Columbus Crew vs. Los Angeles (Saturday, 8.30pm)
These sides have met three times previously, with the Black and Gold winning each of those contests by a combined score of 5-0.
We say: Columbus Crew 0-2 Los Angeles FC
Both of these teams have struggled this month, but Los Angeles have found ways to earn points numerous times this year, while the Crew appear to be stuck in a predictable playing pattern, failing to find many solutions.
DC United vs. Toronto (Saturday, 9.00pm)
The Reds have not won an away game in the US capital since 2016, suffering their worst defeat in Major League Soccer against them a year ago, 7-1.
We say: DC United 2-0 Toronto
When you are losing in the fashion that Toronto have been, it can be challenging to snap out of that sort of funk, and at the moment, nothing seems to be going their way, despite probably deserving a little better.
The Black and Red always seem to be able to recover from a setback, and we anticipate their dangerous attacking players will punish the Reds, who have yet to solve their defensive issues.
Cincinnati vs. New England (Saturday, 11.00pm)
On Saturday, TQL Stadium will host a fixture between one of the biggest surprise stories of the current Major League Soccer campaign, FC Cincinnati, and perhaps the biggest disappointment of this season, the New England Revolution.
The Orange and Blue will have revenge on their minds this weekend after the Revs knocked them out of the U.S. Open Cup last week with an emphatic 5-1 victory.
We say: FC Cincinnati 2-3 New England Revolution
Both of these teams like to play a wide-open style of football while being quick in transition, so there should be many glorious scoring chances on either end, with each possessing more than enough quality to bury those opportunities.
The Revs should have a slight edge because their midfielders are more multi-faceted, plus New England have experienced a lot more of these close, high-scoring games and usually find a way to come out on top.
Nashville vs. Atlanta (Sunday, 12.30am)
The Five Stripes, meanwhile, will head into the game seeking to get one over the hosts, having failed to win any of the last five meetings between the sides since August 2020.
We say: Nashville SC 2-1 Atlanta United
Nashville have been solid on home turf, picking up three wins and one draw from their last four outings in all competitions. In contrast, Atlanta United head into the weekend on a run of four consecutive defeats on the road and five in their last six outings. With that said, we are backing Nashville to make use of their home advantage and come away with all three points once again.
