Montreal Impact v. DC United 8/25

24 Aug

I like dabbling with MLS picks, mainly cause I have an unsubstantiated notion that Vegas doesn’t know enough about American soccer, or maybe just the people betting on it have no clue what they’re doing.

Let’s see if I can prove myself wrong.

I’m taking Montreal Impact at -0.5 (+111). Main reasons: They’re on a 4 game win streak, have had 3 extra days rest than DC, are home, and are looking to not only get themselves in the playoffs but to knock DC out. DC had an ugly, ref-induced tie in Philly a week ago, then took it to Chicago at home and won 4-2. I think that got the tie out of their system and now play in Montreal in 3 days.

That fact that this has playoff implications makes me want to take the over (2.5, -125) but I haven’t been doing to well with those lately. I see this game being decided on who scores in the crucial 10 minutes post halftime but still have a feeling Montreal takes it. I’ll predict 3-1 Montreal to support the over.

Bet made on:

    Good call, as you saw I’m pretty much on the same page. Taking the over as you had considered what have done you good too.

    P.S. You’re right, the bookies don’t really seem to know what they are doing when it comes to the MLS. I’m seeing a lot of outrageous odds being offered.
