I feel partly to blame for DC's spectacular crash-and-burn from the 2007 MLS playoffs. I've been terrible with my picks since a bad day in Las Vegas on Oct. 13 and I gave DC United my kiss of death.
I will abstain from making any more picks during this postseason to save further fans from premature heartache.
However, I do like South Florida to cover 4 1/2 at home against Cincinnati, South Carolina to win straight up in Arkansas and Arizona State to beat Oregon in the game of the day on Saturday. Take that to the bank.
