MLS Week 13 Preview, Picks and Predictions

Western Conference leaders Seattle Sounders vs undefeated this season Real Salt Lake is clearly match of the weekend. The Revolutions will try to extend their winning streak in Montreal. It’s hard to pick the winner in Toronto and Washington D.C. matches, but don’t expect many goals there, with high probability of draws on both occasions. The Earthquakes visiting FC Dallas, and we should see some offensive fireworks on both sides.

The Sounders, Earthquakes and Chivas USA are my picks for Saturday, my Sunday’s selections will be posted later.

I missed one goal in each of the Tuesday and Wednesday games. It was close in both matches, but that’s the reason why we starting weekend from behind 1-3 in midweek games.

Keep in mind I’m not even 42 % in my accuracy this season, but I have been their before. I’m not blaming my self for my predictions, but the players, and sometimes referees, most of the time is their fault.:)

However, despite poor start of the campaign, I’m confident trough the season, I should be able to get back to over 50%, but obvious goal is to cross 54% as earlier as possible.

Current Week 13 record 816 (accuracy 33.33 % )

Last Week 12 record 1110 (accuracy 52.38 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 97143 (accuracy 40.42 % )

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

Sunday, June 1

Chicago Fire vs. LA Galaxy 1-1

Landon Donovan became the all-time leading goalscorer in MLS history with 135th and 136th league goals in the Galaxy’s 4-1 win against Philadelphia on Sunday evening. It was also his MLS record 31st career multiple-goal game.
Robbie Keane scored a goal and added two assists in the win against Union. Over his last 33 games, since the start of the 2013 season (one shy of a full MLS campaign), Keane has scored 23 goals and added 14 assists.
The Galaxy have a four-game winning streak in the series, including a 4-0 victory last March 3 at StubHub Center in the only meeting between the teams. The Fire have not defeated the Galaxy since a 3-2 win in Carson on Aug. 1, 2010.
The Galaxy have come away with points on each of their last four visits to Toyota Park (three victories and a draw). Chicago’s last home win in the series came in 2008.

CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Galaxy to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals

Colorado Rapids vs. Houston Dynamo 3-0

Homegrown Player Shane O’Neill scored his first professional goal in the Rapids’ 4-1 win against Montréal on Saturday evening at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, while reigning MLS Rookie of the Year Dillon Powers scored two goals, his first two of the season and his first career two-goal game.
The trip to Commerce City is the third game of a road swing for the Dynamo, which started with shutout defeats at D.C. United (0-2) and San Jose (0-3).
The Rapids have a seven-game undefeated streak alive against the Dynamo. Houston’s last victory in the series came in a 1-0 win, April 19, 2009; the teams reached a 1-1 draw last April 28 in Houston in their only meeting.
Colorado’s only win ever in Houston came in a 2-1 win May 4, 2011 at Robertson Stadium. The Dynamo have not won at Colorado in their last four visits, since a 3-1 victory Oct. 4, 2008.

CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Rapids to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: UNDER 2.5 goals

Portland Timbers vs. Vancouver Whitecaps 3-4

The Timbers have never lost to Whitecaps FC since the two teams have played in MLS competition. The Timbers have won four of the eight meetings all-time, including two of the four contests at BC Place.
The teams played to three draws in three meetings a season ago, reaching a pair of 2-2 results at BC Place and ending with a 1-1 tie in Portland.
The Timbers have played to seven draws in their first 12 games this season. A year ago they played in 15 ties to lead MLS, one shy of the league’s single-season record (set in 2011 by New York and Chicago).
A week after scoring his first professional goal, Erik Hurtado made it two in two games in Whitecaps FC’s 2-2 draw with Seattle Sounders FC at BC Place.

CHRIS’S PREDICTION: DRAW
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: UNDER 2.5 goals

Saturday, May 31

FC Dallas vs. San Jose Earthquakes 1-2

Khari Stephenson scored two goals in a game for the first time in his MLS career, hitting for the brace in the 3-0 win against the Houston Dynamo on Sunday evening.
FC Dallas return home after a two-game road swing where their current winless streak was extended to seven games, losing 2-1 at the LA Galaxy and reaching a scoreless draw at Real Salt Lake last week. The FCD club record is 13 consecutive games without a win, set in 2012.
The teams are meeting for the second time this season. A first-half goal from Cordell Cato and a second-half own goal propelled the Earthquakes to a 2-1 win, May 10 at Buck Shaw Stadium.
FC Dallas hasn’t won in Santa Clara since 2009. The Quakes have won four of the six home meetings since, with two draws.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Earthquakes to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals

