Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 14 March 2020
Kick-Off at 23.00 UK
Venue: BC Place Stadium.
Even though they were labelled as the weakest team in the MLS campaign this year by many, Vancouver Whitecaps have caused a big upset last week. They were victorious on the road against LA Galaxy, which surely boosted morale and team spirits ahead of Saturday’s clash at BC Place Stadium in Canada against Colorado Rapids.
Team from Denver is surely going to be the biggest challenge so far, a squad with 100% win rate in the opening rounds. Interestingly, the odds are slightly favouring Vancouver at 2.40 rate to win this match. We see zero value in backing that option. Let’s dive deeper into form and recent news.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids Prediction
Colorado Rapids are regarded as one of the biggest playoff contenders in 2020 campaign. Their results during the pre-season were solid, while the first two weeks in MLS saw them collect maximum six points. It started with a win against DC United on the road, followed with a home win against Orlando City. Interestingly, none of the players scored two goals so far. Fans are expecting much from striker Jonathan Lewis though.
As stated above, Vancouver are most likely going to spend this season sitting in the lower part of the table. They didn’t impress in the first showing at this stadium either, losing to Sporting KC convincingly. We are backing away victory as the first bet at great 2.75 price. When it comes to the alternative, banker option is goal to be scored in both halves.
