Saturday 01 August

Brescia 5/1
Draw 38/10
Sampdoria 9/20
Brescia who were relegated a few weeks ago have nothing to play for and they come into this fixture off the back of three consecutive defeats. They play another team who are on a three-match losing streak in Sampdoria. A draw is on the cards.

AC Milan 7/20
Draw 9/2
Cagliari 13/2
AC Milan have been remarkable in the past few weeks, winning four and drawing one of their last five games, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic becoming the first player to score 50 goals for both Inter and AC Milan in the process. On the other hand, Cagliari surprised table-topping Juventus, beating them 2-0. I think Milan will make sure of a win knowing that the visitors aren’t to be underestimated.

Atalanta 13/10 
Draw 26/10 
Inter Milan 18/10
This is a battle to finish second between Atalanta who are unbeaten in their last 19 games across all competitions and Inter who are unbeaten in their last seven games with four wins. I’ll back over 2.5 goals at 9/20.

Juventus 19/10
Draw 28/10
Roma 12/10
Juventus seem to have taken their foot off the pedal since winning the league. The Old Lady have lost two of their last three games. Whether Cristiano Ronaldo will make up the four-goal deficit on Ciro Immobile in the battle for the Italian and European Golden boot remains to be seen but I think he’ll score in this match. On the other hand, resurgent Roma who have registered four wins in their last five games have already sealed a Europa League spot. I think backing CR7 to find the back of the net at 8/10 is the safest bet.

Napoli 19/10
Draw 11/4
Lazio 5/4
Napoli have been indifferent since winning the Copa Italia which has seen them plummet to seventh on the log and miss out on European football next season. A win for Lazio could see them finish second and I think they’ll give it their best shot. My money is on the visitors.

Sunday 02 August

Spal 5/1
Draw 38/10
Fiorentina 9/20
Spal are rooted to the foot of the table and literally have nothing to play for as their relegation was confirmed a few weeks ago and they’re winless ever since. By a way of contrast, Fiorentina have won three of their last five games. Get on the Fiorentina win here.

Bologna 23/20
Draw 29/10
Torino 39/20
This is a bottom half of the table clash with Bologna who lie 12th going head to head with Torino who’ve just done enough to survive relegation. In their respective last five games, Bologna have lost three and won one while Torino have won one and lost two. I’ll take my chance with a draw.

Genoa 11/20
Draw 34/10
Hellas Verona 9/2
Genoa are one point above the drop zone and they know that anything short of a victory could mean relegation. They meet a Verona side who understandably beat bottom placed Spal to snap a seven-match winless run the last time out. Put your money on the hosts as they will be fighting tooth and nail to avoid relegation.

Lecce 11/20
Draw 36/10
Parma 17/4
This is a do or die clash for Lecce who are just one point off safety. A win might help them leapfrog Genoa into 17th place and survive relegation. Parma have lost three of their last five games. This should be a victory for the hosts.

Treble @ 4/1
AC Milan 7/20
Lazio 5/4
Lecce 11/20
