In its opening game of the season, Lazio was a 2-1 winner at home against Bologna.

Following that, there was a 0-0 draw at Torino last weekend.

Meanwhile, Inter has begun its campaign against two of Serie A’s minor teams.

Firstly, there was a 2-1 win at Lecce. Then, subsequently, there was a 3-0 home defeat of Spezia.

There was a fifth-placed finish for Lazio last season and this term, it is looking to further embed coach Sarri’s highly-detailed and technical style.

Furthermore, Inter – with its 5-3-2 formation – was runner-up in 2021 -22 to city rivals AC Milan. 

It is hoping to regain the title it won in 2020-21 following the return of powerful striker Romelu Lukaku.

He was instrumental in that championship win and has now exited from an unhappy spell at Chelsea.

Lazio vs Inter Milan Prediction

At DraftKings Sportsbook, Inter is significantly favored for an away win at -120.

Meanwhile, Lazio is priced at +310. The draw is +255 – with kick-off at Rome’s Olympic Stadium at 2:45 pm ET.

Over/Under & Spread

Inter has scored five times in two relatively easy fixtures while Lazio has only two goals- and has already featured in a goalless stalemate.

However, it was the first time Lazio had failed to find the net in its last 10 most recent Serie A fixtures.

Even so, Lazio vs Inter Milan looks like it will be a tight contest.

That makes the offer of +120 for there to be fewer than three goals in Lazio vs Inter Milan the most compelling one (Under 2.5).

Backing the favorites, Inter, on the spread of -1.5 has odds of +225.

Romelu Lukaku to Score Odds

Belgian international Lukaku has already opened his Serie A account for this season – scoring after just two minutes in the opening win against Lecce.

He scored 64 times in 95 appearances in his previous two-season spell with Inter. 

Therefore, he is the favorite to be first on target in Lazio vs Inter Milan at +300.

Lazio skipper Ciro Immobile is just as prolific and hit 27 Serie A goals for the team last season.

Across the two campaigns, Inter has now won 10 of its last 11 Serie games.

Lazio vs Inter Milan Pick

A bold option in Lazio vs Inter Milan would be to go for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to score first at +900.

But this is going to be tight and it may be Lukaku who is the most powerful goal-scoring force on the pitch – and the most likely to be on target first.

Pick: Romelu Lukaku to score first (+300)
