This is where betting on Serie A gets really interesting. We’re down to the last nine matches of the Serie A and in the coming weeks, the battle for points will be the most fiery and intense. The top three clubs all recorded wins over the weekend maintaining their position at the top of the table. Napoli will host league leaders Juve in their next encounter and collecting all three points will add unnecessary pressure to the Bianconeri, especially with their upcoming Champions League bout against Barcelona. We’ll take a closer look at the other big games of the week and the information you should be researching when placing a bet on Serie A for the weekend.
Bet on Napoli vs Juve
These two sides will be meeting twice at the Stadio San Paolo in the space of four days as the second leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final has yet to be played. Napoli lost both encounters against Juve this season and will be seeking revenge in front of a full crowd in Naples. Napoli are currently third of the Serie A table with 10 points behind Juve, but winning at the San Paulo will make it more troublesome for Juve to achieve their goal, especially with a succession of tricky fixtures.
Surprisingly, Napoli are the favourites to win the game, with odds priced at 31/20. The last time Juve defeated Napoli at the San Paulo was back in 2015 and odds winning again stand at 37/20. Napoli are still the highest scoring team of the Serie A with 68 goals and four of their most recent five matches finished in over 2.5 goals. Juve’s defence is pretty solid, having only conceded 19 goals throughout the whole season. This makes betting on goals a little trickier, however, it’s hard to imagine Napoli not getting a goal in front of thousands of cheering fans. Both teams to score is priced at 18/25 while over 2.5 goals has odds of 23/25.
Bet on Roma
Roma are currently second in the Serie A table, eight points away from Juve and the Giallorossi will be hoping Juve will stumble in their upcoming clash against Napoli. Roma host Empoli in their upcoming fixture, a team hovering dangerously over the relegation zone and with six consecutive losses. Serie A betting fans will expecting Roma to win and odds for that happening are set at 1/5.
Although not very lucrative, try handicap betting on Roma, which means that Roma will need to win with a minimum goal difference of two, depending on the betting option you chose. 49/100 are the odds for a two goal margin and 11/9 for a three goal margin. Roma scored 64 goals in 29 matches played and all their last five matches ended in over 2.5 goals. Odds for the match to finish in over 2.5 goals are set at 39/100 and over 3.5 goals at evens.
Bet on Inter
Inter have been in the spotlight lately for their rapid success in the Serie A table. Their recent stumble against Torino stopped them from climbing to fourth place but are still sitting on a European Football spot in sixth place. Inter host Sampdoria next and as expected, they’re the clear favourites. Since betting on Inter to win isn’t the most profitable, you should be considering options such as betting on goals, as the Nerazzurri found the net 16 times in their last five games. From a £10 bet, you’ll potentially earn £32.50 if Inter win with a goal difference of three or more. Think Inter will dominate the match as they’ve been doing in recent performances? Bet on Inter to win both halves, which has odds priced at 21/10. From their last five matches on the road, Sampdoria found the net on three occasions, making both teams to score an interesting option. Odds for both teams to score are currently set at 7/10.
