Colorado Rapids vs Orlando City
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 8 March 2020
Kick-Off at 2:00 UK
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, Denver.
Despite the brilliant start to the new MLS campaign, Colorado Rapids are still sitting at the bottom of the list for outright winner odds.
It is more than obvious there is no much fate among bookies about this squad’s chances to achieve something big. They were looking solid during the pre-season though, so last week’s win against DC United in Washington is surely not a coincidence.
Orlando City will be the next opponent on Colorado’s list. Team from Denver is labelled as favourite to collect three points at 1.75 rate.
Colorado Rapids vs Orlando City Head-to-head
The last two head to head encounters between these opponents were extremely exciting to watch, having 10 goals total. Orlando have won the most recent one 4-3 FT at Florida in April 2019.
There were seven duels total, and Colorado were victorious in only one occasion while losing six matches.
The average number of goals scored in those is around 2.80 per match.
Colorado Rapids vs Orlando City Prediction
None of these sides have made it to the playoffs last season. Rapids were stuck as 9th squad on the West with only 12 victories in 34 games. The main reason behind that was terrible defending. They had the worst stats in the Conference and conceded 63 goals.
Orlando’s standings were even worse – 11th on the East. Playing away from home was their biggest concern. They have returned from 17 away days with only three victories.
As stated above, Colorado defeated DC United in the first match thanks to the goals of Kamara and Lewis in the second half. They can hardly keep the consistency and form though judging by previous results. Draw or away win is going to be our first bet.
Orlando City scored seven goals in their three pre-season games. Backing Over 1.5 Team Goals for this squad at 3.00 does feel as a massive value.
