MLS Wednesday Preview, Picks and Predictions

After devastating 0-5 16th week of my prediction, time to recover some losses. 17th week starts with 4 games on Wednesday, including Galaxy vs Timbers which may become match of the week, not only in Western Conference .

Eastern contenders will clash in Montreal, where Impact will host Dynamo, and they will do what they can to get 3 points.

Except Vancouver as always on Wednesday’s, I’m not expecting many goals.

Current week 17 record 00

Last 16th week of 2013 MLS season finished 05 record.

2013 MLS season record 7071 (accuracy 49.64 % ).

Picks and predictions are usually published here at least 1-2 hours before the game time.

Wednesday, June 19

Montreal Impact vs. Houston Dynamo, 8 p.m. (TSN, RDS)

The teams evenly split their three meetings in Montréal’s inaugural MLS season, each winning once at home. The third match, at BBVA Compass Stadium, was a draw.

The Impact saw their three-game winning streak come to an end over the weekend in a 2-0 loss at Columbus, but they still maintain their leadership atop the Eastern Conference.

The Dynamo return to league play off a second consecutive draw, a 1-1 result June 1 at Columbus, which extended their winless streak to four games in league play, their longest this season.

Midweek game for Impact, just 4 days after they been on the ground in Columbus vs Crew, can affect their game a bit. However, the Impact team is deep enough, and has players with tons of experience to rebound quickly. Dynamo had weekend off and they should be fresh and ready, to face Eastern Conference leaders. Houston team has appetite and potential to lead the East.

Chicago Fire vs. Colorado Rapids, 8:30 p.m.

Mike Magee scored his second goal in as many league games for the Fire in their last outing, a come-from-behind 2-2 draw with Portland on June 8.

Magee has scored a goal in each of his four appearances in all competitions for the Fire, also netting in each of the Fire’s victories in the U.S. Open Cup.

The Rapids saw their six-game undefeated streak – matching their longest over each of the last three seasons – come to an end in a 2-1 loss to San Jose at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park last weekend.

The Rapids have never won at Toyota Park. Colorado’s last road win against Chicago came in 2004, at Soldier Field. Since, the Fire are 5-0-2 in home games in the series, including a 2-0 win in the last meeting in Bridgeview in 2011.

Can Rapids finally beat Fire in Chicago? Don’t know, but I think they good enough not to loose there.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC vs. Chivas USA, 10 p.m. (TSN, RDS2)

The teams are meeting for the second time this season. An own goal and a goal from Eric Avila led Chivas USA to a 2-1 victory March 30 in Carson.

It was the first-ever win for Chivas against Vancouver, in six meetings all-time. The opening goal in the March 30 encounter snapped a 316-minute scoring drought for Chivas USA vs. Whitecaps FC.

Chivas USA have not won in league play since the first meeting with Whitecaps FC, now eight league games without a victory. Chivas are riding a five-game losing streak, the longest since a club-record seven-game losing run at the end of last season.

Camilo Sanvezzo scored his fourth goal in the last four games to start the Whitecaps FC comeback from two goals down in their 4-3 win against New England on Saturday at BC Place.

Kenny Miller scored a pair of goals in a game for the first time since coming to MLS in Vancouver’s come-from-behind 4-3 win against New England on Saturday evening at BC Place.

This should be very good Wednesday, perhaps another high scoring day for the WhiteCaps.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: 1 WhiteCaps WIN (likely by more than 1 goal)

LA Galaxy vs. Portland Timbers, 10:30 p.m.

The Timbers extended their undefeated streak to 13 games – equaling the 10th longest in MLS history – with their 1-0 home win against FC Dallas on Saturday afternoon.

Darlington Nagbe scored his fifth goal of the season in Portland’s win vs. Dallas – a goal he called “probably No.1” of his three-year MLS career. Nagbe won the MLS Goal of the Year in his rookie season of 2011.

The Galaxy are coming off back-to-back losses for the second time this season, their last match a 3-1 loss at Real Salt Lake on June 8 at Rio Tinto Stadium.

The Galaxy won all three meetings between the clubs a year ago. Portland’s lone victory in five all-time meetings came in 2011 at Jeld-Wen Field; the Galaxy are 3-0-0 all-time in the series in Carson.

Clearly Wednesday’s game of the day, and if Timbers keep their composure from last Saturday, they should be able to come back to Portland with at least a point.
