Odds to Win MLS is Back Tournament

Much like the NBA and its planned bubble experiment in Orlando, Florida, Major League Soccer has made the trek to the Sunshine State for the MLS is Back Tournament and a West Coast team leads the oddsboard to take home the trophy.

Los Angeles FC is the current favorite to win the MLS is Back tourney, with LA at +400 according to the best soccer betting sites and ready for its first group game today vs the Houston Dynamo. It’s worth noting that LAFC is short-handed as reigning MLS MVP Carlos Vela has opted out of playing in Orlando.

The MLS is Back Tournament borrows elements from international tournament formats with group and knockout stages for 24 teams participating. 


The group stage games count in the MLS regular-season standings while the Sportsbook of the tourney will earn a berth in the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League.

Below we list odds to win the tournament, current groups and more detail on the format. If this is your first time betting soccer or you need a refresher, check out our How to Bet Soccer guide to get up to speed.
