Serie A Odds and Predictions – Milan Vs Sassuolo
Why Bet On Sassuolo
The Black and Green are sitting in eighth place in the Serie A standings with 48 points. Sassuolo has scored 63 goals this season while allowing 58 goals defensively (+5). The Red and Blacks have not lost a single match in their last eight outings while recording four wins along the way. Sassuolo comes into this affair off consecutive draws, including a 1-1- road tie against Cagliari on Saturday. Francesco Caputo scored off an early header, but the Red and Blacks allowed Cagliari’s Marko Rog to score a second half goal that resulted in a crushing blow as Sassuolo’s hopes of winning a place in the Europe League next season. Caputo has scored a team-high 18 goals for Sassuolo this season, while Berardi added 13 goals, and Boga added 11 goals. The Red and Blacks will be without Romagna, Obiang, Defrel, and Toljan for this match.
Why Bet On Milan

Milan has scored 74 goals this season while limiting the opposition to just 36 goals defensively (+38). The Red and Black come into this clash riding a two-match winning streak that includes an emphatic 5-1 rout of Bologna on Saturday. Ismael Bennacer and Alexis Saelemaeker both scored their first Serie A goals in their respective careers while Hakan Calhanoglu, Ante Rebic and Davide Calabria also scored on strikes as Milan overwhelmed their visiting rivals this past weekend. Milan has allowed just nine goals over their last eight matches and is second to Juventus and Lazio in goals allowed. Ante Rebic has scored a team-high 11 goals while Calhanoglu has added seven goals.

Expert Analysis and Prediction
While these two rivals played to a scoreless draw the last time they met back on December 15, Milan took three of the four previous meetings and hasn’t lost over the last five meetings overall. More importantly, Milan is the far better team at the defensive end of the pitch, having allowed 15 fewer goals than Sassuolo this season. While I’m certainly not expecting Sassuolo to go down without a fight, I am expecting Milan to emerge from this affair with the narrow, one-goal win. Sassuolo has gone 7-3-5 SU and 8-4-3 ATS at home this season, but Milan has gone 9-3-6 and a bankroll-boosting 10-6-2 ATS on the road. I’m going with the under 3.5 goals and Milan to get the win.
