      Tip Reasoning

      Empoli are four games into the 2015-16 Serie A season and they’ve played their best football in the last two games. They earned a tough 2-2 draw against Napoli, who have looked extremely dangerous since that game and they claimed a 2-1 away win over Udinese at the weekend.

      They’ve got another chance to pick up valuable points when they face Atalanta on Thursday night. There’s some signs that this team has changed its identity for 2015-16, with more emphasis on counter-attacking with pace and scoring goals, rather than aiming to be a “lockdown” style club.

      They face Atalanta on Thursday, a team that will feel relatively pleased with their first four games this season. They’ve earned a win and a couple of positive draws against Sassuolo and Verona.

      Atalanta are just trying to figure out anyway in which they can be competitive. They look better than a couple of other recently promoted teams, but trips like the one on Thursday will go a long way to shaping up that picture.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Defensive fragility

      The early concern for both teams in this match-up will be their defensive fragility early in the season. It’s not a problem that is likely to disappear overnight and we think it should lead to goals in this match-up.

      2. Crazy Serie A

      There’s just something about Serie A this season. There’s been a high percentage of upsets, plenty of goals and lots of twists and turns in high profile games. We’re liking BTTS betting tips on almost all Serie A games right now.

      3. Empoli will have a go

      The early season suggests that Empoli are more willing to have a go and we think that the result of that will be a more open game than perhaps some might expect.
