SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Lazio's meeting with Sampdoria in Serie A on Saturday.
Lazio vs Sampdoria (Saturday, 14:00)
Lazio will be looking to get back to winning ways when they welcome Sampdoria to the Olimpico Stadium on Saturday.
Simeone Inzaghi's sides' six match winning streak was snapped at the San Siro last Sunday, on a night where Inter Milan ran out 3-1 winners.
That setback saw Lazio slide down to seventh-place in the Serie A standings but the Romans remain firmly in the mix for a Champions League berth.
Sampdoria, meanwhile, arrive in Rome off the back of a 2-1 win over Fiorentina, a result that kept Claudio Ranieri's crew in the top-half of the table.
Lazio are heavily fancied to get back on track this weekend at a general 4/6, but instead I'll head to Bet 365's Bet Builder to get a bigger price.
The 5/6 (Bet 365) combination I like the look of here is Lazio to win, over two Lazio corners and over zero Sampdoria cards.
Lazio have won each of their last seven matches on home turf and they will be coming up against a Samp side who have triumphed in just two of their last eight Italian top-flight road trips.
What's more, Lazio's top-four rivals Atalanta and Napoli lock horns on Sunday so a home win here would propel Lazio above both of those sides, at least temporarily.
With that in mind, coupled with Lazio's superior quality, I'll happily back the capital club to bounce back by bagging three points on Saturday.
In order to boost the price I'll throw in over two Lazio corners – the Eagles are averaging five corners per game this season, a figure that increases to 5.73 at the Olimpico.
With the visitors expected to be on the back foot for long stages on Saturday I'll complete the Bet Builder with over zero Sampdoria cards.
Sampdoria are averaging 2.64cards per game this term – the third-highest tally in the division – and it's worth noting that referee Davide Massa is flashing almost five cards per game in Serie A this season.
