Well I didn’t exactly nail it in week 1. I ended up going 5-11 picking games. Some big games of note:
- Louisville City getting their teeth kicked in by North Carolina FC
- Saint Louis picked up an early win in what could easily be a Playoff Semifinal
- San Antonio drew Phoenix in a 3-3 shootout.

Week 2 What To Watch
Friday night you have 2 good matchups to choose from. Charlotte get into the action vs an Indy team that at multiple points last week looked like a group of guys that had never played together and Louisville City plays at Atlanta 2 where we’ll see if the 4-1 loss Louisville suffered in week 1 was fluke or if the Morados are in for a long season.
Saturday there are a full slate of 15 games starting at 3pm EST running all the way through 12:30. The 4 games to keep an eye on Saturday night are Tampa vs Pittsburgh, Nashville vs Saint Louis, Orange County vs Tulsa, and Phoenix vs New Mexico all of which have potential to be playoff matchups.
