Three straight wins and FC Dallas now sits nicely in 3rd place with a game in hand in the Western Conference. Dallas does hit the road to Atlanta where the 5 Stripes haven’t experienced a three point party in a month. Atlanta is a shadow of their former selves and in their darkest funk in the storied history (6 games without a win, aka your basic summer stretch for FC Dallas). Can Dallas make it four in a row?

The staff are continuing to make picks this season and we’re going with a simple points system for 2020:

Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Ben Lyon Win 2 1 The smug comments from Sounders fans this week...
Jack Rous Win 2 0 How do they do it? Ricardo Pepi
Jason Poon Loss 0 2 It's been fun but I'm not seeing a way out of Seattle with a win.
Jeff Loftin Loss 1 2 Close loss after controversial play at the other end which mysteriously doesn't get VAR treatment.
Mohammad Bushnaq Loss 1 2 Valiant effort but Dallas falls short in the Pacific NW for their revenge bid.
Nathan Hill Draw 2 2 FC Dallas advance on PKs and claim the Cascadia Cup. Goals from Jara and Pepi.
Ryan Scanlon Loss 1 3 Seattle’s quality and combination play will be too much for FC Dallas which will not let us get away with what we pulled off against Portland. Michael Barrios gives us a glimmer of hope with a goal before Jordan Morris and Nick Lodeiro put this out of reach.

Nathan seems to have figured this team out and is starting to pull away in the standings.
