USA MLS Betting Tips

USA MLS Football Betting Tips

Major League Soccer has gained much more attention from the rest of the world in recent years. With players such as Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Didier Drogba, Kaka and Robbie Keane having played for some of the better sides in recent campaigns, and with David Villa amongst other big names still in the league, Major League Soccer is now taken much more seriously.

Founded in 1993, the MLS will be home to 24 teams from 2019. The MLS works differently to most other football leagues around the world, having no promotion or relegation. The league is split into two Conferences, the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference, with each side playing 34 games in an MLS season, 24 against sides in their conference and ten against sides from the other. The MLS season ends in October, with the Supporters’ Shield awarded to the side with the best record. The current holders of the Supporters’ Shield are New York Red Bulls.
