Matchday 1 of the CONCACAF Champions League continues tonight and the Montreal Impact offer solid odds to beat a San Jose side that has been brutal on the road.Bet today and take advantage of a sweet deal from William Hill where you can land a $100 betting bonus simply by opening a free account!
The Impact are tied for the best home record in all of Major League Soccer with a mark of 7-1-3 (W-L-T). Yet, they're coming off a 3-1 away loss to a horrible D.C. United squad on Saturday night and have only won once in their last seven matches.
Those are the sole reasons why they are being offered at evens (2.00) to win tonight's match.
Still, I very much like that value given Montreal's dominance at home coupled with San Jose's dismal road record of 1-8-2. The last time San Jose won on the road was close to two months ago.
With the CCL featuring three-team group stages, each home win is tremendously valuable and the Impact are expected to put out the majority of their starting eleven tonight, including a healthy Alessandro Nesta and their newly signed DP, Argentine midfielder Hernan Bernardello.
A Montreal double result is at 3.20 but with only two goals in its last four that may be pushing it.
The draw result is sitting at 3.30 right now over at William Hill, with the double draw result bringing that up to 5.50. The last time these teams played was in San Jose, which ended up 2-2.
I do like the both teams to score pick at 1.67, but with low value offered it would be better suited to add that to a parlay slip instead. San Jose has scored in three straight matches and five of its last six. Plus, Montreal has allowed 32 goals in its 21 MLS games this year, the fourth highest total in the league.
The over/under with Montreal used to crack the over quite a lot, but it is a bit of a crapshoot as of late which is why the odds are equal on both sides of the equation at 1.91. If you are going to pick here, lean towards the over. The last time they played at Saputo it cracked, when the Impact won 3-1.
Games at Saputo Stadium this season average three goals per match.
