To find these stats faster next time, search “TPP MLS League Stats” on Google. If the stats on this page have not updated, then please clear your cache.

The league standings provide the ultimate indicator of a team’s performance.

Our table features data that details more than mere wins, draws, losses, and points. Goals scored and against figures are also included, offering insights into how well teams are performing in attack and defensively. Moreover, we provide a form column that includes every team’s previous five results.

While form guides are tough to assess at the start of the MLS season, they’ll certainly help gauge trends and patterns once the season is well underway.

MLS have unveiled the entire schedule for the 2024 season, so you can see every team’s regular season fixtures.

Fixture lists and schedules are invaluable tools for bettors to anticipate upcoming matches. For instance, a team might rest key players for a fixture against a supposed easier opponent if they have a tougher fixture a few days after. Moreover, superior teams are more likely to generate impressive attacking stats against those that are struggling, while inferior sides tend to dominate the defensive stats columns, such as tackles and fouls.

Our MLS fixture list also includes best odds guaranteed to ensure you can maximize your profits when betting on MLS.

There are an array of MLS player stats markets available when betting on the league, offering brilliant opportunities for both pre-match and especially in-play betting.

Football bettors love to attack goalscorer markets, but the prominence of shots markets has also surged. You can bet on how many shots and shots on-target particular players will have in individual MLS markets.

The below table depicts the sharpest shooters in MLS 2023.

It’s always worth keeping up to date with the numbers when placing prop bets associated with MLS player stats. Other popular markets include card betting, tackles, and fouls. Such statistics are easily accessible, with our tools allowing you to see the various MLS stat leaders.

Chris Wondolowski is a name you might not be familiar with, but the former San Jose Earthquakes star is the most prolific goalscorer in MLS history. The American, who scored 11 times in 35 appearances for the USMNT, netted 174 MLS goals in 422 games.

American football icon Landon Donovan held the record for a while as he scored 170 MLS goals before his tally was usurped by Wondolowski in 2021.

It appears that Wondolowski’s record will remain unchallenged for quite some time. Josef Martinez is the only current player who sits in the top ten all-time goalscorers, but the Venezuelan striker is still 64 goals away.

Here are the ten leading scorers in MLS history:

Goalkeepers play a crucial role to a team’s success, and the performance of one side’s goalkeeper can significantly influence your betting decisions.

MLS hasn’t exactly been blessed with a ton of talented shot-stoppers, although the likes of Matt Turner, Vito Mannone, and Brad Guzan — all of whom are MLS Goalkeeper of the Year winners — have appeared in the Premier League. The 2023 winner of the award, Roman Burki, is formerly of Borussia Dortmund.

Jamaican international Andre Blake is a record three-time winner.

Below is a list of the most recent MLS Goalkeeper of the Year winners:

Bookies are starting to diversify their MLS coverage, which means more markets are becoming available to bet on.

As a result, assessing form guides and leading scorers isn’t going to cut the mustard if you're looking to bet on various markets. Fortunately, our MLS stats center has got you covered, with an endless list of stats spanning both teams to score, over/unders, corners, and a whole lot more.

For each MLS stat, teams are ranked from top to bottom. We also recommend you tick the per 90 minutes box to gauge an average when betting on an individual match. You can search for a particular team, too, hastening the process.

Following its establishment in 1993 and subsequent inaugural season three years later, 31 teams have competed in MLS. 15 have won at least one MLS Cup.

According to Opta, MLS is ranked as the 15th-strongest football league in the world.

The MLS Cup is the ultimate prize — MLS’ answer to the Super Bowl. However, there’s also the Leagues Cup. This competition is made up of American and Mexican teams, taking place during the MLS mid-season break.

The minimum salary for the first 24 players on each MLS roster is $85,444. For reserve players, the minimum is $65,500.

Saudi Pro League (SPL) has gained plenty of prominence and has been able to attract an array of European stars. However, Opta still ranks MLS as stronger than the SPL. While MLS is ranked 15th, the Opta place the SPL in 27th.

There are few leagues like MLS, so it’s hard to compare it to others in terms of structure. However, when it comes to quality, MLS, according to Opta, is comparable to the Austrian Bundesliga and Danish Superliga.

Big sports fan specialising in football. Experienced the lows of Vlad Chiriches and Tim Sherwood as a Spurs fan along with the more recent ‘success’ under Pochettino. My following of the New England Patriots since 2012 somewhat makes up for the lack of silverware produced by Spurs in my lifetime.
