MLS PICKS

The Red Bulls beat Union 2-1 in the first midweek match of the season, but there still plenty of soccer to play over the Easter Weekend. The match of the weekend will take place at Rio Tinto in Salt Lake, where RSL host Timbers, but we should also have some fun in LA, where Chivas USA will try to stop Clint Dempsey and hot Sounders.

The Crew, FC Dallas and Sporting are my favorites to win their matches, we should also see some goals in Salt Lake, and in Chivas USA vs Sounders game.

I’m not even 36 % in my accuracy this season, but I have been their 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%.

Current Week 7 record 4-11 (accuracy 26.67 % )

Last Week 6 record 5-12 (accuracy 29.41 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 38-73 (accuracy 33.33 % )

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

Chris Wondolowski has scored three goals in four games to start the season after netting the Quakes’ lone goal in their 1-1 draw with the Columbus Crew on Sunday.

The Galaxy’s Robbie Keane scored the only goal of the game in the first match of the back-to-back games, Saturday at StubHub Center. In 59 league appearances since 2011, Keane has 37 goals and 22 assists.
Playing for a second consecutive match in a playmaking midfield role behind the front two, the Galaxy’s Stefan Ishikazi recorded the assist on the Keane goal. He has a goal and two assists in those two games.
After opening the season undefeated in four games, Whitecaps FC suffered their second consecutive loss in the front end of the home-and-home with the Galaxy.

CHRIS’S PREDICTION: UNDER 2.5 goals

Columbus Crew vs. D.C. United 1-1

This is the second meeting between the teams this season. Federico Higuaín scored twice and Jairo Arrieta added another as the Crew eased to a 3-0 season-opening victory, March 8 at RFK Stadium.
The Crew have won the last three meetings between the clubs. United haven’t won in Columbus since 2007, a span of five matches (0-4-1).
D.C. United have recorded back-to-back shutout victories for the first time since Sept. 20-23, 2012 following their 1-0 home defeat of the New York Red Bulls on Saturday. United did have back-to-back clean sheets last March 9-16, one a scoreless draw.
Federico Higuaín netted his fourth goal of the season, tied for third in the MLS Golden Boot standings, in the Crew’s 1-1 draw at San Jose on Sunday. Higuaín has been involved in six of Columbus’s eight goals this season, with two assists.

The teams have played to draws over each of the last two seasons, their only two meetings. The last league win in the series came July 20, 2011, a 1-0 FC Dallas win at BMO Field.
FC Dallas saw their season-opening five-game undefeated streak come to an end in their 3-2 home loss to Seattle on Saturday evening. Michel scored his third goal of the season, his second in as many games, both coming on penalty kicks.

Sporting Kansas City vs. Montreal Impact 4-0

Sporting return to action after a week off, extending their undefeated streak to four games in their last match, a scoreless draw with Real Salt Lake on April 5 at home in an MLS Cup 2013 rematch.
The Impact saw their season-opening winless streak extended to six games – but played to a draw for a third consecutive game – as Jack McInerney scored in his first game since coming to the club in a trade with Philadelphia in a 1-1 draw Saturday with the Chicago Fire.
The Impact have won each of the last two meetings between the clubs, including a 2-1 victory last June 1, the only encounter between the teams at Sporting Park.
The Impact have won twice on their visits to Kansas City, winning in each of their two MLS seasons. Sporting won in 2012 in their first trip ever to Montréal.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Sporting to WIN

Real Salt Lake vs. Portland Timbers, 9:30 p.m.

Real Salt Lake are the only undefeated team still standing in Major League Soccer following their 2-2 draw at Philadelphia Union on Saturday afternoon.
The Timbers saw their season-opening winless streak stretched to six games – but claimed a draw for the fourth time – in their 1-1 deadlock with Chivas USA on Saturday at Providence Park. The Timbers last year led the league with 15 draws, one shy of the MLS single-season record.
The teams met in a thrilling Western Conference Championship last season, Real winning 4-2 in Sandy in the first leg, then taking a 1-0 win at Portland to advance to MLS Cup 2013 5-2 on aggregate.
The visiting team has won just once all-time in the series in league play – a 3-2 RSL win in Portland in 2012. Real are 3-0-1 all-time at Rio Tinto Stadium vs. the Timbers.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: RSL to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals

Chivas USA vs. Seattle Sounders FC, 10:30 p.m.

Clint Dempsey took over leadership of the MLS Golden Boot standings with six goals – five coming in the last two matches – after scoring a pair of goals in Sounders FC’s 3-2 victory at FC Dallas on Saturday.
In his four appearances this season, Dempsey has six goals and one assist – he has been involved in seven of the nine goals Seattle has scored in matches where he has played.
Chivas USA striker Erick Torres scored his fifth goal in six games – second-most in MLS this season – in pulling his team back for a 1-1 draw at the Portland Timbers on Saturday evening.
Sounders FC are unbeaten in their last 11 meetings with Chivas USA, with wins in their last five encounters, since Chivas won the first two meetings ever between the clubs in 2009. Seattle has won seven times with four draws.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: Sounders to WIN
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals

Chicago Fire vs. New England Revolution 1-1

Defender Kevin Alston scored his first career MLS goal, in his 123rd career league game, in sending the Revolution on their way to a 2-0 win against the Houston Dynamo on Saturday at Gillette Stadium.
When the Revolution won 1-0 last March 9 at Toyota Park, it was their first league win in Bridgeview since 2006, ending a nine-game winless run in league and cup play.
The Revolution have won four of the last six matches between the clubs, after going more than five years without a league win vs. Chicago. But they have won the last three meetings at Gillette Stadium, and haven’t lost at home to the Fire since 2010.

  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?

    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
