Juve marked their fifth consecutive win in what was another routine win for Allegri’s side. They are now seven points clear of challengers Roma, who secured back to back wins with their most recent victory over struggling Crotone. Napoli are now unbeaten in their last 13 matches, sending a clear message that it’s going to take a miraculous performance to beat Maurizio Sarri’s men. Inter recovered in the best possible way from their defeat to Juve, with a solid win over Empoli where they climbed to fourth place. Atalanta are having an impressive season too, occupying fourth place after their away win to Palermo. Betting on Serie A is a less tricky then the Premier League, as the mid-table squads in England tend to be far stronger than those in Italy and have a better chance of upsetting the title contenders. We’ll take a closer look at the betting information you should be looking at when placing a bet on Serie A for the weekend.
Bet on Juve
Juve are now eight points clear over second place and have a relatively easy fixture by the Bianconeri’s standards, as they face Palermo in their next encounter. Odds for Juve to win the game are not worth the bet, as they’re only priced at 1/7, but handicap betting might be a smarter bet if you’re looking for better odds. 28/25 are the odds for Juve to win with a goal difference of three or more. Palermo are eight points away from climbing out the relegation zone and will have trouble finding the net against a robust and in form side. Odds for one team to score (or none) are priced at 8/13, which are decent odds to consider adding to your multiples bet. However, Palermo, from their most recent five games on the road, managed to find the net in four. Juve play a very offensive game and tend to break the deadlock – four from their last five resulted in Juve opening the score and odds for Juve to win the first half are priced at 1/2.
Bet on Roma
Roma suffered a huge blow to their title aspirations a couple of weeks ago which could have edged them closer to the Bianconeri. But they held their head high and bounced back in style, securing back to back wins over Fiorentina and Crotone. They now host Torino at the Stadio Olimpico, a team that’s sitting in mid-table and buzzing from their latest win over Pescara.
Roma are the second highest scoring team in the Italian top flight and managed to find the net 11 times from five games. Torino have lost their last six away matches against Roma in the Serie A and odds for Roma to beat them again stand at 4/9. Looking to bet on goals? Roma kept clean sheets in three of their last five games and are in a good position to keep another clean sheet, priced at 7/6.
Bet on Napoli
Napoli are unbeaten in 18 games in all competitions. That’s an impressive unbeaten run and they intend on keeping up the pace as they prepare for their next encounter after their visit to Madrid in the mid-week. Napoli will travel to Verona to face Chievo, a team sitting in the middle of the table. Napoli are priced at 12/25 to beat Chievo and having won four from their last five matches on the road, scoring an impressive 19 goals in five away matches. Odds for Napoli to win with a goal difference of two or more stand at 33/25.
