MLS 2019 picks

These almost always go horribly wrong since MLS is nearly impossible to predict from year to year but I’m going to do it anyway.

Here are my picks for 2019:

Eastern Conference

  1. Atlanta United
  2. New York Red Bulls
  3. DC United
  4. Columbus Crew
  5. New York City FC
  6. Philadelphia Union
  7. Chicago Fire
  8. Toronto FC
  9. Montreal Impact
  10. Orlando City
  11. New England Revolution
  12. FC Cincinnati

Western Conference

  1. Sporting Kansas City
  2. Los Angeles FC
  3. Portland Timbers
  4. Seattle Sounders
  5. Los Angeles Galaxy
  6. Houston Dynamo
  7. Real Salt Lake
  8. FC Dallas
  9. Vancouver Whitecaps
  10. Minnesota United
  11. Colorado Rapids
  12. San Jose Earthquakes

MLS Cup: Sporting Kansas City over Atlanta United

I think the Fire are capable of being a solid playoff contender in the East if they manage to add Gaitan and Nilsson plus another outside back. There shouldn’t be any doubt that they will be able to score goals but the concern remains whether or not they will allow more than they are able to put into the back of the net on the other end.

The East will be a mad scramble. Any of the teams outside of the top two is capable of missing the playoffs.
