MLS Cup Playoffs Conference Finals kick off this weekend

By Scott Brown

The MLS Cup Playoffs Conference Finals get started this weekend as Sporting Kansas City visits the Houston Dynamo Saturday afternoon on NBC and Real Salt Lake hosts the Portland Timbers on ESPN Sunday night. This year's Conference Finals will feature a two-week layoff, with Leg 2 taking place after the FIFA international fixture window.

FC Dallas players Matt Hedges and Eric Hassli, along with the FCDallas.com editorial staff, are back with their picks for which teams will make the MLS Cup Final. Four out of the five of us guessed the Conference Semifinals with 50% accuracy, while one predictor (who shall remain nameless) went 0-for-4 in the last round.

Let us know in the comments what your predictions are and who you think will lift the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy.
