Inter Milan vs Lazio Odds and Spreads

 

No Time to Relax for Inter

As mentioned before, Inter Milan already won the Serie A title, which is why everybody started thinking that the Nerazzurri were going to relax, but that hasn’t been the case. Yes, they lost 1-0 to Sassuolo, but most recently, they crushed Frosinone 5-0.

Davide Frattesi, Marko Arnautovic, Tajon Buchanan, Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram were the scorers in such a comfortable victory. Here’s an uncommon fact; Inter Milan finished with five shots on goal, which means the Nerazzurri were 100 percent effective. That’s crazy for a team that already won the championship and most of its players are already thinking about the EURO and the Copa America.

Individually, it was a very special game for Buchanan, who became the first-ever Canadian player to score in the Serie A. As if that weren’t enough, it was a beautiful goal.

Another reason for the Nerazzurri to be heavily favored in the soccer odds at -160 is that they’re 14-3-1 at home. They haven’t lost since late September, but keep in mind that they haven’t won two in a row since early April.

Right now, Inter Milan has 92 points. Regarding the top five European Leagues, only Real Madrid has more with 93. Finishing atop the overall standings should be motivation enough for the Nerazzurri to go all-in.

Do-or-Die for Lazio

Last season, Lazio finished second in the Serie A standings. This season, the Biancocelesti is fighting to finish in the top six. That’s precisely why they can’t even afford to draw, because if they don’t win, the gap with AS Roma in the race for sixth place could increase up to four points.

Most recently, the Biancocelesti fulfilled their role as betting online favorites by defeating Empoli 2-0. Patricio Gabarron and Matias Vecino were the scorers. The defense also deserves some love because that was the third time in their last five games in which they managed to keep a clean sheet.

The bad news is that Lazio hasn’t been consistent when playing on the road. The Biancocelesti are 8-2-8 away and 2-1-2 in the last five. Most recently, they failed to defeat Monza, a team that’s not even in the top 10.

The good news is that we’re talking about a team in a must-win situation and offering a +400 price in the sportsbook to win straight up. You won’t find a more tempting underdog than the Biancocelesti, at least not in the Serie A.
