MLS Parlay Picks for Saturday, July 8, 2023

MLS Saturday, July 8 Parlay Picks

Usually, I stick to two sides for my MLS Parlay of the Week, but I’m feeling so good about this week’s slate that I am going big with a three-team parlay that pays off at nearly 8-1. I am once again riding with nothing but home teams as I simply don’t trust road teams in the MLS given the travel most teams have to endure. My favorite plays are Minnesota United and the Los Angeles Galaxy, but I like the price on Columbus enough that I have thrown them in this parlay too.

The Columbus Crew have been one of the league’s best home teams so far this season. Columbus is 8-1-2 in 11 home games, and the Crew are hoping to use their dominance in Ohio’s capital to run down in-state rival FC Cincinnati for the top spot in the conference. The Crew are the highest-scoring team in the league, averaging two goals per game, and they should be able to break down New York City FC in the back with Lucas Zelarayan and Cucho leading the way. Zelarayan looks to be an MLS Best XI selection with eight goals and seven assists in 18 games, while Cucho is a solid set-up man as well with five goals and 10 assists. That has helped Christian Ramirez notch eight goals too.

Meanwhile, NYCFC might miss the postseason for the first time in franchise history. This attack has been toothless with just 23 goals in 22 games, and the club has just one road win to its credit all season. Richard Ledezma is trying to be the set-up man that the team needs in the middle of the pitch, but he is just 22 years old and needs more seasoning.

Teemu Pukki signed with Minnesota United FC as a Designated Player a little over a week ago, and the former Norwich City forward looks set to make his debut this weekend. Pukki has poured in the goals for Brondby and Norwich over the last decade, notching 142 goals in 328 appearances, and he will now look to become a goal scoring machine in the MLS. That should definitely kickstart a Minnesota attack that has netted just 21 goals in 24 games and has been dependent on a very good defense.

Austin FC is currently in position to make the postseason. They acquired Brandan Craig on a loan from Philadelphia to help out their defense, and he could make his debut for his new club this week.

Finally, we come to the real kicker. Adding the Los Angeles Galaxy to this parlay significantly bumps up the potential return, and I believe that the Galaxy are starting to turn a corner. They have recorded a result in six straight games against MLS foes, beating two teams and drawing four times.

As well as the Galaxy have played, this is also a bet against the Philadelphia Union. Philly has not been the same since goalkeeper Andre Blake left the team to represent Jamaica at the 2023 Gold Cup. Blake is a three-time MLS Goalkeeper of the Year award winner, and he won the award while being named to the MLS Best XI last year. His absence has left a big hole in the back, and veteran goalkeeper Joe Bendik has shown why he has been a backup since leaving Orlando City SC back in 2018.
