San Jose Earthquakes MLS Betting

The worst franchise in the MLS over the last decade has been the San Jose Earthquakes. San Jose has not finished higher than sixth place in the Western Conference standings since 2012, and the Quakes haven’t made it further than the Round of 16 in the US Open Cup either. That’s pretty disappointing considering the fans pushed for a team to return to this area, but they have been consistently underwhelming. It looks like we will see much of the same during the 2023 campaign too.

San Jose Earthquakes 2023 Preview

Although San Jose is unlikely to make the playoffs, things are looking up a little bit in the Bay Area. The Earthquakes improved their roster this offseason with some big splash signings, including that of Carlos Gruezo. The 28-year-old Ecuador international had been a major part of FC Augsburg’s attack the last few seasons, and San Jose shelled out a club-record transfer fee to acquire him.

The Quakes also made efforts to improve their defense with the signing of goalkeeper Daniel and defender Jonathan Mensah. San Jose moved quick to bring in Mensah after projected starter Nathan tore his ACL in preseason, and he should immediately be plugged into the back line.

Over the last two decades, there have been a lot of ups and downs with soccer in San Jose. The San Jose Earthquakes were one of the original franchises of Major League Soccer, starting off as the San Jose Clash back in 1996. It took them six years until they made their first postseason appearance, but when they did it was a doozy.

The San Jose Earthquakes won the whole enchilada in their first trip to the postseason. They knocked off the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 to win the 2001 MLS Cup, avenging their loss to their rivals in an epic penalty kick confrontation in the U.S. Open Cup earlier in the year. San Jose went on to win the 2003 MLS Cup as well, and the Earthquakes finished with one of the top two records in the Western Conference four times between 2001 and 2005.

Unfortunately, despite their success, the San Jose Earthquakes moved to Houston and eventually became the Houston Dynamo at the end of the 2005 season. The owners noted the lack of a soccer-specific stadium, but the attendance had been dreadful too. Following their inaugural season, San Jose had failed to average more than 15,000 fans a game up until they moved even though they were continually one of the best teams in the MLS.

After a two-year hiatus, soccer returned to San Jose. However, the attendance woes continued until the Earthquakes moved into Avaya Stadium in 2015. With a soccer-specific stadium finally built, soccer is here to stay in San Jose. Sadly, the product on the pitch has not been strong, as the Earthquakes haven’t finished better than 6th in the conference since 2012.
