This weekend is Montreal’s Major League Soccer home opener against the Chicago Fire. The Impact lost last weekend to the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, and they’re hoping for a better result this Saturday. So far over 50,000 tickets have been sold for this game. Officials are planning for over 60,000 which will break a record in Canada for the most attended soccer game ever!
The Montreal Impact also just signed striker Italian veteran Bernardo Corradi. Unfortunately he can’t play until his international transfer papers come in, so it’s unlikely that Corradi will take the field this weekend. He should be starting as soon as he’s cleared to play.
Impact fans will be rooting for their team, but the sportsbooks are giving the edge to the Chicago. Right now the Fire are slight road favorites to win this match. The odds are below.

Every gambler should be able to find at least 1 bet that interests them for this game. Of course if betting on these two teams doesn’t interest you, there are eight other matches to wager on this weekend.
Sunday’s featured match on NBC is between the Philadelphia Union and the Colorado Rapids. The Union lost their home opener to Portland this past Monday while the Rapids beat Columbus on the road so far this year. We don’t have the odds for this game yet, but we would be shocked if Colorado wasn’t decent favorites. We’re mentioning this game now, because it’s televised nationally and therefore it will be one of the most heavily bet game this weekend.
We’ll be back tomorrow with an update and odds for all of this weekend’s games.
Good Luck and thanks for reading.
