Market: Colorado Rapids win
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Smelling what is a golden chance on home soil this weekend, Colorado will welcome San Jose to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Starting with the hosts, managing to make what was an eye-catching return to winning ways last weekend, Colorado have continued to impress many this season. Last seen picking up what was a deserved 2-0 victory against fellow Final Series contenders Minnesota United on home soil, The Rapids should also be boosted by what has become a rampant record at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Including that 2-0 win last week, Robin Fraser’s men have picked up 13 points from their last five MLS matchups in Denver. Bagging themselves at least a pair of goals in four of those five home contests, Colorado should find the mood in their camp at a real high. It should also be noted, landing themselves what was a stunning 5-0 romp when they faced off against this weekend’s guests last season, they should be looking to make a similar statement on Sunday.
As for the visitors, while San Jose might have managed to land themselves a hard-fought point against Minnesota last time out, it doesn’t cover what has been a hugely worrying run of form. Still firmly battling it out at the foot of the Western Conference and the mood in their camp likely to still be at a real low, The Earthquakes are in the midst of an eight-match winless run, a run that stems all the way back to May 8th. Mustering just a pair of points on what has been a nightmare run, Head Coach Matías Almeyda will know that his struggling squad face another stern test when they travel to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Hit with that 5-0 drumming when they last faced off against Colorado, we’re backing a similar home victory here.
