Montreal’s impressive run of results came to an end at Nashville in midweek but they will hope to resume winning ways when hosting Real Salt Lake.
The visitors have gone five away games without a victory, picking up only two points and scoring just a couple of goals on those road trips.
Le CFM don’t keep many clean sheets, though, so 3.75 for a home win and both teams to score is our initial CF Montreal vs Real Salt Lake prediction.
CF Montreal Odds
Montreal were guilty of some sloppy defensive work when falling 2-0 behind at Nashville and could only respond with a fortuitous Kei Kamara goal.
Romell Quioto and Kamal Miller went close to finding an equaliser, though, and there was no disgrace in losing at a fired-up GEODIS Park.
Wilfried Nancy’s side had previously completed a hat-trick of wins and dropped just two points in seven outings, climbing up to third in the Eastern Conference.
Djordje Mihailovic has earned rave reviews for his performances and veteran front man Kamara now has 133 MLS goals to be tied for fourth in the all-time list.
Three of their recent victories have been by a 2-1 margin and CF Montreal vs Real Salt Lake odds.
Real Salt Lake Odds
Real Salt Lake are a solid fifth in the West thanks to some strong home form, with four of their five wins coming at Rio Tinto Stadium.
Last Sunday, they came from behind to beat Austin 2-1, although the visitors were down to 10 men before Maikel Chang and Andrew Brody struck.
Brody celebrated signing a contract extension by firing in an absolute stunner from the edge of the area with just three minutes remaining.
“It was a special, special moment, and a special, special week for myself and my family,” beamed the homegrown 27-year-old.
“The fans were really pushing us on, we knew we were up a man so we can kind of get after them a bit, try to keep that intensity high, never let them catch their breath.
“The big part was just us playing on the front foot, playing fast, trying to get balls in the box and make it difficult for them.”
RSL will benefit from a midweek rest, as there were signs of tiredness from both teams in that contest.
Their away record remains a worry, though, and 4.6 for Draw HT/Montreal FT completes our CF Montreal vs Real Salt Lake betting tips.
