Taking down Atlanta United in hostile territory over the weekend, the New York Red Bulls did the impossible and in the process claimed top spot in the Major League Soccer power Positions and Jumped to +800 from the Chances to win the MLS Cup in BetOnline.
8/1 is a far cry from the 20/1 value the Bulls were being given at a couple of short weeks ago and if you listened to my advice, you’re sitting pretty with a +2000 New York futures .
If you didn’t, and still want to wager on New York at +800, I would say go ahead. The Red Bulls have shown that they belong among the elite in Major League Soccer with league victories against NYCFC and Atlanta, a deep run in CONCACAF Champions League along with also a semifinal MLS Cup campaign last season.
There wasn’t a ton of other motion on the board but Toronto FC did manage to creep out of +1400 to +1200, earning a 2-1 home win vs Orlando City on Friday.
It looks like TFC could be turning a corner onto the straight and narrow and as soon as they begin to heal up, they’ll be a squad not to be trifled with. Your time to receive any sort of value on the Reds is quickly evaporating.

Atlanta United stumbled a bit last week but The Five Stripes managed to keep top spot from the chances to win the MLS Cup with their overall points lead still intact. They will be challenged from the streaking New York Red Bulls this weekend, though, and an upset could be in the offing in the Dirty South.
Dropping from +400 to +500 in the likelihood at BetOnline, Atlanta showed a chink in the armor and opened the door to groups like NYCFC, Orlando City and, of course, their opponents this weekend.
The Red Bulls have climbed all of the way to +1200 in the chances after sitting at +2000 last week and they are well primed to take over top spot in the Major League Soccer power positions with a win in Atlanta.
I suggested New York as a value bet in MLS Cup futures last week’s update and at 12/1, that still feels good to me. Wait much longer, however, and you’ll be delivered down the Hudson River and to the ocean of no value.
Toronto toppled at the odds again after a week of toiling and things are beginning to look dire with Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore both set to miss Friday’s fixture against a stoked Orlando City side.
You are getting a wonderful bit of worth at +1400 for TFC and while it may seem asinine to suggest that they’re still the best team in MLS, » I have not seen enough to dethrone the Reds. This is going to take some patience but the benefits could be glorious when we’re disciplined.
Atlanta United continued its reign over Major League Soccer over the weekend, extinguishing the Fire 2-1 at Chicago and along with keeping their name as the favorites to win the MLS Cup, the Five Stripes took over first place in the Eastern Conference and the entire standings.
