Do oddsmakers know something FC Dallas fans don’t heading into 2021?

FC Dallas is very high on the list for the odds to win MLS in 2021.

Every so often I receive an email with the latest odds for win MLS Cup as well as other leagues and events within MLS. Today was the first time the odds from BetOnline (, Twitter: @betonline_ag) were released for the 2021 season and FC Dallas is, well, very high on the list.

Yes, you are reading that correctly. Top of the list along side NYCFC and the Seattle Sounders with a 7/1 chance of winning it all in 2021.

That begs the question, what do these oddsmakers know that FC Dallas fans don’t heading into next season? Is it a healthy Paxton Pomykal and the possibility of a new Designated Player signing that is attracting this sort of attention? Is it the youth movement finally getting their due and winning it all?

What do you all make of FC Dallas’ chances in 2021? Do you think it is worth taking this kind of bet? Or does it seem a little too out there for you?
