Juve are back to winning ways after their most recent stumble against Fiorentina. They put two past Lazio to secure all three points and the top spot of the table. Roma won their fourth consecutive win against Cagliari last weekend, maintaining pressure on title competitors Juve. It was an iconic win for Napoli at the San Siro, scoring two quick goals in succession that left the Rossoneri demoralised. Inter climbed to fifth place with their away against Palermo and have secured their sixth consecutive victory. AC Milan on the other hand, slid down the table to seventh and winning their game in hand will not be a colossal improvement. We’ll delve deeper to discover the best bets for the weekend when betting on Serie A.
Betting on Juve
Prior to beating Lazio at home, Juve lost to Fiorentina and Roma wasted no time capitalizing on their defeat. Now there’s only a single point separating first from second, but Juve are yet to play their game in hand. Now the Bianconeri face Sassuolo away from home, a squad that gleaming with their back to back wins. Juve are the favourites in almost all the games they play and this is no different, having odds of 13/25 to beat Sassuolo. Juve’s away form is currently not on par with one’s expectations, as they only secured two wins from their last five, losing the other three.
From all their games on the road, Juve won five from their nine matches but with the added pressure from Roma, we’d expect Juve to come out on top. The league leaders have conceded in four of their five most recent away games and betting on both teams to score might be an interesting option as odds are priced at 19/20. However, if you’re a firm believer in Juve’s capabilities and looking for better odds, try handicap betting. Odds for Juve to win with a goal difference of two or more are priced at 11/8.
Bet on Roma
One goal was enough to collect all three points against Cagliari, a match Roma needed to win to maintain pressure on league leaders Juve. Roma have incredible statistics from their last five games played, winning four, and keeping clean sheets in three. They now face Sampdoria away from home and odds for beating the Genoa based side are currently priced at 39/50.
Roma only conceded two goals in their last five games and odds for one team (or none) to score are set at 28/25. Even on the road, Roma only managed to concede two goals, which cements the reason for betting on only one team to score. For even better odds, consider handicap betting on Roma. With 42 goals scored, Roma are tied with Juve in second place for the most goals scored in the season so far and odds for beating Sampdoria with a goal difference of two or more stand at 2/1.
Bet on Napoli
Napoli are unbeaten in their last five games and are now in third place with four points away from the leaders. The two goals scored in three minutes were enough to sink the Rossoneri at the San Siro, a match Napoli were required to win to remain competitive in Serie A. Napoli host Palermo on Sunday night, a team that’s been striving to keep their head above water at the bottom of the table. Odds are too low to even consider betting on Napoli to win, however, handicap betting will return a higher profit, especially if you back Napoli to win with a difference of three goals or more, as odds are set at 87/100.
Napoli are the highest scoring team of Serie A and have scored a total of 13 goals in five games and 16 goals in five games in front of their own fans. It’s important to note that the Neapolitan side conceded in four of their five home games and odds for both teams to score are set at 27/25.
