Colorado Rapids vs San Jose Earthquakes Predictions

This is one of the toughest game to call this week in terms of full-time result. Both teams bagged a surprise win after a dry patch last week, however, I cannot see these sides as anything less than inconsistent. However, we have some good options in the goal markets.

San Jose kept just 1 clean sheet from 22 games this season, while Colorado managed a humble 3 from as many games. Despite majority of their h2h games seeing low turnout of goals, it is worth a shot going for BTTS and Over 2.5 goals.
