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.

Following the MLS-Liga MX All-Stars contest in midweek, normal action resumes in the USA’s elite soccer division this week with New England Revolution and Seattle Sounders setting the pace in the Eastern and Western Conferences respectively.

Here is a look at our four-game parlay for Saturday’s games.

Over 2.5 goals in Atlanta v Nashville (+100)
New York Red Bulls ML (+115)
New England ML (+310)
Over 2.5 goals in DC United v Philadelphia (-105)
Parlay odds: +2893

Over 2.5 goals in Atlanta v Nashville (+100), 3:30pm ET 

Only five points separate Eastern Conference surprise package Nashville and Atlanta United in the standings this season and it is hard to settle on a result when they clash at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

But goals look likely with both teams playing positive soccer and a wager on over 2.5 goals could be the way to play it.

Nashville scored five against DC United recently and their matches are featuring an average of 2.6 goals per game this season, while Atlanta has seen at least three goals in four of their last six matches. The reverse fixture in July finished 2-2 and another high-scoring clash is expected.

New York Red Bulls to beat Chicago Fire (+115), 6pm ET

The New York Red Bulls are not exactly flying in the MLS Eastern Conference but they enjoyed a confidence-boosting 1-0 win over Columbus Crew last time out, and they can build on that by beating Chicago.

The Red Bulls have won only six games all season but the Fire have lost 11 of their 21 contests and have suffered back-to-back away losses against Floridian duo Orlando City and Inter Miami. They are worth opposing once again.

New England Revolution to beat New York City (+310), 7:30pm ET

New York City is well on course for a playoff berth in the MLS Eastern Conference and put up a fight against UNAM in the Leagues Cup quarter-finals recently, and they are a tough nut to crack.

But if any MLS side can get the better of the Big Apple club it is the New England Revolution, who are top of their conference with 15 wins, three losses, and four ties from their 22 matches this season.

They may be on the road for this one but they have won six of their 11 away games in 2021 and also won away to New York City 3-2 as recently as June.

Over 2.5 goals in DC United v Philadelphia (-105), 8pm ET

Philadelphia Union and DC United are both in playoff contention in MLS and could be tough to separate when they lock horns at Audi Field in Washington. Therefore, a bet on goals could be the best punting approach to this one.

In their last five games, DC United have seen a total of 24 goals, with themselves netting 11 times, while their MLS matches have averaged three goals per game this term.

Philadelphia, meanwhile, has seen over 2.5 goals in two of their last four MLS assignments and that could again be the best bet.
