USA – Major League Soccer 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 which brings a lot of tipsters and MLS predictions.

LA Galaxy MLS Match

Founded in 1993, the MLS will be home to 28 teams since 2022. The MLS works differently from most other football leagues worldwide including Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A or Ligue 1, 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, 26 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 Los Angeles Football Club.

MLS Expert Picks

Our professional tipsters are looking into the season preview to get the best information available before posting their MLS picks. Los Angeles Galaxy looks like a great contender to win the Cup in 2023 so it’s expected that they go strong from the start against teams like NY Red Bulls, Orlando City SC, and others that don’t look so great this season. One of the best tips is both teams to score which is common for over 50% of the teams in the league. The play style is much different from the Champions League or La Liga but MLS picks are becoming popular even in Europe considering that a lot of players are relocating there.
