Lazio Moneyline -175 v Sassuolo
Lazio’s hopes of winning the Italian Serie A have been hit hard by losses to AC Milan and Lecce recently but they can get back on track with victory over Sassuolo.
The Romans have lost only three league matches since September and can rely on the offensive power of Ciro Immobile, who has scored 29 goals in Serie A this season.
Their opponents Sassuolo are on a good run of form but their defense has struggled against stronger opposition – they conceded four goals against Atalanta and three against Inter Milan – any they could struggle to tame Lazio.
Man City Moneyline -300 @ Brighton
Man City are red-hot favorites against Brighton and should be a lock.
Pep Guardiola’s team may be fixed in second spot in the Premier League but they will need to keep winning games as they build-up to the Champions League and the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
City has enjoyed some superb results of late, thrashing champions Liverpool 4-0 and dismantling Newcastle United 5-0 either side of a defeat to Southampton, who they should have beaten given they had 25 shots in the game.
Brighton played Liverpool as recently as Wednesday and could be fatigued for this match given they were on the back foot in midweek, having trailed 2-0 after only eight minutes.
Atletico Madrid Moneyline -200 v Real Betis
Atletico Madrid has been among the best performers in Spain since the La Liga season restarted and they are now unbeaten in their last 13 games.
Since returning to action they have held Barcelona to a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou and beaten Europa League-chasing Villarreal, so they know how to handle teams with a strong offense.
They should, therefore, be fancied to get the better of Betis, who endured a miserable return to action in Spain’s top flight and consequently dismissed manager Rubi.
Betis have won only one of their last four matches and, set to finish in the mid-table positions this season.
