  • MLS value plays are up more than +19 units this season, and there are four more on the slate for Saturday night.
  • The marquee matchup features the league's best team, Atlanta United, hosting last season's MLS Cup winners, Toronto FC at 4 p.m. ET.

It’s another busy Saturday night in MLS with ten matches on the slate and plenty of betting value.

Last weekend’s value plays finished a solid 4-2 for +2.67 units, and we’ll look to continue the momentum before all of the major European leagues start up. After analyzing the betting market for tonight, I’ve picked out four value plays. Let’s take a look at the card.

Season Record: 39-43-2, +19.35 units, 24% ROI

Toronto FC at Atlanta United

Moneyline odds: Atlanta -152, Toronto FC +390, Draw +349
Total: 3.5 (u-120)
Time: 4 p.m. ET

This is a crucial match for Toronto FC to stay in the midst of the playoff race, as they’ve won two straight games and are getting healthier.

“We’re trending in the right direction, had our best half I think of probably the season in-league in the second half last game,” Toronto FC head coach Greg Vanney recently said. “I thought our rhythm came back, some of the swagger that we know of our group started to arrive again.”

Atlanta United have lost just once in their last eleven games and they lead the league in points (47) and wins (14). They also hosted the MLS All-Star game against Juventus on Wednesday night which was an overall success for the city and fan base.
