Week 15 picks

Only five games are on tap this weekend, and several look like no-brainers when it comes to making picks. In the unpredictable MLS, however, you just never know.

New York at Columbus
With a loss on Wednesday at Toronto, and tonight’s inevitable loss at Columbus, it’s hard to imagine coach Juan Carlos Osorio lasting another week as New York’s head coach. Columbus 3-0.

Toronto FC at Real Salt Lake
RSL is winless in its last three home games, but that should change tonight. Toronto is as unpredictable as RSL, but fatigue could be an issue with Toronto coming off a win over New York on Wednesday. RSL 2-1.

Colorado at Seattle
With the slew of ties these teams have been settling for in the past month and a half, it’s hard to imagine this clash ending any other way. Draw 2-2.

Houston at L.A. Galaxy
The Galaxy have lost two straight, and there’s no reason to think it won’t be three straight after the Dynamo come to town in the midst of an 11-game unbeaten streak. Houston 2-0.

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