Money Line Pick
The New England Revolution edged out the Montreal Impact for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference last season. They will meet on opening day of the 2020 Major League Soccer season on Saturday in Montreal. Montreal took the 2019 head-to-head aggregate 3-0, winning the first match 3-0 before tying the second one 0-0. It was not enough to scrape into the playoffs, however, as the Impact finished with 41 points to the seventh-place Revolution’s 45. Saturday marks the MLS coaching debut of legendary French striker Thierry Henry, who has taken over the Impact. Early returns are positive, as his club did well to advance to round two of the CONCACAF Champions League earlier this month. New England midfielder Carles Gil is doubtful with a foot injury. MONTREAL should be the pick.
Over Under Pick
To say goals came at a premium in the pair of 2019 head-to-head matchups would be a gross understatement. It is likely that more of the same will continue, as neither side is expected to be among the top of the goal-scoring charts in 2020. Gil (10 goals, 13 assists) missing this match would make things tough on the Revolution. last Look for this one to stay UNDER the total.
