Another quick pick before the evening hits. One MLS game on tap for tonight and it should be an entertaining affair with the home debut of the Portland Timbers against the Chicago Fire.

Chicago at Portland: This one is simple, should Chicago’s defense step up and hold Portland’s emotions in check, then the Fire should stand a good chance in this one. Thing is the Timbers have had plenty of rest to get ready for this one. They are ready to blow to roof off their stadium in this home debut and the fans will be energized to pack this place. Expect a great atmosphere that rivals the top ones in the league. Portland rides the emotions in a crazy back and forth game.

WVH Prediction: Portland 2, Chicago 1
