Colorado Rapids vs. Seattle Sounders Odds

While many teams across Major League Soccer are scrambling for form in a desperate attempt to secure their place in the playoffs, the Colorado Rapids and Seattle Sounders can be confident of their spot in the post-season. Indeed, both teams are comfortably within the top seven in the Western Conference, with Seattle leading the way in the top spot.

Nonetheless, both the Rapids and the Sounders will be hoping to build momentum ahead of the playoffs in order to give themselves the best chance of a run all the way to the MLS Cup final. Here are some tips and information ahead of the MLS fixture between the Colorado Rapids and Seattle Sounders on Wednesday, October 20.

Colorado Rapids vs. Seattle Sounders Prediction

Dick's Sporting Goods Park has been one of the toughest venues for opposition teams to visit in MLS this season. Indeed, the Colorado Rapids are unbeaten in their last 13 league matches played in front of their fans, and Robin Fraser's side will hope to use that home advantage to claim a positive result against Seattle on Wednesday evening.

However, the Seattle Sounders currently boast the best away record in the Western Conference. Remarkably, Brian Schmetzer's team has lost just three of 14 away matches in MLS this season. Perhaps even more impressive is that Seattle has conceded 13 goals in those 14 away matches in 2021.

At the other end of the pitch, only Sporting KC (52) have scored more goals than the Sounders (49). There have been over 2.5 total goals scored in Seattle's last five league matches, while there have been over 2.5 total goals in Colorado's last four league matches. This suggests Wednesday's fixture will witness several goals.

Colorado's recent form has been patchy - two wins and two defeats from their last four MLS matches - and so Fraser's team could do with a victory here as they prepare for the playoffs. A victory over the Seattle Sounders would prove to the Rapids that they can beat anyone in the league.

Colorado Rapids vs. Seattle Sounders Picks

  • 1u - Seattle Sounders Moneyline (+300)
  • 1u - Over 2.5 Total Goals (+100)
