Football Bet of the Day: BTTS in Bergamo

Tobias Gourlay expects defences to be beaten black and blue as Atalanta host Salernitana in Serie A tonight

Atalanta v Salernitana
Monday 19:45 (Live on BT Sport 1)

Kev went high in the Low Countries yesterday and it paid off. Feyenoord won 3-1 at Fortuna Sittard to land his Over 3.5 Goals bet and send him skipping into a week off.

We begin with a bank holiday trip to Italy. Salernitana have looked doomed for long periods of the Serie A season, but three straight wins have raised hopes of an unlikely survival. They visit eighth-placed Atalanta tonight and we fancy the visitors to at least get onto the score-sheet.

Salernitana have won their last two road games and scored at least once in the last three. Home and away, their scoring run is four.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta have been goal machines at their Gewiss Stadium in recent years. Last time out, they drew 4-4 with Torino. The Black & Blues have now conceded nine times across their last three home appearances. With 12/16 league games in Bergamo delivering BTTS, we’re backing the hosts – and heavy favourites – to concede again today.
