Montreal vs New York City FC Predictions, Game Preview, Live Stream, Odds & Picks, July 30

Six Points Separate Eastern Conference Foes

Hot Streak at Stake

The Philadelphia Union rules the MLS Eastern Conference with 42 points. The Zolos are followed by reigning champions New York City FC, who are only one point behind. Considering that the Citizens have gone six straight games without losing, that’s not surprising.

On Saturday, New York City FC will visit CF Montreal. The Impact sits fourth and is starting to build its own streak. That’s why both are offering the exact same price at the latest soccer odds and soccer betting. In other words, we’re set for an epic battle.

Let’s check the latest MLS news, stats, injury reports, and MLS odds for TEAM1 vs TEAM2. We’ve plenty of MLS picks and predictions for you to consider.

CF Montreal Trusts Its Dynamic Duo

After suffering humiliating losses against the Los Angeles Galaxy (4-0) and Sporting KC (2-1), head coach Wilfried Nancy made some changes and CF Montreal managed to return to the winning column. In fact, they won their last two games.

First, they defeated Toronto FC 1-0 thanks to an own goal scored by Lukas MacNaughton. Keep in mind that the Impact played the last 10 minutes with one less player as Kamal Miller was sent off. Most recently, they visited DC United and won 2-1. Romell Quioto was named the Man of the Match after scoring both goals.

Quioto is one half of Montreal’s dynamic duo. The Honduran is the team’s top scorer with nine goals. Djordje Mihailovic is the other half. The American midfielder has scored seven goals. As if that wasn’t enough, Kei Kamara and Joaquin Torres are also having a great season with five assists each.

Regarding availability, there’s good and bad news. Miller will return after a one-game suspension, but Tomas Giraldo will undergo foot surgery. As a result, he’ll be unavailable for the remainder of the season.

The Impact is offering a +155 price in the sportsbook to win straight up. Curiously enough, they haven’t drawn even once when playing at home (6-0-4). Summing up, for better or worse, they always go all-in.

New York City FC: New Era

Last season, Valentin Castellanos won the MLS Golden Boot after scoring 19 goals. This season, he has scored 13 goals in 21 games. That’s simply insane. Unfortunately for the Citizens, Castellanos is moving to Spain to play for Girona, meaning they need to find a new lethal striker.

Heber Araujo is the main candidate to replace him. So far, the Brazilian has scored six goals. He’s followed by Talles Magno, who has scored five goals, and Thiago Andrade with four goals. If you’re a NYCFC fan, you better start looking for samba lessons.

Collectively, the Citizens haven’t lost in their last six games. That includes winning the Hudson River Derby and, most recently, defeating Inter Miami 2-0. Maximiliano Moralez and Araujo were the scorers. Defensively, that was the Citizens’ third clean sheet in a row.

That’s another reason to consider including the Citizens in your soccer picks. We’re talking about the top scoring team in the Eastern Conference with 41 goals. On the other hand, they’ve allowed 21 goals. Only Philadelphia has allowed less with 15.

The Citizens are also offering a +155 price. Right now, you won’t find a more tempting visitor to wager upon. They own a 2-1-0 record in their last three road games. During that span, they scored six goals and allowed four.

The last time they met in Montreal, the Impact won 2-1. Overall, you can expect a close game, enough to consider the under. Precisely, the total went under in six of their last 10 meetings.
