How To Bet On MLS Eastern Conference

Major League Soccer (MLS) Eastern Conference is fiercely contested and hugely entertaining. It also offers many opportunities for savvy sports bettors. Thanks to the way the MLS is structured, you can place wagers on individual matches during the regular season and the playoffs beyond that. D.C United have won six regular season titles, the last in 2014, and five MLS Cups. Sporting Kansas City and Columbus Crew SC have been regular season champions twice each over the past eight years, with the big spending New York Red Bulls winning three, including in 2015.

The 2016 Eastern Conference final was one of the best, if not the best in recent history.  Toronto and Montreal Impact squared off knowing that the winner would be representing Canada in the MLS Cup final.
