For this Saturday I am picking Dynamo, Sounders FC to win, also Real Salt Lake and Crew should get some points on the road. Here is why…. 

 

Toronto FC – New England Revolution – 1 p.m. (MLS Direct Kick)

Before returning home, Toronto FC complete their three-game road trip with a contest at Vancouver on Wednesday in the Nutrilite Canadian Championship. Traveling across the continent may affect their game a bit, but Revolution even with Shalrie Joseph, is not that strong to capitalize on it.

CHRIS PICK: 1 Toronto FC at rate 1.90

 

Seattle Sounders FC – San Jose Earthquakes – 3 p.m. (FSC/FSE – tape delay, 6 p.m.)

The Earthquakes have lost just once in their last six games, recording their third consecutive shutout in the weekend draw in New England. I am Earthquakes fan and following the team I really believe that they can really get result there. Awful scheduling of this game will take some audience away from Qwest Field, but Sounders should be able to take home advantage.

CHRIS PICK: 1 Sounders FC at rate 1.80

 

Houston Dynamo – D.C. United – 8 p.m. (Galavision)

In six all-time meetings as head coaches, United Curt Onalfo has never been able to defeat former teammate Dominic Kinnear – from 2007-09, Kinnear’s Dynamo won four encounters (with two draws). The pair spent the 1997 season together with the San Jose Clash. Even if Dynamo has to play with 9 man against 11, United has no chance to win or tie this game.

CHRIS PICK: 1 Dynamo at rate 1.61

 

Chivas USA – Real Salt Lake – 10:30 p.m. (MLS Direct Kick)

Real Salt Lake are back on the road after winning three home games in a row. RSL has lost its past three road games. Chivas USA plays at home, but World Cup absence will hurt The Goats more. I will support RSL win with the tie

CHRIS PICK: X2 Real Salt Lake with draw at rate 2.00

 

Kansas City Wizards – Columbus Crew SUNDAY 4 p.m. (MLS Direct Kick)

The Crew have a seven-game unbeaten streak against the Wizards in league and cup play. Kansas City’s last victory against Columbus came Sept. 15, 2007. The Crew have never lost at CommunityAmerica Ballpark. Trend will not change this Sunday, last Thursday Crew easy won at Red Bull Arena and is my favorite in Kansas City

CHRIS PICK: X2 Crew with draw at rate 1.975

 

CHRIS PICKS: last Thursday 0 -2

CHRIS PICKS: this season 37 29 = accuracy  56.00 %
