An avid Arsenal fan, I have been writing about soccer for several years and am particularly interested in Major League Soccer, the German Bundesliga and Spain's La Liga.

The MLS got underway last week with all but one team — Real Salt Lake — starting their campaigns, and the season continues with 11 Saturday encounters sandwiched between matches on Friday and Sunday.

Let’s take a look at our four-game parlay for Saturday.

Nashville vs. Montreal over 3.5 total goals (+200)

New England ML (-200)

Philadelphia ML (+112)

Colorado ML (-134)

Parlay odds: +1581

Nashville vs. Montreal over 3.5 total goals (+200)

Montreal Impact made a great start to the new MLS season, winning 4-2 against a Toronto team starting life without Greg Vanney, and more goals could be on the cards when they travel to Nashville this weekend.

The Canadians saw a total of 76 goals in their 23 Eastern Conference fixtures in 2020 and their tally of 43 goals conceded was the highest in the division.

Their offense, however, looked sharp last week with Mason Toye, Romell Quioto, and Dorde Mihailovic all scoring against Toronto.

Nashville, meanwhile, showed their strengths and weaknesses against Cincinnati on the opening weekend, letting in two goals after only 12 minutes but fighting back with 31 shots, 13 of which were on target.

They managed to salvage a 2-2 tie from that contest and given how both teams started the season, a bet on over 3.5 goals looks interesting.

New England Revolution to beat DC United (-200)

New England showed what they are capable of offensively during the off-season with a 4-1 friendly win over LA Galaxy and a 3-3 tie with LAFC and they can impress up top against DC United.

The Revolution were held to a 2-2 draw by Chicago Fire on the opening weekend but showed great determination to fight back from 2-0 down in that contest and confidence should be on their side going into this weekend’s match.

DC United started the new season with victory over New York City but they were arguably outplayed in that game and they struggled away from home last season, losing six of their 11 matches on the road.

Philadelphia to beat Inter Miami (+112)

Philadelphia Union won their first-ever Supporters’ Shield title last year, finishing with a 14-5-4 record from their 23 matches in the Eastern Conference, and they go in search of their first MLS win of 2021 against Inter Miami this weekend.

Union started the 2021 season with a respectable 0-0 tie with Columbus Crew, who won the MLS Cup last year and are strongly fancied to do so again this season.

As well as keeping the Crew quiet, Philadelphia managed 15 shots of their own and will be expecting good performances from Kacper Przybylko as the season goes on. Take them to beat Inter Miami, whose defense fell apart in their opening weekend loss to LA Galaxy.

Colorado to beat Austin (-134)

This season’s expansion team Austin endured a baptism of fire in their first MLS match last week, losing 2-0 and conceding 24 shots against 2019 Supporters’ Shield champions Los Angeles FC.

And it won’t get any easier for the Texas side against Colorado Rapids, who finished a respectable fifth in the Western Conference last year.

The Rapids began their season with a 0-0 tie against FC Dallas, defending well on that occasion, but the likes of offensive player Diego Rubio and Andre Shinyashiki should have enough to help them to a win this time around.
