In other words, you can expect the second leg of the Europa League semifinal in Bergamo to be a close contest, even if the Las Vegas soccer odds clearly favor the home side at -135.

Atalanta vs Marseille Odds and Spreads

 

 

A Winning Formula: AScamacca’s UEL Player Prop Pick and Las Vegas Soccer Odds Strategy

The best part about the second leg between Atalanta and Marseille is that two of the tournament’s top five scorers will meet again. I’m talking about Marseille’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has scored 10 goals, and Atalanta’s Gianluca Scamacca, who has scored six goals. Only Scamacca scored in the first leg.

Yes, Aubameyang didn’t deliver at Velodrome, but keep in mind that he scored four goals in Marseille’s last seven games in all competitions. Overall, he has scored 25 goals, not bad for a 35-year-old veteran.

As for Scamacca, he returned to the Italian Serie A after failing to meet expectations in the English Premier League with West Ham United. The 25-year-old striker has scored 17 goals in all competitions. There’s also Ademola Lookman, who has scored 11 goals in all competitions.


Time to focus on the soccer lines that each of those players is offering as anytime goalscorer. Let’s start with the two that play for the home side. Scamacca is +160 while Lookman is +185. I would take Scamacca for two reasons: He’s at the top of the depth chart when it comes to strikers and he’s in charge of taking penalties. The first is important because if head coach Gian Piero Gasperini decided to play with only one striker up front, Scamacca will be the one.

As for Aubameyang, he’s offering a +210 price. Besides being in charge of taking penalties, he’s also constantly involved with free kicks, which increases his chances considerably.

Atalanta’s Rise: How They Justify Betting Odds According to Las Vegas Soccer Odds

Atalanta totally deserves to come in as the betting online favorites at -135. The Black and Blues only lost two of their last 15 games at home and when it comes to the continental tournament, they haven’t allowed more than one goal per game. The thing is, they conceded in each of their last three, and considering a ticket for the Grand Finale will be at stake, you can expect the visitors to go all-in when needed.

Speaking of the visitors, Marseille is +360 to win straight up. If you were looking for an underdog to include in your picks, the Olympians are a great option. After all, winning the UEL is all they’ve left. On the other hand, Atalanta can still win the Coppa Italia.

In the end, we’re set for a great match in which I have no doubt both will score, which is -125 in the sportsbook. As for the winner, according to the Las Vegas soccer odds, I think Atalanta will end up fulfilling its role as favorites but not without suffering.
