The Rapids have done well in recent years at RFK Stadium and will hope to continue that trend Wednesday night to move up the Western Conference standings.
Colorado comes into the game sporting an even 5-5 record on the year, and a win would temporarily launch the Rapids into fourth place in the West. Colorado already has two away wins so far this year, including a 2-0 road victory at FC Dallas in its last match.
The team is well rested after that game as it had a 10 day layoff, but more importantly Colorado has not lost to D.C. at RFK Stadium since the 2009 season.
The Rapids provide good value at 3.40 to take the three points, while the double chance sees them currently slated at 1.64 over at Ladbrokes.com.
Despite Colorado not having drawn yet this season, United has a third of the time, and there is a very good chance that this could be a draw which would pay out 3.20.
D.C. will be hoping to get more than a single point out this one, as the team is coming off an embrassing performance at Houston on the weekend, where although United only lost 1-0, Ben Olsen's squad was completely outclassed throughout the game.
The good news is that D.C. is back at home where it has have generated a 3-1-2 at RFK this season, but the home side will need a strong performance from MLS assist leader Dwayne De Rosario to reignite a potent offence - third in all of MLS - along with big games from playmaker Maicon Santos and striker Chris Pontius.
The Black and Red is paying evens (2.00) right now.
With United's 12 games averaging a total of three goal per match, and Colorado's 2.7 per, a decent bet to look at would be the over 2.5 which is sitting at 1.96 right now.
