MLS Week 2 Betting Should be Off the Hook!

MLS Week 2 Betting Preview: After an exciting start to the 2023 MLS season, MLS week 2 betting should be just as exciting, if not more!

So this week, we’ll finally see the MLS champions play their first game.

There are a lot of matches to go over, so let’s dive right in.

Best Bets for MLS Week 2 Betting

MLS Week 2 Betting Preview Continued: After an exciting first week in MLS, sports bettors are foaming at the mouth at all the possibilities heading into the second week. However, three key matches can provide the best option for a good payout. Here are those three games and why they are perfect for MLS week 2 betting.

LAFC (-202) vs. Portland Timbers (+500)

Date & Time:

LAFC is coming off the back of winning the 2022 MLS Cup and is the favorite to win again this season. MLS had delayed the start of LAFC’s 2023 season because of the weather conditions that hit LA. Despite that, they are still the clear favorites against the Portland Timbers, who won their first match 1-0 against Sporting KC.

The Timbers are a dangerous team and have spoiled LAFC’s run before. It might be worth a risk betting on Portland at +500.

St. Louis City (+210) vs. Charlotte (+215)

Date & Time:

St. Louis was lucky to get their first win on their league debut. They came back and surprisingly won 3-2. No one would expect them to win their second game, especially against another newcomer like Charlotte. Charlotte barely lost to New England 0-1 and will look to bounce back.

Betting on either team would be a solid bet considering their both sit at +210 and +215, respectively. However, it would be safer to go with Charlotte as they are the better side on paper.

Seattle Sounders (-140) vs. Real Salt Lake (+360)

Date & Time:

In Conclusion of Our MLS Week 2 Betting Preview… The Seattle Sounders kicked off their 2023 campaign with a thumping 4-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids to top the west MLS standings, with Jordan Morris bagging a brace and assist. Meanwhile, Real Salt Lake came from behind to rescue a 2-1 win against the Vancouver Whitecaps. The Sounders will have two key players returning from injury so that both teams will be fully fit.

It is no secret that the Sounders endured a difficult 2022 season, but we shouldn’t forget that they have reached four of the previous seven MLS Cup finals – triumphing in 2016 and 2019. Seattle should bounce back this year, so back them to beat RSL.
