- The Portland Timbers have +200 odds as the betting favorites to win the MLS Cup.
- The New England Revolution are +225 but have to get past New York City FC in the conference semifinals.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The MLS Playoffs are nearing the finals and just five teams remain in contention for the MLS Cup. However, one of the favorites still needs to advance to the conference finals.
MLS Cup Winner
- Portland Timbers +200
- New England Revolution +225
- Philadelphia Union +350
- Real Salt Lake +600
- New York City FC +800
The New England Revolution are likely the best team in the MLS as they led the league in points, goals scored and goal differential. However, the reason why soccer betting sites don’t have them as the favorite is that they still have their conference semifinal game to compete in.
They’re favored in the matchup, but it’s far from a guaranteed win.
Revolution vs NYC FC Odds
- New England Revolution +115
- New York City FC +220
- Draw +255
The Revolution’s opponent, New York City FC, could very well be the second-best team in the league. They had the second-best goal differential (+20), scored the third-most goals (56) and allowed the sixth-fewest goals in the league (36).
Although New York City FC has the longest odds on the board at +800, their odds would drop significantly if they were to beat New England on Tuesday. At the same time, betting on the Revolution could bring value since if they were to win their odds would shorten, likely making them the favorites to win the MLS Cup.

Avoid Betting The Favorite: Portland Timbers (+200)
Avoid betting on the Timbers as they have just a +4 scoring differential this season - barely cracking into the top 10 of the MLS.
