Top Serie A Games to Watch this Weekend (From Jan. 9th – 11th)

Saturday, Jan. 9th Matches

  • Atalanta -185 / Benevento +397

Atalanta has 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5. AC Milan beat Benevento 2-0 in their last game. Benevento had won 2 straight before the loss, though. The home dog is worth backing at the odds. 

Soccer Free Pick: Benevento 

  • Bologna +138 / Genoa +193

Bologna has played in 4 straight draws, making an even match in regulation a decent play. But Genoa gets their rivals on their pitch. They also dominated Bologna by 3 goals in the last head-to-head. The better odds completes the package.  

Soccer Free Pick: Genoa 

  • Torino +1 ½ (-142) / AC Milan -1 ½ (+106)

Torino put a 3-0 beating onto Parma in their last. The goal and a half makes them tough in this. AC Milan is on fire, though. They’ve won their last 3 over Sassuolo, Lazio, and Benevento. Milan beat Benevento 2-0 on January 3. The better odds makes AC Milan the play on the handicap.

Sunday, Jan. 10th Matches 

  • Inter Milano +133 / AS Roma +184

In the weekend’s top Serie A match, third-place AS Roma hosts second-place Inter Milano. In July, these two drew. Don’t expect a draw on Sunday. Roma is good enough to beat Inter, especially at home, but the road favorites are on fire. Inter has won 5 in a row and 8 of 9 with the other game a draw versus Shakthar Donetsk in a Champions League match. Inter Milano takes this.

  • Crotone +318 / Hellas Verona -131

On January 3, Hellas Verona got back on the winning track with a 1-0 victory over Spezia. Verona should have no trouble beating Crotone in regulation on Sunday. Inter dominated Crotone 6-2 in the underdog’s last. It could take a couple of games for Crotone to shed the bad mojo from that loss.

Soccer Free Pick: Hellas Verona 

  • Napoli -117 / Udinese +289

The home team has suffered two straight losses, not good heading into a match with Napoli. The road favorites are fourth on the Serie A Standings. They should have no trouble handing Udinese a third straight loss.

Soccer Free Pick: Napoli 

  • Cagliari +246 / Fiorentina -103

A couple of games ago, Fiorentina beat Juventus 3-0. Although they followed up the win with a draw versus Bologna, Firoentina figures to get the victory here. Cagliari has lost 2 in a row and 3-of-5.   

Soccer Free Pick: Fiorentina

  • Sassuolo +1 (+100) / Juventus -1 (-133)

On January 3, Atalanta pummeled Sassuolo 5-1. These two have drawn in the last couple of head-to-head matches. But Juvy is on a mission. They fell to fifth place after the loss to Fiorentina. Ronaldo and his mates won’t let another terrible Serie A rival embarrass them. 

Soccer Free Pick: Juventus 

Monday, Jan. 11th Match

  • Sampdoria +150 / Spezia +179

Spezia is a mess. So is Sampdoria, though. Neither team inspires confidence on the moneyline or handicap. The draw offers decent odds and even though Sampdoria should win, Spezia is the home team. We’re going with the draw. 

Soccer Free Pick: Draw
