After only one game last night, we have a larger slate of six MLS games for you tonight. Once again DraftKings has increased the number of contests for this weekend, providing plenty of options when it comes to setting your lineup this week. As we look at today’s MLS Game Breakdown I will be analyzing some injury concerns, some key missing players, and look for potential breakout players for both games. Also follow me on Twitter (@jwl_15) for injury and lineup updates throughout the day.

San Jose Earthquakes @ Seattle Sounders
Game Analysis
After their debacle midweek, the Sounders will return home in front of their rowdy fans. Not only are their fans being investigated for misconduct, but so was Clint Dempsey who has been suspended for the next three matches for referee abuse. To make matters worse, Obafemi Martins was stretchered off midweek and will likely miss 3-6 weeks. I really don’t think the week could have gotten any worse for the Sounders, but a win would change everything. San Jose will be missing both Mark Sherrod and JJ Koval as both were shown a red card last match. Chris Wondolowski must continue to lead this team as they try to surge back into a Western Conference playoff position.
Line: Seattle Sounders (-1) O/U: 2 1/2 (o:-105 , u:-125)

Players to Watch
* Chris Wondolowski, San Jose Earthquakes ($10,000)
* Jordan Stewart, San Jose Earthquakes ($4,100)
* Marco Pappa, Seattle Sounders ($7,600)
* Lamar Neagle, Seattle Sounders ($7,100)


Vancouver Whitecaps @ New York Red Bulls
Game Analysis
The Red Bulls come into this game in horrible form, losing three in a row and four of their last six matches. To make matters worse they may be without Lloyd Sam this week who was injured in their US Open Cup match midweek. Ronald Zubar and Matt Miazga will return to the squad and both will bolster the New York backline. Lastly, the Jamaican National Team will keep both Kemar Lawrence and Darren Mattocks out of this MLS match for their respective teams. Mattocks is a huge blow for Vancouver as he is their second leading scorer on the season. Expect Kekuta Menneh to play a more central role this week and potentially get on the scoresheet once again.
Line: New York Red Bulls (-1/2) O/U: 2 1/2 (o:-110 , u:-120)

Players to Watch
* Kekuta Menneh, Vancouver Whitecaps ($5,500)
* Pedro Morales, Vancouver Whitecaps ($8,200)
* Bradley Wright-Phillips, New York Red Bulls ($9,300)
* Ronald Zubar, New York Red Bulls ($2,300)


New York City FC @ Toronto FC
Game Analysis
Both teams will go into Saturday’s game carrying win streaks that they would love to keep rolling. Toronto has been sparked by the world class play of Sebastian Giovinco, as he has three goals and two assists during their current three game win streak. Even better news for Toronto is that Jozy Altidore may be fit to start this week up front with Giovinco. This could be a perfect time for his return as they attempt to surge toward the top of the Eastern Conference. As for New York City FC, David Villa will continue to lead up front, but it has been the play of midfielders Kwadwo Poku and Mix Diskerud who have sparked the team to their recent success. They are in need of a strong performance from their defense this week though if they want a win against Toronto and their potent attack.
Line: Toronto FC (-1/2) O/U: 2 1/2 (o:-120 , u:-110)

Players to Watch
* Kwadwo Poku, New York City FC ($4,700)
* David Villa, New York City FC ($10,700)
* Sebastian Giovinco, Toronto FC ($10,400)
* Jozy Altidore, Toronto FC ($8,400)


Orlando City SC @ Montreal Impact
Game Analysis
Orlando City may have finally figured it out this season, as they have earned a point in four straight matches. Kaka continues to lead the team in every way and the return of Cyle Larin will be huge, especially with the current form he is in for club and country. As for Montreal, they will still be without Dilly Duka, Eric Miller, and Hassoun Camara, among others. Even with the loss last week, the Impact are still in good form, winning four of their last six matches. Both teams will give up some goals, but I think Orlando City’s strong attack will determine the outcome this week.
Line: (Pick) O/U: 2 1/2 (o:-115 , u:-115)

Players to Watch
* Kaka, Orlando City SC ($11,400)
* Brek Shea, Orlando City SC ($5,600)
* Andres Romero, Montreal Impact ($6,500)
* Ignacio Piatti, Montreal Impact ($8,200)


Philadelphia Union @ LA Galaxy
Game Analysis
The Union come into this game having very little success against the Galaxy in the past. The last two meetings between these teams resulted in 4-1 wins for the LA Galaxy. This week may just be a similar result, but the Union have been in decent form and will try to put an ened to that trend. They will have to rely on CJ Sapong up front this week, as Fernando Ariseguieta, Sebastien Le Toux, and Conor Casey are all likely to miss tonight’s game. As for LA, they will benefit greatly from the return of Robbie Keane and Bradford Jamieson IV. With the rest of the lineup pretty healthy, I expect the Galaxy to finally put together a strong performance that has been missing over the past few weeks.
Line: LA Galaxy (-1) O/U: 2 1/2 (o:-120 , u:-110)

Players to Watch
* CJ Sapong, Philadelphia Union ($5,800)
* Cristian Maidana, Philadelphia Union ($7,600)
* Robbie Keane, LA Galaxy ($9,200)
* Robbie Rogers, LA Galaxy ($4,400)


Houston Dynamo @ Portland Timbers
Game Analysis
Portland returns home this week in great form, as they have reeled off three straight wins. Fenando Adi has been a huge part of their recent success and will look for more goals this week coming off a brace against New England. Their only real doubt for this game is Diego Valeri who shows up on the injury report once again this season. As for Houston, they will be missing a slew of key players including Giles Barnes and Jermaine Taylor who are with the Jamaican National Team. Captain Brad Davis and midfielder Boniek Garcia are also in doubt and will likely miss the game due to injury. Houston will need a strong showing from WIll Bruin this week if they want any kind of chance to win in Portland.
Line: Portland Timbers (-1) O/U: 2 1/2 (o:-125 , u:-105)

Players to Watch
* Will Bruin, Houston Dynamo ($8,800)
* Ricardo Clark, Houston Dynamo ($5,500)
* Fanendo Adi, Portland Timbers ($7,700)
* Maximiliano Urruti, Portland Timbers ($6,400)
