While Torino isn’t in the Serie A title race, the Granata are only five points behind Atalanta, the team sitting in sixth place. Finishing sixth would allow the club to qualify for the UEFA Conference League. For it, that would be like winning the scudetto.
As for Napoli, the Azzurri are very comfortable at the top of the standings. That’s one of the reasons for them to be heavily favored in the soccer lines, but thanks to the UEFA Champions League, they might not be at 100 percent.
Torino: Home Sweet Home
Last Sunday, Torino visited Lecce and won 2-0, with Wilfried Singo and Antonio Sanabria as the scorers. Torino was extremely effective since it only took two shots on goal. Plus, it lost possession with 44%.
There’s no doubt that it has struggled more when playing on the road. Torino currently sits in eighth place thanks to a 10-7-9 record. Six of those defeats were on the road. On the other hand, it only lost one of its last seven matches at home. During that span, it even defeated AC Milan.
Regardless of the result, Torino scored in six of its last seven games at Stadio Olimpico. It also finished with a clean sheet three times.
Torino is listes in the sportsbook at +400 odds to win on Sunday.
If you need a reason to bet on Torino, how about Sanabria? The Paraguayan is having a great season, enough to be the team’s top scorer with seven goals. That’s already a new personal best, but I can assure you he’s hungry for more.
Napoli: Beyond Serie A
Midweek, Napoli had no trouble defeating Frankfurt in the second leg of the UCL Round of 16, just like the soccer odds suggested all along. The Azzurri won 3-0, with Victor Osimhen as Man of the Match after scoring a brace. They won 5-0 on aggregate.
Regarding the Serie A, the Azzurri have lost only two games. Their most recent defeat was at home against Lazio. They bounced back from that by defeating Atalanta 2-0, with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Amir Rrahmani as the scorers.
Osimhen is the team’s top scorer with 19 goals, but they all contribute; that’s why they’ve had such success. Kvaratskhelia leads the league in assists with nine and has scored 11 goals. Elif Elmas has scored six goals, while Piotr Zielinski has six assists.
Defensively, we’re talking about the best team in the league after only conceding 16 goals in 26 matches. Napoli finished with a clean sheet in seven of its last eight games in all competitions. No wonder It’s heavily favored in the Las Vegas soccer odds at -130, even though it doesn’t have as much time as Torino to rest and prepare for the match.
