  • We have another Major League Soccer slate on Saturday's card, with several intriguing matches taking place across North America.
  • Analyst Brett Pund has targeted two matches on the docket that he's putting in a two-leg parlay, including the Columbus vs. New England clash.
  • Check out below where he has landed on the games and what kind of price we're getting on the wager.

Goals are always on the menu in Major League Soccer, so I’ve picked out New England’s trip to Columbus and Toronto FC hosting Charlotte FC as a great pair of matches for my best bets and  two-leg parlay on Saturday’s busy docket.

Columbus is riding an eight-game unbeaten run coming into the weekend, while New England has fallen in the table after failing to pick up just one win in its last four contests.

Meanwhile, Toronto should see the debuts of two of the more exciting signings of the summer, which would come against an expansion Charlotte side that struggles to defend away from home.

That said, these are two huge matches in the Eastern Conference and all four teams need a result to keep their respective postseason hopes alive.

Columbus vs. New England Odds

Columbus Odds +110
New England Odds +225

New striker Cucho Hernández has appeared in three matches for the Crew. In those games, he has found the back of the net four times, while Columbus has averaged 2.33 goals per 90 minutes.

One of the league’s hottest forwards will come up against a Revolution defense that has allowed 22 goals on the road this season, which is tied for the fourth most in the league.

New England should find also find success offensively since Columbus has only earned three shutouts over the last 11 fixtures.

  • 90 — The percentage of both teams scoring in nine of New England’s 10 road matches this season, which is the highest percentage in MLS.
  • 1.83  — Away from home, the Revolution has allowed an average of 1.83 expected goals per game, according to fbref.com.

This should finally mark the debuts of Italian stars Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi this weekend, which Toronto desperately needs after the club’s recent struggles.

The duo will like their chances of netting a goal since Charlotte has only one clean sheet in 11 games on the road this season.

However, the visitors should also feel confident about getting on the scoresheet, with the Reds’ 19 home goals allowed tied for the most in the league during the campaign.

Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi will make their debuts for TFC this Saturday at home against Charlotte FC. @GalindoPW provides an in-depth breakdown of how they could fit into the team and what each can provide the Reds if deployed properly.https://t.co/XXXU3ORCZ3
