Montreal vs Orlando Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview
Neither side has been in good form of late, failing to win majority of their last 15 games. Due to their early season form, both sides are still on the brink of the playoffs and have the opportunity to make it back to back wins here. Below is our match preview, prediction and betting tips.
Game: Montreal Impact vs Orlando City
Venue: Stade Saputo
Kick off: Thursday 7thth September, 12.15am
Both of these sides are guilty of drawing one too many games this season, but both come in to this game on the back of good wins. Orlando are one of few teams to stop New York City in their tracks of late, whilst Montreal claimed a fantastic 1-0 win away to rivals Toronto.
It gives both teams the opportunity to build a run as we approach the playoff stage of the season. Thanks to results picked up earlier in the season both sides have the opportunity to make the playoffs still, with Montreal finding themselves six points clear.
Orlando are aiming to make the cut but will have overthrow one of DC United or Montreal. Philadelphia look uncatchable with a nine point lead, and that’s what the gap will be between Orlando and Montreal should the hosts win here. This is a huge six pointer.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips
Montreal are 3/4 favourites with Coral whilst a draw is best odds of 29/10 with Bet Victor and the away side are priced at 15/4 with Bet365 to cause what might be deemed as a surprise.
Orlando have drawn six of nine on the road and haven’t won since a surprise and undeserved 1-0 win against New York at the very start of the season. It would go on to be half of an unlikely double. Montreal drew their last game at home to DC which was an OK result for Orlando. DC are still within one point and Montreal haven’t quite pulled away.
Montreal have won six home games this season which is a drop off. They’d won eight in a row at one point last season and they’ve played in fits and starts. At present they look quite inconsistent and given Orlando’s reluctance to go away during a trio of 2-2 draws on the road, you shouldn’t count them out here.
Our free betting tip is Orlando City +0.5AH. Kreis’ men have been resilient over the past few weeks, even if they aren’t winning many games. Neither are Montreal as they’ve struggled to put teams away.
Win or lose we’ve seen a lot of goals in Montreal home games. Orlando can’t defend, but they also seem to like rising from the ashes. Both teams should get on the score sheet here and it could turn in to an open game. Our correct score prediction is 2-2 at odds of 13/1 with Bet Victor.
One man that’s ever-present for Orlando is Cyle Larin. He’s usually involved in everything good Orlando do and he is their top scorer once again this season. Back the big man to score at odds of 15/8 with Bet365.
