You have to feel sorry for the fans at BMO field, they're consistently some of the loudest and proudest in MLS, but their team consistently stinks it up on the field. Look for the Whitecaps to get their first ever MLS win in their first match.
A couple of teams that are in a transition period, with many predicting DC to be on the rise and the Crew to be falling from grace. Both teams have very news rosters, and I think it'll end up in a draw with two debutants scoring, possibly Jeff Cunningham and Charlie Davies.
More after the jump...
New York have lost Juan Pablo Angel but Seattle also look lacking in offensive firepower with the losses of Sanna Nyassi and recently Blaise Nkufo. I think the Red Bulls will come out as winners, although I don't think Henry will score; instead look for Dane Richards to be a threat again.
Houston Dynamo 2-2 Philadelphia Union
Philadelphia like to attack and I think with Mwanga and Le Toux they should be able to get at 'Houston and score. On the other hand, they're defense isn't the best and I can see Houston grabbing some goals as well. An exciting tie should be the result.
I can see Ferreira again running the show in Dallas, especially against a poor Fire team. Dallas have lost some key players, like Aiba Harris, Dax McCarty, and Jeff Cunningham, but they should still be able to comprehensibly beat Chicago at Pizza Hut Park.
I like the look of the Timbers this season (literally, they're jerseys are awesome) but against the champs they'll just lose out, Casey getting the lone goal in a boring match.
I think KC will do well this season, with Omar Bravo, Kei Kamara, and a player I'm really high on: Ryan Smith. Chivas on the other hand still lack idendity despite a great new coach in Robin Fraser. It won't be a great match but I think KC will dominate and get their first win as Sporting.
RSL are going to do great things this year, and they'll start with a win. This is not the same Quakes team that lost 3-0 to RSL on the opening day of last season, but I think RSL will still get a win. I really doubt Chris Wondolowski's ability to match his 2010 exploits and with RSL's defense at its best, San Jose will just lose out in an exciting game.
No way the Galaxy lose this one. Easy stuff for them.
