At the top of the table, Juventus, Roma and Napoli all recorded victories. There aren’t any huge matches to get the blood boiling in the Serie A this weekend, but there is money to be made. Both Teams To Score has proven to be a reliable betting market in recent weeks as well as a few of the other exotics.
Sassuolo are coming off a hard fought 1-1 draw away to Sampdoria. Fiorentina extended their unbeaten run to five matches after coming from a goal down to edge Atalanta 3-2. The sides played out to a goalless draw in the reverse fixture. Both teams have looked impressive of late and another close affair is expected. Jump on the Under 2.5 goals market at 8/10.
Palermo were thrashed 3-0 last time out away to Inter Milan. They have another tough fixture ahead as Napoli come to town fresh off a 3-1 home win against Udinese, making it six wins from their last seven games. Napoli have won four of the last five meetings against Palermo and are tipped to add to that.
AC Milan 15/20
Milan will host newcomers Empoli after falling to a 3-1 loss at Juventus. They have struggled to get any sort of momentum going but will welcome Empoli who have managed just one win from ten travels. Empoli registered a 2-0 win at home to nineteenth place Cesena last weekend and will be happy with a win or draw here. However, Milan should prove too strong for their opponents.
Title contenders Roma got back to winning ways last weekend with a 2-1 victory away to Cagliari. Next up is bottom of the log Parma who have lost nine of their ten matches on the road. Roma won the reverse fixture 2-1 and look a certainty to pull the double over their relegation threatened opponents. Back Roma on the Half-Time/Full-Time double at 8/10.
Inter Milan 12/10
Atalanta put in a solid performance away to Fiorentina despite going down 3-2. Inter Milan looked their best as they ousted Palermo 3-0 at home. They will be looking to build on that but looking at their poor away record of two wins from eleven travels, it makes them a dodgy bet. Atalanta showed plenty of fight the last time out and a draw looks the best bet here.
Hellas Verona 32/10
Genoa are coming off an impressive 1-0 win away to Udinese. They will be looking to build on that when they welcome Verona. Verona suffered their third loss from their last four games after a 3-1 defeat at home against Turin. They have travelled poorly, scoring ten goals and conceding twenty. The sides drew the reverse tie 2-2 but with home advantage, Genoa are tipped for the win.
Turin have been in superb form with four consecutive victories. A 3-1 win away to Verona extended their unbeaten run to eight matches. Cagliari lie just one point off the relegation zone. They have been poor of late with back-to-back defeats after losing 2-1 at home against Roma last weekend. Torino have won the last two meetings against Cagliari and are tipped to add to that.
Udinese return to their home ground fresh off a 3-1 defeat away to Napoli. They take on Lazio who lost their second consecutive match going down 1-0 at home against Genoa. Both sides have leaked goals this season making the Both Teams To Score market at 17/20 a good punt, but if you’re looking for some value, take a score draw.
A 2-1 loss at home against Napoli last weekend was Chievo’s third consecutive defeat. Sampdoria have struggled in recent weeks, managing only two wins from their last eight matches. They were held to a 1-1 draw at home against Sassuolo last weekend and should find it difficult here. Sampdoria have won the last four meetings against Chievo but are tipped to get a draw this time around.
Cesena will lock horns with unstoppable powerhouses Juventus. The home side will be pleased with any positive result here after losing 2-0 away to Empoli last weekend. Juve maintained their unbeaten home record after winning 3-1 at home against AC Milan. Juventus have the best away record in the league and after winning the reverse tie 3-0, they should get up to claim the maximum points against Cesena.
