AC Milan: Without Mistake
We cashed another ticket at plus money with AC Milan involved as we backed them to win and under 4½ goals in the match at +120 and they managed to beat Verona 3-1 on the road.
AC Milan took a huge step towards securing the Scudetto as they came from behind to beat Verona 3-1 at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi with Sandro Tonali scoring a brace while Alessandro Florenzi closed the scoreboard in the 87th minute of the match. After Inter’s comeback win against Empoli on Friday night it was an important display of character from the squad, who now need just four points from the last two games to win the league.
Head coach Stefano Pioli chose to make a couple of changes to his starting line-up from the game that beat Fiorentina as Rade Krunic got the nod as the playmaker and Alexis Saelemaekers was on the right-wing. AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli deserves immense praise for making his 4-2-3-1 an unpredictable system thanks to tactical intuitions.
It was the second time in the last three fixtures that Tonali provided a key contribution with three goals scored in three games after his late winner secured vital points against Lazio. The 22-year-old’s ability was known for some time before he joined Milan initially on loan from Brescia Calcio and then permanently last summer.
Milan needs more of the same at home to Atalanta and then away at Sassuolo while Inter has easy tasks of Cagliari away and Sampdoria at home after a midweek Coppa Italia final against Juventus. It’s difficult not to back AC Milan given their solidity at the back and consistency from the middle and up. That’s why we will back them once again to pick up the three points and include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Atalanta: Fighting for the European spots
Luis Muriel contributed a goal and an assist around Pasalic’s third goal, as Atalanta conquered Spezia despite conceding after some poor defending. Despite La Dea’s recent struggles, their squad has no shortage of quality, and Gasperini’s side will be aware that this marks an opportunity for a valuable three points. Atalanta should, in reality, have no difficulty playing at the same level as the leaders as they have the necessary weapons to do so.
If they are to do so it is most likely to come courtesy of Luis Muriel with the Colombian coming into his own in recent weeks with eight-goal contributions in his last four games. The forward may well be deployed further forward against AC Milan and why not find the back of the net once at least offer a nice assist.
The visitors have not managed to keep a clean sheet in Serie A in any of their last seven fixtures and we expect them to extend that backline poor run of form. All Toloi, Pezzella, and Ilicic are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players on the away team. Atalanta should try to end the season in style and a win against AC Milan will see them move one step close the representing Italy in the European competitions. If you’re soccer betting you should always look for the best value. Our sportsbook is offering you the chance to combine two markets for better odds.

AC Milan vs Atalanta Predictions
The hots enter this clash as heavy favorites being priced at -130 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at three.
AC Milan may have impressed in recent months, but they still have the capacity of stringing together a run of poor results or a bizarre defeat which will definitely put in jeopardy their title hopes. They enter this match full of confidence, they have a good record against Atalanta, and we expect them to add three more points to their season tally but we can’t back them at that price.
AC Milan is very unlucky because Atalanta is still fighting for the European spots so the visitors will play their best football. For now, we’re playing the goal line but one day before the game check for the updated props and go with both teams to score and over 2½ goals in the match.
