Despite the dullness of the competition the accuracy of my predictions was pretty sharp:
|Predicted Score||Actual Score||Points|
|Los Angeles||3||D.C. United||1||Los Angeles||0||D.C. United||0||-10|
|Toronto FC||2||Kansas City||2||Toronto FC||0||Kansas City||0||20|
|New York||2||Columbus||0||New York||1||Columbus||1||-10|
|FC Dallas||1||New England||0||FC Dallas||1||New England||0||30|
|Real Salt Lake||1||Vancouver||0||Real Salt Lake||2||Vancouver||0||10|
|San Jose||1||Houston||1||San Jose||2||Houston||0||-10|
|Chivas USA||2||Portland||1||Chivas USA||1||Portland||0||15|
For the weekend I predicted 5 of 9 outcomes and 2 scores correctly. For the season my outcome accuracy is up to 39.7% and my score prediction accuracy is up to 8.8%. Here are my predictions for the midweek games:
|Columbus||1||Real Salt Lake||1|
This is Kansas City's home debut in their new stadium. Their 10-game road trip to start the season was not very successful with only one win and six points earned. Will be interesting to see how they respond to some home cooking.
My latest SRS rankings after the jump:
|Real Salt Lake||0.800||0.101||0.901||0.077|
Real Salt Lake remains on top. The only change in the top 5 is LA dropping behind Philadelphia as a result of their scoreless draw against D.C. United, a match they were predicted to win. Kansas City remains at the bottom despite having the weakest strength of schedule. What this says to me is that Sporting KC is just a bad team, not just a team that has been handicapped by a lack of home games. Their performance should improve somewhat at home, but I expect to see them at or near the bottom of the SRS rankings the rest of the season.
