Do I need multiple returns?

I am setting up a 125g, which is predrilled with 2 overflows. Each overflow has 2 holes drilled at the bottom of the tank. I have set up 2 drain lines, each running directly to the sump. My question is, would you recommend having 2 return lines? If so, should I run a separate pump for each?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You could just use one pump and tee I off to the the 2 returns. I've also seen the bean animal method for a dual overflow using only one return. It really doesn't matter.
