MLS Week 22 – Predictions/Looking ahead in a busy week

Cuauhtemoc Blanco, Brian Ching

So with the anticipation building for Wednesday and the match at the Azteca, I decided to go ahead and get this coming weeks MLS predictions out of the way.  I am looking forward to an improvement in my prediction form but not expecting much as MLS just has a way about shutting you down when you think you know what is coming.  So to avoid being late due to mid-week madness here are the picks for this week, including my choice for winner in the Mexico v US match.

Overall Record: 8 – 14

MLS Record: 7 – 12

Last Week: 3 – 3

**Winners in bold and draws neither in bold

DC United v  TFC

Chivas USA  v  NYRB

FC Dallas  v  Columbus

Houston v  RSL

Seattle  v  Los Angeles

Chicago  v  Kansas City

It will be interesting to see how things turn out this week as both DC and TFC try to get back on track in MLS this week.  Chivas taking on NYRB can either be a match that puts some confidence back in Chivas or turns out to is a very dull game for all involved, maybe ending 0-0 or seeing NYRB pulling out the win over Chivas.  Although Dallas has had a good run of form of late, look for Columbus to take all three points in this matchup with their dominant play and strong defense.  Houston will have a few of their stars back from a mid-week clash with Mexico, but look for them to continue their good run of form and take all three from RSL.  Seattle has not looked good of late and I do not see that improving anytime soon.  Look for LA to take the match with Seattle and continue chasing frontrunners in the West, Houston.  Kansas City is short a few coaches now but I look for them to put on a strong performance and gain a point with a draw against a weakened Fire team.

The weekend’s action should be interesting if nothing else, although many will not find the time to watch with the Premier League kicking off this weekend.  Look out for my EPL week one predictions sometime soon as the season is mere days away.  I am hoping the predictions will turn around here, but if not there is always the EPL, which at times picks itself.  So here is looking forward to the EPL season as I know the rest of you are as well.
