The Philadelphia Union has been a part of the MLS since 2010 but has never won the MLS Cup. They finished as runners-up in the US Open in 2014 and 2015. The Union made it as far as the conference semi-finals in 2011 but have never really threatened to win the MLS Cup. In 2016, Philadelphia qualified for the playoffs by the skin of their teeth, pipping New England Revolution by a tiebreaker. They didn’t make the most of qualifying for the postseason and were beaten handily in the first round away to Toronto.
Fast-forward to today, and we’re looking at an all-new Union team. The side finished top of the conference in 2022 and made it through the post season to the final, only narrowly missing out on a strong LAFC side on penalties. Last year was a strong one for sport in the city of Philadelphia and they have every chance of repeating that feat in 2023.

How To Make Money On Philadelphia Union
Since joining the MLS in 2010, the Union have been an average, middle-of-the-road sort of team. They are not a good future bet and shouldn't even be considered for such a wager. The best you can currently expect of this team is a berth in the postseason.
With a little luck and a run of good form, Philadelphia could easily make it to the postseason gain in 2023. But, let's see how they perform in the first few fixtures following that tragic end to last season in the MLS Cup final.
It's worth digging further into the head-to-head matchups to gain a better valuaton of where you stand on that accord. Analyse recent form and make sure you don't back this team on the road. They need to substantially improve their away form before backing them on their travels.
