No USL pick this week, I’ll be at the Tacoma FC – BYU Cougars game, and have already posted a bunch of bonus picks for the week So, this time around it’ll be all MLS. (I’ll put up a post for my Gold Cup quarter final picks tomorrow.)
Thursday, June 14
FC Dallas @ Real Salt Lake—1-2 RSL
With Ruiz and Cooper gone the Hoops will have a hard time, though I think Toja will continue to shine. Esky and Adu will get goals in the run of play and RSL gets there first MLS win of the year.
Saturday, June 16
Columbus Crew @ New England Revolution —0-2 New England
A visit by the anemic looking Crew will get New England back into their winning ways, but I don’t think this will be a lopsided game anywhere but on the scoreboard.
Chicago Fire @ DC United—0-3 DC
Emilio and Fred should be able to feast on a poor Fire side. This one will be even more gas on the ‘Sack Dave’ bonfire.
Kansas City @ New York Red Bull—1-2
Angel will net at least another goal, and the Wizards will show everyone just how much the miss Eddie Johnson.
Colorado Rapids @ Chivas USA—0-1 Chivas
The Goats should get three points from a rapidly falling Colorado team.
Sunday, June 17
FC Dallas @ Toronto FC—1-2 Toronto
A game on three days rest at the BMO will be too much for FC Dallas, who’ll hold on to their first place standing in the West, but lose a lot of ground this week.
Real Salt Lake @ Los Angeles Galaxy 3-0 RSL
After a win on Thursday, RSL will really pour it on in this one. In one week they should match their points total from the rest of the season.
