Best San Jose Earthquakes Betting Sites

The San Jose Earthquakes are one of the oldest teams in Major League Soccer and are two-time winners of the MLS Cup. Having joined MLS as the one of the 10 charter members of the league, San Jose were originally known as the San Jose Clash but now play as the Earthquakes at the Avaya Stadium in San Jose, California. Having been part of the North American Soccer League for 20 years before the MLS came along, San Jose might have been expected to hit the ground running in their new surroundings.   [+]

After all, they had one of the best players of all time, former Manchester United legend George Best in their ranks in the 70’s. Despite winning their first ever MLS game in front of a healthy crowd of over 31,000 spectators, thanks to a single Eric Wynalda strike, San Jose failed to win the MLS Cup in 1996.

Their hopes improved when Frank Yallop joined as head coach days before the 2001 MLS SuperDraft. He brought in strong coaches and added players such as Landon Donovan to the team roster. 2001 was a landmark year as San Jose turned their fortunes around, finishing the regular season with 45 points compared to 29 the previous season. They marched into the playoffs in fine form and won the MLS Cup final against favorites L.A. Galaxy 2-1 in overtime. 

The Earthquakes followed their MLS Cup success with two consecutive runners-up finishes for the Supporters’ Shield. San Jose went down four goals to L.A. Galaxy in the first round, but a stunning comeback saw them progress 5-4 on aggregate. The Earthquakes won their second MLS Cup just two season after their first, this time triumphing 4-2 against Chicago Fire in a memorable final. 

Yallop left and The Earthquakes’ success went with him, as they endured a frustrating few years. Yallop returned in 2007 (from L.A. Galaxy) and stars such as Darren Huckerby signed in 2008.

Since then, The Earthquakes have been one of the Western Conference’s most exciting teams to watch, and in 2012, after scoring in stoppage time time and time again, they were nicknamed ‘The Goonies’ for their run of improbable comebacks. Despite this new cult club status, San Jose ended 2014 with the worst record they’ve ever posted. 

They missed the playoffs again in 2015 and 2016. San Jose finished the 2016 in second last place in the Western Conference and must improve on various facets to once again be considered playoff contenders.

How To Win At San Jose Earthquakes Betting

San Jose’s biggest issue in 2016 was their impoverished away record. The Earthquakes won a single encounter away from home, gaining 10 points from a possible 51 in foreign territory. They only had that many points thanks to seven draws. At least they’re tough to beat when playing on the road, but that kind of point return won’t return them to the promise land any time soon.

San Jose are quite good at home so look to capitalize when they play at the Avida Stadium. The Earthquakes had the worst offense in the Western Conference, scoring 32 goals in 34 games. They were the only side in the MLS who were unable to score at least a goal per match.

Solid at the back, San Jose enjoyed a brilliant year defensively. They conceded 40 goals and would have qualified for the playoffs had they found a way to score more often. 

Back the under in most San Jose fixtures and you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank. San Jose is adept at defending and can’t score with a damn. If that current trend continues, back the under for best results.
