The regular season for the Major League Soccer 2019 has ended, but the post-season playoff games have begun.
The playoff offs began with 12 teams but now we are down to the final eight featuring teams like New York FC, Toronto FC, Atlanta United FC, Philadelphia Union, Los Angeles FC, LA Galaxy, Seattle Founders FC, and Real Salt Lake.
While we are waiting for the conference semifinals to be played, this is what you need to know to make money from the playoffs:
Know your betting markets
This is one of the first things you need to know if you want to bet on this league’s games and win.
The markets for this league are the same as any other football betting market. Here are some of them to try out:
A. Predict the winner
You can predict the winner for each game or go ahead to predict the overall winner of the league.
B. Predict the number of goals scored (under/over)
You can predict that the goals scored in the game will be under or over 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, etc.
C. Predict that the game will end in a draw (1×2)
This is the 1×2 betting match market where 1 means home, 2 means away and x means the possibility of a draw.
D. Predict 1st half or 2nd half results
This is where you predict the results of either the first half or second half. You can also predict if both teams will score in each half.
These are just a few of the betting markets you need to explore. For the full list of markets you can try out, visits nairabet.com.

Know your teams
This is also very important.
You do not want to go betting blindly on a team you do not know well. You need to do your research.
Know the teams that have done exceptionally well. For example, Los Angeles FC finished the regular season with the highest number of points, 72. New York finished top of the Eastern conference table with 64 points.
While doing your research, watch out for head to head performances and which team has done better.
Are there injuries that might affect players’ performance in a team? Which team has performed better at home and away?
These are all the things to check out to make sure that you place your bet on the right team.
Know your matchups
It is impossible to place a bet if you do not know the teams that will be playing. Check the matchups and pick games you are quite sure of.
New York Fc will be playing against Toronto FC on Thursday. New York City finished with 64 points and Toronto FC finished with 50. While New York was first, Toronto was fourth.
But, both teams have come this far, which means both teams are good.
With the right knowledge of these three things, you should be able to make the right predictions and win some extra cash.
