Just like the title says, some quick picks of tonight’s two Major League Soccer games.

Colorado Rapids at Real Salt Lake: I’ve been waiting since the start of the season to see these two go at it. Without Conor Casey and Pablo Mastroeni the game has lost a little of it’s luster though from a Rapids’ standpoint. RSL should have no problem putting this one away as they just seem determined to be the best club in MLS this season. Beating their rivals and the defending champs will certainly help their cause out. Javier Morales should have a field day in the midfield with Mastroeni sitting this one out.

WVH Prediction: RSL 3, Colorado 1

LA Galaxy at Toronto FC: Don’t sleep on Toronto in this one, the Reds are getting better and could easily surprise LA in this one if the Galaxy aren’t careful. Toronto has been pretty solid at BMO Field over the last year or so but LA always seems to go for the “road ¬†draw”. If the Galaxy attack doesn’t come alive for this one then it will end that way. A draw feels like the right call.

WVH Prediction: Toronto 1, LA 1
