We have official finalists for the next two MLS teams: https://www.si.com/soccer/2017/11/29...innati-detroit

Cincinnati
Detroit
Nashville
Sacramento

I would rate their chances as:
1) Sacramento
2) Cincinnati
3) Nashville
4) Detroit

From the article:

As for the Nets moving to San Diego, that appears so highly unlikely as to defy logic. Teams generally donít move from the nationís No.1 media market to the 29th-ranked market.

Much of an NBA teamís value derives from its television deal. The Netsí deal with YES Network is reportedly worth $40 million a year.

Further, the Los Angeles Lakersí reach in Southern California is prohibitive to another team beyond the Clippers calling the region home, and the league appears to have its sights on putting a team back in Seattle.


I have a better chance of becoming the next Pope (and I'm not even Catholic) than the Nets do of relocating to San Diego!

If Toronto or Montreal don't have two teams why should the Twin Cities get two

Pretty much that, but why not just go ahead and expand to all four cities?

They're just going to expand again about 6 seasons from now, anyway.

They're going to expand next year.

They're adding 2 cities this year and 2 cities in 2018. Ultimately, it's pretty obvious they'll go for 32 with the following cities likely getting teams:
  1. Cincinnati
  2. Detroit
  3. Nashville
  4. Phoenix
  5. Sacramento
  6. Saint Louis
  7. San Diego
  8. Tampa

Pretty sure St. Louis is out of the running for any kind of expansion football team...

FWIT, Seattle approved a major rebuild of KeyArena yesterday. Will be NHL ready by 2020. NHL is likely to either move or expand to Seattle with an announcement by mid-'18. NBA to follow? We'll see.

Yeah St. Louis and San Diego said no to public funding.

The cities aren't going have Teams 24-28. But Teams 28-32 will likely come in 5 years or so. I think that's plenty of time for both cities to build solid bids. Most importantly, MLS wants both of these cities really badly.
