After three consecutive third-place Italian Serie A finishes, Atalanta is one spot back as it enters play on Thursday ranking fourth.

The club will host Torino which sits 11th in Serie A after barely escaping relegation last season. You can watch the drama unfold when you catch all the action live on Paramount+.

Italian Serie A picks for Torino vs. Atalanta
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Atalanta vs. Torino picks from European soccer insider Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge about leagues and players most people don’t know exist, including most oddsmakers. He understands that oddsmakers don’t focus on obscure leagues, so Jon has become obsessed with learning everything possible about smaller leagues. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Torino vs. Atalanta, Eimer is backing both teams to score at -125 odds. These clubs have played each other three times over the last 16 months and all three games featured goals from both sides. Atalanta has scored nine goals over those three games while Torino has found the back of the net six times.
In all competitions, Atalanta’s games have seen both teams score four out of the last five times out as the team is nearly as likely to give up a goal as it is to score one. As for Torino, four of its last six contests in all competitions have seen both teams score. It’s attacking third also gets a boost as Atalanta could be without goalkeeper Juan Musso, as well as defenders Joakim Maehle and Rafael Toloi.
This was shaping up to be a high-scoring affair even before Atalanta’s personnel losses. Those only give Torino an even better chance to score which is what it has done in five of its last six games. Eimer confidently backs both teams to score and wouldn’t even rule out both squads scoring multiple times.
“Both teams are more than capable of scoring more than once, however, their back lines have shown historically that they have a problem preventing goals in their own net,” Eimer told SportsLine.
