MLS Week 29 Predictions - The End of a Season

New England vs Chicago
7:30pm EST
TV: Direct Kick

These two teams are playing for nothing more then a bit of a spark heading into the playoffs. Both sides will be holding back a bit to avoid injury or cards. Chicago is dealing with some injuries while New England is all but 100% healthy (Pat Noonan is probable). Because of this and the fact that the game is a home one for the Revs, I think New England will get three additional points.

NE 2 - Chicago 0


DC United vs Columbus Crew
7:30pm EST
TV: Direct Kick

Again, neither side has much to play for, but DC has a lot to worry about. They don't want to sustain injury and Facundo Erpen, Bryan Namoff and Brian Carrol are all riding yellows into this match. Expect to see Bobby Boswell and Lucio Filomeno enter into this game. Also look for Jaime Moreno to try hard for the net so he can catch and maybe past Taylor Twellman in the search for the Golden Boot. For the Crew, well they would love to go out with a win.

DC 2 - Crew 1


FC Dallas vs KC Wizards
8:30pm EST

All conspiracy theories aside, KC will be looking for gold here. All FC has to fight for is a lock on second. Dallas will have Ronnie O'Brien, Carlos Ruiz, and Roberto Mina all back in the lineup while KC will, well be KC. I think the Wizards defense will be unable to hold FCD, leaving the MetroStars with a great chance at taking the fourth spot.

FCD 1 - KC 0


LA Galaxy vs San Jose
10pm EST
TV: Fox Soccer Channel, Direct Kick

San Jose has nothing to worry about while LA knows they could end the night in 2nd, 3rd or 4th place. Still, I would think they would rest Mr. Landon Donovan, but they will still have Herculez Gomez and Joseph Ngwenya. For the 'Quakes, they will be without Wade Barrett and Ronald Cerritos because of injury. This should be a good night for the Galaxy

LA 2 - San Jose 1


Chivas USA vs MetroStars
Sunday - 4pm EST

The MetroStars have missed many an opportunity to get easy points this year; so don't be shocked if it happens again. For Chivas, they have a chance to not finish in the bottom of the West. Three points put them above Real and something to brag about. However, the Stars will be throwing everything at them. They have looked better in the last couple weeks, but might let their nerves get the best of them. Still, we are talking about Chivas, so how hard could it be?
