MLS Betting Predictions for Philadelphia Union vs Montreal

The 2022 MLS runners-up Philadelphia lock horns with out-of-shape Montreal on the 4th of June at Subaru Park. The visitors seem like dead men walking ahead of matchday 17 but will Philly get the easy three points anticipated before the kick-off? Find out the answer in these Philadelphia Union vs Montreal betting tips.

Philadelphia Union/Philadelphia Union

There’s simply nothing good we can say about the visitors. Montreal have had a couple of decent games but that’s it. For the better part of the season, coach Hernan Losada’s boys were orbiting toward the bottom of the table in the Eastern Conference.

Meanwhile, Philly picked themselves up from the poor start of the season and are now crushing one opponent after the other.

Furthermore, our Philadelphia Union vs Montreal predictions also have the head-to-head statistics behind them. After all, the last 10 games between the two sides ended with four victories for Philadelphia Union, three draws, and three Montreal wins.

Julian Carranza to Score Anytime

If there’s one man who can make a difference for Philadelphia Union this season, it’s probably Julian Carranza. The 23-year-old Argentine has been proving his worth with each chance coach Jim Curtin gives him

Scoring seven in the 2023 MLS campaign is an accomplishment and a half but what singles the striker out is the fact that he’s also quite a creator. Julian Carranza supplied teammates with four assists and we’re sure that with an unstoppable juggernaut like Carranza on the pitch, there’s no chance our Philadelphia Union vs Montreal predictions will fail this week.

Philadelphia Union odds: -185 – 64.0%

Draw odds: +320 – 23.0%

Montreal odds: +500 – 13.0%

At a laughable 13.0%, Montreal’s alluring odds standing at +500 are simply not worth the immense risk you’d take if you go with Hernan Losada’s boys on this one. Philly are the 2022 MLS Cup finalists and as such are rightfully the expected winners with a shocking 64.0% win probability at -185. Even our ‘Philadephia/Philadelphia’ betting tip for this game has a decent 48.2% chance of success.

Philadelphia Union vs Montreal Lineups & Team News

Philadelphia Union

The 2022 MLS Cup finalists are giving it another whirl this season, and judging by the performances in May, we believe our Philadelphia Union vs Montreal predictions have a strong chance of success. Sure, coach Curtin’s boys didn’t exactly have the most impressive start to the season but we believe it was due to the CONCACAF Champions League participation. Juggling between two tournaments is never an easy task but now that that’s out of the way, we see nothing but the best from Daniel Gazdag and his colleagues.

Predicted lineup – Blake (GK), Glesnes, Lowe, Elliott, Wagner, Martinez, Flach, Gazdag, Mbaizo, Carranza & Uhre

Montreal

Coach Hernan Losada’s Montreal will somehow have to nullify the lethal Gazdag – Carranza duo in Philly’s attack if Montreal are to salvage anything from this brawl. Montreal did manage to rise above the bottom of the table after a solid run of games but we still believe the visitors don’t have what it takes to overcome the Philly challenge on the 4th of June. Especially, when you consider the fact that Losada’s boys even lost 2-1 to lackluster Red Bulls New York in their previous Major League Soccer away game.

Predicted lineup – Sirois (GK), Corbo, Waterman, Camacho, Lappalainen, Choiniere, Wanyama, Herrera, Duke, Offor & Ibrahim

Player to Watch: Daniel Gazdag

The 2023 Major League Soccer campaign is going to be another masterclass by Daniel Gazdag, it seems. With seven goals and four assists to his name, he provided coach Jim Curtin with 11 returns so far – the same numbers as partner-in-crime Julian Carranza.

However, our Philadelphia Union vs Montreal prediction recognizes Gazdag as the player to watch on Sunday due to his unbelievable consistency. He’s among the best players in the league not just this season but also the previous one.

Daniel Gazdag was robbed of the MLS top goalscorer award in the 2022 race as Austin’s Sebastian Druissi snatched the trophy underneath him in the last possible moment. Daniel Gazdag was a key cog in Philly’s monster of a team that reached the MLS Cup final. He scored 24 goals in 27 official matches averaging 0.65 goals per game. He’ll surely be among the top players on the 4th of June as well.
