The Colorado Rapids are having a season to forget so far, and things don’t seem to be getting any better. They have now lost nine matches in a row and have also dropped out of the US Open Cup in that span. The Rapids will now look to put an end to their losing streak on Wednesday, when they will play host to Chicago Fire. Chicago have been in really good form lately, as they have lost just one of their last five. MLS Colorado Rapids vs Chicago Fire Spread and Prediction.
Date/Time: 6-13-2018, 21:00 EDT
Spread: Colorado Rapids -0.25
Total: 2.75 Goals
The Colorado Rapids (2-9-2) have been really bad in the season, and even more so lately having lost nine in a row. They are coming off yet another loss, this time by 0-2 on the road against Houston. In their previous match they were eliminated by a USL side in the US Open Cup. As far as the MLS is concerned, the Rapids are still stuck at the bottom of the Western Conference with 8 points. They have grabbed most of their points and home so far (2-4-1), but have lost each of their last four.
On the other hand, Chicago Fire (5-7-3) should be feeling grateful about the outcome of their last match. They played host to New England on Saturday, where the two teams split the points in a 1-1 draw. Chicago took the lead at the 63rd minute, but withstood heavy pressure by New England, who eventually pulled even at the 82nd minute. Chicago have been in solid form lately, having lost just once in their last five (2-1-2). They are sitting at the 7th spot of the Eastern Conference with their 18 points, just one point behind the playoff spots.
There has been total balance in matches between the two sides over the past five years (2-2-1). However, the Colorado Rapids have been really strong as hosts against Chicago in recent years, having lost just once (7-1-5).
Both teams are scoring and conceding goals at an alarming rate. There is no reason to look for a winner in this really weird match-up. We will alternatively look at the goals, where I will pick the Over 2.75 Goals here.
