Real Salt Lake vs. Colorado Rapids
Yura Movsisyan (7 goals), Joao Plata (7 goals), Juan Manuel Martinez (6 goals), Pedro Báez, GK Nick Rimando and Real Salt Lake (11-7-8, 37 GF-36 GA) put their unbeaten Home mark (7-5-0) (W-D-L) on the line against a regional rival. The team which has allowed the least number of Goals in the MLS in the Colorado Rapids (11-10-3, 27 GF-20 GA) and GK Tim Howard. The L5 meetings in this series (COL 1-0 RSL, RSL 1-0 COL, COL 1-RSL 2, COL 3-1 RSL, RSL 0-0 COL) reveals three Unders and the Home side 3-1-1, but the big thing here in this match will be the site. 

The oddsmakers have this one right, making RSL (7-5-0, 17 GF-9 GA at Home) the fairly healthy home chalks in this one, in which scoring should be limited with the first goal dictating who probably wins here. Expect the Rio Tinto crowd to be of some support in this spot making it hard on Shkelzen Gashi (4 goals) and the visitors on Friday night in the Week 25 opener, after some matches on Wednesday and Thursday.


Final Score Prediction: Real Salt Lake 1 Rapids 0
Free MLS Picks: Under 2½ -116 & Real Salt Lake -109 at Marathon

Philadelphia Union vs. Sporting KC
Chris Pontius (10 goals), Roland Alberg (7 goals), CJ Sapong (6 goals) and the Philadelphia Union (9-7-9, 43 GF-40 GA) play host to Dominic Dwyer (12 goals), Benny Feilhaber (6 goals) and Sporting Kansas City (11-5-11, 32 GF-30 GA) on Saturday night for this intra-conference match for both sides. The L5 meetings in this series (SKC 3-2 PHI, PHI 2-1 SKC, SKC 1-1 PHI, SKC 1-2 PHI, PHI 1-2 SKC) reveals the both teams to score (Yes) a perfect 5-0 with both sides 2-2-1. The Union (7-3-3, 27 GF-19 GA at Home) seem worth a small shot as betting pick here in the Match Result and Over 2½ marketplace (Union +225, Paddy Power) with Sporting Kansas City so darn weak on the Road (9 GF-16 GA).


Final Score Prediction: Union 2 Sporting Kansas City 1
Free MLS Picks:  Over 2½ -116 at Marathon

DC United vs. Chicago Fire
DC United (6-10-8, 26 GF-30 GA) welcome the Chicago Fire (5-7-11, 25 GF-32 GA) to RFK Stadium on Saturday night for an Eastern Conference match, which may be more important to the visiting Fire (22 points) who sat 6 points off the Redline (28 points) in the division as the MLS Regular Season started to wind down Wednesday. The L5 matches in this series (FIRE 1-1 DCU, DCU 4-0 FIRE, FIRE 0-1 DC, DCU 3-1 FIRE, DCU 2-1 FIRE) reveals DC United to be an unbeaten 4-1-0 and having W3 straight here at RFK, outscoring the Fire 9-2 in the process. With the Fire playing feisty and fast, backing the Over and the BTTS (Yes) seem wise in this particular spot.


Final Score Prediction: DC United 2 Fire 1
Free MLS Picks:  DC United -137 at PaddyPower, Over 2½ -125 at Marathon
Free MLS Props Pick: DC United Asian Handicap -0.75 +102 at Marathon

Toronto FC vs. Montreal Impact
Sebastian Giovinco (16 goals) and Toronto FC (10-7-7, 34 GF-25 GA) play host to Ignacio Piatti (13 goals), Chelsea icon Didier Drogba (8 goals) and the Montreal Impact (8-9-6, 38 GF-34 GA) on Saturday night in a big Eastern Conference Canadian showdown from the province of Ontario. The L5 meetings in this Eastern Conference series (MTL 0-2 TOR, MTL 3-0 TOR, MTL 2-1 TOR, TOR 2-1 MTL, TOR 3-1 MTL) reveals the home team to be 4-0-1 and the Over to also be 4-1. With the Reds in such good Form (WWWDW) and the game in the TO, small lean to the hosts here but with the prolific Piatti, Drogba and Dominic Oduro (7 goals), the Impact (2-6-4, 15 GF-19 GA on Road) have some firepower of their own on the attack and should score here in what could possibly evolve into a shootout and decent Over.


