Austin FC vs CF Montreal Prediction, Match Preview, Live Stream, Odds and Picks

Both Lost MLS Season Opener

Major League Soccer began last week with a couple of surprises, including Austin FC losing against the latest expansion team despite being the MLS betting favorite. On the other hand, CF Montreal failed to beat a rebuilding team. Austin FC is the favorite for this match, but the Montreal Impact have won eight of their last 10 games on the road.

Let’s check the latest MLS news, stats, injury reports, and MLS lines for Austin FC vs CF Montreal. We’ve got plenty of MLS picks  and soccer beting for you to consider.

Driussi Off to a Good Start

The match between Austin FC and St. Louis City SC was a rollercoaster of emotions that ended 3-2. Timothy Ryan Parker scored the opener for the visitors, while Sebastian Driussi scored the equalizer for the home side right before halftime.

Driussi finished as the runner-up in the Golden Boot race last season with 22 goals. In other words, he started this campaign on the right foot to dethrone Hany Mukhtar. Plus, he has scored in five straight games and 10 of his last 11 home matches, totaling 13 goals in those games.

Austin FC managed to turn things around in the second half thanks to Jon Gallagher, but Jared Stroud evened things only six minutes later. Joao Klauss scored the winning goal four minutes before the end. Good thing we advise you to include the over in your betting online ticket.

Austin FC is offering a +110 price in the sportsbook on Saturday’s match to win straight up, a good price considering it only lost two of its last 10 games at Q2 Stadium.

CF Montreal: Talent Is There

CF Montreal suffered a 2-0 defeat in Florida against Inter Miami last week. The club won possession with 56% but couldn’t prevent Serhiy Kryvtsov and Shanyder Borgelin from scoring.

No team wants to start the season losing, but Impact has enough talent to bounce back. Last season, they finished second in the Eastern Conference, scoring 63 goals. Only the Philadelphia Union scored more with 72.

We’re talking about a team with a strong offensive mindset, attempting all 14 of its shots against Miami inside the box. The attacking unit is led by Romell Quioto, who last season scored 15 goals.

Defensively, let’s not forget Montreal signed Aaron Herrera, one of the best right-backs in the league. Once he’s fully adapted, the defense will be as good as the offense.

CF Montreal is offering a +240 price on MLS lines for Saturday’s contest.

Austin vs Montreal Head-to-Head

This will be the second meeting between Austin FC and CF Montreal, with Austin taking the first match last June despite not having the Las Vegas odds on their side. The club won 1-0 with Maxi Urruti as the scorer and managed to get the three points despite playing the entire second half with one less player after Daniel Pereira was sent off.

The Impact took revenge a couple of months later, kind of. They got their first victory ever in Texas by defeating the Houston Dynamo 3-2.

Austin vs Montreal Picks and Prediction

I expect a back-and-forth battle in Texas, enough for the total to go over 2½ goals, which according to the latest MLS odds, is offering a -140 price. However, Austin FC playing at home and offering a +110 price is too good a deal not to take. Los Verdes also had an amazing 2022 season, they even scored more goals than CF Montreal, and they’re determined to bounce back.

The Austin FC is listed at +110 in our Vegas MLS lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Austin FC, you have a chance to win $110. The Montreal is +240, offering a chance to win $240 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Austin FCa a 47.62% chance to win, with Montreal at 29.41%.
