New England Revolution @ Philadelphia Union
Game Analysis
This matchup is between two teams with contrasting styles of play. New England has struggled to score goals so far this season and their star players Juan Agudelo and Lee Nguyen will have a chance to change that this weekend. Philadelphia plays a very open game where they score plenty of goals, but this has left them vulnerable at the back, giving up a league leading eleven goals so far this season. There will also be questions surrounding the Union, as top scorer Fernando Aristeguieta and team leader Maurice Edu are in question for Sunday’s game. Monitor the status of both players as the starting lineups are released and if Aristeguieta happens to miss the game, then expect CJ Sapong to take on added responsibility in front of goal.

Line: (Pick) O/U: 2 1/2

Players to Watch
* Juan Agudelo, New England Revolution ($6,700)
* Kelyn Rowe, New England Revolution ($6,800)
* CJ Sapong, Philadelphia Union ($5,800)
* Maurice Edu, Philadelphia Union ($4,700)


Portland Timbers @ New York City FC
Game Analysis
Portland has stumbled out of the gates this year with only one win so far, but this is partially due to the fact that key players Will Johnson and Diego Valeri are still out with injuries. New York City FC might also be without one of their star players as David Villa’s status will not be determined until closer to the start of the game. Villa picked up a hamstring injury earlier this week against Philadelphia, and his injury would clear an opportunity for the likes of Adam Nemec or Mehdi Bellouchy. I would expect this game to be played very conservatively, with set pieces playing a huge factor, especially if Nemec and Fenendo Adi are up top for their respective teams.

Line: (Pick) O/U: 2 1/2

Players to Watch
* Adam Nemec, New York City FC ($5,300)
* Mix Diskerud, New York City FC ($6,300)
* Fenendo Adi, Portland Timbers ($8,900)
* Darlington Nagbe, Portland Timbers ($6,500)
