3 Things: MLR Round 11

Editor's Note: It's Memorial Day. Like last week's game picks, these will be abbreviated. Take a bit of time to think about the meaning of the day.

Spoiler Alert: MLR Round 10 – Part 2

Byes: San Diego, Toronto Utah @ NOLA Both of these teams need a win. While Utah is the better team, they’re inconsistent.
