The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds are provided by Betfred, our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Vancouver Whitecaps win or draw

Vancouver Whitecaps have a solid home record while Colorado Rapids are not a great team on the road. Unsurprisingly, the Rapids have picked up just one win in the last six away matches against Vancouver, who have not exactly taken advantage of their superior home form in this fixture. There have been a couple of stalemates along the way. This makes double chance an attractive prospect.

Total goals over 2.5

This has been a high-scoring match traditionally with the two teams firing on all cylinders at both ends. There is no reason to think why this upcoming match could be any different, as the Rapids have shown a desire to score goals even if they have only managed one goal from the opening two matches. Even then, the contributions from Vancouver alone could end up in racking up the goals in this game.

Diego Rubio to score anytime

Diego Rubio has a decent record against Vancouver Whitecaps after three goals in eight matches. He has been particularly involved heavily in the recent encounters after receiving a red card and scoring a goal in the last two meetings against Vancouver. Rubio had a couple of chances against Austin to open his account for the season. He is likely to be on the end of Colorado’s counter attacks.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Colorado Rapids: Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps

Vancouver Whitecaps have every reason to be positive about the start of the season. The three points from the opening game was followed up with a disappointing 2-2 draw against Toronto. However, Vancouver’s away record is not the best. The team will be looking to dominate and control a match more than they did against Portland in the opening match of the season. The team will be without Leonard Owusu and Tosaint Ricketts for this game.

Colorado Rapids

Robin Fraser will be disappointed by Colorado’s return of just one goal from the opening two rounds of the MLS 2021 season. Colorado have to improve massively to make up ground in the league table. The club’s poor away record in MLS does not help the confidence levels ahead of this match. The team will be without Sam Vines, Lalas Abubakar, and Braian Galván.
