MLS Outright Winner: Who Is The Top Pick?

MLS 2022 Predictions

Other teams like Austin FC (+2000), FC Dallas (+1600) deserve a mention, after a great start to the season. Although five-time champions LA Galaxy are always worthy of being mentioned in these discussions, it is hard to imagine any one of them winning the entire championship.

It’ll come down to just three teams. Los Angeles FC has strength in numbers and Philadelphia Union is now in its best season. Los Angeles FC must take their league form into the playoffs. While that is not a sure thing, a Carlos Vela fit will give them a chance.

There’s still much to do, but New York City FC is hard to ignore. They are still the most likely team to win the MLS Cup, despite the odds. Los Angeles FC is also a better option. These guys are definitely worth it.

Favorites to Win the MLS 2022 Outright

New York City FC (+450)

They’ve been one of the best teams in the league for a few seasons now and they’re arguably the best run club of them all. Their football is attractive, they develop youth and only enter the market when it’s necessary. This season, they were awarded silverware.

Now that they have a taste, they will be more relaxed heading into the new season. This season, Thiago Andrade, Santiago Rodriguez, and Valentin Castellanos have all been great. The team is one of the two favorite teams with excellent odds to win the MLS Cup. This is the team no one wants to play in the playoffs.

Los Angeles FC (+500)

Los Angeles FC must have been extremely disappointed to have not made the playoffs last season. Although their numbers suggest that they are a little unlucky, there isn’t much to worry about this season. The team is the most dominant in the league.

Carlos Vela is LAFC’s top scorer and has scored six 29 goals. However, it has been the bench that has helped them to the top. They have shared the goals and they aren’t as heliocentric when attacking. Vela experienced some dry periods this season, which just shows how important the 5-sub rule is. Los Angeles FC is well-worth the favorite tag, with a four point lead in the division and points flowing.

Philadelphia Union (+850)

The Philadelphia Union have assembled a side to win it all this time and they’ve done well so far by getting 25 points on board and sitting in second place in the Eastern Conference standings. Daniel Gazdag. Kai Wagner and Julian Carranza were in excellent form and they will try to correct the problems from last season.

After a promising start to the season they had played too many draws. They were having trouble managing the games and eventually gave up. Their defense is unmatched and can take them far. These are a great value pick.

MLS 2022 Outright Winner Outside Picks

New England Revolution (+2000)

It’s a bit of a surprise that New England Revolution are so high on the odds list. Although they were expecting a decline in performance from the previous season due to an increase in their underlying metrics, it is still surprising to see them so far down.

There have been some mitigating factors in the shape of injuries. Gustavo Bou and Adam Buksa were not available during the first part of the season. Andrew Farrell and Henry Kessler, who were the center-back starting pairing, also missed some parts of the season. Matt Turner sustained a foot injury. Club Brugge has also seen the departure of Tajon Buchanan (one their brightest players from last season).

They were also the recipients of many late winners earlier in the season. Bruce Arena failed to adjust to the changes in setup due to injuries. It has been a costly mistake. They’re still a strong team at full strength. But they need to be focusing now on the playoffs and not too much further ahead, like with the MLS Cup. Do not lose time and money on them.

Best on MLS here!
