New York City vs Colorado Rapids betting tips: Major League Soccer preview, predictions and odds

Over 2.5 goals is 7/10.

NYCFC to win and over 2.5 goals is 5/4.

NYCFC to win and both teams to score is 11/5.

Héber is 9/2 to break the deadlock and 5/4 to add to his 22 New York City FC goals. 

Match preview

The Ronny Deila era in the Bronx is over.

Last week, the Norwegian manager departed for Standard Liège after 89 games in charge of NYCFC, lifting MLS Cup back in December.

Former Manchester City Women Head Coach Nick Cushing is now in charge of the champions who, despite this change, are still chasing silverware.

In Deila's last game, the Boys in Blue beat Minnesota United 1-0 at Allianz Field with Alexander Callens getting the only goal.

This result means NYCFC are top of the Eastern Conference standings, having taken 22 points from the last 24 available.

So, despite the enforced off-field turmoil, the Pigeons are still strong favourites to win this one.

Colorado Rapids though will be sensing an opportunity of a first-ever victory over New York City.

Although, last time out, Robin Fraser's side were beaten in Denver for the first time in almost 14 months, going down 3-1 against Nashville SC.

So, since 30 April, they've alternated between winning and losing, with all five of their victories in 2022 coming at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

Thus, those inside Yankee Stadium will be expecting a home win.
