Colorado Rapids Betting Tips
The addition of Tim Howard, the starting goalkeeper for the US national team for the past two FIFA World Cups, has done wonders for the Rapids confidence.
Howard, who is now 38 years old, had an immeasurable impact on the Rapids during the 2016 campaign. Colorado finished second in the Western Conference. Even more impressive, the Rapids had the league's stingiest defense by a wide margin. They were the only MLS team to allow less than a goal per game, conceding 32 goals in 34 matches.
The problem is, they had just as much trouble filing the oppostion's net. Colorado scored 39 goals in 34 games, tied for the second fewest in the league.
So the rule of thumb, until showed otherwise, is to back the under market at every possible opportunity.
