Atalanta (4-3-2) has finished third in Serie A table the past four seasons, but it's only in seventh place through nine games this year. It will be hoping a win versus Sampdoria (2-3-4) helps boost it up the league table when the teams meet on Wednesday. Sampdoria hasn't finished higher than ninth place in Serie A since the 2014-15 season, and this year isn't off to a promising start since it sits in 15th place in the standings.

Italian Serie A picks for Atalanta vs. Sampdoria
Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the Sampdoria vs. Atalanta picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Atalanta vs. Sampdoria, Green is backing Atalanta to win and two or more goals in the match at -105 odds. These teams rarely play to scoreless draws or even 1-0 results, as they've combined for eight goals over their last three matchups. That averages to 2.67 per game.
Atalanta has been the highest-scoring team in Serie A the last four seasons while also allowing an average of over one goal per game. It often produces entertaining matches with back-and-forth action, and you could say the same about Sampdoria. Its nine games this season have seen 30 total goals scored, which equates to 3.33 per match.
The biggest difference between the two clubs is the level of talent that each side possesses, with Atalanta having an edge despite several absences. Playmakers Duvan Zapata and Mario Pasalic rank among the top 10 in goals and assists, respectively, in Serie A, while Sampdoria will be without Mikkel Damsgaard. The 21-year-old lit up Denmark's Superliga two years ago with 11 goals and six assists, but will be unavailable on Wednesday. His absence and Sampdoria's leaky defensive third have Green taking Atalanta.
"Sampdoria also struggles in defense, with just two clean sheets in nine games this season," Green told SportsLine. "At home, it has conceded 11 goals in five matches, which does not augur well for the visit of a team containing Muriel, Iličić, Duvan Zapata and Malinovskiy."
