MLS Week 4 picks

Last week I posted a respectable 4-4 in my weekly MLS picks, but tonight I’m gunning for a 7-0 record – I know, about as likely as a D.J. Countess clean sheet.

FC Dallas at Toronto FC
Dallas’ defense is a joke right now, and Toronto should be flaming pissed after last week’s lack-luster effort against visiting Seattle. Toronto 3-0.

Chicago at San Jose
Outside of a 15-minute stretch against Houston, San Jose hasn’t scored a goal in its other 255 minutes. That’s bad news with a stingy Chicago team coming to town. Chicago 2-0

D.C. United at Real Salt Lake
I underestimated what an advantage Rio Tinto Stadium is for RSL and picked a draw last week against Columbus. I won’t make that mistake again today. RSL 3-1.

Colorado at Columbus
Even though the defending champs haven’t been playing well at all, I just have a feeling this is the week they get back on track. Columbus 2-1.

New York at Houston
The last time New York visited Houston it pulled off the biggest playoff shocker in MLS history. There’s too much pride in the Dynamo locker room to let it happen again five months later. Houston 2-0.

Chivas USA at L.A. Galaxy
The Galaxy have one point and five goals against to show for their first two home games. Chivas, meanwhile, has nine points in three games. This is a very predictable outcome. Chivas 3-2.

Kansas City at Seattle
The Wizards are playing very well right now, and even though Seattle is the toast of the league right now, I believe the visitors will escape with at least one point. Draw 1-1.

Week 2 record: 0-7
Week 3 record: 4-4

Note: With three options in soccer picks, 33% would be considered average.
