An Atalanta win here could have the gap down to just three points at the top of Serie A with a few matches to go.
Atalanta have been great value all season, they’ve scored 94 goals over their 34 league matches so far and will surely break the 100 mark before the season ends on August 2nd. Atalanta have been great since the restart, winning seven and drawing two – indeed they’ve lost just two matches since the turn of the year, that’s 20 matches and both of those defeats were in January.
14 from 17 home league matches have seen Over 2.5 goals and three from five matches between the pair here have also seen Overs occurring. 12 out of 17 away Serie A matches for Bologna have also seen Overs landing.

Sporting cannot catch Benfica above them in second, but a loss here could see fourth placed Braga make a grab for the only Europa League Group Stage place with just one game to go after this round of matches.
Setubal, on the other hand, are fighting for their Primeira Liga survival; a draw would get them out of the relegation zone and a win might just be enough to see them survive.
It’s quite unlikely though, Setubal have beaten Sporting just once away from home since 2010, a run of 11 matches that has seen them lose 10 from 11. The market prices reflect this fact.
Sporting have kept five out of six Clean Sheets at home of late, and have kept three over their three most recent home and away games.
Setubal have scored at least one against them in five out of five recent matches between the pair in all competitions though and, as said above, are playing for their skins here – scoring in three of their three most recent matches.
Both Teams To Score has landed in five out of 10 recent matches between the pair at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.
Of course, the battle for the league title will grab the headlines, but there’s an out-and-out dogfight going on from fifth to seventh for the final European football places.
A win for Milan will lift them from seventh to fifth, putting Roma and Napoli behind them and should the home side win, they’re back in the mix and will be just five points behind Milan in seventh.
Milan are the form side in the league though, winning four and drawing one of their five most recent matches. Sassuolo aren’t bad though, they’ve won three and drawn two over their five most recent Serie A matches. Sassuolo have scored 12 and conceded eight, while Milan have scored 17 and conceded six over those five matches.
Over 2.5 goals has landed in five of previous Sassuolo matches and in four out of five previous home matches. Overs has also landed in the last five Milan matches and also in four out of five recent away matches.
We could go with a simple Overs bet here, but let’s sweeten the deal by making it BTTS & Over 2.5 goals, a bet that would have landed in four out of five previous home Sassuolo matches and also in four out of five recent away Milan matches.
