Winners: CAG vs. MIL

Yesterday, we got back to winning after the disappointing loss by Atlanta United earlier in the week. The Nationals and Barcelona both won making our record 2-0 for the day. Outside of that 1-0 loss aided by an own goal, we haven’t lost in two weeks. Over these last few weeks, we’ve tweaked the system and it’s definitely paying dividends.

Let’s talk about today’s action.

Today, Cagliari faces AC Milan. Cagliari opened up its Serie A season with a loss to defending champion Juventus 3-0. AC Milan is currently enjoying an early season renaissance after spending almost $200 million this summer in the transfer window in attempt to rejoin Europe’s elite. Its biggest signing may be former Juventus and Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci, who bring title-winning experience to and young team with high aspirations. Milan has just qualified for the Europa League group stage after beating KF Shkendija 7-0 over two legs and now turn its attention to Serie A. With the way Juventus is playing, along with Napoli and Inter Milan, all of which will challenge for the Serie A title, AC Milan knows it will need to get as many points from games as possible.

Here’s how we’ll bet today’s game.

  • Pick 1: AC Milan -333 (Bet $50 to win $15.02)
  • Pick 2: Draw +450 (Bet $13 to win $58.50)

I believe AC Milan won’t lose this game based on the strength of its defense. Unlike Atlanta United, who’s weakness is unquestionably defense, Milan have excellent leadership back there.

We’ve been on a good run lately, but nothing is guaranteed. Let’s see what happens.
