While Lazio has been the slightly better team this season, they are also playing their first match since the coronavirus break and they could be rusty from a lack of competition. With Atalanta already having played one game after the break, they should be firing on close to all cylinders in this one. I like the Over three total goals first and foremost and I believe it’s going to come in a flat-out thriller of a draw!
