Hellas Verona only needed four goals to take two wins and a draw in its last three matches, led by the efforts of forward Gianluca Caprari. After five scoreless starts from March 13 through April 18, he's scored in his last two matches to come within a goal of his career-high 13 in 2015-16 with Serie B side Pescara. Caprari will try to extend his scoring streak against AC Milan, which has allowed just one goal over its last eight matches. You can stream the match on Paramount+.

Italian Serie A picks for AC Milan vs. Verona
Before you tune in to Sunday's match, you need to see the Verona vs. AC Milan 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 is on a 30-11 roll on his soccer picks for SportsLine, returning over $1,400 for $100 bettors during that span.
For AC Milan vs. Verona, Eimer is backing AC Milan to win on the money line at -135 odds. Although it's conceivable that Verona could push into the top seven positions in the Italian Serie A standings, it isn't likely, and the Yellow and Blues essentially need to win out for a chance to do so. AC Milan is still within striking distance of rivals Inter Milan and controls its own destiny to recapture the top spot on the table.
The Rossoneri have been one of Serie A's most dangerous teams in their attack this season, with the second-most total touches on the ball in their opponents' penalty area at 993. Conversely, they have only allowed adversaries the fifth-fewest such touches with 652, as well as the fifth-fewest touches in their defensive third with 4,459. Furthermore, Milan has had the second-most successful defensive pressures in the league with 1,775. Milan center back Fikayo Tomori has been one of the best defenders in all of Serie A, with 42 tackles won and 54 blocked shots this year.
"One thing that has propelled [AC Milan] to so many victories this year is their absolute brick-wall of a defensive back line," Eimer told SportsLine. "Over the last 10 matches across all competitions, teams have failed to score against AC Milan in eight of them. AC Milan has also only conceded four times in its last 10 league matches."
