Montreal Impact vs Toronto Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and prediction

Our tipster thinks that Remi Garde's hosts will have too much for their fellow Canadians when these teams go head-to-head in MLS action on Saturday

Canadian rivals Montreal Impact and Toronto go head-to-head in MLS action on Saturday night.

Remi Garde's men are still targeting top spot in the Eastern Conference. Montreal's chances of achieving that ambition, though, were dented by defeat against Minnesota United last weekend.

Latest odds

Saturday's hosts are chalked up as 7/5 (2.40) favourites with 888Sport to return to winning ways this weekend.

Toronto need a positive result as they face a fight to qualify for the play-offs and Greg Vanney's men are available at 7/4 (2.75) to bag a vital victory at Stade Saputo. The odds compilers offer 43/20 (3.15) that this match ends in stalemate.

Team news

Anthony Jackson-Hamel scored inside 60 seconds in the defeat against Minnesota last weekend. The Canadian striker may well be rewarded for his efforts with another starting spot this weekend.

With five goals in nine MLS appearances thus far, US international Jozy Altidore is a key man for Toronto. The 29-year-old could return to action for his club this weekend following his participation in his country's Gold Cup campaign.

Preview

Toronto have picked up just two points from their last six MLS matches on the road whilst Montreal have scored at least twice in four of their last five home matches. There could, therefore, be more away-day misery in store for Vanney's side this weekend.

As such, 888Sport offer 11/10 (2.10) that Montreal score two or more goals in this game. The hosts can be backed at 19/5 (4.80) to win by at least two clear goals against their fellow Canadians.

Prediction

Toronto's troubles on the road this season are not easy to overlook. The possible return of Altidore should certainly strengthen Vanney's charges but Garde's men are enjoying a fine season and will be desperate to atone for last weekend's disappointing defeat.

Montreal have been, by far, the best Canadian team in MLS this term and Saturday's showdown represents an opportunity for the hosts to underline those credentials. Therefore, 888Sport's 7/5 (2.40) quote for Garde's men to win could well provide punters with a path to profit this weekend.
