Ready for more soccer betting tips? Well, luckily for you, we’ve got one more betting tip for this weekend! After selecting three matches to focus on for the upcoming weekend of fixtures, our final betting tip for you to take advantage of comes on Saturday evening! This weekend, Austin FC will host Colorado Rapids!
As a brand new MLS franchise, Austin FC play their Western Conference rivals in the Colorado Rapids. It has been two contrasting starts to the 2021 campaign for the two teams, with Colorado looking to chase the No.1 spot in the west. Meanwhile, Austin are finding their feet in the league. The question is, who will win on Saturday night?
Let’s not be too harsh on Austin here - as it is their first season in the MLS. Despite currently being bottom in the Western Conference, Austin are only one point between bottom and 10th position, and do have a game in hand to try and make the most of. On a positive note, Austin have recorded some good results this season, including a 0-0 draw on the road to current Western Conference leaders, Seattle Sounders. The home side also drew to the 2020 MLS Cup Champions Columbus Crew earlier this season, salvaging a well-deserved point. It’s unlikely that they’ll be finishing bottom of the Western Conference, which would be a positive for the brand new franchise.
Meanwhile, in Colorado, the Rapids are coming into the weekend off the back of a 3-0 defeat to Western rivals Real Salt Lake. Before that, Colorado were four games unbeaten and over the course of the season, have put themselves in a strong position in the conference at this stage of the season. Now in fourth place - five points inside the playoff spots - Colorado are aiming to keep themselves within touching distance of the teams at the top, including the Sounders and Sporting KC. Therefore, a win against Austin FC would be an extremely important three points for the Rapids.
With Austin FC being a brand new MLS franchise for this season, there’s only one previous head to head result for our experts - or anyone for that matter - to analyze. If that wasn’t enough, their only game against each other ended with a surprise victory for Austin. Back in April, in Austin FC’s second ever MLS game as a franchise, they recorded their first win in their history books, beating the Rapids 3-1 in Colorado. It was a huge result for Austin FC at the time, and now they have the chance to host Colorado, and will definitely be hoping to do the same again.
Below, you’ll find the exact details of the last result of the two teams going head to head, as well as our own statistical highlights. This is what we see and consider when putting together the latest soccer betting tips! From this, you can make the most of our predictions and place your wagers on the upcoming fixtures.
After analyzing all of the information we have, our soccer experts are predicting that it will be Colorado Rapids that are victorious on Saturday night. We have also found that bookmakers are offering some appealing odds for this result!
On the Borgata sportsbook, you can select Colorado Rapids to win on the road against Austin FC at odds of +210! We think that these odds are definitely something you should consider when placing your bets at the weekend.
The Rapids are certainly going into this fixture as the stronger team, and with an impressive season so far, we predict that it’s likely they continue their campaign with a win here. Austin FC will try their best to keep their 100% record against their opponents, but unfortunately we think that the away side will be too strong on the day. On top of that, a win for Colorado will put them higher in the table, and even closer to those at the top of the Western Conference.
