Torino vs Lazio is the 15:00 (local time) kick-off in Sunday’s Serie A action; with neither side having anything to play for but pride. This, therefore, makes it a difficult game to bet on – with nothing really at stake and thus an unpredictable tie. However, TheLaziali is on hand to help you make your picks ahead of the game, breaking down the statistics as well as looking at the predicted line-ups and how this could influence the game.
To start with, the odds for Torino to win are 2.25, a draw is priced at 3.80 and Lazio to win is a 2.87 odds bet. From our full match preview, we have predicted this match to be a draw and, therefore, a value bet at 3.80 would look decent for a smaller stake. However, the odds for the ‘Torino or Draw’ double chance stand at 1.42 and could represent a safer bet. Torino have won three of their last 5 home games but, before now, have had something to play for and therefore the ‘end of season’ feel could suit the draw. Lazio, meanwhile, have won their last three away games on the trot but again, like Torino, have nothing to play for today except pride.
Torino vs Lazio: Predicted Line-ups
Torino (3-4-2-1): Sirigu; Izzo, Nkoulou, Bremer; De Silvestri, Meite, Rincon, Ansaldi; Baselli, Falque; Belotti
Lazio (3-5-1-1): Proto; Bastos, Acerbi, Radu; Romulo, Parolo, Badelj, Jordao, Lulic; Cataldi; Immobile
From the predicted line-ups, we can see that Torino are approaching the game with a near full-strength squad, whilst Simone Inzaghi is set to experiment more with his. Bruno Jordao, Milan Badelj and Danilo Cataldi are not regular starters; with Cataldi playing at the advanced attacking midfield role rather than his usual central midfield position. This is another reason to favour the Torino Double Chance as a disorganised Lazio could prove decisive in the result.
Torino have failed to score in just 11.11% of all their home games this season, whilst Lazio have failed to score in just over 22% of their away fixtures. In addition to this, Torino have kept a clean sheet in 38% of their home games whilst Lazio have conceded no goals in 27.78% of their away matches. A ‘both teams to score’ bet is likely a good shot and with odds at just 1.50, the bookies clearly know this. The final game atmosphere should make both teams put a lot on the line for an attractive game and we should see plenty of goals, making a smaller stake bet on over 3.5 goals at 2.30 a good shout.
Finally, both teams love a corner, with Lazio averaging just over 5 corners each away match whilst Torino record around 6 per match at home. Therefore, over 9 match corners at 1.50 is a safe bet, with over 10 at 1.83 a bit riskier and over 11 at 2.30 for the smaller stakes. The attacking intensity of this game should suit corners quite well and odds on over 13 corners is a remarkable 4.33 – could be worth a long shot.
