Top Italy Serie A Matchday 17 Games to Wager On (January 4th – 8th)

Must Bet Match from Week 17: Fiorentina -142 vs Monza +380

  • When: Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 12:30 pm ET

Home chalk Fiorentina has won 3 with a loss and a draw in their last 5. The loss came against AC Milan via a 2-1 score in a tough contest. 

Monza beat Salernitana 3-0 in their last. But this will be Monza’s first game since the Nov. 13 victory. In the last head-to-head, Fiorentina dusted Monza 3-1. A similar score is possible. 

Soccer Pick: Fiorentina 

Salernitana +228 vs Torino +129

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 8 at 6:30 am ET

Not counting their Wednesday match, Torino has won 3-of-5 with a loss and a draw. The loss came against Bologna. But the loss happened back in early November. In their last, Torino drew 0-0 against AS Roma. 

Salernitana heads into the week on a 3-match losing streak. Torino has won the last two head-to-head matches. The road chalk gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Torino  

Lazio -1.5 +142 vs Empoli +1.5 -183

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 8 at 9:00 am ET

Lazio has won 3 with 2 losses in their last 5. Empoli has won 2-of-3. 

No doubt, the road team in this can keep the score to within a goal loss. But laying -183 for 1.5 goals is tough. Empoli forced a draw in the last head-to-head, a 3-3 match. Another draw is possible. 

Soccer Pick: Draw 

Spezia +159 vs Lecce +191

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 8 at 9:00 am ET

Lecce is on a 2-match winning streak. Spezia won their last but before the victory, the home slight favorite in this had lost 4 straight. 

Lecce won the last head-to-head but it happened in 2021. Also, it was a Coppa Italia match. Spezia gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Spezia  

Sampdoria +1.5 -156 vs Napoli -1.5 +122

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 8 at 12:00 pm ET

Napoli is 4-1 straight up in their last 5. Sampdoria has lost 4 straight. 

No doubt Napoli wins. The question is do they win by more than a goal? The answer is yes. In 3 of the last 5 head-to-head, Napoli has beaten Sampdoria by more than 1 score. Laying the goals makes sense. 

Soccer Pick: Napoli -1.5 

AC Milan -111 vs AS Roma +310 

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 8 at 2:45 pm ET

Sunday’s top Serie A matchup pits a pair of teams playing decent soccer. AC Milan has lost 2-of-3. Both losses were club friendlies. 

If we go back to AC’s last Serie A game, they impressed when beating Fiorentina 2-1. Roma has won 2 straight. Both were friendlies. The home team beat the road squad 3-1 in the last head-to-head. Another 3-1 win may not happen, but AC should get the victory by at least a goal. 

Soccer Pick: AC Milan
