Verona vs Lazio – Lazio to win & Both teams to score
Monza vs Sampdoria – Sampdoria to score Over 1.5 team goals
Total Odds – 18/1
Verona vs Lazio
Hellas Verona have collected eight points from the last five Serie A matches, but they are still not even close to exiting the relegation zone. The Mastiffs are sitting under the red line with thirteen points from twenty games, having negative goal difference of -14. The most recent performances have been very solid. Battles against other relegation candidates Cremonese and Lecce were won with identical 2-0 result, while last weekend’s draw at Dacia Arena against Udinese is considered as a successful trip.
Things are not going to be that easy against Lazio though. The Sky Blues have been on fire lately, earning seven points from the last three league clashes. The best performance of the season was seen in Rome against AC Milan (4-0 FT). Visitors need points to stay in the top four race, and we see good value in adding the BTTS option on top of the Lazio win. The current odds are 33/10.
Monza vs Sampdoria
Hopes of Sampdoria’s fans gone up after opening the 2023 with a stunning 2-1 victory on the road against Sassuolo. Judging by the follow up performances, that victory was just a short-time flash. Squad from Genoa suffered four defeats in a row to Napoli, Empoli, Udinese and Atalanta. Situation in the standings is not looking good, having won only nine points so far. Offense has to step up and have better execution. Monday’s clash against Monza is a perfect opportunity to end the draught.
Monza are playing above expectations, sitting in the middle of the table and not being concerned about relegation at all. The most recent match in Torino against Juventus was spectacular, leaving the Old Lady empty-handed and getting away with a 2-0 win. Defending has been an issue though. Monza concedes close to 1.5 goals per match on average. If we take all competitions into consideration, they kept just one clean sheet in last five home outings. We see massive value in backing Sampdoria to score two goals or more on Monday night.
