Chicago Fire MLS Betting History Options and Odds
Like a raging inferno, the Chicago Fire blazed a very impressive path through Major League Soccer during their first season back in 1998. After winning their inaugural fixture, the Fire were doused during their next five contests fizzling to a 1-5 record. Regrouping, the Windy City Crew won eleven in a row and finished with a 20-12 overall record. The best was yet to come as bookmakers posted fantastic Chicago Fire underdog odds, which were ssur le feu, during the MLS postseason action.
Finishing second in the Western Conference, and third overall in the MLS, Chicago rolled through the playoffs as they recorded wins over the Colorado Rapids (2-1) and Los Angeles Galaxy (2-1 SO) prior to blanking D.C United 2-0 to claim the MLS Cup. Apart from the D.C. United title during the inaugural MLS season, the Houston Dynamo and Chicago Fire were the only squads to capture the MLS Championship in their first year through the first twenty MLS Championship matches.