Final Score Prediction: Toronto FC 2 Impact 2
Free MLS Picks: Over 2½ -111 at Marathon
Free MLS Props Pick: Both Teams To Score (Yes) -137 at SkyBet

Columbus Crew vs. San Jose Earthquakes
Ola Kamara (10 goals) and the Columbus Crew (4-11-8, 31 GF-38 GA) welcome the prolific Chris Wondolowski (9 goals), Quincy Amarikwa (3 goals), Alberto Quintero (3 goals) and the San Jose Earthquakes (7-10-7, 26 GF-27 GA) to Mapfre Stadium in Columbus on Saturday night, for this MLS Regular Season Week 25 match. The L5 meetings in this series (SJ 2-0 CLB, SJ 1-1 CLB, CLB 1-1 SJ, SJ 1-1 CLB, CLB 0-0 NE) reveals 4 Draws in the L5 meetings and the Both Teams To Score (Yes) to be 3-1 in the L4. With the Quakes so poor on the Road (1-6-5, 12 GF-19 GA) and having to Travel 2,483 miles and lose 3 body clock hours going from California (PDT) to Ohio (EDT), the edge here is with the Crew at Home (3-8-1, 21 GF-20 GA), although the Draw line (+229, Paddy Power) looks like it holds the most perceived value. There are better matches this weekend.


Final Score Prediction: Crew 1 Earthquakes 1
Free MLS Pick: Draw +229  at PaddyPower

Houston Dynamo vs. FC Dallas
Max Urruti (7 goals), Michael Barrios (6 goals) and 1st-place (Western Conference) FC Dallas (13-6-7, 39 GF-34 GA) travels across the Lone Star State to BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston on Saturday night (MLS Live, TWCSC-Texas) to face Will Bruin (4 goals), Giles Barnes (4 goals) and the Dynamo (5-9-10, 27 GF-30 GA) in big game for 10th-place Houston. The L5 meetings (DAL 1-1 HOU, HOU 5-0 DAL, DAL 4-1 HOU, DAL 2-0 HOU, HOU 1-4 DAL) in this Western Conference series and Texas Derby—the yearly winner actually gets possession of an 18th Century Mountain Howitzer Cannon dubbed “El Capitán”—reveals FCD 3-1-1 over the L5 meetings and two 5-goal games the L2 times these two have played in Houston. Despite the Site, this looks like a good spot to take a shot on the short Road favorite, FCD (-138 Three-Way, 11/8 Fractional, 2.38 Decimal, Paddy Power) who are 4-2-7 (12 GF-25 GA) on the Road this season.


Final Score Prediction: Dynamo 1 FC Dallas 2
Free MLS Pick: FC Dallas +138 at Matchbook

Vancouver Whitecaps vs. LA Galaxy
The now 4th- place team in the Western Conference, the LA Galaxy (9-11-4, 38 GF-24 GA) head north across the Canadian border on Saturday night to face Pedro Morales (6 goals), Kekuta Manneh (5 goals) and the Vancouver Whitecaps (8-6-12, 34 GF-33 GA) in a big Western Conference fixture for both clubs. The L5 meetings in this Western Conference series (LA 2-0 VAN, VAN 0-0 LA, LA 0-1 VAN, VAN 2-0 LA, LA 2-0 VAN) has seen the Home side go 3-1-1 with three clean sheets in the wins and the Under going a perfect 5-0 with 6 goals scored in 5 games (1.20 gpg). 

Even with prolific Irishman Robbie Keane (8 goals), Giovanni Dos Santos (7 goals), Mike Magee (6 goals), Gyasi Zardes (5 goals) and former Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard and Morales, Manneh and Christian Bolanos (5 goals) for Vancouver (5-5-3, 20 GF-15 GA at Home), the story in this series has been defense. And behind unheralded GK Brian Rowe, the LA Galaxy (3-5-4, 14 GF-13 GA on Road) have allowed the second least number of Goals (24) in the MLS, only behind veteran American GK Howard and the 2nd-place Rapids (20). This could be 0-0.


