Sassuolo is missing striker Gianluca Scamacca, who now plays for West Ham United. The Neroverdi are barely averaging one goal per game, which is why they’re dangerously close to the relegation zone, putting them in a must-win situation.
As for Lazio, the Biancocelesti don’t have any trouble scoring, but they’ve lost some ground in the title race, which is why they also come in a must-win situation. Ciro Immobile and company are the betting online favorites at +115.
Let’s check the latest Serie A odds, stats, injury reports, and Serie A lines for Sassuolo vs Lazio. We’ve plenty of Serie A betting odds for you to consider.
Sassuolo: Good Fight
Sassuolo is 0-1-4 in its last five games, but the Neroverdi put up a good fight in each one, losing by more than one goal only once. Most recently, they lost 2-1 to Fiorentina. The Neroverdi finished with 16 shots in total, one more than the home side, with Fiorentina scoring the winning goal in stoppage time.
Their last home game was against Sampdoria, which they also lost 2-1 after conceding twice in a three-minute span. That’s either a bad attitude or a lack of focus. The good news is that both can be fixed with hard work.
As you can imagine, the Neroverdi home record isn’t the best, 3-2-3, but they’ve been considerably better when playing at home. That’s why they’re offering a +220 price in the sportsbook to win straight up. That’s not bad for a team that’s sitting in 16th place.
Individually, you should keep an eye on Davide Frattesi and Domenico Berardi, who are trying to replace Scamacca. Frattesi has scored four goals, while Berardi has scored three. With them leading the way, you can expect Sassuolo to rely on the counterattack.
Lazio: Well Balanced
There’s no doubt that Ciro Immobile is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says Lazio. The veteran is a certified scorer with seven goals, only three less than Victor Osimhen from Napoli, the league’s top scorer.
The Biancocelesti also own a very good defensive unit, led by Alessio Romagnoli, that has allowed 15 goals in 17 games. Only Juventus and Napoli have allowed fewer, with seven and 13 goals.
Most recently, Lazio failed to fulfill its role as the soccer betting favorite against Empoli. The match finished 2-2 after Empoli scored twice in the last 10 minutes of the game. Felipe Anderson and Mattia Zaccagni scored for the Biancocelesti. The fact that four midfielders have scored three or more goals is another reason to consider wagering on Lazio. Immobile isn’t alone.
The visitors are offering a +115 price to win straight up. Considering they’re 4-4-2 when playing on the road, that’s a great deal. Plus, they scored in six of those games and finished with a clean sheet four times.

Sassuolo vs Lazio Picks & Prediction
Lazio is the better team, no doubt about it, but it seems like the break for the 2022 World Cup affected it too much. Even so, I expect it to return to the winning column, but not without suffering, just like it did when it visited Torino and Sampdoria, two very similar teams to Sassuolo.
In the end, the Biancocelesti at +115 is a deal you must include in your soccer picks, trusting that Immobile will save the day.
