Tuesday 21 July

Atalanta 1/4
Draw 52/10
Bologna 8/1
This should be an easy game to call with Atalanta enduring a 17-match unbeaten run across all competitions while Bologna come into the game off the back of a four-match winless run. I foresee the home side winning it easily. Get on the home win at 1/4.

Sassuolo 3/1 
Draw 31/10 
AC Milan 15/20
It’s seventh against eighth but AC Milan have been in sizzling form over the past few weeks. Last week they ran riot, annihilating Bologna 5-1. Sassuolo are unbeaten in the last five games with three wins but they come into this game off the back of two consecutive draws. It’s hard to pick a winner but I’ll back both teams to score since they have been finding the back of the net for fun. 

Wednesday 22 July

Parma 9/2 
Draw 33/10 
Napoli 11/20
This should be another easy one to call as Parma have lost four of their last five games while Napoli remain unbeaten in the same period. The visitors will be looking to cement their place in the top six and a defeat could see AC Milan leapfrog them. I’m backing Napoli to win.

Sampdoria 15/10 
Draw 23/10 
Genoa 18/10
As far as recent form goes, Sampdoria have won four of their last five games and they’ve just about survived relegation. Genoa did themselves a huge favour by beating Lecce is a massive relegation six pointer the last time out. They are now four points above the relegation zone and their mission will be to kick away from the drop zone. Samdoria have nothing to play for now hence I’m tipping a shock Genoa win.

Inter Milan 9/20
Draw 38/10
Fiorentina 11/2
Both teams have been unpredictable in recent weeks and Inter let Juventus open up an eight-point gap when they drew 2-2 with AS Roma. Fiorentina are unbeaten in the last five games and are enjoying two-match winning run. I can’t separate these two sides and I think they will cancel each other out.

Torino 13/10
Draw 47/20
Hellas Verona 2/1
Torino have been disappointing and inconsistent this season, losing 19 of their 34 games so far this season. Verona have also been inconsistent with 11 wins and 11 defeats. The outcome will depend on which sides is hungrier on the day as they both virtually have nothing to play for at this stage. I’ll take my chance with a draw.

Lecce 8/10
Draw 3/1
Brescia 29/10
This is a game between two sides who are in the relegation zone! Lecce are four points off safety while the visitors are nine points adrift of safety and their relegation might be confirmed on this day. Put your money on Lecce as they still have a slight glimmer of survival hope.

Spal 7/1
Draw 9/2
Roma 3/10
Spal are rooted to the foot of the table and their relegation was confirmed last week. They have nothing to play for and they face a Roma side who are placed fifth and are unbeaten in the last four games. I’m confident in a Roma win.

Thursday 23 July

Udinese 17/4
Draw 3/1
Juventus 6/10
Udinese who have lost 16 games so far this season will have their work cut out for them against a Juventus side who are looking to wrap up the league title as soon as possible. As you would imagine, I backed Cristiano Ronaldo to score anytime this past Monday and I was on the money as he netted a brace. He’s now tied on 30 goals with Ciro Immobile. He really wants the golden boot award and I foresee him scoring in this match.

Lazio 5/10
Draw 7/2
Cagliari 5/1
Lazio missed out on a chance to go second when they lost 2-1 to Juventus on Monday night. Ciro Immobile is tied on 30 goals with Cristiano Ronaldo and will be looking to find the back of the net against a Cagliari side who are winless in the last five games. Back Immobile to score anytime at 9/20.

Treble @ 7/1
Napoli 11/20
Genoa 18/10
Lecce 8/10
