FC Dallas vs Colorado Rapids Preview
Week 4 of MLS starts with FC Dallas as they take on the Colorado Rapids. Last time out FC Dallas struggled in Ohio as they fell to a 1 nil defeat to Columbus Crew. Colorado Rapids on the other hand fared better however will be slightly disappointing having conceded late to let 3 points slip at home.
Last Sunday I did fancy Colorado Rapids to get the victory against a bound to be fatigue Sporting Kansas City side who have played double the amount of times the Rapids have. It was quite a tense game and it took a mistake from keeper Tim Melia to gift a goal to ex team mate Diego Rubio to open the scoring just after the break.
Colorado Rapids came close however were unable to kill the game off and in the 88th minute were hit back by a nicely struck free kick by Johnny Russell straight after Blombergs dismissal for a second yellow.
FC Dallas on the other hand will be back at home looking to bounce back from there narrow loss.
To be honest FC Dallas haven't looked convincing so far and while they did beat Galaxy in there last home game I'm don't think they should be considered so clear a favourites with the bookies.
With Colorado Rapids yet to win I can see them building on there draw last weekend to get at least a point is Tucson.
FC Dallas vs Colorado Rapids Betting Tips
My main valued betting tip is for there to be 'under 2.5 goals'. I expect a cagey game here where both teams will be looking not to slip up here. Of course Dallas have the advantage with home ground however they haven't been convincing in attack so far, especially after loosing talisman Urruti. I also predict the game will end all square at 1-1.
As for a goalscorer choice I like the look of Kei Kamara, he had a good game last time out and his record in MLS as been great over the years, he's also linked up well Diego Rubio and it seems they already have a great partnership.