Final Score Prediction: Whitecaps 0 LA Galaxy 0
Free MLS Pick: Under 2½ -125 at Bet365

NY Red Bulls vs. NE Revolution
Bradley Wright-Phillips (15 goals), Mike Grella (5 goals) and the New York Red Bulls (10-7-9, 45 GF-35 GA) welcome Kei Kamara (4 goals) and the New England Revolution (6-8-11, 29 GF-46 GA) to the aptly-named Red Bull arena in Harrison, NJ on Sunday afternoon for this Eastern Conference showdown between the respective 3rd- and 8th-place clubs in the conference. The L5 meetings (NE 1-0 RBNY, NE 2-2 RBNY, RBNY 4-1 NE, NE 2-1 RBNY, NE 2-2 RBNY) in this series reveals the Home club to be unbeaten in the L5 (2-3-0) and a deeper dive shows both the Over (2½ Total goals) and the Both Teams To Score (Yes) to be 6-1 over the L7 meetings. Here, expect Lee Nguyen (5 goals) and the Revs (3-9-22, 41 GF-69 GA at RBNY Lifetime) to lose again in the Garden State in another match in which at least 3 goals will be scored and one which may leave the visitors farther down the Eastern Conference standings.


Final Score Prediction: Red Bulls 2 Revolution 1
Free MLS Picks: Red Bulls -150 at PaddyPower, Over 2½ -125 at Marathon

Portland Timbers vs Seattle Sounders
Captain Clint Dempsey (8 goals), Jordan Morris (8 goals) and the Seattle Sounders (9-3-12, 29 GF-31 GA) head down the Pacific Northwest coast to Portland on Sunday night to face their regional rivals and the defending MLS champion Portland Timbers (8-8-10, 37 GF-38 GA) in this latest installment of the Cascadia Cup. The L6 meetings (SEA 3-1 POR, POR 2-1 SEA, SEA 2-1 POR, POR 4-1 SEA, SEA 1-0 POR, POR 2-4 SEA) in this Western Conference series shows the Home team to have W5 straight while a deeper handicapping dive shows the hosts here to now be 7-1-1 in the L9 meetings after the Sounders 3-1 win in the Emerald City on Aug. 21. 

The Over is also a strong 7-2 in the L9, averaging 2.78 gpg. With the Sounders (2-2-7, 11 GF-20 GA on Road, 31 points) now in 8th place in the West and just 2 back of the Playoff cutoff point, expect an inspired performance from the Sounders her, but going against a Trend showing a 5-game Win streak by the Hosts is too hard to wager into and may actually end up having some value in backing. With Fanendo adi (12 goals) and Portland (8-2-3, 27 GF-18 GA at Home) so dominant at Home in the Rose City with Joey Timber sawing off huge slabs of logs with a chainsaw, the club on the edge (6th place) of that aforementioned Playoff Redline and wanting Revenge for last Sunday, backing the Timbers for a half-unit and the Over for a full one are the recommended picks here.


Final Score Prediction: Timbers 3 Sounders 2
Free MLS Picks: Timbers +100 at PaddyPower, Over 2½ -133 at Marathon
Free MLS Props Pick: Both Teams To Score (Yes) -150 at Marathon

Orlando SC vs. NYCFC
The last match on the MLS Week 25 Regular Season slate sees 2015 MLS Rookie of the Year Cyle Larin (12 goals), Kevin Molino (9 goals), Spanish legend Kaká (4 goals) and second-year MLS club Orlando City SC (5-13-6, 38 GF-41 GA) welcome the electric David Villa (16 goals), Thomas McNamara (4 goals) and former Chelsea legend Frank Lampard (9 goals) and NYCFC (11-8-7, 44 GF-43 GFA) to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando on Sunday night (FS1, MLS Live (US), Sky Sports 2/HD (UK)) for an Eastern Conference showdown much more important to OCSC (4-7-1, 23 GF-18 GA at Home), who sat in 7th-place and off tying a Playoff spot by +1 GD with 6th-place DC United (28 points). 

Even though OCSC expanded into the MLS just last season, these two clubs have already played five times (NYCFC 2-2 OCSC, NYCFC 0-1 OCSC, OCSC 2-1 NYCFC, NYCFC 5-3 OCSC, OCSC 1-1 NYCFC) with the Both Team To Score (Yes) going 4-1 and the Home side 2-2-1 with two Draws. And the Draw (+229, Paddy Power) may hold some value here at the Citrus Bowl with New York City Football Club (5-5-3, 22 GF-22 GA) so good on the Road this season. Recognize.


Final Score Prediction: OCSC 1 NYCFC 3
Free MLS Pick: NYCFC +210 at PaddyPower, Over 2½ -142 at Marathon
Free MLS Props Pick: Both Teams To Score (Yes) -200 at SkyBet
