Orlando City vs Colorado Rapids Match Prediction

By William Hall

Orlando City secured a first away win of the season after beating New York City 2-1 at the Yankee stadium. Cyle Larin continued his impressive form by scoring the opening goal in the 31st minute. It was up to the 22-year-old to double the advantage in the 51st minute. This goal seemed to bring New York City to life, and they pulled one back through David Villa in the 74th minute. Orlando managed to hold on to the win, despite a flurry of chances for New York. Colorado Rapids suffered a third consecutive defeat, as they lost 1-0 to Minnesota United. Miguel Ibarra scored the only goal of the game in the 72nd minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Orlando City have been the team to beat in the 2017 MLS campaign so far. They have a 100% record at home, while Colorado Rapids have not managed a regular season win over Orlando City in two attempts. Furthermore, Colorado come into the match on the back of six consecutive away defeats going back to last season. They have been looking mediocre in the last few games. Considering the excellent home record for Orlando, I would back the home team for a win.

Colorado Rapids have conceded 1.5 goals per game on an average, while this increases to 1.67 goals in terms of the away games. Orlando City have scored 1.5 goals on an average in the home matches. Hence, I would back Orlando to score over 1.5 goals.

Orlando City win – 10/11

Orlando City to score over 1.5 goals – 5/6

Orlando City Preview

Orlando City are fast becoming one of the contenders for the 2017 MLS Cup. They have moved to the top of the table following the win over New York City. The game against New York was a major test for the club, as it was only the second away game of the campaign. Still, Orlando displayed champion qualities by managing a close fought win. Orlando have a 100% record at the Orlando City stadium. One of the few problematic areas has been shutting out the opposition, as Orlando have been able to secure just two clean sheets in the opening six games.

Colorado Rapids Preview

Colorado Rapids stay bottom of the 2017 Western Conference after failing to win the last five games. The team has suffered four defeats in these five games. The club may be regretting the decision to trade Marc Burch and Sam Cronin, who managed a win against their former club with Minnesota. Colorado Rapids’ only win of the season was a narrow 1-0 victory over New England at home. They have lost their last six away games going back to last season.
