Will CF Montreal lose to an expansion club?
Despite their stellar seven-game unbeaten streak in Major League Soccer (MLS), CF Montreal are overlooked ahead of their Saturday duel against expansion side Charlotte FC.
According to the Mise-o-jeu + site, head coach Wilfried Nancy’s squad will lose on their first visit to North Carolina. The odds for a home club win were 2.20 Tuesday morning, compared to 3.10 for a Montreal win. A draw verdict was considered at 3.30.
In addition, the probabilities of seeing both teams hit the target are higher, according to the bookmakers. This scenario is quoted at 1.66, while a shutout made on one side or the other will be worth twice the initial bet to those who predicted everything accurately.
Also, when it comes to the final score, a 1-1 draw seems a very possible outcome, given the odds of 5.40. A 0 to 0 or 2 to 2 tie could win 12 times the bet.
In the Eastern Conference standings, CF sit third with 17 points, four more than their next rivals in eighth place. The weekend clash will be broadcast on one of the TVA Sports channels from 7 p.m. on Saturday.
