There is a template called AlternatingItemTemplate in Repeaters that you could use to set the background color.

Or... I'd try doing it in the repeaters item data bound event. See code.
  Protected Sub rpt_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterItemEventArgs) Handles rpt.ItemDataBound
    If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
      DirectCast(e.Item.FindControl("Row"), HtmlTableRow).BgColor = "silver"
    End If
  End Sub
