Poll: Which team will most likely make the playoffs?

Eight MLS teams currently sit just outside the playoff picture

With a little more than half of the regular MLS season remaining, it's not to early to start looking at the playoff picture. Just like last year, the race is tight: If the season were to end this weekend, three teams would currently be a win away from clinching the final postseason berth. And as Real Salt Lake can attest, once you're in, you have as much chance as anyone at taking home the prize.

Right now there are eight teams on the wrong side of the playoff cutoff, but which one do you think will most likely sneak in come November? Let us know!

Check out the current standings, and be sure to study the MLS playoff tiebreaker rules.
