Reason For Colorado Rapids vs La Galaxy Betting Tips
Colorado Rapids claimed a 2-0 win at home to Seattle Sounders at the weekend and moved up to tenth in the Western Conference table, while last time out LA Galaxy were defeated 4-3 by those very same opponents, Seattle Sounders, and slipped out of the playoff places in the aftermath.
The stats all point towards a win for Colorado Rapids on Thursday and we’re expecting to see both teams score and over 2.5 goals, and have predicted a final scoreline of 3-1 based on the form and performances of both clubs and the results of their recent head to heads.
Colorado Rapids are unbeaten in their last five matches against LA Galaxy, picking up an impressive four wins during that period. Both teams scored in five of the pairs’ last seven encounters and over 2.5 goals have been produced in six of the duos’ last seven meetings, which tells us to expect plenty of goals on Thursday. Three of the pairs’ last seven head to heads have ended 3-1 and we’ve decided to back another 3-1 scoreline on Thursday and make Colorado Rapids the favourites to claim all three points.
The hosts have won three of their last six matches while their guests, LA Galaxy, have lost three of their last six in all competitions, which makes Colorado the clear form favourites and, with that excellent recent record against the visitors, our pick to win on Thursday.
Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in five of LA Galaxy’s last six matches and have conceded over 2.5 goals in each of their last two matches, while Colorado Rapids have conceded an average of one goal per game during their last six matches, which is what helped us form our prediction for a 3-1 final score.
We’re confident that Colorado Rapids will win on Thursday and have predicted a final scoreline of 3-1. The hosts have an excellent recent record against their guests and head into the game as the form favourite. LA Galaxy might sit higher in the Western Conference table than Colorado Rapids but they have been conceding a lot of goals of late which saw them drop out of the playoff places.
