Betting on Soccer in the MLS West

In most US sports the betting on soccer action in the MLS is broken down into the East and West conference.

The West has won the MLS betting on soccer title the last two years in a row no doubt wants a third consecutive soccer betting title to go with it. But so far the collective record of the teams in the betting on soccer teams in the West trails that of its Eastern Conference contemporary and there’s certainly some ground to be made up before the playoff soccer betting begins.

Through the first third of the season the class of the Western Conference has been the LA Galaxy. David Beckham has proved to be worth the monster transfer fee and the team has reaped the reward in its top betting on soccer position in the standings. And no player has benefited more from Beckham’s arrive in MLS betting on soccer than teammate Landon Donovan. A crafty scorer who never had the help he needed has now emerged as the top goal poacher in MLS betting on soccer competition and re-writes the soccer betting scoring records in the League. After 13 games the Galaxy has 21 point and is one pace to finish with the best record in MLS betting on soccer.

Just behind the Galaxy with 19 points through 14 games is Real Salt Lake. A team that was nearly as bad as the Galaxy last year has made major strides in this seasons betting on soccer action. Just as in the Eastern conference betting on soccer action the rankings have been flipped this season in the west with the cellar dwellers of the 2007 betting on soccer action rising to top of the standings in the 2008 soccer betting. After shipping off Freddie Adu to Portugal, this team finally appears to have some cohesion and steady defense as well good ball distribution have helped to put this team near the top of the betting on soccer leader board.

Defending MLS betting on soccer champ Dynamo Houston has been disappointing through 14 games but still hangs in the third spot. Still the best defensive team in the MLS betting on soccer by a wide margin, Houston should not be counted out. This squad always seems to turn up its play when in its needed most and will challenge again when the betting on soccer playoffs roll around.
