Robin Fraser’s Colorado Rapids and Steve Cherundolo’s Los Angeles do battle in MLS action at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park this Saturday. LA lead the way at the top of the Western Conference after making a superb start. Colorado, who won the Western division last term, sit ninth having taken just 12 points from a possible 30. Despite being 11 points behind their opponents, the Rapids are the bookies’ favourites in this one. Check out our in-depth betting preview for the latest odds and best tips.

Colorado Rapids Preview – Can the Rapids return to winning ways?

Colorado Rapids had a sensational season last term, winning the Western Conference and finishing second overall. However, they have struggled to get going so far this time around, picking up just 12 points from their opening ten fixtures.

Robin Fraser’s troops made a decent enough start, sealing back-to-back wins over Atlanta United and Kansas City after kicking off with a 3-0 loss at Los Angeles. Since then, though, the Rapids have picked up just one victory from their past seven.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1609 GMT, Friday 13 May)

Colorado won their last home match, claiming a 2-0 win over Portland Timbers, but they were beaten 1-0 at San Jose last weekend. Can they bounce back with three points on Saturday?

Los Angeles Preview – Will LA keep up fine form with another three points?

Los Angeles kicked off their 2022 season with an easy win over Colorado, and Steve Cherundolo’s boys have not looked back. LA have gone on to win six more times in MLS to take top spot in the Western Conference.

Overall, Los Angeles have secured seven wins from ten games, drawing two and losing one of the other three. They are the top scorers in the league with 23 goals to their name, and only four clubs in the Western Conference have shipped fewer.

Colorado Rapids vs Los Angeles Betting Advice

These two kicked off their 2022 seasons with a fixture at the Banc of California Stadium back in February. The prolific Carlos Vela started his campaign in style, netting a hat-trick in a routine 3-0 home win.

Things were far different when the two last met in Colorado, as the Rapids romped to a 5-2 win back in November 2021. However, that is their only victory in four in this fixture.


Key Facts – Colorado Rapids vs Los Angeles Betting Tip

  • Colorado won the Western Conference last season
  • Los Angeles sit proudly at the summit after seven wins from their opening ten
  • LA have won three of the last four meetings


LA wiped the floor with Colorado on the opening weekend of the season a few months back and, although we expect the scoreline to be narrower, we fancy LA to get the points from this one. The away victory is nicely priced at 17/10.

Carlos Vela hit a treble in the February meeting, and the Mexican has netted four goals in total this term. Vela is the 9/2 favourite to open the scoring in this one.
