Super Thursday Betting Tips That Will Earn You Big Money

LAZIO V UDINESE

Lazio will be hoping for a better result after a 4-0 Serie A defeat last time out to SSC Napoli.

In that match, Lazio managed 39% possession and 6 shots on goal with 2 on target. At the other end, SSC Napoli had 18 attempts on goal with 8 on target. Piotr Zieliński (7'), Dries Mertens (10', 29') and Fabián Ruiz (85') scored for SSC Napoli.

Matches featuring Lazio have usually been exciting encounters of late with a lot of goalmouth action anticipated. Over their past six games alone, the sum total of 20 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 10 of those being chalked up by Lazio. That kind of pattern might not be sustained here, however.

In the game prior to this, Udinese drew 0-0 in the Serie A tie with Genoa.

In that match, Udinese managed 43% possession and 17 shots at goal with 3 on target. For their opponents, Genoa got 8 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target.

The stats tell the story, and Udinese have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 8 goals in all. Defensively, Udinese have seen their frailties exposed.

Coming into this fixture, Udinese are without an away win for the past 5 league games.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

BAHIA V ATLETICO MINEIRO

Bahia won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 2-1 Serie A defeat last time out to Atlético Goianiense.

In that game, Bahia managed 51% possession and 14 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Bahia was Hugo Rodallega (71'). Atlético Goianiense had 12 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Marlon Freitas (60') and Janderson (93') scored for Atlético Goianiense.

Guto Ferreira's Bahia have hit the back of the net a sum total of 5 times in their past 6 outings. At the other end, the number of goals that they have conceded in those same fixtures amounts to 7.

Atlético Mineiro go into this encounter after a 2-1 Serie A win with the defeat of Fluminense in their previous match.

In that match, Atlético Mineiro had 49% possession and 9 shots at goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Atlético Mineiro was Hulk (38', 60'). On the other side, Fluminense had 6 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Manoel (14') scored for Fluminense.

A series of resolute displays from the Atlético Mineiro defenders has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 3 from their last 6 clashes combined. In that time, their forwards have scored 11.

Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals

GREMIO V SAO PAULO

Grêmio will be hoping to bounce back here following the 3-1 Serie A defeat in their last game at the hands of Bahia.

In that match, Grêmio had 65% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player to score for Grêmio was Thiago Santos (61'). Bahia got 13 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Matheus Bahia (13'), Nascimento (18') and Daniel (85') scored for Bahia.

Three or more goals per match have been seen in 5 of the last 6 meetings where Grêmio have taken part. Their opponents scored 9 times in these games while Grêmio amassed a tally of 11. It will be interesting to see if that trend will end up being continued on here.

São Paulo will come into the match following on from a 2-0 Serie A win versus Sport Recife in their most recent fixture.

In that game, São Paulo had 50% possession and 20 shots on goal with 9 of them on target. For São Paulo, goals were scored by Jonathan Calleri (50') and Gabriel Sara (80'). On the other side, Sport Recife got 7 attempts on goal with 4 on target.

A tendency of at least one team drawing a blank in games involving São Paulo has been apparent of late. A glance at their last 6 games shows that this has happened 5 times. During those clashes, their opponents have hit a goal total of 6 while São Paulo have scored 5.

Going into this one, São Paulo have not been beaten in their last 2 league matches away from home.

Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
