These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your bet slip before confirming.

Colorado Rapids Win 

Historically, Minnesota are favorites to win having won 50% of the ties between the two sides ever played compared to the Rapids’ 37.5%. However, Minnesota have started the season in horrendous form. The Loons have lost all three of the fixtures they have played this season. The Rapids, on the other hand, have 4 points from their 3 games and are in better form. 

Double Chance: Colorado Rapids or Minnesota Utd

A draw has only occurred in 17.5% of the games between Colorado and Minnesota, so it’s likely the points aren’t going to be shared in this tie either. Minnesota have won 3 of the last 5 games between the two sides, they shouldn’t be ruled out as a result.

Total Goals Over / Under: Under 2.5 goals

Both sides have struggled for goals early in the new season, with Colorado and Minnesota scoring less than a goal per game so far in the regular season. The Rapids have 2 goals in 3 games (the goals were in different games) while Minnesota have only scored once this season. The upcoming game is likely to be a nervy one then as both teams try to not lose more than win.

Colorado Rapids vs Minnesota Utd Preview and Team News

Colorado Rapids

The Rapids will be without the services of left-back and Colorado native Sam Vines. Vines will be a big miss; he played over 1500 minutes of the 2020 MLS season. Three other first-team players injured but all are yet to play any minutes this season. Former USMNT defender Robin Fraser is at the helm of the Rapids. Fraser has been head coach since 2019.

Minnesota Utd

The Western Conference side have four injuries in their first-team squad coming into this game, but the major absence will be Finnish forward Robin Lod, who suffered a chest injury on May 4.  Lod has scored Minnesota’s only goal of the 2021 season so far and had 10 goal involvements in the regular season last year. Minnesota have been coached by Englishman Adrian Heath since 2016.
