April 15th, 2017

Last week's top five teams were Dallas, Toronto, Seattle, Portland, and Atlanta. This week, all five of those teams dropped points. Kansas City cracked the top five - jumping from 6th to 2nd - after picking up 20 rating points from Portland on the road. Other big results this week include Chicago over New England (23 points), New York City over Philadelphia (22 points), and Salt Lake over Colorado (20 points).

Toronto's loss to Columbus means Dallas and Kansas City are the last two unbeaten teams in the league. Fittingly, Dallas hosts Kansas City this weekend. On the other end of the table, Philadelphia are now at an all-league all-season low of 1396 and haven't had a positive result since opening weekend (a draw on the road to Vancouver). At this point, they are predicted to finish the season on a dismal 27.97 points.

In Monte Carlo simulations, Kansas City's Supporters Shield chances dramatically increase, going from 5% to 18.4% in the span of a week. Dallas remains largely unchanged at around a 40% chance for the title.
