Montreal Impact are quickly developing into an MLS Cup contender. Tripping up at the final hurdle last season, Impact made it all the way to the conference finals before being ousted in devastating fashion by bitter rivals Toronto F.C. With a large and loud home following, Montreal are a formidable force when they play in the friendly confines of the Saputo Stadium. Impact lost talisman Didier Drogba in the offseason, but should have more than enoug to cope with the big man's loss.

Montreal Impact Betting Tips
Montreal played to their potential during the 2016 season, finishing fifth in Eastern Conference standings, three points ahead of New England, who failed to qualify for the postseason.
They played out of their skins in the playoffs, though, beating DC United and the Red Bulls on the way to the Eastern Conference Final. Nobody expected Impact to take down New York, who were one of the MLS favorites to win it all. And they accomplished large portions of the unthinkable without their talisman, as Drogba missed out some important fixtures due to an ailing back.
It just shows that anything in sports is possible when confidence is high. Montreal were pretty good at home, winning seven of 17 games. Their home record wasn't among the elite in the league, though, so be careful before blindly backing the Impact in home fixtures.
While Montreal weren't brilliant away from home, their four road wins ranked third best in the Eastern Conference. Usually equipped with a solid defense, Montreal allowed the fourth least goals - 53 - in the conference.
Montreal, even with Drogba, struggled to score goals. Those stats leads us to suggest favoring the under market in Impact games. Scratch beneat the surface to make sure it's the right bet and pay close attention to recent form, as confidence, like in any sport, is a pivotal indicator of potential success.
