Lecce 8/1
Draw 9/2 
Lazio 3/10
Lecce expectedly lost to Sassuolo on the weekend to stretch their losing streak to six games. They meet a Lazio side who seek redemption after suffering a 3-0 defeat at the hands of AC Milan. Simone Inzaghi’s men are now seven points off the pace and clawing their way into the title race looks insurmountable. Still the visitors should be too strong for the relegation-threatened hosts. Back Lazio to triumph here. 

AC Milan 49/20 
Draw 47/20 
Juventus 11/10
Milan shocked title-chasing Lazio 3-0 and they’ll be gunning for another big scalp when they host top-placed Juventus on Tuesday evening. In terms of popular figures, Zlatan Ibrahimović converted from the spot for the hosts the last time out while Cristiano Ronaldo netted a free kick for Juventus in their 4-1 drubbing of Torino. That was CR7’s fourth goal in as many league games and I’ll put my money on him to score anytime at 17/20. 

Fiorentina 19/20 
Draw 5/2 
Cagliari 28/10
This is a match between two mid-table teams which have been indifferent in recent weeks. Fiorentina have won one of their last five games while Cagliari have won two and lost two of their last five games. This should be a boring encounter and I foresee the sides sharing the spoils. 

Genoa 52/10 
Draw 31/10 
Napoli 11/20
Genoa are two points above the relegation zone and they head into this one off the back of a four-match winless run. Napoli have won four of their last five games and they should have no trouble brushing aside a lesser team. I think the visitors will win this one comfortably. 

Roma 9/20 
Draw 7/2 
Parma 11/2
Roma have been disappointing in recent weeks, suffering three consecutive defeats and they seek redemption against Parma who are also enduring the same results heading into the game. I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends in a draw. 

Atalanta 4/10 
Draw 17/4 
Sampdoria 57/10
Atalanta continued their impressive form last week to stretch their winning streak to 10 games. They welcome Sampdoria who have won two back to back games. Both sides are in good form but Atalanta have more quality and they’re playing at home. I foresee the hosts winning this one. 

Torino 6/10 
Draw 29/10 
Brescia 9/2
These teams have been dreadful in recent weeks, having both won once in the last five games. Torino are enduring a three-match losing streak while Brescia surprisingly beat Verona 3-0 the last time out. This is another match which should end in stalemate. 

Bologna 12/10 
Draw 26/10 
Sassuolo 2/1
There isn’t much to choose between Bologna and Sassuolo as they lie ninth and 10th on the log respectively. They both have won two of their last five games. A draw is on the cards. 

Spal 39/20 
Draw 22/10 
Udinese 29/20
Spal are rooted to the foot of the table with no hope to survive relegation. They are winless in the last four games. Udinese’s record is almost identical with only one win in the last five games. I think Spal have nothing to play for and they’re likely to lose here. 

Hellas Verona 29/10 
Draw 26/10 
Inter Milan 9/10
Both teams are desperate to return to winning ways after shocking results the last time out. Verona were beaten by relegation-threatened Brescia while Inter lost to Bologna. I think both sides will have a go at each other and Inter will triumph due to their superior quality. 

Quad @ 7/1 
Lazio 3/10
Atalanta 4/10 
Udinese 29/20 
Inter Milan 9/10
