Italian Serie A picks for Bologna vs. Napoli
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Napoli vs. Bologna picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Napoli vs. Bologna, Green is taking Napoli to win by at least 1.5 goals for a -110 payout. Napoli is coming off a fifth-place finish in Serie A last season, but it feels title-ready with a dynamic attack led by Victor Osimhen, Lorenzo Insigne and Hirving Lozano.
Osimhen is a 22-year-old who was signed from Lille and scored 10 goals during his first season with Napoli in 2020-21, but he’s staking his claim as one of the best young strikers in the world. Osimhen has five goals in eight Serie A matches to go along with four goals in three Europa League matches. Meanwhile, Insigne and Lozano provide plenty of pace on the respective wings and the midfield has also been incredibly solid.
“Kalidou Koulibaly is a rock at the heart of the defense, while Kosovo captain Amir Rrahmani has impressed alongside him, and loan signing André-Franck Zambo Anguissa has screened the defense very effectively in the holding midfield role,” Green told SportsLine. “Luciano Spalletti’s men were unlucky to draw 0-0 with Roma at the weekend. They hit the post and the crossbar, and dominated possession, but they should get back to winning ways against a Bologna team with a poor defensive record.”
