Sporting Kansas City has beaten the Rapids in three of the last five matches, however, the Rapids have won the last two meetings. The Rapids shutout Sporting Kansas City in the last match back in October. Three of the last five meetings between these two teams have produced at least three goals.
The Rapids haven’t shown they can play well on the road, and Kansas City is off to the best start of any team in the MLS. At home, I like Kansas City to get another victory.
