Will Real Madrid end its American tour without a win? The Spanish powerhouse is 0-2-1 through three games of its preseason tour before meeting the MLS All-Star squad on Wednesday night in Chicago. At the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Real Madrid is a -200 favorite against Tim Howard, Michael Bradley, Kaka, and the rest of Major League Soccer’s best.
Major League Soccer has a knack for creating worst-to-first (or close to first) stories. In 2015, Colorado was the worst team in the Western Conference. A year later, they finished second in the conference and allowed the fewest goals in the league. This year’s outhouse-to-the-penthouse story is the Chicago Fire. A year after finishing as the worst team in the league, Chicago is one point behind the best record in the league. At the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, Chicago is down to 10/1 to capture the 2017 MLS Cup.
