Online Soccer Betting Odds:
The Rapids swim into this Tuesday night pairing sporting a 6-5-12 record that ranks them second to lax in the Western Conference. With a 23-point tally on the season, Colorado has no hope of making their way to the top of the conference. In fact, they’re a whopping 19-points behind the conference leading FC Dallas. However, to make the playoffs, the Rapids only need to sneak up to No. 6. Right now Real Salt Lake holds that crucial position. On top of that, they own a 12-point lead over the Rapids. While 12 is not a death sentence, it doesn’t look like Colorado will be bridging that gap anytime soon.
Players to Watch: Tommy Smith (23 GP, 3 G, 3 A), Joe Mason (14 GP, 3 G, 0A), and Edgar Castillo (21 GP, 2 G, 4 A).
The Galaxy charge into this Tuesday night pairing flashing a 10-6-8 record that ranks them 4th in the Western Conference. With a 36-point tally on the season, LA is 6-points away from tying with FC Dallas at the top of the conference. It comes as no surprise to see the Galaxy favored in this matchup since they’re having the better season and wield more talent. However, Colorado got the best of the Galaxy very recently 2-1. Granted, the Galaxy will be playing at home this time around, so they should be able to extract their revenge.
Players to Watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (18 GP, 15 G, 5 A), Ola Kamara (21 GP, 9 G, 1 A), and Romain Alessandrini (19 GP, 8 G, 5 A).
