MLS Free Bets For New Customers
Now you may not consider the USA to be a hot-bed of football betting action, but with growing exposure of Major League Soccer (MLS) in the UK there are plenty of betting opportunities to be had. For a long time it has been derided as a sub standard league, where Americans scandalously refer to the beautiful game as soccer! However attitudes have slowly but surely started to turn around with the standard of football improving year on year. The impact of the likes of David Beckham (who now has his own MLS club) and Wayne Rooney has increased the league's profile. Bookmakers now offer odds on all the games played in this league.
With the MLS league season continuing right through the summer months when the European leagues have ended, it provides a much needed compliment of fixtures at a time of more limited action. Here at FREEbets.org.uk we give you all the vital information about claiming your MLS free bets.

The Play-offs are slightly complicated as teams finished 2-7 meet in a seeded first round, with the table-toppers getting a bye to the semi-finals.
In the Eastern Conference, the big shock was Toronto FC beating New York City FC in the semi-finals to set up a Conference Final against Atlanta United, who comfortably came through against New England Revolution and Philadelphia Union without conceding a goal.
The Western Conference went as could be expected as far as the Conference Final, with Los Angeles FC and Seattle Sounders, the top two teams in the conference, progressing to the final.
However, the conference finals then threw up a couple of shocks, most notably as Los Angeles FC were beaten by Seattle despite dominating the entire season, losing 3-1. The Eastern Conference saw Toronto FC beat Atlanta 2-1 to set-up an unlikely final, although a repeat of the final from two years ago.
Seattle went on to win the MLS Final 3-1 in an unusual game which saw Toronto enjoy 65% possession but could not make it pay. Goals from Kelvin Leerdan, Victor Rodriguez and Manuel Ruidiaz were enough to give the Sounders the victory with just a late consolation from Jozy Altidore for the Canadians.
The victory gave the Sounders their second MLS Cup after first winning it in 2016, with Rodriguez named the MLS Cup MVP.

After deciding on your bookmaker or welcome offer of choice, simply click on of the many banners or links found on this page and sign-up for a new account. After registering, you may have to make a minimum deposit amount before then proceeding to make your first bet.
Once your first bet has been settled, you will be able to use your MLS free bet on a market of your choice related to the league.
Despite the growing popularity of the MLS, the available betting markets are not quite as extensive as with the big European leagues. For example the MLS is one of the few football leagues in the world that does not operate a promotion or relegation structure. Therefore the usually popular relegation market is unavailable and betting largely revolves around the winner of the MLS Cup and Supporters Shield and also the individual match markets.

2020 MLS Season
The new season got underway on 29 February but was suspended in March after teams had played just two games each. From July 8, the MLS is Back Tournament was held with all the matches taking place at the ESPN World Wide of Sports Complex in Walt Disney World.
The group matches counted towards the regular MLS table. Portland Timbers beat Orlando City in the final and qualify for the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League.
This year sees the arrival of two new clubs, Inter Miami CF and Nashville SC. The former are playing in the Eastern Conference and the latter in the Western Conference. There is much excitement about the addition of Inter Miami as their co-owner and president is a certain David Beckham.
Uruguayan coach Diego Alonso will manage the side, while they continue to be linked with superstars such as Gareth Bale, David Silva and Edinson Cavani. However, their biggest signings remain the likes of Matias Pellegrini and Victor Ulloa, although they have picked up exciting talent Robbie Robinson as first pick in the MLS SuperDraft.
Thierry Henry arrives as a manager in MLS, taking charge of Montreal Impact, while former Celtic boss Ronny Deila is the new manager of New York City FC and Raphael Wicky is the new boss of Chicago Fire. After their impressive campaign in the Western Conference last year, Los Angeles FC are favourites to win the MLS Cup in 2020, ahead of Atlanta United.
