SFPI MLS Power Ranking Week 22

New, 6 comments

Rounding the Final Turn Edition

MLS: Portland Timbers at Houston Dynamo Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The dog days of August are here, and the 2017 regular season is entering the final 3rd for most teams. Surprising lack of movement in this weeks rankings which saw 9 teams maintain their position and another 8 move only one spot. This weeks biggest winner is Seattle climbing 4 spots after a convincing road win that leaves them unbeaten in 7. The biggest loser is Kansas City falling 4 spots after dropping 2 points at home in stoppage time. They were also a biggest point gainers and losers at +1.2523 and -0.5632 respectively.

NEW FEATURES:

Pace movement. How did last weeks results affect a teams overall pace from the last rankings

Playoff Picture. How the tables will look if my predictions are 100%

Timbers Rooting interest. Assuming a Timbers victory, what games should we watch and how should we root, along with what the table would be if the week broke perfectly for PTFC.
