Pro Soccer Power Ratings

 

Last updated: Monday, August 8, 2022 - thru games of August 7 Welcome to my MLS power ratings! I will be updating this page on Mondays during the season. To determine the approximate point spread for a game, simply take the difference between the power ratings of the two teams in question and add 0.5 goal for the home team. These ratings are based on a mathematical formula involving several factors, including won-lost record, schedule strength, and margin of victory in games. More recent games are taken with slightly more consideration than games played earlier in the season. Enjoy!
