MON -150 O/U 3.5
Montreal Impact did a great job in their last match and will now look to build on that when they will host DC United on Saturday. DC United are coming off a bad losing streak and have been struggling mightily over the past weeks.
DC United (10-10-9) crashed and burned in their away match against Philadelphia, as their opponents were already leading by three goals at the 36th minute, resulting in a 1-3 loss. That was their third in succession and DC United have now won just one of their last seven matches (1-5-1). They are sitting at the 5th spot of the Eastern Conference with 39 points, two behind the Red Bulls. They have been quite competitive on the road so far (4-6-4), but have now won just one of their last ten (1-6-3).
Montreal Impact (11-14-4) should be feeling grateful about their 1-2 home win over Vancouver. Their opponents took the lead, missed a penalty kick that would have given them a two goal lead, and equalized their own goal with an own goal. Montreal scored another to win by 1-2 but it was just their second win in their last five (2-2-1). They are now sitting at the 7th spot of the Eastern Conference with 37 points, two behind DC United. They have not been very solid at home so far (6-4-5) but they are undefeated in their last five matches in all competitions there (4-0-1).
Montreal have been better in this match-up in recent years, losing just once in the last nine matches against DC United (4-1-4). They have also been excellent when hosting DC United (4-1-3), going undefeated here since 2015 (2-0-2). Going with the home team to cover the spread here.
