Saturday’s slate of the 2020-21 Serie A Matchday 6 will wrap up with the super interesting clash at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara where Bologna welcomes Cagliari. 

The hosts will try to snap a three-game skid and escape from a danger zone, while the visiting team will search for its third straight victory, so excitements are guaranteed in this one.

Hereof, let’s see what’s the best Bologna vs. Cagliari betting pick for Saturday afternoon, as the kick-off is set at 2:45 PM ET.

Bologna vs. Cagliari Odds

BTTS YES-180
BTTS NO+160
Bologna to Win-110
Cagliari to Win+260
Draw+290
Over 3.0-110
Under 3.0+100

Despite the teams’ current form, Bologna is listed as a firm fave to win this clash. According to the Bovada.lv sportsbook, the Greyhounds and Islanders should produce some goals, and the bookies believe that both teams will find the net.

At the moment, Cagliari’s defense is the second-worst in the Italian Serie A, while Bologna’s defense is the fourth-worst in the league.

Bologna vs. Cagliari Preview

Bologna is sitting at the 17th spot of the Serie A standings, just above the relegation zone. The Greyhounds have earned only one win along with four losses while tallying an 8:10 goal difference.

As I’ve mentioned, they are riding a three-game losing streak following a 2-1 defeat at Lazio this past weekend. In two outings at home, Bologna defeated Parma 4-1 and lost to Sassuolo 3-4 despite a 3-1 lead early in the second half.

Midfielder Roberto Soriano leads the way for the Greyhounds with three goals and three assists, while winger Riccardo Orsolini netted twice. Four players will miss Saturday’s clash due to injuries, but all Bologna’s important first-team players are ready to go.

On the other side, Cagliari is laying at the 11th spot with seven points and a 10:12 goal difference. The Islanders have recorded a couple of wins and losses along with one draw, but they’ve won the previous two games against Torino 3-2 on the road and Crotone 4-2 at home.

Striker Giovanni Simeone is the Islanders’ best player this term. He already scored four goals in five appearances. Midfielder Joao Pedro added three goals and a couple of dishes, while five different players recorded an assist each.

The Islanders cannot count on midfielder Gaston Pereiro (foot), but all other guys are ready to go.

Bologna vs. Cagliari Pick

This Bologna versus Cagliari showdown should be a joy to watch, as both teams prefer an attacking approach and will look for all three points.

Cagliari’s last three Serie A contests produced five or more goals in total, and both teams scored twice in each of those encounters. The Islanders’ D is obviously a big issue, but the Greyhounds’ defensive effort hasn’t impressed either.

Bologna failed to keep its net intact in all five showings this season.

Considering the teams’ current form and their problems on the defensive end, I have to bet on the over 3.0 goals in total. Picking both teams to score at -180 is another interesting option, of course, if you’re satisfied with the odds.

Last season, the Islanders beat the Greyhounds 3-2 at home, while their head-to-head duel at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara in Bologna was finished in a 1-1 draw.

Pick
  • Over 3.0
    -110
