Colorado Rapids-New England Revolution Betting Preview: Why a home win looks on the cards

With the hosts in decent form at home, and the visitors awful on the road, Phil Kitromilides deduces that there is only one logical bet
Two teams in search of a play off place meet in Denver as the Rapids welcome the Revolution. The side from Colorado have been relatively tough to beat on their own turf in recent weeks, losing just once in the last six games at the iconic Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

New England meanwhile have an abysmal record on the road winning just three of their last 22 away games. A home win then would be the logical conclusion and Paddy Power offer it at a healthy looking 5/6 (1.83).

The Revolution for their part can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) with the draw available at 11/5 (3.20).

Though the Revolution won the last time these two sides met back in February, they have not defeated the Rapids in Colorado since 2002.

The winless away run stretches over some 10 matches, and given the respective form of the two sides that sequence looks unlikely to change.

Away from New England the Revolution have been poor, and there really seems no reason to think they will be able to stop the Rapids.

Though the side from Denver have struggled in front of goal, they know a win is vital for their play off hopes and backing them at 5/6 (1.83) looks like a sound investment.
