MLS PICKS

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, 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 4-4 (accuracy 50.00 % )

Last Week 31 record 5-7 (accuracy 41.67 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 300-331 (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.

Sunday, October 26

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.
Union snapped a five-game winless streak with their 2-1 win against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday afternoon at PPL Park. Cristian Maidana set up both goals and now has 11 for the season, one shy of the single-season club record and tied for seventh-most in MLS this season.

The teams are meeting for the third time this season, the second meeting over the final three weeks of the campaign. The Crew hit for a record three goals in four minutes to storm back for a 3-2 victory Oct. 11 at PPL Park; Bernardo Anor scored a pair of first-half goals to lead the Crew to a 2-1 victory March 22 at Crew Stadium.
The Crew have never lost at home to Union, with four victories and a draw in five meetings all-time in Columbus. The Crew have won three times on their six trips to Chester.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:CREW to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

CHIVAS USA vs. SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES, 4:30 PM
The Earthquakes saw their winless streak extended to a club-record 14 games – matching the fifth-longest in MLS history – in their scoreless draw with the Portland Timbers. The Quakes last won on Aug. 2.
Felix Borja scored his first two MLS goals in Chivas USA’s back-to-back wins vs. Real Salt Lake and Colorado on Oct. 5 and 11.
The teams are meeting for the third time this season. Erick Torres scored the game’s only goal in the 57th minute to give Chivas USA the victory July 2 at Buck Shaw Stadium; Yannick Djaló scored the game’s only goal in the 66th minute to lead the Quakes to a victory April 26 in Santa Clara.

The victory in the last meeting was the first for Chivas USA in the series since July 6, 2011. San Jose had a seven-game undefeated streak (5-0-2) in the all-time series before the result.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:EARTHQUAKES to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs. NEW YORK RED BULLS, 8:30 PM
Dom Dwyer scored for a second consecutive match, his sixth goal in the last eight games, though Sporting KC lost 2-1 to Philadelphia Union on Saturday at PPL Park.
Bradley Wright-Phillips has one final chance to reach the MLS single-season goalscoring mark. Wright-Phillips sits on 25 goals this season – two shy of the all-time mark – following the Red Bulls’ 3-1 loss to the Columbus Crew on Sunday afternoon at Red Bull Arena which snapped the club-record seven-game home winning streak.
The teams are meeting for the third time this season. Bradley Wright-Phillips and Thierry Henry scored to send the Red Bulls on their way to a 2-1 win, Sept. 6 at Red Bulls. Antonio Dovale scored early in the first half to put SKC ahead, but Wright-Phillips equalized early in the second half to leave the teams in a 1-1 draw, May 27 at Sporting Park.

The Red Bulls have come away with points on their last three visits to Sporting Park. Sporting had come away with points on their last three visits to Red Bull Arena before the New York win in the last meeting.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION:RED BULLS to WINOVER 2.5 Goals

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.

  20. Hey Chris,
    please post your picks as early as you can. I want to see what you think on the games. There are plenty of games scheduled for tomorrow. Maybe you can give your four favorite picks; -.5/+.5 – ML – OVER – UNDER?

  21. Hey Thomas and Chris,
    What are your thoughts on Toronto now? It was inevitable that a pro football team was going to get their 1st W, if not vs the 2nd worst team in the league…then vs who?

  22. I.G. You have been on the money with TFC today, I am still not sold on them.

  23. Hey Chris, top of the morning to ya! Im thinking NE and the Over…what are your thoughts?

  29. Hey Chris,

    Big weekend here, what are your thoughts? missed your Wed. plays, congrats on the sweep! Lets bring out the brooms once again!

    I am thinking:
    KC vs Colu Draw
    KC vs Colu OVER 2.5
    LA +140
    PHI -115
    NE vs Tor OVER 2.5
    SJ vs RSL Draw

    Looking forward to your post.

  30. that was a tough week we went through, lets pick up and climb collectively to .500+ over last week and this upcoming week…Personally, I am starting with the under in the RSL Concaf Game…thoughts? Step 2 will be the Red Bulls road win which is an MLS Friday night special. After that my friend, I am counting on YOU!!!

  31. just a question, if you call a win or a draw, how is that a winner? You are calling for two plays and are awarding yourself for the win either way?

  32. Hi Chris,

    This is the first time I followed your tip and bet on Earthquakes to win. They are 0-2 down?

  33. Hope you had a good year Chris! Its that time of year again and am hoping you are going to post your plays this year…what are your thoughts?

  34. Are you posting this season?

  35. Crew has good chance against Vancouver….

  36. Agreed with Crew chances against Vancouver, but Whitecaps looked OK vs TFC and they playing at home.

  37. What are you three best plays for Sat?

  38. I would be careful this weekend, but I like Seattle and over 2.5 in SJ and Galaxy to win
