Colorado Rapids vs. Inter Miami: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Inter Miami and Colorado Rapids are preparing for their first ever MLS encounter when they meet at Chase Stadium on Saturday.

Miami are the favorites in the odds to come out on top but they head into this game on a three-game winless run in all competitions.

Colorado might well feel Miami are there for the taking and it should be a thrilling contest when these sides go toe-to-toe in Fort Lauderdale.

Colorado Rapids vs. Inter Miami betting picks and predictions

Colorado Rapids to win (+300)

Miami have sorely missed their iconic talisman Lionel Messi in recent weeks due to a hamstring injury.

The former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain star missed the Champions Cup defeat to Monterrey last time out but has returned to training with the Miami first-team.

That Monterrey loss came on the back of a 1-1 draw with New York City and a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of New York Red Bulls.

This run of results has certainly thrown Inter off its stride after what was a positive start to the campaign.

It’s not yet certain whether Messi will be named in the starting lineup or if he could possibly start from the bench as the 36-year-old works his way back to match fitness. Either way, it’s unlikely Messi will be 100 percent fit for Sunday’s encounter and that should play into Colorado’s hands.

The Rapids have been inconsistent of late but they have only lost one of their last five games in MLS.

Winning 3-2 against Los Angeles FC last time out, the Rapids will head to Fort Lauderdale confident they can cause an upset.

Over 3.5 Total Goals (+162)

This could be an end-to-end contest at Chase Stadium between two sides packed with attacking quality.

Games involving Inter Miami have tended to be high-scoring affairs in MLS this season and that looks set to continue this weekend.

Over 3.5 total goals landed in four of Miami’s last five MLS games and it’s good value again for this contest.

Luis Suarez is a man in form for the hosts, with the Uruguayan scoring five goals in his first seven appearances in MLS.

It would be little surprise to see the former Liverpool and Barcelona star get on the scorsheet this weekend for the hosts to add to the goal count for this game.

With Colorado being involved in a high-scoring game last time against LA, it gives further backing to Sunday’s game being one with plenty of goals.

Djordje Mihailovic Anytime Goalscorer (+450)

Scoring a brace of goals last time out against Los Angeles FC, Djordje Mihailovic should be brimming with confidence on his return to Florida this weekend.

The Jacksonville-born winger looked sharp against LA and took his chances well to help secure an impressive victory.

Mihailovic, who also provided an assist in that 3-2 win last time out, was playing in a role just behind striker Rafael Navarro and was playing the position to great effect.

Able to pick up pockets of space in and around the penalty box, Mihailovic is well priced to add to his goal tally for the season on Sunday.
