Inter vs Sampdoria Best Bet

Sunday, May 22nd, 17:00 (UK Time)

Inter find themselves in a situation where even an eighth win from their last nine games may not be enough to retain the Scudetto. Simone Inzaghi’s men are dependent on rivals Milan slipping up in their match to stand any chance of spoiling the party.

On Sunday, Inter welcome lowly Sampdoria to the San Siro. Marco Giampaolo’s side has struggled away from home this season, losing 11 of their 18 matches. Samp have conceded at least two goals in four of their last six away games and have nothing to play for, raising questions over how much resistance they will put up.

The result, therefore, looks to be a formality, with it being a case of how many goals the ‘Nerazzurri’ will score. 

Inter will be aiming to start Sunday’s game quickly to put pressure on Milan, who will be playing simultaneously at the Mapei Stadium. This is something they are accustomed to doing, particularly at home. In five of their last six home matches in all competitions, Inter have scored two goals in the first half. 

With a significant goal threat all over the pitch and Lautaro Martinez in fine form, it’s difficult to envisage Inter not winning this game comfortably. A fast start is crucial for the home side, and I’m confident they will achieve that on Sunday. 

  • Selection: Inter over 1.5 first-half goals
  • Best Odds: 2.20 (Bet365)
  • Stakes: 8/10

Sassuolo vs Milan Best Bet

Sunday, May 22nd, 17:00 (UK Time)

After last Sunday’s excellent 2-0 victory over Atalanta, Milan require just one point from their final game to win the Scudetto. Stefano Pioli’s men will be more than confident they can achieve the desired result: they are on a run of five successive wins and have kept eight clean sheets in their last 10 Serie A matches. 

The game in question sees the current league leaders face a potentially tricky trip to Sassuolo. However, playing away from home for this crucial fixture won’t fluster a Milan side who have been superb on the road this season, winning 13 of their 18 away games.

Although Sassuolo’s 37 league matches this campaign have included a whopping 127 goals, matches involving Milan have been low-scoring as of late. Three of Milan’s last 13 games have featured over 2.5 goals, whilst just three of their games in 2022 have seen over 3.5 goals.

Given that Milan can’t afford to lose this match, I’m expecting a solid performance from the away side to nullify the attacking threat of Sassuolo. Alessio Dionisi’s side will undoubtedly offer plenty of chances to Milan, and I’m confident the ‘Rossoneri’ will grab the victory to secure their first Serie A title in 11 years.

  • Selection: Milan win and under 3.5 goals
  • Best Odds: 2.70 (William Hill)
  • Stakes: 8/10

Venezia vs Cagliari Best Bet

Sunday, May 22nd, 20:00 (UK Time)

Cagliari know that only a win will do if they have any chance of avoiding relegation to Serie B. However, it doesn’t look promising for a side that has only won three times on their travels this season. Despite this, Cagliari are as short as 1.70 to win on Sunday. Therefore, I will be avoiding any match market bets for this game.

Instead, goals appears to be the more sensible play, especially with Venezia’s home record. Venezia have conceded 38 goals at home this campaign, but they also have a habit of finding the net themselves. As a result, both teams have scored in 13 of their 18 home matches. Furthermore, 10 of these 18 games have featured over 2.5 goals, with both outcomes occurring together in 50% of games at the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo.

Cagliari have a similarly dreadful defensive record away from home, keeping just one clean sheet on the road this season. The ‘Rossoblu’ haven’t been prolific in their 18 away games, scoring just 14 goals. Nevertheless, given Cagliari have to win on Sunday, I’m expecting an open game with plenty of opportunities.

With both teams weak defensively, it promises to be an entertaining match to help decide matters at the bottom of Serie A. 

  • Selection: Both teams to score & over 2.5 goals
  • Best Odds: 2.10 (Bet365)
  • Stakes: 8/10
