It’s faster to list the teams who are playing than the teams on bye. The teams playing are NYC, New England, Cincinnati, Toronto, Orlando, LAFC, Colorado, Seattle, Portland, and Kansas City. That’s it. I like Steve Clark (POR, $7.4) in goal at home against SKC, and Auro (TOR, $7.9) in defense at Cincinnati. Nicolas Lodeiro (SEA, $12.7) is your man in midfield at Colorado, and at forward I like Gustavo Bou (NE, $11.2) at NYC, with his six goals in eight MLS matches.
