FC Dallas Downs the Rapids on Soccer Betting

Online betting soccer fans watched how the FC Dallas was down to its third-strong goalkeeper before its soccer betting match with Colorado Rapids over the weekend.

Ray Burse was the only man left on the roster to play in the soccer betting goal before someone from the field positions would have to be commandeered to take up the goalie position.

It wasn’t a terribly confidence inspiring set of circumstances, but in the end it mattered little as first-time starter Burse kept a clean sheet and Dallas emerged from the contest a 1-0 and grabbed a much needed soccer betting three-points to move to just one point away of the soccer betting Western Division leading Houston Dynamo, which lost to lowly Real Salt Lake over the soccer betting game on weekend.

Burse, an MLS soccer betting rookie, came through when he had to and made three saves on the day.  He was also helped out tremendously by a back line that kept the ball away from the box and an attacking midfield that tried to take the flow of play to the Rapids half of the pitch.  Dallas’ offense finally broke through in the 31st minute of this soccer betting game, getting the only goal of the soccer betting game.  Dax McCartney took a well-struck free kick which US national squad member Drew Moore headed into the back of the net.

Despite numerous opportunities for Colorado to equalize in the second half, online betting soccer experts saw that the Rapids just couldn’t get it done.  The team squandered a great opportunity 12 minutes from time when Jacob Peterson sent in a very dangerous ball into the box.  The ball bounced around but Burse played it well and dove to knock it out of bounds before any Rapids players could get to it.

Colorado has had a helluva time getting a win lately in this soccer betting game and with the loss fell off the back three more points in the standings.  With three teams ahead of Colorado in the standings and a 16-point gap opened up between the team and the division leader, their playoff chances look slim.

Dallas on the other hand looks very sharp according to the online betting soccer followers, and with a soccer betting game in hand, and just one point behind Houston, it has a good shot at winning the very competitive soccer betting Western Division.
