Atalanta vs Genoa
There is a general consensus that Atalanta are back to their free-scoring ways and it is a good one for punters that usually stake on Gian Piero Gasperini’s men.
Only three days ago in the Copa Italia, Atalanta romped to a 3-1 victory against Cagliari in the Coppa Italia.
It is assumed they have an easier task this weekend, at least on paper, facing 17th placed Genoa.
The Griffins have started playing better lately, snatching seven points out of the last four fixtures and getting out of the relegation zone.
The squad from Bergamo celebrated five victories in the last six matches across competitions, so their form overall is more than good.
Despite the fact visitors are awake now, bookies are still heavily backing Atalanta to win the match at low 1.23 odds on Betpay but a bold choice of the hosts winning the first half is much higher at 1.60 odds.
But for Genoa to stun Atalanta, a tempting 11.00 odds is on offer on Betpay but one must note Genoa have been extremely shy on the road, winning only one out of eight games and scoring only five goals.
14 out of the last 15 head to head meetings between Atalanta and Genoa have ended either with three goals plus, or both teams scoring at least one goal.
There was a total of 32 encounters so far. Atalanta won 14, while Griffins celebrated 10 victories.
Result at this venue in the previous season was 2-2 FT.
Atalanta are currently 5th on the table and potential win on Sunday could allow them to keep fighting for top 4 spots.
They are consistent when it comes to offense lately, so we see good value in backing home win & BTTS.
