern Conference
Loaded with 10 teams the Eastern Conference stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the tips of Lake Michigan and is home to two of the three Canadian teams in the league. Through the leagues history the Eastern Conference has been relatively less successful than their Western brethren. Only three Eastern clubs have won a MLS Cup, with the D.C United winning four and the Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew each owning a single championship.
The Eastern Conference does have some strong clubs that should contend for championships over the next few seasons. The New York Red Bull and Montreal Impact are both poised for success in both the short term and long term. Even the Toronto FC, a club that missed the playoffs their first eight seasons, finally got the monkey off their back and joined in the postseason party in 2015.
Typically when betting on Eastern Conference clubs, bettors will most commonly find money lines with a draw option. Because draws are so much more common in soccer than other North American sports –where it is not possible outside of the NFL – spread bets are not as popular or attractive an option. Bettors can find over/under options for total goals and player prop bets. The most common prop bets revolve around scoring. For example an individual may be watching the Toronto FC play the New York Red Bulls. A bettor may expect Sebastian Giovinco of the Toronto FC to be the first player to score in the game. Since he is an aggressive striker and strong goal scorer the odds of him scoring first are +395 and the odds of him scoring in the match are +290. If Giovinco scores, but the match is not 0-0, then a bettor who picked him to score first loses their wager. Even though soccer matches feature more than 8 to 10 players, prop bets are not always available for every player on the field.
