How to bet on soccer futures odds
MLS futures odds are constantly adjusted throughout the offseason due to player transfers and injuries. Once the season begins, title odds will change as teams win and lose games and as more players get hurt or suspended. Sportsbooks will also adjust MLS odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.
MLS futures odds will usually look like this:
- Seattle Sounders +400
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $400 if Seattle wins the MLS Cup. If it's close to the end of the competition, or a club has been particularly dominant, you might see them with a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds.
- Los Angeles Galaxy -115
This means that you would need to bet $115 to win just $100 on an LA Galaxy MLS Cup win.
