Favorites to win the MLS Cup
New York City FC (+340)
After a rough start to the season, NYCFC have done a complete 180 and gotten back to looking like the defending champs that they are. They have won four of five matches and sit atop the Eastern Conference, though they did just lose manager Ronny Deila to Standard Liege in Belgium.
LAFC have been one of the league's premier franchises since joining the league. The 2022 season is a new, second chapter for them in MLS, however, as the only coach in franchise history, Bob Bradley, has moved on to Toronto FC.
Steve Cherundolo's tenure as manager has gotten off to a bright start, with LAFC atop the league with an 9-3-3 record through 15 games.
New England Revolution (+1,000)
Last year's Supporters' Shield winners as the best regular-season team had an exodus of talent over the offseason, including rising star Tajon Buchanan, and will lose 'keeper Matt Turner this summer, but are unbeaten in their last eight games.
What is the format for the MLS Cup Playoffs?
In 2021, the Top 7 teams in each conference made the MLS Cup playoffs, with the top seed in each receiving a bye to the conference semifinals. The other six teams in each conference squared off in single-elimination games, with the higher seed playing host. In total, there were four rounds in the MLS Cup playoffs, with every game single-elimination.
When is the MLS Cup Playoffs?
The MLS Cup playoffs will get underway in mid-October and run for three consecutive weeks until the MLS Cup final on Saturday, November 5, ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
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 +500
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $500 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.
- LAFC -115
This means that you would need to bet $115 to win just $100 on an LAFC MLS Cup win.
