Freshly back from the land of the Timbers where they get Sounders games on FSN live (obviously dependent on conflicts). That's great if Seattle gets access to Clark County for Academy players. Plus it helps to establish which team is "major" first.
Remember these "advanced" pacing standings are based on season long form for clubs, as well as based on the opposition the club faces and how they have performed Home/Away. It also uses averages assuming in some cases point totals that can't be won in the few remaining games.
1 - Columbus (52) v 4 - Seattle (42)
2 - Chicago (46) v 3 - New England (43)
1 - Chivas (47) v 4 - Colorado (43)
2 - Houston (47) v 3 - Los Angeles (46)
The results of the weekend now push the Crew to the likely winners of the Supporters Shield.
Outside looking in:
Salt Lake (40)
Charging but way too late:
Kansas City (37)
Yeah, they still play:
San Jose (33)
Red Bull (23)
