Italian Serie A picks for Lazio vs. Fiorentina
You must view the Fiorentina-vs. Lazio picks by sports betting expert Jon Eimer before you can tune in to Saturday’s match. Eimer is a high volume bettor with extensive knowledge of all leagues and players around the world. Eimer joined SportsLine in 2012 and has been covering the English Premier League, Serie A and the FA Cup. Over a two-month period, the Indiana-based handicapper had a winning record at 260-133-1 and more than 90 units of profit.
Eimer backs Lazio to win against Fiorentina with a draw that results in a push (+105). Fiorentina may be leading in the Serie A standings but it will have to work hard to qualify for the European qualifying spots after selling star forward Dusan Vahovic to Juventus for $85 million during January's transfer window.
Vlahovic scored 17 goals this season in 21 matches of Serie A with Fiorentina. Replacing that production will be a huge undertaking. Cristiano Biraghi, the Defender, is the second player on the team with four league goals. No forward has scored more than three times during Serie A play.
Lazio managed to keep clean sheets in the three matches it played before the international break. However, their defensive problems continued throughout the 20+ matches of Serie A play. Lazio (46) and AC Milan (53) have scored more goals this season than Lazio (46), so the Roman team will be a serious threat to climb the table if they continue their defensive improvement.
