MLS or Major League Soccer is the North American version of the League though with one important difference: teams cannot be promoted to it or indeed relegated from it.

The MLS season runs throughout most of the year, from March to December, where each of the 19 teams in the league plays a total of 34 games. At the end of the regular season there is a series of playoffs during which each of the top ten teams compete for the coveted MLS cup.

LA Galaxy, David Beckham’s old team, won the MLS Cup in 2012 as it had done in 2011 and even without Beckham playing the team is looking powerful, and it will be even more so should the rumoured transfer of Frank Lampard to it actually occur however, until the bookmakers start posting odds for the forthcoming season it is difficult to get an overview as to where the land lies.

The various drafts are over, the teams are in training and are playing the occasional exhibition match, and the Walt Disney World professional Soccer Classic did provide the opportunity to get a glimpse of some of this year’s young guns.

If you are getting a little frustrated at waiting for the MLS betting to kick off, why not log on to an online casino like for some exciting football related betting on the slots? One particular football slot game that has been receiving a considerable amount of attention of late is Soccer Safari.

Rather than North America this football styled slot is based in South Africa and the various players are styled as animals from the jungle, which adds a great fun element to the game that was created in celebration of the 2010 Football World Cup. You might even try your luck at roulette and blackjack while you are there, but check back soon for some MLS betting odds.
