MLS Cup Favorites

Seattle Sounders to Win MLS Cup (+700) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

The Sounders are one of the best-run franchises in MLS and did a good bit of business this offseason, adding Albert Rusnák from rival Real Salt Lake via free agency.

RSL was the team that ended Seattle’s 2021 season in the most bizarre fashion, upsetting the second-seeded Sounders in the Western Conference Quarterfinals via penalty shootout after not attempting a shot in 120 minutes of regulation and extra time.

Despite that disappointment, Seattle has featured in four of the last six MLS Cups, winning in 2016 and 2019, and should have a potent strike force between Raúl Ruidíaz and a healthy Jordan Morris.

Philadelphia Union to Win MLS Cup (+1000) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

The Philadelphia Union were a game away from reaching MLS Cup in 2021 but had the unfortunate circumstance of missing 11 players due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols for their 2-1 Eastern Conference Final defeat to NYCFC.

Among those notably absent that day were goalkeeper Andre Blake, defender Jack Elliott, and captain Alejandro Bedoya.

Elliott and fellow center back Jakob Glenses will look to build on their impressive partnership in front of Blake, who conceded just 24 goals in 26 regular season games last season, helping Philadelphia to the second-best defensive record in the Eastern Conference.

After the offseason departure of 2021 top scorer Kacper Przybyłko, the Union will need consistent production up front from forward Mikael Uhre.

Uhre, who joined this offseason from Brøndby IF for a club-record $2.8 million, won the Golden Boot in the Danish Superliga last campaign and should give Philadelphia a different dimension in attack.

MLS Cup Contenders

New England Revolution to win MLS Cup (+650) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

The Revolution ran away with the Supporters’ Shield in 2021, setting the all-time MLS record with 73 points from 34 regular season games.

That success didn’t translate to the MLS Cup Playoffs, however, as New England saw its record-setting campaign come to an end in a home penalty shootout loss to NYCFC in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

The Revs are ready to run it back in 2022 with most of last year’s squad intact. 2021 MLS MVP Carles GilGustavo Bou, and Adam Buksa headline an attack that led the league with 65 goals during the regular season.

Oh, and Bruce Arena‘s squad is adding former USMNT striker Jozy Altidore to the mix. New England is the betting favorite for a reason.

Portland Timbers to Win MLS Cup (+1400) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

Dating back to 2015, only two teams have represented the Western Conference in MLS Cup: the Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers.

Last year’s host and runner-up should be in decent position to contend again this season, but the departures of club legend Diego Valeri and goalkeeper Steve Clark will have shaken things up a little bit in Portland.

The Timbers will need to find a serviceable solution in goal, but have been buoyed in the center of the park by the return of Sebastián Blanco. The midfield should remain a strength for Portland, especially with Diego Chara holding things down centrally and David Ayala and Marvin Loría primed for breakout campaigns.

Eryk Williamson, who tore his ACL in August, should also be fit in time for the business end of the season and could provide a big boost to this squad come the summer.

MLS Cup Sleepers

Toronto FC to Win MLS Cup (+2500) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

Toronto finished second from the bottom in the Eastern Conference last season, but you wouldn’t know that from looking at their odds.

Former U.S. Men’s National Team coach Bob Bradley will have a new-look squad to work with in his first season in charge as TFC has retooled in a big way.

Mexican international Carlos Salcedo will help shore up the defense and Italian standout winger Lorenzo Insigne will join the attacking fold this summer after his contract with Napoli runs out.

Adding those pieces to a core that includes 2020 MLS MVP Alejandro Pozuelo, former USMNT midfielder Michael Bradley, and a load of youngsters ready to make the jump, TFC could turn things around quickly.

FC Dallas to win MLS Cup (+6600) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

FC Dallas is known more as a talent factory than a perennial contender, which makes a lot of sense given they’ve sold on homegrown talents like Ricardo Pepi ($18 million), Bryan Reynolds ($7.4 million), and Tanner Tessman ($4 million) to European clubs in the past few years.

The club has re-invested some of those funds by sending $2 million to D.C. United for U.S. Men’s National Team winger Paul Arriola and signing 19-year-old Argentine prospect Alan Velasco for a club-record $7 million.

Adding those two into a group of young, talented players like Jesús Ferreira and Paxton Pomykal, both of whom have earned caps for the USMNT and should have big seasons ahead, could put Dallas in the mix for a return to the playoffs.
