LA, Atlanta Favored To Win MLS Cup Despite Season Tournaments Canceled

  • The MLS is canceling the All-Star Game, Leagues Cup, and Campeones Cup for the 2020 regular season.
  • Before the pandemic stopped the season, Los Angeles (+333) and Atlanta (+750) were atop the odds board.

NEW YORK - Major League Soccer announced on Tuesday that they will be canceling three of their in-season tournaments for the 2020 season.

The All-Star Game, Leagues Cup and Campeones Cup will not happen this year but will return for the 2021 season.

The All-Star Game was to be played on July 29, The Leagues Cup would have been scheduled between July and September, and The Campeones Cup would have started on August 12.

The MLS is one of the professional sports that had to suspend their season due to COVID-19 and are avidly working to find ways to get back to regular competition soon.

This is a step to get the regular season up and running because by canceling the MLS tournaments, it will allow more time for regular-season matchups to be rescheduled.

The league is focused on getting all the regular season played so that someone can claim the 2020 MLS Cup. Before the season was suspended, MLS betting odds favored Los Angeles FC by a strong margin.

Who will win the 2020 MLS Cup

  • Los Angeles FC +333
  • Atlanta United +750
  • Toronto FC +1000
  • New York City FC +1200

Each team in the leagues had only played less than three games before the shutdown. Still, without any news to change the odds, bettors can go to online sportsbooks to get in their soccer action before the league resumes play.
