Italian Serie A picks for Roma vs. AC Milan
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Roma vs. AC Milan 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 $37,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For AC Milan vs. Roma, Green is picking AC Milan to win on the 90-minute money line. The Rossoneri were bested by 12 points by their rivals Inter Milan in the hunt for the 2021 title. But the gap has narrowed and AC Milan would love nothing more than to hunt Inter Milan down in the table to capture a 19th scudetta that would match Inter’s 19th title last season.
The break came at a good time for AC Milan and they’re now expecting Ante Rebic and Rafael Leao back from injuries to flank Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who leads the team with seven Serie A goals this season in 11 matches. Green is betting Ibrahimovic to get into the scoring column once again with all the returning talent around him and also sees AC Milan taking advantage of a COVID-strapped Roma roster.
“Roma has reported that four unnamed players have tested positive for COVID-19, so the squad could be a little depleted for this game, which makes its task even harder against a refreshed and fired-up AC Milan,” Green told SportsLine. “(Roma) is 10 points behind AC Milan in the table, and it lacks the quality to challenge for the Scudetto.”
