UEFA Europa League picks for Bayer Leverkusen vs. Atalanta
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Atalanta vs. Bayer Leverkusen picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. He is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Bayer Leverkusen vs. Atalanta, Eimer is backing Leverkusen draw no bet at +155 odds. Recent form of these squads heavily favors Leverkusen, which is in third place in the Bundesliga. It is coming off an impressive draw against the league’s top team, Bayern Munich, and also nabbed a dominating 5-2 victory over second-place Stuttgart last month. Leverkusen has five wins over its last seven games, while Atalanta is on a downward spiral.
The Italian club’s struggles have coincided with an injury to leading scorer Duvan Zapata. Without him, Atalanta has been shut out four times over its last 10 games in all competitions. Prior to that, the team had been shut out in just two of its first 27 games of the season.
“While Bayer Leverkusen has been doing amazingly as of late, Atalanta has been struggling in their recent form,” Eimer told SportsLine. “With three losses in their last five league games, they’ve been struggling to stay in the top five of the league, and with a big loss to Roma last week while still missing their top scorer, Atalanta has looked far from the team we’re used to seeing.”
