Torino's eleven Serie A games this season have featured 37 goals.

Torino and Cagliari will kick off the 12th round of Italian Serie A games and one will be shocked if they do not combine for over two and a half goals in Turin on Saturday.

Sometimes there are bets that are so obvious that you feel as though it is not worth highlighting them. Statistically, there is such an overwhelming case for backing over two and a half goals in the Italian Serie A match between Torino and Cagliari that you think that everyone knows what it is. But, clearly, not everyone is across the Italian Serie A data.

There have been 37 goals in Torino’s 11 Italian Serie A games, nine of which have gone over two and a half goals, including four out of five at home. Torino has had a lot of Italian Serie A shots but it has allowed more even despite occupying seven place on the competition ladder. There have been 43 goals in Cagliari’s 11 Italian Serie A matches and each and every single one of them has gone over two and a half goals, something that no other side can claim.

Odds of -167  are available with 188Bet about Torino, which ought to throw the kitchen sink at Cagliari in front of its own supporters, and the Red and Blues serving up over two and a half goals between them. Cagliari does not seem to care wherever it is playing at home or away; the Red and Blues have one strategy and that is to attack at all costs.

None of the last five Italian Serie A meetings between Torino and Cagliari has featured a clean sheet and four of them have gone over two and a half goals so there is a bit of historical support for one’s headline selection.

Also on Saturday, Napoli will host Lazio in a clash between the Italian Serie A teams ranked fifth and fourth after 11 rounds. One laid Napoli in its UEFA Champions League game at Besiktas on Tuesday and one cannot entertain backing the Partenopei at odds on to beat Lazio at home in Italian Serie A two days later even though Manolo Gabbiadini is free to line up at striker after serving his two-match suspension.

One’s gut feel is that Lazio will test Napoli but, sadly, one cannot pull the trigger on the White and Sky Blues because they trail the Partenopei 0-1-4 on one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, numbers that point to a fair difference between the sides. But one does think that Lazio will make a decent fist of its weekend Italian Serie A assignment and, therefore, backing both teams to score at odds of -161   makes one’s picks.

Napoli has scored in 16 consecutive Italian Serie A home matches, while Lazio under interim manager Simone Inzaghi has resulted the onion bag in nine of its 11 divisional games, including four of its five away matches.

Unlike Napoli, Sassuolo did not please oneself during the midweek UEFA tournament action, letting go of a 2-0 lead at home to Rapid Wien in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday. Sassuolo will back up versus Atalanta in Italian Serie A and, at the odds of +212  with BetVictor, one is willing to take a punt on the Black and Greens losing on Sunday.

Sassuolo has a lengthy list of absentees and, according to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, it trails Atalanta 1-1-3. That statistical results suggests that bookmakers should be affording more respect to Atalanta, which has won five and drawn one of its last six Italian Serie A game to put itself inside in the top half dozen.
