The Philadelphia Union burst on the scene last season, coming so close to winning the MLS cup. The Union were unable to hold on to their lead late in the game during extra time and would go on to lose to Los Angeles FC in a penalty shootout.

Under the direction of head coach Jim Curtain, the Union have been one of the best teams in the league over the last few seasons, and are again in contention for the MLS Cup.

With their outstanding goaltender Andre Blake and one of the top MLS players, Dániel Gazdag who made 34 appearances (34 starts) for the Union in the 2022, finishing the season with 22 goals and 10 assists, the Union are a team that keep an eye on to win their first MLS Cup this season.

Can the union finally go all the way and win it this year?

They have the quality and return many of the key players from last year's final appearance, but they haven't been able to show they can get over the hump in the bigger games, like their late-game loss in the MLS Cup to LA and their recent loss against Messi and Inter Miami in the Leagues Cup in front of a sellout home crowd, the team lost 4-1.

The Pick: My choice would be one of the new kids on the block, St. Louis City FC, which is playing in its expansion season. Over the years we have seen a grab bag of results from these new expansion clubs with teams like Atlanta charging out the gates and establishing themselves as a force in the league from day one. Other teams like Nashville and Charlotte are taking more time in this league and are trying to pull themselves out of the cellar and establish themselves with more prominence. Saint Louis is definitely more like Atlanta and came out the gate to be top of the Western Conference when the league stopped for the Leagues Cup. With a goalie like former Dortmund player Roman Burki and forward Nicholas Gioacchini, you can expect St. Louis City SC to continue their fine form, and to be able to get them at +1000 is good value for a team that is currently sitting at the top of the standings with the best goal differential in the MLS.
