MLS Week 23 Preview, Picks and Predictions

Saturday’s clash of top Eastern Conference teams in Kansas City, Galaxy hosting Whitecaps, and mighty Sounders travel to Portland to face Timbers – all are candidates for game of the weekend. We have also Philadelphia Union testing another experimental San Jose Earthquakes lineup.

The Red Bulls, Toronto FC, Crew and Sporting are my favorites to win this weekend.

*Keep in mind I’m only around 44 % 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 23 record 157 (accuracy 68.19 % )

Last Week 22 record 139 (accuracy 59.09 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 204258 (accuracy 44.16 % )

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

PORTLAND TIMBERS vs SEATTLE SOUNDERS 2-4

This Cascadia Cup match will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2, if Sounders can afford to drop some points, Timbers are under pressure to make the playoffs.

We should have very good game, with some goals, and I believe Timbers will score more.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:TIMBERS to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

PHILADELPHIA UNION vs SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES 4-2

The Union team is well rested, and going to be ready for visitors from Silicon Valley. The Earthquakes traveled to Seattle, on Wednesday they draw 1-1 with Sounders, and then took flight to East Coast.

Philadelphia Union in order to keep their playoffs hopes alive, they have to win this match, and they probably will. Quakes struggling offensively, but they should be able to score at least once.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:UNION to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

LA GALAXY vs VANCOUVER WHITECAPS 2-0

LA Galaxy had impressive midweek comeback in Colorado, where from loosing 1-3 to Rapids, they scored 3 goals in second half to escape victorious 4-3.

The Galaxy, are obvious favorites, but remember that Whitecaps on the road have lost only 2 games this season. The Whitecaps finished 12 games this year with a draw, which 8 of them came on the road. I’ll not go with Galaxy in this one. Draw, or perhaps even Whitecaps win would be my call.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:DRAWUNDER 2.5 Goals

NY RED BULLS vs MONTREAL IMPACT 4-2

Teams in the Eastern Conference catching up and collecting points. Currently the Red Bulls are in uncertain position in terms of making playoffs, and for New York team this is absolutely must win situation.

Montreal Impact has been playing better in their recent few games, but they had midweek CONCACAF Champions League game, they beat 3-2 CD FAS, but had to deal with travel to El Salvador. I’m confident about Red Bulls win, but little worry about number of goals.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:RED BULLS to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

TORONTO FC vs CHICAGO FIRE 2-2

Toronto FC have lost some big games lately, and looking forward for strong rebound vs offensively struggling Chicago Fire team.

Chicago Fire defense improved big time lately, but not to the point to get result in Toronto.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:TORONTO to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION vs CHIVAS USA 1-0

Despite loosing 12 games this season, the Revs all the sudden are still in the mix for the playoffs spot.

This is not going to be high scoring match, but I believe host team should be able to produce game-winner.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:REVOLUTION to WINUNDER 2.5 Goals

COLUMBUS CREW vs HOUSTON DYNAMO 3-0

The Crew having good time lately, but in order to keep their playoffs dream alive, they need to defeat teams like Dynamo.

Yellow submarine should be able to score one more then visitors from Texas.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:CREW to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs D.C. UNITED 0-3

Two top Eastern Conference teams facing each other, and both have appetite to stay on the top of the table.

This could be one of the best game this weekend, I’m picking Sporting to win, and we should see a few goals there.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:SPORTING to WINOVER 2.5 Goals
