When Do We Release MLS Predictions?
With the majority of MLS games being scheduled on the weekends, the MLS predictions and football tips will often be up at the start of the week on either Monday or Tuesday. For midweek games there will be information available during the weekend, in order to give punters a suitable amount of time to analyse the teams.
A lot of people tend to believe that you can telegraph what’s going to happen in Major League Soccer more so than you can elsewhere, but we honestly believe that couldn’t be any further from the truth.
This is an exciting league full of many twists and turns, and because it’s so young, the possibilities are endless for what the next few years could hold.
MLS Predictions by FootballPredictions.com
Major League Soccer is the premier football league in the United States of America, and it’s been that way ever since the first season came to fruition in 1996. As a part of the CONCACAF, the MLS plays host to three Canadian teams with the rest stemming from the United States, currently being 24 operational teams on a week to week basis.
Summers are for MLS
The regular season runs from March all the way through until October, with the team with the best record being given the Supporters’ Shield. From that point on 14 teams compete in the MLS Cup Playoffs, before eventually being dwindled down to two: who then compete in the MLS Cup.
The MLS keeps on rising
The league struggled in its first few seasons but has really come firing out of the blocks in the last decade or so, with the signings of star players from around the world certainly helping. They get higher average crowds than the NBA and NHL, with the most successful team being LA Galaxy from Los Angeles (5 MLS Cups and 4 Supporters Shields).
MLS Tips, Predictions and Betting advice
It’ll go without saying to a lot of folks out there, but you should probably look for the superstars. Whilst the likes of Wayne Rooney, Carlos Vela and Zlatan Ibrahimovic aren’t going to single-handedly lead their team to victory every week, they’re certainly going to play influential roles. With that in mind, you should take a real hard look at the starting XIs – because defensively speaking, there’s a lot of vulnerability on display in the MLS.
Tough and rough playing style
In addition to that, you should prepare for quite a few yellow and red cards throughout the course of most game weeks. These guys go in pretty hard on a regular basis, and with that kind of intensity, MLS tips that are based on standard play could go flying out of the window.
Mainly, though, when it comes to your MLS football predictions, keep an eye on momentum, because the American sports franchises thrive off of big runs late in the season. The allure of the playoffs always leads to teams upping their game, so if you’re betting late in the campaign, make sure to keep that in mind.
