The 2008 MLS regular season saw a number of upsets and exciting games. The New York Red Bulls surprised many fans and clinched a spot in the playoffs for the MLS Cup odds, beating the defending MLS Cup betting champions, Houston Dynamo.
MLS Cup betting fans will have something to look forward to as Red Bulls star and November MLS Player of the Month Juan Pablo Angel looks to lead his team to victory against Real Salt Lake. A victory here would take the Red Bulls, who finished 5th in their conference for the season, into a position to face the winner of the Eastern Conference Championship for the MLS Cup betting title. MLS Cup odds do not look to be in favor of the Red Bulls, though, and this team will need to work hard to silence Salt Lake.
Real Salt Lake, boasting a mostly seasoned team, will not give up their opportunity to win the MLS Cup betting championship so easily. The Red Bulls will have to get through their tight defense. With the exception of Angel and John Wolyniec, New York’s offense is still very green and has yet to face any real defense, whereas Salt Lake’s defense has been tested and looks to be a potent force to be reckoned with.
MLS Cup betting fans cheered on as the Eastern Conference Semifinals took two teams on to face off for the championship and a shot at competing for the MLS Cup betting trophy: Columbus Crew and Chicago Fire.
After finishing up the first match with a tie, Crew came back to defeat the Kansas City Wizards for a shot at the Eastern Conference title. Columbus boasts a fairly experienced crew and looks ready to take on the Fire, bringing them one step closer to a possible MLS Cup betting win. Alejandro Moreno is a valuable asset for this team’s MLS Cup odds. With 6 years on the team, the 29-year-old forward from Venezuela helped the team excel throughout the 2008 season to the top position in the MLS Cup betting Eastern Conference with 57 points.
MLS Cup betting enthusiasts watched Chicago Fire shut out the New England Revolution with a total 3-0 victory. The Men in Red have a fighting chance to face off against Crew and a shot at the MLS Cup betting title with an experienced goalkeeper by the name of Jon Busch, and forward Chris Rolfe who helped propel the team from Illinois into the semifinals and up the ladder in MLS Cup odds.
