MLS Los Angeles FC vs Colorado Rapids Spread and Prediction

Last Updated on

Colorado woke up too late in the season and are now in dire need of a win. They will not have an easy job though, as they will be hosted by Supporters’ Shield winners Los Angeles FC in the final match-day. Los Angeles FC have had a terrific season and it would not be strange for them to rest some players ahead of the playoffs.

Date/Time: 10-6-2019, 16:00 EST

Spread: Los Angeles FC -1.5

Total: 3.75 Goals

Los Angeles FC (20-4-9) are coming off a strong match on the road against Minnesota United. They took the lead in the second half, but their opponents pulled even for the final 1-1. That might have been the fourth draw in the last five for Los Angeles FC, but they are undefeated in that span (1-0-4). However, they have won just once in their last seven (1-1-5). Los Angeles FC are still sitting at the top of the Conference with 69 points. They have been equally strong at home (12-1-3) but won just one of their last four there (1-1-2).

On the other hand, Colorado (12-15-6) exploded in their home match against FC Dallas, beating them by an easy 0-3. It wasn’t all that easy though, but Colorado were clinical in finishing their attempts. They could have even scored more goals but missed on a penalty kick. The Rapids have been in really solid form as of late, winning four of their last five (4-1-0). They are currently sitting at the 9th spot of the Conference with 42 points, three points behind Dallas and the last playoff spot. Colorado have been mediocre on the road so far (3-9-4), winning just two of their last ten away matches.

Colorado beat LAFC by 0-1 at home earlier in the season, but LAFC won both matches against Colorado last season with clean sheets. Colorado need a win here in order to reach the playoffs and I wouldn’t be surprised if they managed to cover the spread.
