Inter Keep Building Momentum
Inter Milan took on a difficult Roma team on Sunday and the Nerazzurri came away with a 1-0 win to stay on top of the Serie A table. Simone Inzaghi’s side have been the most dominant team in the league so far and they’ve been stellar defensively. Their defense will face a tough test on Saturday when they head to Bergamo to take on Atalanta on Saturday. La Dea have one of the more dangerous attacks in the league but are susceptible to inconsistency. As two of Serie A’s best meet on Matchday 11, let’s check out the Atalanta vs Inter betting odds.
Atalanta vs Inter betting previews note that Inter Milan are unbeaten in their last 10 matches vs. La Dea, in all competitions. On last season’s Serie A schedule, Inter Milan picked up 3-2 wins both home and away. Inter also defeated Atalanta 1-0 in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal last season. Over the last ten meetings, the Nerazzurri hold a 5-5-0 record.
Scamacca Scores Brace for Atalanta
Empoli simply couldn’t contain Gianluca Scamacca on Monday evening. The former West Ham man scored twice, provided an assist and was the width of the crossbar away from a hat trick. La Dea picked up a 3-0 win in Tuscany, which marked their second straight league shutout. Now, the Atalanta vs Inter betting odds list the hosts as +220 underdogs.
Atalanta have compiled a 6-1-3 Serie A record so far in the 2023-24 season. They’ve had one of the best defensive records in the league up to this point and are currently in the top four. With a 2-1-0 record in the Europa League, La Dea are also on top of their group.
Although Scamacca has only scored in two matches this season, he leads Atalanta with four goals and over a goal per 90 minutes. Ederson, Teun Koopmeiners and Ademola Lookman have all added three Serie A goals. Notably, La Dea have kept five shutouts in their last six Serie A games.
Serie A Favorites Inter Grab Another Win
Inter Milan always looked the better side in Sunday’s match vs. Roma at the San Siro. Hakan Calhanoglu hit the crossbar early on and the Nerazzurri continued to look threatening. Inter’s Yann Sommer made an excellent save on a Bryan Cristante header in the second half. Not too long after, Federico Dimarco put in a cross that Marcus Thuram finished off to win the match. Through ten Serie A matches, Inter have gone 8-1-1 and lead second-placed Juventus by two points.
At +20, Simone Inzaghi’s Inter have the league’s best goal difference by far. Most Serie A predictions have Inter winning their first title since 2020-21. They’re currently even-money favorites to win the league and this could be a decent time for bettors to take their outrights. Nerazzurri players are currently dominating the Serie A leaderboard. Lautaro Martinez leads the league with 11 goals, no player has more assists than Thuram and Yann Sommer has kept a Serie A-best seven clean sheets.
Inter have conceded just five Serie A goals in ten matches and are also unbeaten in the Champions League so far. Juan Cuadrado and Marko Arnautovic are injured for the Nerazzurri but are not regular starters even when healthy. So, Inzaghi will be able to select another strong side for Saturday’s match.
