It seems we haven’t had enough matches in MLS recently, so once again it’s easier to list the teams who are playing once, which are: Chicago, New England, LAFC, Austin, Montreal, Portland, Houston, Vancouver. Everyone else plays twice. Andre Blake (PHI, $9.5) looks great in goal @ Toronto and vs. Cincinnati, and Walker Zimmerman (NSH, $10.1) is a great option in defense @ Cincinnati and @ Orlando. In midfield, Jamiro Monteiro (PHI, $9.5) is your man, and at forward it’s Valentin Castellanos (NYC, $10.8) vs. Chicago and @ Miami.
