MLS odds (Tuesday links)

MLS Logo.jpgI had some MLS odds sent to me from Bovada, an online sports betting site. The message claims these are for an “MLS Outright Winner” and I’ll assume that’s loose language for MLS Cup winner.

Here’s what they had:

1. Los Angeles Galaxy — 2/1

2. Seattle Sounders FC — 5/1

3. Real Salt Lake — 7/1

T-4. Sporting Kansas City, FC Dallas — 8/1

T-6. New York Red Bulls, Colorado Rapids, Houston Dynamo — 12/1

T-9. Philadelphia Union, Columbus Crew — 18/1

T-11. Chicago Fire, Portland Timbers — 25/1

T-13. New England Revolution, San Jose Earthquakes, D.C. United — 33/1

T-16. Chivas USA, Toronto FC — 40/1

T-18. Vancouver Whitecaps, Montreal Impact — 66/1

What do you think about the Sounders’ odd? Anyone else you think is particularly overrated or underrated?

The team website has some updates on community events, including an America SCORES Guest Bartender Night at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Great Nabob in Queen Anne.

It’s a 21-and-older event that will start at 1 p.m., be located at the corner of Occidental Avenue and South Washington Street, and feature a large beer garden, food and full bar. You can purchase an ECS membership (I believe they’re closing on 4,000) and try the new No Equal Amber Lager, a collaboration with RedHook.
