MLS Consensus Picks: MLS Public Betting Picks

There is currently no consensus data available for MLS

About MLS Consensus 

When you make a consensus pick it means that you are using your knowledge as a fan and taking into account what the sportsbooks have to say about a certain MLS matchup to make a wager. 

Here at Odds Shark, we gather data from some of the best sportsbooks across the world to aid you in your quest to make educated wagers. Use this information to bet against or with the public consensus. Some bettors feel like the public is never right and bet against the consensus. On the other hand, some bettors like to have more bettors on their side and will wager with the consensus. If you are a casual bettor, the consensus pick could be a good option for you. If you’re a seasoned bettor, you can use your betting expertise and the consensus data to make your MLS predictions. When you bet against the consensus, it is called “fading” the public.  

When sportsbooks (the place where you go to place your bet) set their lines, they assume you are going to bet with the public and not against it. This is how they make their money. However, if you look at the consensus data for the particular MLS matchup you are looking to bet on, you’ll be able to tell if you should bet with the public or fade them instead. 

Yet, when you look at consensus data to make your picks, it’s important to note that the numbers do not deal with the number of people betting a draw (tie). The numbers are only representative of those who are picking one side or the other.
