Joe Hojnacki and John Bava were tops again last week. The department heads are starting to leave the rest of us common folk in the dust. Each Joe and John are carrying a nearly 50% record at this point, well above the rest of the writers.
MLS Pick ‘Em 2017 – Week 6
This week, the Fire welcome Columbus to Chicago. Bastian Schweinsteiger will want to build on last week’s draw at home to Montreal Impact. Columbus are the sleeper team in the eastern conference and have started very well. Can they keep the good times rolling against Chicago on their turf?
D.C. scored their first goals of 2017 last week with a 2-0 win over Philadelphia Union. This week, they take on a much tougher opponent with NYCFC. City is starting to click and earn results. Last year’s eastern conference runner-up is looking to avoid the slow start that saw them finish second. In 2016, NYC was one of the best road teams in the league, can they keep it up in 2017?
Two teams with very good offenses and suspect defenses meet in Toronto. Toronto FC welcomes the debutante darlings of the league, Atlanta United FC. Atlanta’s attack was blanked last week in Seattle, and will look to gear up again against the Reds. With both teams having weaker backlines, this one has the potential to be a shootout.
Minnesota may have found their first win last week, but can they build some momentum and steal a second. While the visit to Dallas may be daunting, the home team is still nursing their wounds from a horror show champions league exit. If there was a time to catch Dallas napping, it might be now.
