Betting odds are, of course, wrong quite often, but the Seattle Sounders are currently installed as second-favorites to take MLS Cup home in the latest update from online gambling site Bovada. The only team being given better odds is Toronto FC, which comes in at +200. The Sounders are +225.
Translated, that means you’d stand to win $225 on a $100 bet. The Colorado Rapids are +300 and the Montreal Impact — the only team that can’t host the final — are +400.
This isn’t necessarily surprising, as the Sounders have been playing as well as any team in MLS over the past three months, going 10-3-3 in their past 16 matches. Toronto FC is currently on a 11-2-5 run over a similar period of time.
Also to be expected, the Sounders have been installed as favorites to win the series against the Rapids. The consensus of European bookmakers seems to be that they are 4:5 favorites, meaning you’d take home $180 on a $100 bet.
