LA Galaxy, therefore, will be out for revenge and Betway price them at 13/20 (1.65) to continue their excellent recent run of home form.
Colorado Rapids, on the other hand, have been poor on the road, recording just one win in their last seven away games and can be backed at 4/1 (5.00).
But the Galaxy's recent form in their own stadium is reason enough for us to want to back them in some way, with the side from Los Angeles recording five successive home wins, suffering just one defeat in their last 14 home matches.
However the price on them to win outright is a little short, so it is worth considering instead the odds of 4/5 (1.80) offered for both teams to score.
The Rapids have scored in each of their last seven league games - including twice against the Galaxy - while the team from California have only failed to score once in their last 11 league games.
This is a solid selection, backed by statistics and has an excellent chance of paying out.
|Both teams to score at 4/5 (1.80) 1.5 point stake with Betway|
