Before you tune in to Saturday's match, you need to see the Italian Serie A picks from soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for more than five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. Sutton also has been on a roll with his Serie A best bets since the start of 2022, going 36-20 in his last 56 picks, returning more than $1,300 for $100 bettors.
For Sampdoria vs. Atalanta, Sutton is picking Atalanta to win. The visitors have won the last three meetings between these two sides dating back to February of 2021, and the expert believes history will repeat itself at Luigi Ferraris Stadium this weekend.
Sutton believes Atalanta has too much firepower for Sampdoria to contain, especially since they added from in the offseason. The winger hasn't suited up for Atalanta yet, but it is already expected his dynamic style of play will be a welcome addition.
"Lookman scored eight goals in 42 appearances on loan at last season, and his pace could cause fits for Sampdoria's back line if he's fit to play," Sutton told SportsLine. "If not, Atalanta's attack will still look to break down a Sampdoria defense that conceded 63 goals a season ago."'
