Dang it. No Friday Night (MLS) Football

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

A big weekend of MLS action is at hand and although we do not have any Friday Night Football, there are plenty of good match-ups to keep you happy.

Philadelphia Union vs New York City FC--2:00 PM MDT--Talen Energy Stadium--MLS Live

This is a battle of teams I can't quite figure out.  I think Philly is overachieving and I think NYC is under achieving but I really don't know.  Call this a draw.

Montreal Impact vs Toronto FC--2:00 PM MDT--Stade Saputo--MLS Live

Drogba is going to start!!! Drogba is going to start!!! Drogba is going to start!!!  This is not why Montreal wins this one though.  Their defense will shut down TFC and take all three points.

D.C. United vs New England Revolution--3:00 PM MDT--RFK Stadium--MLS Live

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around does it make a sound.  This is about how I feel about this matchup in DC.  The Revs win.

Columbus Crew SC vs Houston Dynamo--5:30 PM MDT--MAPFRE Stadium--MLS Live

Remember when people were all like, Houston is awesome and they are going to win it all?  Yeah, right.  Columbus win.  Easily.

Colorado Rapids vs Seattle Sounders--7:00 PM MDT--Dick's Sporting Goods Park--Altitude Sports

Colorado has one win in their last seven against Seattle and have only defeated them twice at DSGP.  Draw.

LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake--8:30 PM MDT--StubHub Center--MLS Live

Sorry, not buying that RSL is that good right now.   LA win.  Easily

Vancouver Whitecaps vs FC Dallas--8:30 PM MDT--BC Place--MLS Live

Game of the week.  Both teams will be looking for full points, but I think the Caps want this one more and will grab the win.

San Jose Earthquakes vs Sporting Kansas City--1:30 PM MDT--Avaya Stadium--ESPN

Sporting is on a rough run of form over the last week and should be the underdog in San Jose.  Which is exactly why they win.

New York Red Bulls vs Orlando City--5:30 PM MDT--Red Bull Arena--Fox Sports 1

The Red Bulls need this one in a bad way.  Bad way.  They will defeat OCSC but it will not be pretty.
