Borgata Sportsbook Sets the Odds as a New MLS Season Begins

America’s own premier soccer competition, Major League Soccer, (or the MLS as it is much better known) is back for its 26th season and getting back to as normal as it can be after the interruptions to the 2020 season resulting from the effects of the global pandemic.

With that in mid, there’s some great opportunities for New Jersey sports bettors to get onboard with MLS season winner (the MLS Cup) futures wagering. With a new team joining the league, the Austin Football Club, competition is set to be tougher than ever.

Leading online sportsbook Borgata has a great selection of betting odds on offer. Let’s examining some of the leading candidates to lift the MLS Cup in 2021 (all odds current at the time of writing and subject to change);

LAFC (Los Angeles Football Club)

Borgata’s Odds to Win the MLS: +500

Borgata Odds to Win the Western Conference: -105

In only their 5th year of existence, LAFC are the standouts to win the MLS in 2021. Having missed star striker Carlos Vela out with injury for most of last year, and now having finally got their third designated player right in Brian Rodriguez, LAFC are set to keep pouring on the goals this year. Still light on defense, but who cares? They simply score more than their opposition, a simple equation. Coach Bob Bradley has an embarrassment of player riches at his disposal.

Columbus Crew

Borgata’s Odds to Win the MLS: +550

Borgata Odds to Win the Eastern Conference: +200

The defending MLS Cup Winners from 2020, the Crew unbelievably have managed to strengthen their squad from last year. Already boasting MLS Cup MVP Lucas Zelarayan, Portuguese winger Pedro Santos and U.S. international Gyasi Zardes, the Crew have added one of the MLS’ top scorers in its history with the recruitment of Bradley Wright-Phillips and winger Kevin Molino.

With Marlon Hairston in defense and Perry Kitchen in midfield, the Crew have built a stellar squad more than capable of retaining their title.

Seattle Sounders

Borgata’s Odds to Win the MLS: +600

Borgata Odds to Win the Western Conference: +190

The Sounders boast the kind of record that even Barcelona, Real Madrid or Manchester City aspire to. In all 12 seasons, they’ve never missed the playoffs and have been to 4 of the last 5 MLS Cup Finals. It’s a period of transformation at Seattle and they’ve bought some quality youngsters to give the team an energy they lacked at the business end of 2020.

Toronto FC

Borgata’s Odds to Win the MLS: +900

Borgata Odds to Win the Eastern Conference: +400

After a quality 2020 season, Toronto finished the year in second place but stumbled to lose to Nashville in the playoffs. However, they have not panicked and kept the core of this quality team together in Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley, and Jonathan Osorio – all experienced performers – to make another run at the title fueled by last season’s disappointment.

Orlando City SC

Borgata’s Odds to Win the MLS: +1100

Borgata Odds to Win the Eastern Conference: +500

Orlando play to entertain and their fans love them. They play an exciting brand of soccer and recruited accordingly with every position filled by an energetic livewire, including experienced Portuguese international, Nani. His supporting cast of Daryl Dike, Pereyra, Benji Michel, Moutinho and Ruan are all quality in their own right and if the defense steps up to play with similar passion, it could be Orlando’s year.
