Today's Top Betting Tips for Sampdoria vs Atalanta

Atalanta finished in a disappointing 8th position last season and will be looking to get the new Serie A campaign off to a positive start with an away win. Hosts Sampdoria finished three places and 6pts above the relegation zone last time out and will be hoping to push further into mid-table safety this season.

Atalanta to Win

Atalanta have won four of their last five league meetings with Sampdoria and we're backing the visitors to pick up another 3pts this weekend. Sampdoria have only spent around £4m on new players so far this summer and the squad really needs more investment if it is to push forward this season, while Atalanta have made three big signings each in the region of £20m and will be expected to challenge for the Champions League places.
