Competition: USL

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/4 @ 1xBet

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Western Conference table, Las Vegas will welcome the Colorado Springs to Cashman Field in the early hours of Tuesday.

Starting with the hosts, while Las Vegas might have claimed what was a much-welcomed 3-1 victory against Miami FC earlier in the month, Dennis Sanchez’s men have continued to struggle with their consistency since opening up the 2024 campaign. Once again battling it out at the foot of the Western Conference table, the Lights are pencilled in as a real underdog contender in this season’s play-off chase. Suffering a second-half collapse away at Loudon over the weekend as they eventually had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate, the Reds have collected just a single victory from any of their previous 10 straight appearances across all competitions. With that extended rut stemming all the way back to April 18th, Las Vegas have also shown some continued issues at Cashman Field. Including a 3-1 defeat at the hands of MLS outfit Los Angeles on May 9th as they watched their US Open Cup adventure come to an abrupt end, Wednesday’s hosts have managed to win just one of their previous six showdowns in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, while Colorado might have opened the 2024 campaign in the midst of a major USL nightmare, the Springs have come roaring back in a sensational fashion. Last seen over the weekend picking up an action-packed 4-2 victory at home against Orange County, James Chambers’ men have continued to skyrocket their way up the Western Conference table. In fact, signing off May with a routine 3-1 win against Rhode Island, the former Shamrock Rovers midfielder has seen his squad muster 19 points from just their previous seven USL appearances – a run that stems back to a 1-1 stalemate against the Indy Eleven on April 21st. Potentially smelling the chance to make another statement here, Colorado will also be excited by a rampant record against Wednesday’s hosts. In fact, the Springs have won all of their last four straight meetings against Las Vegas by an aggregate score of 11-4. In what could prove to be an enjoyable affair, we are backing both teams to get on the scoresheet.

Bet: Both teams to score at Las Vegas Lights vs Colorado Springs 3/4 for Wednesday’s USL matchup @ 1xBet
