MLS Wednesday Preview, Picks and Predictions

MLS Wednesday starting 20th week of the season, and offers plenty of interesting match-ups. Eastern Conference contenders United and Toronto FC clashing in Washington D.C., Chicago Fire hosting the Whitecaps, and in the match of the day Real Salt Lake facing Red Bulls in Utah.

Colorado Rapids and RSL are my favorites to win their matches, and I’m also expecting some goals in Chicago.

*Keep in mind I’m only around 41 % in my accuracy this season, but I have been there 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 19 record 00 (accuracy 50.00 % )

Last Week 19 record 87 (accuracy 53.33 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 156219 (accuracy 41.60 % )

Wednesday, July 30

D.C. UNITED vs. TORONTO FC, 7 p.m.

The teams are meeting for the third time this season, each winning once previously. Nick DeLeon and Perry Kitchen scored second-half goals to lead United to a 2-1 win at BMO Field; on March 22, TFC’s Jermain Defoe scored the game’s only goal on the hour mark also at BMO Field.
TFC gained a win and a draw on their two trips to RFK Stadium last year, the victory just the club’s second all-time vs. United (first since 2010). TFC had a two-game home winning streak in the series ended in the last meeting.
D.C. United won their third game in a row in their last league match, a 3-0 home win vs. Chivas USA on July 20. United last won three games in a row in September 2012.

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

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION vs. COLORADO RAPIDS, 7:30 p.m.

The Revolution lost their eighth game in a row in the 2-1 home loss to the Columbus Crew on Saturday evening. The Revolution club record is nine losses in a row, set in both 1997 and ’98; it’s the longest losing slide in MLS since Toronto FC lost nine games in a row at the start of the 2012 season.
Panamanian international Gabriel Torres scored his first goal of the season to cap the Rapids’ 3-0 home win vs. Chivas USA on Friday evening. His last goal in MLS league play came last Oct. 19, when he scored twice vs. Vancouver.
The Revolution defeated the Rapids in 2012 in the last meeting in Foxborough, their first win in the all-time series since the 2007 season.
The Revolution haven’t won in Colorado in a decade, since a 2-1 win June 15, 2002.

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

CHICAGO FIRE vs. VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC, 8:30 p.m. (TSN)

The Fire conceded a season-high five goals in their last league match, a 5-1 defeat by the San Jose Earthquakes on July 23. The Fire last allowed five goals in a game in a 5-2 loss at New York in the final game of the 2013 season; the club record was set in a 6-2 loss to Columbus in 2003.
Whitecaps FC reached their third consecutive draw, returning home for a 2-2 tie with FC Dallas on Sunday evening at BC Place. Whitecaps FC now have 10 draws in 20 matches this season, second-most in MLS (the Fire have 11 in 19 league games).
Darren Mattocks scored a goal for a third consecutive match in the draw with FC Dallas, the longest goalscoring streak of his three-season MLS career.
Each team is undefeated at home in the all-time series between the clubs. The Fire have won once, with one draw, at Toyota Park – a 1-0 win in 2012 in the last Bridgeview encounter. Whitecaps FC have won both meetings all-time in Vancouver, including a 3-1 win last July 14 at BC Place in the only meeting of the season.

CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Chicago Fire to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals

REAL SALT LAKE vs. NEW YORK RED BULLS, 9 p.m. (ESPN2)

Bradley Wright-Phillips scored for a fifth consecutive game in New York’s last league game, a 1-1 draw with San Jose on July 19. Wright-Phillips leads the MLS Golden Boot standings with 17 goals; he has eight goals in his last eight games, and has 16 of his goals over the last 13 games (since April 23).
Olmes García scored a pair of goals in a game for the second time in his MLS career – his first goals in more than a year – to lead Real to a 3-1 win against Montréal on Thursday evening. García had last scored in league play last July 13.
The Red Bulls claimed a 4-3 victory in the only meeting between the teams a year ago, July 27 at Red Bull Arena. The victory snapped a six-game Real Salt Lake undefeated streak alive in the series, including three consecutive wins. The last Red Bulls victory had come April 18, 2009, at the old Giants Stadium.
RSL has never lost to New York at home in regular season play. Real have won the last four meetings at Rio Tinto Stadium; they have four wins in eight meetings all-time, with four draws. But the Red Bulls did win the Eastern Conference Championship in Sandy in 2008.

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