Top Sporting KC vs Montreal Predictions & Betting Tips

It’s time for the battle of the underdogs in MLS with Sporting KC hosting Montreal on the 30th of April at Children’s Mercy Park. The Cannucks’ manager doesn’t have long to revel over the success against New York Red Bulls as Sporting KC are eager to get much-needed three points. Find out if they’ll succeed in our Sporting KC vs Montreal predictions.

Over 1.5 Montreal Goals

Before we hit the ground running, let’s just say that no one expected Hernan Losada’s boys to defeat the Bulls last week, right? Nevertheless, with two goals under their belt, Montreal’s players earned the three points at Saputo Stadium in a match that could’ve gone either way.

The head-to-head record isn’t in favor of our Sporting KC vs Montreal prediction at all as only 20% of the last 10 games ended with two or more Montreal goals but that’s OK as we’d like to beat the odds this week.

Draw or Montreal

Montreal are on the rise these days. How else would you call it when you know coach Hernan Losada’s side just recently thrashed New York Red Bulls 2-0? Gerhard Struber’s boys were left shellshocked last week when Montreal’s superb finishing got the job done and the much-needed three points were acquired.

Everyone pegs Sporting KC as favorites ahead of Sunday’s clash and that sort of pressure can get into a player’s head easily. Coach Peter Vermes’ boys will have the pressure to succeed but this will make them susceptible to errors at the back which Montreal’s players must exploit.

Sporting KC odds: -105 – 51.0%

Draw odds: +265 – 26.0%

Montreal odds: +285 – 23.0%

Even after the 2-0 success over the Bulls last week, Montreal remain underdogs in their MLS games with a 23.0% chance of defeating Sporting KC. The home team has the advantage and should emerge victoriously on the last day of April as they are the bookies’ expected winners with a sturdy 51.0% win probability.

Sporting KC vs Montreal Lineups & Team News

Sporting KC

The only team that has fewer points in MLS than Montreal this season is Sporting Kansas City. Coach Peter Vermes’ job stability isn’t what it once used to be as his players failed to make chances pay too often for the board’s liking this season. Sporting Kansas City have yet to record their first 2023 win but we aren’t sure they’ll cope with the pressure on Sunday.

Predicted lineup – Melia (GK), Ndenbe, Castellanos, Rosero, Zusi, Espinoza, Walter, Thommy, Salloi, Russell & Pulido

Montreal

You already heard this in our Sporting KC vs Montreal prediction above but we can’t stress enough just how crucial the 2-0 win over the Bulls last week was for Hernan Losada’s boys. They were in a dark place ahead of that clash as the looming shadow of their rivals was starting to envelop their dreams of something memorable this season. However, with a surprise 2-0 win comes confidence and we’re sure our tips will become successful now that Hernan Losada’s players believe in themselves.

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

Player to Watch: Mathieu Choiniere

Last week’s MLS brawl versus the Bulls had the most unlikely hero. It was none other than Mathieu Choiniere who, despite all odds, bagged the second goal for coach Hernan Losada’s side. Or the first one, if you don’t count the misfortunate Andres Reyes own goal in the first half of the game.

The right winger is a key part of this Sporting KC vs Montreal prediction and we’re sure that Hernan Losada will count on him on Sunday. Mathieu Choiniere will have to pick up the slack in the midfield as his partner in crime, Ilias Iliadis earned himself a red card versus the Bulls, as you probably remember.
