Well the first leg of the journey to MLS Cup is over as we stop in Las Vegas for the night, the good part of this stop is that I can bring you the latest from Vegas in regards to the match, yes that means the odds and at the MGM there are a couple of interesting wagers you can make. First up is which player will score the first goal, here are the odds:

Robbie Keane 3/1
Landon Donovan 3/1
Chad Barrett 5/1
Jovan Kirovski 7/1
David Beckham 7/1
Mike Magee 7/1
Adam Cristman 8/1
Carlos Costly 8/1
Brian Ching 10/1
Cameron Weaver 10/1
No Goal Scored 7/1
Field Even

more odds after the jump:

So at the MGM they are also offering a first half wager:

Houston Dynamo +250
Los Angeles Galaxy -130
Draw -120

You can also bet on the full match (which in Vegas is the result after the first 90 minutes plus stoppage time):

Houston Dynamo +400
Los Angeles Galaxy -160
Draw +220

So the odds are a bit better at TI (Treasure Island) where Houston was +450.

Clearly if you look at the odds you can tell that the huge favorite to win the match is LA, but sometimes a bet on a long shot like Houston in soccer isn't a bad thing at all and before I leave town in the morning that is where my money is going.

Well time for a nap so we can head to LA early in the morning.
