Lazio like to leave it late

Lazio vs. Sampdoria – Saturday January 18, Stadio Olimpico, Kick-off: 2pm

Watch live on Streaming

Simone Inzaghi’s men should be on track for a club record 11th consecutive Serie A victory, but that doesn’t mean Sampdoria will make it easy for them. Claudio Ranieri has solidified them defensively and the Biancocelesti momentum is showing signs of slowing lately, in performances if not results.

Lazio like to score late goals and Samp tend to struggle the more time goes on, so two Lazio goals in the second half represent enticing odds at 3/1.

Best bet for Lazio vs. Sampdoria: Two or more Lazio second half goals at 3/1 with William Hill

Toro come tearing out the blocks

Sassuolo vs. Torino – Saturday January 18, Mapei Stadium, Kick-off: 5pm

Sassuolo are on a run of three consecutive defeats, while Torino are frankly riding their luck after some very sluggish recent outings, which still managed to earn back-to-back victories. Without suspended Domenico Berardi, the hosts are robbed of so much of their creativity and confidence.

The market that interests us in this game is the timing of the first goal. Nobody has conceded more in the opening 15 minutes this season than Sassuolo (six goals), while during the same period Torino found the net on five occasions. Toro tend to come flying out the blocks and then rest on those laurels, this should be no different.

Best bet for Sassuolo vs. Torino: Time of first Torino goal 1st to 15th minute at 4/1 with William Hill

Lautaro Martinez starts strong

Lecce vs. Inter – Sunday January 19, Stadio Via del Mare, Kick-off: 2pm

Inter dropped crucial points in the Scudetto race during their 1-1 draw with Atalanta, and were fortunate not to lose, but Lecce represent a very different type of test. The Salentini have not won a single home match this season and that doesn’t look to change this weekend. The odds reflect that, so we look elsewhere at more interesting markets.

Romelu Lukaku is taking all the headlines at the moment, but Lautaro Martinez found the net in his last two Serie A games and was crucially rested midweek for the Coppa Italia. El Toro will be raring to go and eight of his 12 competitive goals this season were scored away from home.

Best bet for Lecce vs. Inter: Lautaro Martinez first scorer at 3/1 with William Hill
