MLS PICKS

Just as predicted in my “Double Play” pick, on Friday in Portland, Timbers not without drama, but after beautiful strike from Diego Valeri defeated Colorado Rapids 2-1, to give me perfect start into 18th weekend of my MLS Predictions.

After perfect start, we have plenty of promising matches this Saturday. MLS Champs hosting Galaxy, RSL will test Whitecaps at home, struggling Earthquakes visiting Red Bulls, and on Sunday red hot Chivas USA will visit sensational this year, D.C. United.

New York Red Bulls, FC Dallas, Fire are my favorites to win their matches, also expect some goals in Chicago and Salt Lake.

*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 18 record 12-12 (accuracy 50.00 % )

Last Week 17 record 11-9 (accuracy 55.00 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 148-210 (accuracy 41.34 % )

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

  20. Hey Chris,

  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.

    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
