Italian Serie A picks for Atalanta vs. Sampdoria

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. Gian Piero Gasperini's men have won the last three meetings against Sampdoria and the expert expects they will get the job done again this Saturday.

Sutton notes that Sampdoria has much easier competition in preseason play, while Atalanta was challenged by Newcastle and Valencia. Atalanta could also have added firepower on game day if newly-acquired winger Ademola Lookman is cleared to make his Serie A debut after being signed from RB Leipzig late in the offseason.

"Lookman scored eight goals in 42 appearances on loan at Leicester City 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."
