Most people looking to make a soccer bet pass over the MLS betting for European soccer betting. And while it may be true that the Primera Liga, the EPL and Seria A may all have better competition and better players, MLS betting is quickly closing the gap with these soccer betting giants.
MLS betting has grown rapidly in the past 12 years of its existence and has greatly improved the quality of its talent. In its inaugural season the MLS was little more than a minor league collection and presented very little in the way of MLS betting. Most of the players were unknown and the play was sloppy and there was, for all intents and purposes, little reason to engage in MLS betting. But things have drastically changed in the world of MLS betting since then. The skill level of player, the competition, the name recognition, every thing about the league has improved and MLS betting is now one of the most underrated soccer bets you can make.
Most fans that are looking to make a soccer bet now often consider MLS betting right along side betting on other bigger leagues in Europe. Much of that has to do with a savvy marketing campaign that the MLS betting backers have been engaged in over the past few years. With the new publicity and the aggressive marketing of MLS betting the sports profile has risen as accordingly, so has MLS betting.
MLS betting is still a step behind its European counterparts which is to be expected but it’s quickly closing the ground. The top European leagues have been around for more than a century and so it’s not realistic to think that MLS betting can over take their status in a little more than a decade. But perhaps in several decades we’ll see MLS betting right up there with the European leagues in terms of preference when it comes time to make a soccer bet.
