MLS Western Conference Betting Lines

Similar to the east, the western conference of the MLS started out with five teams in 1996 and has since doubled thanks to expansion. Following the pattern of the NBA and NHL, the west has been the superior half of Major League Soccer, winning more Supporters’ Shields and MLS Cups than eastern rivals. Due to this historic dominance, when betting on MLS western conference action, most fans of soccer wagering usually lean to teams out of the west when choosing between conferences.

Bet On MLS Western Conference Games

The L.A. Galaxy have been the superpowers of the western conference for the entire history of the MLS, earning a total of nine western titles. Perhaps most impressive were the Galaxy run of three MLS Cups in four years between 2011 and 2014, giving them a total of five MLS Cups. Unlike D.C. United – the east’s most successful team – the L.A. Galaxy pulled off this feat while the quality of Major League Soccer has never been better, attracting more international stars than ever.

Compared to the east, the western conference has produced more than double the number of MLS Cup champions, with the Portland Timbers and the L.A. Galaxy sharing the majority of the wins since the year 2010. Interestingly enough, the west has only started to dominate the Supporters’ Shield award, perhaps providing a hint that the eastern conference top teams have had less competition to deal with during the regular season. In addition to taking home the most championships, a western conference team has earned the Supporters’ Shield more often than the east since 2010.

While the L.A. Galaxy have been the marquee team of the MLS, attracting international free agents similar to how the New York Yankees attract all the biggest names, the San Jose Earthquakes, Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo have all managed to win multiple MLS Cup trophies, and should be considered among the second tier of contenders, along with the newly reinvigorated Portland Timbers. There’s little reason to believe that the eastern conference will start to overwhelm the west on a regular basis, which means that you can expect that betting on western teams to win will be a fairly safe wager in the near future.
