Italian Serie A picks for Empoli vs. AC Milan

Before you tune in to Saturday's match, you need to see the AC Milan vs. Empoli picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. He is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.

For Empoli vs. AC Milan, Eimer is backing both teams to score at -105 odds. Considering the last meeting between the two clubs ended with a 4-2 win for Milan, they've already proven capable of winning this bet once this season. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has missed the last seven matches with an Achilles injury, should be a factor after getting on the field for the first time since his injury in Milan's win over Napoli last Sunday.

Empoli has failed to score in three of their last five matches, but forward Andrea Pinamonti has been creating opportunities in the attack. In his last six starts, he has two goals and 12 total shots. He scored one of the goals against AC Milan on a penalty in the reverse fixture as well, so he should come in confident.

"[Milan] managed to get 11 points over their last five games, but two of those were draws against a struggling Udinese and an even worse off Sampdoria team, both currently doing worse than Empoli," Eimer told SportsLine. "The return of Ibrahimovic and Giroud should provide significant support to this roster, whose only goal this year should be to finish off the table in first."
