As many might know I'm a gigantic fan of Italian soccer. I love betting it and think you can find great edges in it. We are back this week from an international break. Going forward I'll be throwing out my bets and thoughts on matches I love. Lets get after it!
inter vs AC Milan: Nothing better than a Milan Derby. It's a shame this year we won't get fans here though. A truly great atmosphere. Both teams are teams that will give Juventus a run this year in the Serie A race and this game is important. AC Milan gets the great Zlatan Ibrahimovic back after a bout with COVID. Milan has had no trouble putting goals in but they have played 2 newly promoted teams and lowly Bologna. This is a major step up competitively against a really good team in Inter. Inter has scored TEN goals in 3 games. Romelo Lukaku has been awesome, but the issue has been the defense. They've been able to score but they can't keep goals out. They also may be without maestro Alexis Sanchez, the creator of them going forward in attack. I'm not too worried though as they have plenty of talent to plug in if someone's out. The issue Inter will have here is they are still without 2 of their defenders due to the virus. This should be a fun match with goals. PICK: OVER 2.5 goals (-138)
Bologna v Sassuolo: Two teams that are just minutes away from each other go at it Sunday. Sassuolo is one of my favorite teams to wager on. They score a ton of goals and play up and down, brilliant and creative football. They made me a ton last year and have been good to me early in the season. Through 3 games, they've scored 9 goals and are flying right now. They have so many attacking options up front and SIX different players have scored a goal already this season. For Bologna it's been a tougher time of it, they struggled last time out losing to lowly and newly promoted side Benevento and were unable to score. They also got a tough blow this week in international play when right winger Skov Olsen was injured. This will hurt the attack considerably. The defense has struggled back into last year as well. They have allowed a goal in 36 straight Serie A games. Yes you read that right. Just really ugly stuff for them at the back. Sassuolo is an auto bet to me until further notice. Great price here. PICK: Sassuolo to win (+150) vs Bologna & Sassuolo TT OVER 1.5 (-120)
Sassuolo is just magic going forward...free.
Enjoy the weekend and bet responsibly.
