2020 MLS Odds: Odds to Win the MLS Cup

As was the case with all other major sports leagues, MLS experienced an abrupt pause to their 2020 season when the coronavirus pandemic swept through North America. The season started in late February and ran for just two weeks before it shut down on March 12. In May, players began to return to training camps, and a couple months later, the “MLS is Back” tournament took place in a Florida bubble. The regular season resumed after the tournament, and the 2020 MLS Cup has been pushed to December.  

MLS Odds Breakdown

The Portland Timbers may have won the MLS is Back tournament, but with +1400 MLS Vegas odds, you won’t find them in the following top five clubs at Bodog Sportsbook. 

Seattle Sounders: +450 MLS Odds

Tied for the top of the Western standings with Portland at 30 points (nine wins, four losses, three ties), the Seattle Sounders are looking to repeat as champs, and their league-leading +18 goal differential certainly makes a case for them. Unfortunately, forward Raul Ruidiaz contracted COVID-19 while in Peru with the national team and will need to isolate before returning to Seattle. 

Toronto FC: +550 MLS Odds

Toronto FC is standing tall with +550 MLS Cup odds, the best record in the league (11 wins, two losses, five ties) and top spot on the Power Rankings. A 1-1 draw with the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday ended their five-game win streak, but they’ve already clinched a playoff spot, just as Jozy Altidore will be missing the next four to six weeks with a hamstring injury. That’ll give Ayo Akinola ample opportunity to continue his dominant play. 

Los Angeles FC: +700 MLS Odds

With +700 odds to win the 2020 MLS Cup, LAFC is fourth in the Western Standings with 24 points (seven wins, six losses, three ties) and has a +6 goal differential entering their Sunday matchup with the Portland Timbers. They have the league’s top goal scorer in Diego Rossi (12 goals in 15 appearances), but he’ll miss several games as he heads to his native Uruguay to play on the national team. 

Philadelphia Union: +700 MLS Odds

Second on the MLS Power Rankings and fourth on the MLS lines, Philadelphia Union is one beat behind Toronto with a record that includes 10 wins, three losses and five draws. Their +16 goal differential surpasses Toronto’s (+12) and has been generated by stingy defense that’s conceded just 16 goals in 18 games (second-best in the league). Defender Mark McKenzie has anchored that defense, and his late goal against DC United on Wednesday secured Philadelphia’s playoff berth.

Orlando City SC: +800 MLS Odds

Orlando City SC made it all the way to the tournament final, where they lost 2-1 to Portland despite controlling the ball for the majority of the game. They lost one game right after the event but haven’t lost since. Their eight wins, two losses and seven ties for 31 points puts them fourth in the competitive East and just within playoff boundaries.  

The full list of MLS betting lines is available in the Soccer section of Bodog Sportsbook.
