Odds to Win MLS Cup: Seattle Favored over Toronto in Championship

Toronto FC will be vying for its second MLS Cup title win in three years as the team travels to Seattle to face the Sounders on Sunday in this year’s championship match as lengthy +300 underdogs on the moneyline at sportsbooks.

This weekend’s contest marks the third time in four years that these two clubs have met in the MLS Cup Final. The Sounders escaped with a narrow 5-4 win on penalties in the battle for the 2016 MLS Cup in Seattle, but came out on the wrong end of a 2-0 decision in Toronto a year later as TFC raised the hardware for the first time in franchise history.

The Reds punched their ticket to the final with a stunning 2-1 upset of defending champion Atlanta United last Wednesday, and are now undefeated in 13 straight outings ahead of Sunday afternoon’s matchup at CenturyLink Field.

Toronto FC Enjoyed Late-Season Turnaround

TFC’s recent steady play comes in stark contrast to a dismal 3-5-8 win-draw-loss run earlier this season that threatened to bounce the club from the playoff picture. The Reds subsequently clawed their way into fourth place on the MLS Eastern Conference table with a steady, if not spectacular, 4-6-0 run to close out the regular season, but saved their best performances for the playoffs.

The Reds posted a stunning 5-1 rout of DC United at BMO Field in their only home date of the playoffs, and followed up by knocking off heavily favored New York City FC by a 2-1 margin before punching their ticket to the MLS Cup Final by upending Atlanta.

Toronto’s playoff success has lifted the Reds to 4-5-1 in their past 10 road dates. However, concerns exist over the uncertain status of Jozy Altidore, who remains out with an injury that has sidelined him since the final match of the regular season. The Reds have also dropped two straight to Seattle since their win in the 2017 MLS Cup Final.

Sounders Peaking Ahead of MLS Cup Final

The Sounders prepare for Sunday’s contest set as -110 favorites on the moneyline after stunning the championship favorite Los Angeles FC with a decisive 3-1 road victory in last week’s Western Conference Final. The club now returns home riding a three-match win streak, and has gone undefeated in seven straight league dates on home turf while scoring three or more goals in four of those contests.

Seattle also proved to be one of the most reliable home teams in the league during the regular season, compiling a sparkling 11-4-2 record, which has helped lift the Sounders to heavy -225 chalk at Bovada to lift the MLS Cup following Sunday’s match.
