Bologna and Sampdoria are separated by just over a three-hour drive in Northern Italy. On Monday, the two clubs will meet in Italian Serie A for the 100th time. Both are comfortably above the relegation zone, with Bologna 12 points clear in 12th place, while Sampdoria is seven points clear in 16th. However, they would still love to put more distance between themselves and the bottom of the Italian Serie A table with a win on Monday over a familiar foe. You can stream all the action on Paramount+.

Kickoff from Renato Dall'Ara Stadium in Bologna, Italy, is set for 2:45 p.m. ET.

Italian Serie A picks for Sampordia vs. Bologna

Before you tune in to Monday'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 nearly 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 has also been on a roll with his best bets, going 17-9 in his last 26 soccer picks.

For Bologna vs. Sampdoria, Sutton is betting under 2.5 goals for a -135 payout. Both sides are in position to stay in Italy's top flight this season, but have looked content with their place in the table and struggled of late. Bologna has three draws and two losses in its last five matches, while Sampdoria has one win and four losses in its last five.

A relatively toothless attack has been a major issue for both clubs, with Bologna scoring just once in the aforementioned five matches and being held scoreless the last 407 minutes, while Sampdoria has just four goals in its last five games. Even with Sampdoria's leaky defense yielding 10 goals in five matches, it's unlikely that Bologna will be able to take advantage on a larger scale.
