MLS Betting Odds
There are two stages of betting odds that you can find in Major League Soccer, outright betting markets on competitions and betting markets for individual MLS matches. For the latter, the odds are split up into outright odds and in-play odds. Outright odds allow you to bet on betting markets at the start of a game, meanwhile, in-play betting odds mean that you can bet on an individual game as they go on. For a long time, the MLS became a hub for betting markets on transfers. Following David Beckham's transfer to LA Galaxy in 2007, the Inter Miami owner has become a catalyst for big transfers of players such as Gareth Bale, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Carlos Vela have bolstered the strength of their team in American Soccer. However, with this in mind, big names in the football world have been consistently linked with moves to the MLS in the transfer window particularly in the Summer window when teams are hoping to be playing in the playoffs and will pay big money even if it is just to make the first round of the playoffs.
