Colorado Rapids MLS Betting

It’s been difficult to be a Colorado Rapids fan over the years. Colorado was one of the original 10 MLS franchises all the way back in 1996, but the Rapids have had less success than any of the other original teams that are still in existence. They have lost more games than any other team in MLS history, and they have the worst all-time goal differential too. After a surprisingly great 2021 campaign, the team divebombed back to the bottom of the table last season, and they are expected to be a cellar dweller again in 2022.

Colorado Rapids 2023 Preview

There isn’t a lot of buzz surrounding Colorado coming into the 2023 campaign. Gyasi Zardes proved to be a bust after being acquired last April and was allowed to sign with Austin FC, and the Rapids turned down the purchase option on left back Lucas Esteves from Palmeiras. They have decided to go with a less expensive roster once more, as the Rapids rank 20th in payroll per Spotrac.

Colorado is hoping to buy low on a few players. The Rapids’ biggest move was adding Kevin Cabral from the Los Angeles Galaxy after two subpar years in the MLS. Cabral was a high-priced transfer from France two years ago, and the Rapids are hoping he can fulfill some of his promise with a change of scenery. They are also looking to Andreas Maxso to helm their back line as a newly minted Designated Player alongside Lalas Abubakar.

Colorado finished in third or fourth place in the Western Conference for 11 straight seasons from 1998 to 2008. The Rapids finished in fifth place in 2010, but they caught fire in the playoffs to win their first and only MLS Cup. They crossed over to the Eastern Conference Playoffs and then beat Columbus in penalties before knocking off San Jose 1-0 in a very strange Eastern Conference Finals. Colorado went on to beat Dallas 2-1 at BMO Field in Toronto to raise the MLS Cup.

The Rapids never finished atop the Western Conference table until the 2021 campaign. Colorado edged out the Seattle Sounders to finish the season a point ahead of the four-time Western Conference champions. However, the 2021 postseason proved to be filled with upsets, and the Rapids were bounced in their first match by the eventual Western Conference champion Portland Timbers. That left a bitter taste in their mouths, but it doesn’t diminish their regular season success.
