MLS Cup Playoffs Conference Semifinals conclude tonight

By Scott Brown

The Conference Finals are almost set as the Eastern Conference Semifinals concluded last night and the Western Semis will wrap up tonight when Real Salt Lake hosts the LA Galaxy on ESPN2 and Seattle Sounders FC visits Jeld-Wen Field to take on the Portland Timbers on the NBC Sports Network.

As a group, our prediction accuracy is coming in just below 50% so far for the Conference Semifinals. None of us picked the dreaded Dynamo to knock out the Supporters Shield-winning Red Bulls, but four out of the five of our guessers correctly called Kansas City to advance over New England. Be sure to tune in to the matches tonight to see which of us correctly picked the Western Conference Final matchup.

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