With just over a third of the MLS season complete, bettors have an improved understanding of which team could go all the way and win MLS Cup 2022.

The Philadelphia Union lead all teams in handle percentage (i.e. total money wagered) and are second in percentage of tickets (i.e. individual bets made) at 31.5% and 17.2% respectively, according to BetMGM.

The Union are currently atop the Eastern Conference table (5W-1L-6D) but find themselves amid a lull in form, recording five straight league draws and failing to win in their last seven matches across all competitions.

Nashville SC have the second-highest handle percentage at 17.1% and are the most bet-on team with a ticket percentage of 21.4%. The Coyotes are currently sixth in the Western Conference standings with a 5W-4L-3D record but are expected to close out the final two-thirds of the season strong given their home-heavy schedule from here on out.

Rounding out the top three, defending champions New York City FC have the third-highest handle percentage at 7.9% and are receiving 6.0% of the ticket percentage (fourth-highest).

The latest odds and betting action is below, per information from BetMGM, sorted by handle percentage.
