The MLS’s online soccer betting season is starting to take shape. Heading into Week 12’s action, it’s clear that this year’s season will be as competitive as ever, at least for the Western Conference. In the West, there are 4-teams who are right in the mix of things, all poised to make a leap for the spot in the Western Conference. In the East, things are starting to become hopeless for everyone besides Toronto FC, who owns a sizable lead over both Columbus and Orlando. We’re still a long ways off from the start of the postseason, but everyday it’s looking more and more like this will be Toronto FC’s season.

Toronto will get an opportunity to prove to players who bet on soccer matches online that they will indeed be going all the way this upcoming Friday when they face off against the New York Red Bulls on the road. Toronto enjoyed newfound success in 2016, when the club made a second-straight playoff appearance and even picked up the franchise’s first postseason victory. In addition, Toronto FC went on to break some attendance records in their playoff matches, all the way to the final where they ended up losing to the Seattle Sounders 5-4 on penalties after a rather boring goalless draw. It goes without saying that Toronto has gotten a taste of success and decided they particularly enjoy the flavor.

New York Red Bulls
Like Toronto, the Red Bulls are also coming off a highly successful season that saw the club finish 1st in the Conference, and 3rd overall in the MLS. In the postseason, New York was able to make it to the conference semifinals, where they lost to the Montreal Impact 1-3 in aggregate.
This season, New York hasn’t quite been able to find their way to the top of the Eastern Conference. So far, after competing in 12 matches, the Red Bulls have amassed a disappointing 5-1-6 (W-D-L) that nets the franchise 15 points on the season. With that tally, the Red Bulls rank 5th in the East, 1-point ahead of Chicago and 1-point behind NYC FC.
Toronto FC has competed in 12 games this season, and has amassed a rather impressive 7-4-1 record. With that combination of wins and draws, the Reds are sitting 25-points on the season. Toronto’s efforts have given them a 6-point lead over their nearest challenger.
