MLS Sunday Preview, Picks and Predictions

The last Sunday of 2014 MLS regular season provides entertaining matches, including crucial for Eastern Conference final standings clash in Kansas City, where defending MLS Cup Champions facing New York Red Bulls. In Columbus, the Crew are my favorites, simply because win over Union is very important to their playoffs schedule.

Crew and Red Bulls are my favorites to win their matches, more than 2 goals expected in both matches.

Current Week 32 record 44 (accuracy 50.00 % )

Last Week 31 record 57 (accuracy 41.67 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 300331 (accuracy 47.54 % )

*Keep in mind I’m only around 47 % 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.

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

COLUMBUS CREW vs. PHILADELPHIA UNION, 4 PM
Ethan Finlay scored for a fourth consecutive match and Aaron Schoenfeld scored a pair of goals in a game for the first time in his MLS career as the Crew won a second consecutive game with a 3-1 defeat of the New York Red Bulls on Sunday. The Crew have seven wins in their last 10 games.

SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs. NEW YORK RED BULLS, 8:30 PM

Bradley Wright-Phillips has one final chance to reach the MLS single-season goalscoring mark.

Saturday, October 25

SEATTLE SOUNDERS vs. LA GALAXY 2-0

CHRIS’S PREDICTION:SOUNDERS to WINUNDER 2.5 Goals

NE REVOLUTION vs. TORONTO FC 1-0
Lee Nguyen scored a pair of goals, including his league-leading eighth game-winning goal of the season, to bring the Revolution back for a 2-1 win at the Houston Dynamo on Thursday evening. Nguyen has scored four goals in the last three matches; the Revs are undefeated in their last four games and have lost once in 11 games since mid-August.
Toronto FC ended their three-game losing slide but still saw their playoff hopes dashed for the eighth time in the club’s eight-year history, following their 1-1 draw with the Montréal Impact on Saturday at BMO Field.

The teams are meeting for the third time this season, and the Revolution have won both. Lee Nguyen, Kelyn Rowe and Teal Bunbury scored as the Revolution took a 3-0 win Aug. 30 at BMO Field; Nguyen’s penalty kick in the 84th minute snapped a late deadlock and gave the Revs a 2-1 win May 3 in Toronto.
New England’s 2-0 win at Gillette Stadium last year was their first against Toronto FC since 2010. The wins at BMO Field this season were the first ever there for the Revolution, after two losses and five draws in their first seven all-time visits, though they’ve taken points on five straight trips to Toronto.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:REVOLUTION to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

FC DALLAS vs. PORTLAND TIMBERS 0-2
Blas Perez scored his 11th goal – his second consecutive season with 11 goals – as FC Dallas moved back into third place in the Western Conference with their 1-0 win against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday. FCD can clinch the third spot with just a tie and the failure of Real Salt Lake to win in their match against Chivas USA.
The Timbers recorded a second consecutive shutout and extended their undefeated streak – but still find their backs against the wall following a home scoreless draw with Real Salt Lake on Friday. The Timbers enter the final weekend a point behind Vancouver for fifth place and the final playoff spot in the Western Conference; they must win and hope Whitecaps FC does not to reach the postseason for a second consecutive year.
The teams are meeting for the third time this season. Pa Modou Kah’s goal deep in second-half stoppage time completed a two-goal comeback for the Timbers to leave the teams in a 2-2 draw June 11 at Providence Park. A late Blas Perez goal gave FC Dallas a 2-1 victory, March 29 at Toyota Stadium.

The road team has never won in the series, in 10 meetings all-time. FC Dallas have won three of the five meetings all-time in Frisco.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:FC DALLAS to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

VANCOUVER WHITECAPS vs. COLORADO RAPIDS 1-0
Whitecaps FC extended their shutout streak to 303 minutes – the third-longest in the club’s MLS history – following their scoreless draw at San Jose on Saturday evening. Whitecaps FC extended their undefeated streak to four games – they can claim the final playoff berth with a win, or the failure of the Portland Timbers to defeat FC Dallas.
The Rapids saw their club-record winless streak reach 13 games – matching the seventh-longest in MLS history – following their 1-0 home loss against FC Dallas on Saturday. The Rapids have gone 0-11-2 since their last win on July 25.
The teams are meeting for the third time this season, and the Rapids have won both. Dillon Powers and Vicente Sánchez each scored in the first half in a 2-0 Colorado win, June 28 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park; José Mari scored a pair of goals two minutes late in the second half to haul the Rapids back for a 2-1 win April 5 at BC Place.

The win in the first meeting was the second victory ever for the Rapids at BC Place. Whitecaps FC won in 2012 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for their lone triumph on the Rapids’ home ground.
