New York City FC MLS Betting

The reigning MLS champions have a pretty good chance of becoming the first MLS team to win consecutive league titles in a decade. New York City FC was dominant in the playoffs last year and had one of the best attacks in the league with Taty Castellanos leading the way. Castellanos was named the MLS Golden Boot winner after notching 19 goals and eight assists for NYCFC, and he was an easy MLS Best XI selection. The big question hanging over the club though is whether or not Castellanos will stay for the full season with European and South American sides reportedly in hot pursuit of the talented young forward.

New York City FC 2022 Preview

Castellanos has been superb for NYCFC in 2022 with seven goals and an assist in 10 matches. However, on Wednesday, May 25, it was reported that West Ham was in the process of paying $16 million in order to land the star striker. That would seriously hurt NYCFC’s chances of repeating as this club has been special over its last five matches, outscoring its opponents 16-4.

Thiago Andrade, Talles Magno, and Heber are all solid players, but Castellanos is the straw that turns the drink. They will need to find a new creator and hope for the best with Maxi Moralez likely filling part of that role.

New York City has two teams in nearly every sport. In baseball, there are the Yankees and the Mets, football has the Giants and the Jets, and hockey has the Islanders and the Rangers. Thus, it’s only natural that soccer would follow suit and grant the Big Apple a second franchise to complement the New York Red Bulls. The Hudson River Derby is already one of the fiercest rivalries in the MLS, but the Red Bulls have currently won 12 of 21 games in this series to date.

It didn’t take long for NYCFC to become competitive. The club finished in second place in the Eastern Conference in just its second season, but the team was unable to advance past the quarterfinals of the MLS Playoffs until 2021. NYCFC finally broke through by knocking off Atlanta United in the first round and upsetting the Supporters’ Shield winning New England Revolution in the conference semifinals. They went on to beat the Philadelphia Union in the Eastern Conference Finals and triumphed over Portland by way of penalties in the MLS Cup to win their first major title.
