Stadium: BC Place
Vancouver Whitecaps will be hoping to bounce back at home when they face Colorado Rapids.
The Whitecaps were hammered 5-2 by Los Angeles Galaxy over the weekend, but are strong at BC Place this season and the Rapids are struggling on the road.
A home win at 2.35 is our first Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids prediction.
Vancouver Whitecaps Odds
The Whitecaps are going through a bit of a rough patch with just one win in their last seven matches.
That victory came against Houston, by a 2-1 scoreline on August 6, following back-to-back 3-1 defeats by Minnesota and Chicago on home soil.
But they failed to build on that success in LA following a horror first-half performance.
Galaxy were 4-1 up at the interval and despite restoring some pride with a drawn second half, the Whitecaps ended the match with 10 men after Cristian Dajome’s red card.
Vancouver have netted and conceded in their last three home games, as have Colorado on the road, with Lucas Cavallini registering in all three to take his tally for the season to eight.
A home win with both teams scoring is Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids odds.
Colorado Rapids Odds
The Rapids have played their part in some thrillers in recent weeks, having won three of their last five games.
After following a win over LA Galaxy with a defeat in Seattle, Colorado beat New York Red Bulls 5-4 and Minnesota 4-3 before drawing 1-1 with Columbus Crew.
Diego Rubio’s penalty four minutes before half-time earned them a point against the Crew after Cucho Hernandez’s early opener.
Head coach Robin Fraser told the Rapids’ official website: “Interesting game. I thought both teams opened up and were vulnerable in transition. Obviously, they have very, very good attacking players and that gave us some issues early on.”
Midfielder Bryan Acosta and winger Lucas Esteves are suspended for the clash with the Whitecaps, though, while the Rapids’ away form is poor this season.
That remarkable win in New York on August 3 was their first this campaign, at the 11th attempt after seven defeats and three draws.
All six of Vancouver’s home wins have come by one goal, with three of Colorado’s last four on their travels ending by the same margin.
The match to be won by one goal exactly for either team is 2.35 and that completes our Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids betting tips.
