New York City FC vs Colorado Rapids 5/19/18: MLS Soccer Pick, Preview and Predictions

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

New York City FC will be in action this weekend as they take on the Colorado Rapids at Yankee Stadium. This is a game between two big franchises and both teams will want to get three points so we should be able to witness a great game.

The Colorado Rapids are on a massive losing streak and if they wish to do well this season, they need to turn things around fast. With players like Tim Howard in this side, there is quality but they have not managed to gel together this season. This weekend it is going to be very hard for the Rapids since they will be away from home and up against one of the best teams in the MLS.

New York City FC are doing very well this season and are currently sitting 3rd on the Eastern Conference. It is a very competitive Eastern Conference this season with many teams around the 20 point mark after 11 games. Due to this reason, it will be important that New York City FC manage to win games at home, especially against weaker opponents. This side is filled with talented players and are well managed so I expect them to be good enough to win at home.

All in all, I am expecting New York City FC to win this game comfortably. They have the better side, the better form and are at home. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price to wager on the home side. The odds are short but if we play this as a banker bet this seems to be quite profitable.
