Colorado Rapids vs Vancouver Whitecaps Match Prediction

Colorado Rapids vs Vancouver Whitecaps Predictions, Betting Tips, and Preview

The poor form of Colorado Rapids extended as the team suffered a 1-0 defeat against San Jose Earthquakes at the Avaya stadium. Rookie Nick Lima came up with the only goal of the game through a stunning long-range effort in the 59th minute. Colorado were unable to threaten the opposition much in the 90 minutes. Vancouver Whitecaps produced a surprise performance on the road to register a 4-0 win over FC Dallas. Goals from Bernie Ibini-Isei and Fredy Montero put Vancouver 2-0 ahead before Carlos Gruezo was sent off in the 59th minute. Vancouver were able to make the numerical advantage count with goals from Montero and Nicolas Mezquida. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Colorado’s amazing run of consecutive home wins over Vancouver Whitecaps was finally brought to an end in May, as a narrow 1-0 win witnessed the Whitecaps take three points away from the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for the first time since 2012. Vancouver are in a great position to repeat this feat after managing back-to-back league wins on the road. Colorado have suffered two 3-1 losses in the last two home games, while the club has managed just one win in the last five. I would go with a win for Vancouver Whitecaps. Colorado have been going through a mediocre scoring form with just five goals in the last five, although three of those goals came in a single game. Vancouver Whitecaps have kept back-to-back clean sheets on the road. I would back Colorado Rapids to score under 1.5 goals.

Vancouver Whitecaps win – 12/5

Colorado Rapids Preview

A run of three consecutive wins at the start of June appeared to signal an end to Colorado Rapids’ poor form, but it has been the false dawn since the team has been able to achieve just two wins since then. Colorado Rapids are one of the three teams yet to manage a win on the road this season. However, few teams have performed as bad as Colorado when it comes to the away games. The team has picked up just one point from 27 points on the road. Dominique Badji is the top scorer for the club but with only six league goals.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Bobby Burling (foot), Joshua Gatt (groin), and Shkelzen Gashi (calf) are unavailable due to injury.

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

After witnessing several bouts of inconsistent form, Vancouver Whitecaps are on the verge of stringing together a run of positive results. The team has managed three wins in the last four matches, although they face a huge test in the next two matches. Vancouver’s away form is not especially great with only four wins in 10. However, the team are on the road for the next two league matches, but they come on the back of consecutive victories on the road. Manager Carl Robinson will be even more pleased with the return of back-to-back clean sheets in the away matches. Fredy Montero is the top scorer at Vancouver with eight league goals.

Vancouver Whitecaps Team News

Robinson will be without David Edgar (knee) and Brett Levis (cruciate ligament) due to injury.
