Nashville SC vs CF Montreal Prediction
There’s little to go off from only one week of play, but when Week 1 is any indication, Nashville and Montreal may very well be an entertaining match at 2:00 pm EST Saturday in MLS Week 2.
Between the 2, their MLS Opening Weekend matches totaled ten objectives. That included a 4-0 Montreal win over Toronto and a 2-2 draw for Nashville with Cincinnati. Contemplating Nashville obliterated Cincinnati on the stats chart: pictures 31-7, pictures on objectives 13-2, corners 11-1 and almost 58-percent possession, two objectives allowed is flattering to Cincinnati.

In the meantime, Montreal, together with Seattle, had been the highest-scorers in Week 1 with 4 objectives alongside Seattle. Just one group scored thrice (LA Galaxy) and each different group tallied much less. Montreal did nonetheless permit two objectives to a Toronto facet lacking each their beginning strikers and in addition league-MVP Alejandro Pozuelo.
Final season these groups met as soon as, a 1-0 highway win for Nashville, however this yr I feel we may even see a extra wide-open match. I’d lean to the OVER or a Nashville win, however Nashville to attain at the very least twice can be my guess for this match.
Decide: Nashville Group Whole Over 1.5 (-148)

This was a matchup we noticed lots of in 2020, on a month-to-month foundation from July to November to be precise. Within the common season, LAFC gained 4-1 on the highway, earlier than Seattle gained back-to-back house dates 3-1 and 3-0. LAFC then gained at house 3-1 in October, earlier than Seattle had the final chuckle at house within the playoffs profitable 3-1. Total within the ten all-time conferences between these sides, at the very least three objectives have been scored seven instances.
Vela can be excited to hopefully get a full match this week, whereas Seattle appeared no worse for put on popping out of the preseason and dealing with a brand new 3-5-2 formation.
I anticipate objectives, and at this early stage, it’s exhausting to separate the 2. A scored draw at +325 odds would provide a powerful return, however each groups scoring and at the very least three objectives have traditionally been a protected guess.
Decide: Each Groups to Rating & Over 2.5 Targets (-150 at Bet365)

Nonetheless, they held 55.8-percent of the possession and didn’t concede till the 61′ minute, after which once more within the last moments of stoppage time.
