How To Make Money Betting On Colorado Rapids
Colorado enjoyed a fantastic run in 2016, making it all the way to the Conferene Finals before being ousted by an in-form Seattle Sounders team. The Rapids built most of their success on a sound defense, which was strengthened further by the signing of former US national keeper, Tim Howard.
With his vast experience, the 38-year-old keeper led the team to the brink of the finals. He was superb. He led the team with outstanding performances and was the backbone of an already efficient defensive core. Colorado had the league’s best defense, allowing only 32 goals in 34 games. They were the only MLS team to allow less than a goal per game.
The Rapids downfall was their inability to score goals. Until this changes, bet the under in Rapids’ games. If Colorado can ramp up their offensive production, it will take a lot to stop them from lifting the MLS Cup. Howard only has another year or two left, so he’ll do his utmost to go out on top.
The second best team at home, Colorado are almost guranteed to win most of their game in friendly confines. Visiting teams find it almost impossible to maintain their fitness levels in the mile-high city. Colorado punish visiting teams, taking full advantage of the thin Colorado air.
Colorado are currently one of the best future bets. Only the Red Bulls, Dallas FC and New York City FC are stronger favorites.
