Italian Serie A picks for Torino vs. Atalanta
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Atalanta vs. Torino picks from European soccer insider Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge about leagues and players most people don’t know exist, including most oddsmakers. He understands that oddsmakers don’t focus on obscure leagues, so Jon has become obsessed with learning everything possible about smaller leagues. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Torino vs. Atalanta, Eimer is backing over 2.5 goals at -140 odds. Recent matchups between these teams have been back-and-forth high-scoring affairs as the last five games have all eclipsed 2.5 total goals. They’ve already played twice within the last year with three goals scored in an August meeting and six combined goals scored in a February affair.
Of Atlanta’s 19 Serie A games, 14 have surpassed 2.5 total goals and its home games are even higher-scoring affairs. There have been 33 total goals in Serie A games at Gewiss Stadium or an average of 3.7 goals per contest. Meanwhile, Torino scored three goals the last time it played at Gewiss Stadium in February 2021. That is the most away goals the club scored in any contest throughout the entire 2021 calendar year.
Eimer recognizes the history between these two squads and confidently backs the over in what should be a shootout on Thursday.
“Atalanta and Torino have played each other five times since 2019,” Eimer told SportsLine. “These five games have included a staggering 27 goals combined … These two teams always seem to find the net against each other, and in classic Serie A fashion, more than once.”
