Italian Serie A picks for Sampdoria vs. Napoli
Before you tune in to Thursday's match, you need to see the Napoli vs. Sampdoria 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 Sampdoria vs. Napoli, Green is predicting both teams to score at -145 odds. Napoli should have little trouble finding the back of the net since it ranks fourth in the Serie A with 10 goals. It can attack Sampdoria in a multitude of ways, as those 10 goals have come from nine different players, which prevents Sampdoria from keying in on one specific attacker.
Sampdoria's offense has also woken up over its last few games after being scoreless through its first two contests. Roberto D'Aversa's squad netted two goals in a draw against second-place Inter in a game last week before then scoring three goals on Monday against Empoli.
Also, while Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina posted a clean sheet on Monday, he allowed two goals in a Europa League draw last week. Counting that game, Napoli has allowed four goals in its last four games.
"Sampdoria has a lot of quality in attack, where a veteran trio of Caputo, Fabio Quagliarella and Candreva is joined by young Danish playmaker Mikkel Damsgaard," Green told SportsLine.
