Ratings Methodology

Below are listed the current MLS Soccer computer ratings as computed by the Donchess Inference Index. The MLS ratings will be updated every week during the season. More information on how these MLS soccer computer ratings are computed can be found on the Methodology page.

  • DII Rating: This is a MLS soccer rankings system that is a combination of the Standard Rating and the Aegis Rating. The Aegis Rating is weighted more highly in the beginning of the season whereas the Standard Rating is weighted more highly at the end of the season. This is the final rating that is used to rank the teams.
  • Standard Rating: Looks at game outcome and score differential only. Record is the most important factor in this rating system.
  • Inference Rating: Heavily weights the outcomes of opponents’ games. This is system is a much better predictor of future game outcomes.
  • Vegas Rating: A rating system based on what the Vegas line is on each game. This rating system is a strong predictor of future games, but does not heavily weight the outcomes of previous games. This rating is used for predictions, but not used for the overall rating.
