While Minnesota is not an outright favorite, it is somewhat surprising to see them leading the odds boards like this against an ostensibly better team.

The Rapids have been treading water recently, with one win, one loss and three draws, in their last five matches.

But Minnesota hasn't been doing much better with their performance. They have two wins, two losses and a draw in their last five matches.

In addition, while Minnesota will be missing five players due to international team call-ups, Colorado will only be missing two.

What’s happening here is that Colorado has overperformed this season, but their form has regressed - and it seems as though the soccer betting markets think that trend will continue.

With that said, we’re nearly to the end of the season, and even if Colorado continues to stall out, they’ll still look to lock a playoff spot in the West.
