Here we are once again with our weekly staff picks. We did OK last week, and that's about as good as it gets for us here at Total MLS so celebrations were had. Let's take a look at what's going on this week. Steven and Ian alone believe that Houston can handle the very on form Giovinco and Toronto FC (which make Steven and Ian due for some extreme mocking). For the first time this season NOBODY picked the Rapids to win (which means they probably will) because when LA plays at Carson it's about as close to a sure thing as you can get. NYCFC is still getting the love from us at the expense of Columbus despite the Crew hosting this weekend. The biggest split this week seems to be DC United vs the Portland Timbers. Portland has been very good lately, but their away form seems to have given some of our staffers pause. We'll see how it goes. Enjoy the soccer this weekend!