Chivas USA vs. Philadelphia Union 0-3

Union have never lost to Chivas USA in six meetings all-time. Philadelphia has won all three matchups at PPL Park, including a 3-1 victory last July 12 in the only 2013 meeting between the teams.
Union won 1-0 on April 21, 2012 in Carson, their first win at Chivas USA in three tries; the teams had played to draws in the first Chivas home games vs. Philadelphia.
In his first match back after his release from the U.S. national team, Maurice Edu netted the Union goal in their 4-1 loss to the LA Galaxy – a match where fellow national team cut Landon Donovan scored twice to become the league’s all-time goalscoring king.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Chivas USA to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals

Montreal Impact vs. New England Revolution 0-2

Revolution striker Patrick Mullins became just the second rookie to score goals in four consecutive games when he netted the opener in the 2-1 win vs. D.C. United on Saturday at Gillette Stadium. The first: Damani Ralph, who scored in four consecutive games in 2003, on his way to single-season rookie record 11 goals with the Chicago Fire.
The Revolution extended their winning streak to five games with the victory against United, one shy of the club record set April 9-May 14, 2005. The current winning streak is the club’s longest since that record run.
The Impact will start the final defense of their Canadian Championship title on Wednesday, when they take on Toronto FC in the first leg of their aggregate series at BMO Field in Toronto. TFC had won the Canadian Championship for four consecutive years before the Impact claimed the title last season.
The Revolution have won on each of their last two trips to Stade Saputo – their only two victories in the all-time series; both victories have come by 1-0 scorelines.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Revolution to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals

Toronto FC vs. Columbus Crew 3-2

The teams are meeting for the second time this season. Michael Bradley and Issey Nakajima-Farran scored goals to lead Toronto FC to a 2-0 victory on April 5 at Crew Stadium.
The Crew have lost to Toronto FC just three times in 19 meetings all-time. TFC’s 2-1 win last July 27 at BMO Field was their first win ever against the Crew on their home ground, after three losses and five draws.
The Crew put an end to their eight-game winless streak – the club’s longest since its record 13-game run without a victory in 2006 – with a 2-0 win against the Chicago Fire on Saturday at Crew Stadium.
Luke Moore scored his second goal in as many games since coming to Toronto FC, as they came back for an improbable 2-2 draw at Sporting KC on Friday evening.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Draw
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: UNDER 2.5 goals

D.C. United vs. Sporting Kansas City 1-0

Sporting KC have a seven-game undefeated streak alive vs. D.C. United, including two wins in three meetings a year ago, with one draw. The last D.C. victory in the series came May 5, 2010 at RFK Stadium.
United have not won in Kansas City since 2007. In the nine visits since, Sporting have won six games with three ties; that includes two wins and two draws in four meetings all-time at CommunityAmerica Ballpark, and victories in all four meetings at Sporting Park.
Fabian Espíndola scored the United goal in their 2-1 loss to New England over the weekend, and now has a goal or an assist in eight of his last 10 games, with six goals and five assists for the season.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: DRAW
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: UNDER 2.5 goals

Seattle Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake 4-0

Real Salt Lake have equaled the record for the longest undefeated start to a season in MLS history, now 12 games without loss (6-0-6). The Los Angeles Galaxy opened their inaugural season – and the first MLS season – with a 12-0 record (2 by shootout); the Galaxy also started the 2010 season with 12 games without defeat (10-0-2).
Sounders FC return home to CenturyLink Field where they have won four consecutive matches, two games shy of the club record, and also hold the best record in MLS.
The teams met three times a season ago, each winning on their home ground – Real won twice at Rio Tinto Stadium, and Sounders FC once at CenturyLink Field.
The teams also met in the MLS Cup Playoffs in both 2011 and 2012, Real advancing 3-2 on aggregate in 2011, and Sounders FC winning the series 1-0 in 2012.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Sounders to WIN

Tuesday, May 27

Sporting Kansas City vs New York Red Bulls 1-1

I was too busy with USMNT to do detailed review of this match, but I like SKC to win, but I think Red Bulls should be able to score as well, so 2-1 home side win is my call.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Sporting to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals
