MOST COMMENTED

[PREDICTIONS] Seattle gets to host another game after its thrilling start and the next victim is Real Salt Lake. D.C. United's clash with Chicago promises the most goals. For all the predictions, as well as TV viewing information, and to see how we fared last week ...

SATURDAY
Columbus (0-1-1) vs. Toronto FC (1-0-0) (4 p.m. ET, Direct Kick).
TFC got off to great start in Kansas City and that potent midfield will be fun to watch, but the Crew beat Toronto a year ago in its home opener. Déjà vu, baby!
Prediction: Crew 2, TFC 1.

D.C. United (0-0-1) vs. Chicago (1-0-0) (7:30 p.m, Direct Kick)
Fire defenders Bakary Soumare and Gonzalo Segares will be missing because of international duty yet the United back line is no great shakes, either.
Prediction: United 2, Fire 2.

New York (0-1-0) vs. New England (1-0-0), (7:30 p.m., FSC, FSE)
The last three meetings have ended, 1-1, and the odds might indicate a change is on order. So be it.
Prediction: Red Bulls 0, Revs 0.

Colorado (0-1-0) vs. Kansas City (0-1-0) (9:30 p.m., Direct Kick)
Kansas City won only two road games last year but has enough firepower to open up the Rapids, and can only improve defensively from last week.
Prediction: Rapids 1, Wizards 2.

San Jose (0-1-0) vs. Houston (0-0-1) (10:30 p.m., Direct Kick)
The Quakes are still sorting out their midfield issues and that's where the Dynamo is most dangerous, yet set plays may rule the day.
Prediction: Quakes 1, Dynamo 1.

Seattle (1-0-0) vs. Real Salt Lake (0-0-0) (10:30 p.m. Direct Kick)
The Sounders have a lot more going for them than just the Fredy Montero Mojo and RSL is cooked unless it can get back into FieldTurf mode quickly.
Prediction: Sounders 2, RSL 0.

SUNDAY
FC Dallas (0-1-0) vs. Chivas USA (1-0-0) (3 p.m., TeleFutura)
FCD has Kenny Cooper, Chivas USA doesn't have Sacha Kljestan, and both teams have questions in goal.
Prediction: FCD 3, Chivas 1.

 

(All times ET)

LAST WEEK
Last week's record: 2-5. Season: 2-5.
A tough first week offers plenty of upside, as in room for improvement! A pick of every home team would hit at about 50 percent, but where's the fun in that?

Score: Houston 1, Columbus 1.
Prediction: Houston 1, Columbus 1.


Score: FC Dallas 1, Chicago 3.
Prediction: FC Dallas 0, Chicago 2.


Score: Kansas City 2, Toronto FC 3.
Prediction: Kansas City 3, Toronto FC 1.

Score: San Jose 0, New England 1.
Prediction: San Jose 2, New England 2.

Score: Chivas USA 2, Colorado 1.
Prediction: Chivas USA 2, Colorado 2.

Score: Chivas USA 2, Colorado 2.
Prediction: Los Angeles 3, D.C. United 2.
