LA Galaxy Betting Odds
The Los Angeles Galaxy are a staple of Major League Soccer and one of the most famous franchises in the sport.
LA leads the way with more MLS Cups (five) than any other team. Famous Galaxy players over the years include David Beckham, Landon Donovan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robbie Keane, to name a few. This combination of history and big names has made the Galaxy a popular soccer betting option at legal online sportsbooks.
Sports betting in California is not legal, but a social sportsbook provides bettors in California one option:

When California online sportsbooks are live, below you’ll find live Galaxy odds direct from legal, regulated sportsbooks.
How to bet on Galaxy games
While sports betting is not legal in California, here is how you would create an account at a legal sportsbook if the state eventually allows the activity:
- Create a new account by inputting personal information (name, address, etc.).
- Download a sportsbook app if you plan to bet via mobile device.
- Claim any bonuses and deposit some money into your account.
- Navigate to the proper page for betting on MLS.
Galaxy betting lines explained
Here is a mock sample of LA Galaxy odds that you might see at California sports betting sites if the state ever legalizes online sportsbooks. This includes such potential books as BetMGM California, FanDuel, DraftKings Sportsbook and Caesars.
|LA Galaxy||+1.5 (-390)||+155||Over 2.5 (-110)|
|Portland Timbers||-1.5 (+275)||-175||Under 2.5 (-110)|
The first numbers on the left (+/- 1.5) represent the point spread. In this case, the LA Galaxy are the underdogs (+1.5). They start with a 1.5 goal advantage if you bet on them on the spread. Your bet wins if they win the game outright, draw or lose by just one goal. If you bet on Portland (-1.5), the Timbers would need to win by at least two goals for your bet to cash.
The numbers in the middle (+155, -175) represent the moneyline. This is a wager on which team you think will win the game outright. As the Galaxy are underdogs, a bet on them to win at +155 gives you pretty good odds. Here’s a look at what you would win betting on the moneyline:
- A $100 moneyline bet on the Galaxy would win you $155 in profit if correct.
- A $175 bet on Portland (-175) would win you $100 in profit if correct.
Note that because ties are relatively common in soccer, there are actually a couple of ways to place moneyline bets. The above example, where your only options are betting on either team to win, is what sportsbooks refer to as “draw no bet.” In this case, if the game ends in a draw and you had bet on one of the teams, you would neither win nor lose your bet. The sportsbook would treat it as a push or “no bet” and refund your wager. The other way to wager is a three-way moneyline. This gives you the option to bet on the game ending in a tie as well as betting on either team to win.
The final line (over/under 2.5) is the total. This is a bet on the total combined score of the game. If you bet the over and Galaxy and Timber combined for three or more goals (i.e., 2-1), you would win. But if the final score ended up being 1-0, you would lose your bet and under bettors would win.
Galaxy player props and futures
Prop bets are another option for betting on the Galaxy and soccer in general. These are bets on specific occurrences that might happen within a game. Here are some example props you might be able to wager on:
- The first team to score.
- Number of corner kicks.
- Player X to score first.
- Player X to score at any point in the game.
Another option would be LA Galaxy futures. These bets play out over a more extended period and often take the entire season to determine. Futures can be for both team or individual player milestones. Here are some examples of potential MLS futures bets:
- LA Galaxy to win the MLS Cup.
- LA Galaxy to make the playoffs.
- Javier Hernandez to win the Golden Boot (most goals).
Galaxy live betting
While pregame lines on point spreads, moneylines and totals may change slightly in the runup to the start of a game, when you’re betting on a game live, the numbers can change drastically to account for action happening on the field. Because goals are rare in soccer, just one can radically swing the betting lines. Here are some examples of soccer live betting options:
- Adjusted point spreads
- Next team to score
- Team to win rest of game
