Six teams play twice this week -- Colorado, DCU, LA, Portland, RSL, and Seattle. Everyone else plays once. There are six more doubles the following week, with DCU being the only team to repeat the feat. l like Bill Hamid in goal @Portland and vs. Philadelphia. Go with Alvas Powell (POR, $6.9) in defense vs. D.C. and @Colorado. Clint Dempsey (SEA, $11.8) is a must in midfield, at home against Colorado and the Red Bulls. At Forward, try on Alvaro Saborio (RSL, $9.6).
