This is the most wonderful part of the MLS season. Playoff races are heating up: bye weeks, red lines, and CCL sports are at stake. Our prediction race is also heating up. With three games left in the season, it is time to shine for the writers. Most of us think FC Dallas holds pat at home, but that is far from a guarantee given the unpredictable nature of the beast,
Here are the top five:
And here are our predictions! Do you agree/disagree? Are we being a tad-bit optimistic? We usually are. Sound off below!
Becky is back with a prediction. She says tonight will be a win. 3-1. "LA scores first and then Dallas dominates the rest of the night. You know, much like that recent match where we did the same thing..."
|Ben Lyon||Win||3||1||It's the Diaz show for 2. Add one for Barrios. LA pegs one back late.|
|Cody Gamond||Win||4||1||LA strikes early, but Dallas comes back hot and heavy. 2 goals for Barrios, a penalty for Diaz, and a screamer for Figueroa.|
|Drew Epperley||Win||2||1||A hard fought game ends with FCD picking up three massive points at home.|
|Jack Hazzard||Win||2||1||Urutti with exciting brace! Winner for FCD in added time!|
|Jared Tilley||Win||2||1||Urruti and Diaz get the goals. Dallas starts fast and gets up by 2 in the first half. They hold on for the victory with a late onslaught by LAG.|
|Jason Poon||Win||176||1||We're winning this FIFA style.|
|Mohammad Bushnaq||Win||3||2||FC Dallas comes through with an incredible home performance after getting punched in the mouth twice. Diaz, Urruti, and Zimmerman provide the home crowd with the kind of performance diehards will be tallking about for the rest of their lives.|
|Nathan Hill||Win||4||0||FC Dallas so thoroughly dominates LA that the franchise folds the next day.|
|Phil Luetchford||Win||3||1||A new home winning streak starts that lasts through the playoffs. Diaz, Urruti, and Barrios score as Dallas effectively wraps up the Supporters Shield race.|
|Ryan Scalon||Win||3||2||FCD pulls out a nervy win! Diaz, own goal and Barrios supply the goals for the good guys, while Dos Santos and Donovan score for the baddies. Donovan usually scores against us.|
|Scott Hiney||Win||2||1||This one is just fun to watch with FC Dallas getting plenty of chances but unable to capitalize until the second half when Diaz and Maxi do the trick.|
