TFC 6-1 favourites to win MLS Cup with UK bookies

TFC has been made the 6-1 favourite to win this year's MLS Cup, after starting the year at 10-1, at leading UK bookmaker William Hill. Sporting KC and LA Galaxy are next, both at 7-1. You might say that TFC and LA are the only two MLS teams anyone has heard of in the UK and the Defoe hype is affecting the odds, but taking bets is a global business open to anyone with an internet connection and a credit card, so if the odds get too far out of line the "smart" money will come in on more tempting propositions (say Portland at 10-1, RSL at 14-1 or our friends up the 401 at 66-1). For the faithful you can get 15-4 on a TFC win this Saturday in Utah or 13-5 on a draw, highest odds for any away team this weekend other than the 6-1 offered on Chivas at New York.
