MLS Cup Top Contenders

  • [May 23] Less than two years removed from the club’s third-consecutive last place finish, FC Cincinnati continue to prove themselves as a title contender in 2023. For over a month, the Orange & Blue have been getting the best MLS Cup odds in the Eastern Conference, going as short as +600 this past week.
  • [May 1] Another club seeing a massive decline in odds since the start of the season is Sporting Kansas City. The only team without a win in 2023, SKC opened the season with cup odds averaging +2550, but now sit at a league-worst +17500.
  • [Apr 12] CF Montreal have fallen in a big way. Originally getting +1300 cup odds, L’Impact are now averaging +8250 after winning only one match out of six to open the season.
  • [Apr 4] A big away win over previously undefeated St. Louis has pushed Minnesota to fourth in the Western Conference and their cup odds to a season-low average of +2000.
  • [Mar 28] St. Louis SC continue their ascension up the MLS Cup Odds table. After starting the season at +10000, CITY SC’s perfect start of 5 wins in 5 games has earned the club odds as short as +1400.
  • [Mar 21] After opening the season with three wins and one draw, Atlanta United have climbed into the Top 5 for MLS Cup odds. The Five Stripes started the season with odds averaging at +2250, but after four matches are now getting +1300 to win their second title.
  • [Mar 14] Expansion St. Louis continue to roll.  They’re the only MLS side to have won their first 3 matches (for the moment) and their MLS Cup odds now average at +3750. At the other end of the table is last year’s expansion club, Charlotte FC. After losing their first three matches, their average cup odds have dropped from +4700 to start the season to +8750.
  • [Feb 28] No major movement at the top of the table after Week 1, but MLS debutantes St. Louis City SC saw their cup average odds drop by nearly half, from +10000 to +5750, after notching an away win in their inaugural match against Austin FC.
  • [Feb 21] Only a small number of teams have seen movement in their respective MLS Cup odds ahead of the season openers on February 25th. The average odds of Inter Miami (+2050), Toronto FC (+3450), and Portland Timbers (+3700) have all shortened since last week.
  • [Feb 13] With the kick-off to the regular season just under two weeks away, it’s the two finalists listed as early favorites for MLS Cup 2023. LAFC are favored at +400 odds, followed by Philadelphia at +600
