DC United have played two games and lost them both, Their first was a 3-0 home loss to Columbus, which means that they will look to destroy Chicago later on today. After a couple of games, the new boys on the team are finally getting used to this new style. They should be able to defeat Mike Magee and company by at least a goal.

Prediction: DC United 2-1 Chicago Fire

4. FC Dallas vs. Portland Timbers

The home side have two wins and a draw from their opening three matches. As they host a winless Portland who only have two points, they look to make it three. Portland are still looking to hit their groove on both ends of the ball, whereas their hosts are already clicking early on. This should be a comfortable win for Dallas.

Prediction: FC Dallas 3-1 Portland

3. Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Houston Dynamo

Vancouver has one win and two draws and will be hosting the perfect 2-0 Houston Dynamo later on today in a match where really anything can happen. Both teams play solid team soccer, but one side is slightly more talented and has the more experienced coach in Dom Kinnear (HOU). Look for an away win from this match.

Prediction: Vancouver Whitecaps 0-2 Houston Dynamo

This is clearly one of the best games of the weekend as star-studded Seattle look to get their second home win of the year against the undefeated and perfect Columbus Crew. Clint Dempsey will look to spearhead his midfield and attack while Federico Higuain will have a disciplined team that can defend and attack as a unit. This will be good.

Prediction: Seattle Sounders 1-2 Columbus Crew

Kyle Beckerman will look to steer his side to their second win of the season after drawing their last two games. They are a perfect 2-0 with all three goals being scored by Jermain Defoe. This game will be tough as both sides will play some physical soccer. However, there will be a winner and it will be the team with the bigger stars.

Prediction: Real Salt Lake 1-2 Toronto FC
