The MLS playoffs kickoff tonight, and 12 teams will battle it out to lift the MLS Cup in December. It is as wide open a field as we have ever seen, making predictions tougher than ever.

The SBI editorial staff has made its picks, and while none of us are going to bank on getting rich due to the accuracy of the picks, you can rest assured there will be plenty of gloating if anybody actually comes close to mapping out how this year’s playoffs actually go.

Here are SBI’s staff picks for the 2015 MLS Playoffs:
