MLS: Most popular markets

The MLS Cup is the biggest and most important prize in North American soccer.
It is won by the side that manages to qualify, and then navigate, the MLS’ end-of-season playoffs.

Unlike a regular league format, which is used in most European countries, the MLS shifts to a knockout stage for its end-of-season play. This can lead to excellent odds within MLS betting sites for those of you looking for value.

New York City FC took home their first ever MLS Cup in 2021. However, it should be noted that no team has retained the title since LA Galaxy in 2012. Predicting the winner of the MLS Cup can be a difficult task, with the playoffs regularly providing unforeseen shocks and upsets.

It is a system that ensures that no one team dominates the tournament. MLS betting reflects this, with greater odds and value available for bettors.

Moneyline

Aka match result odds, the moneyline is the most straightforward bet available if we are looking to wager on a soccer match – which team do we think is going to win?

Parlay insurance

A parlay is a bet on several different matches or outcomes. Usually, all the results have to be right for you to get a return.

Many Soccer betting sites offer parlay insurance. This means if one of your teams or players lets you down, you still get all or part of your stake back.

Cash out

Cash Out allows you to close your bet and get some winnings before a match is over. If you have backed one side to win but fear their opponents will equalize, you may want to cash out.

However, the amount you get back will not be as much as your payout would be at full-time.

Money back insurance

With a money-back offer, you have the insurance that if your bet loses in a particular way, you will receive your stake back – usually in the form of a free bet. One example is when you back a team to win on the moneyline and the match is a draw. It’s worth shopping around for these offers.

Free bet clubs

The idea is a simple one; if you are a member of the club and you wager a certain amount with them during the week, you receive a free bet at the weekend. Soccer betting sites encourage loyalty with offers like this.

Bet builders

With bet builders you can create your own bet from any number of markets, which means if your bet doesn’t exist, you can get it priced up. For instance, if you think one team will win on the moneyline, a particular player will score and there will be a certain number of bookings or corners, a sportsbook will let you build that bet – then give you odds for it.

Odds boosts

Sportsbooks will often offer an enhanced price on a particular outcome to offer their customers extra value, but also to attract extra bets. The new boosted price could be about the next player to score, the final result of a match, or any other event.

2 goal early payout

Some sportsbooks will pay out on a bet as a win on the moneyline if the team in question goes two goals ahead. This means that if you have wagered on that team and they go two goals up, and their opponents come back to equalize or even win the match, you still win your bet.
