Top Serie A Games to Watch this Week (From Apr. 22nd – Apr. 26th)
Thursday, April 22nd Matches
- Atalanta -106 / As Roma +247
Roma is in awful form while Atalanta has played great. The road team in this has won 4-of-5. Roma has a draw and a loss in their last 2. But although Atalanta will play well, the odds make Roma the bet.
Soccer Pick: As Roma
- Lazio +246 / Napoli -104
Lazio is on a 4-match winning streak. They’ve dominated opponents, including beating Benevento 5-3 on April 18. Napoli is in good enough form to win this. But, again, the odds make the home team an underlay. Lazio is worth a look.
Soccer Pick: Lazio
Saturday, April 24th Matches
- Spezia +189 / Genoa +150
Neither squad is in great form. If we go to the head-to-head, Genoa has the edge. The home team in this won the last head-to-head while these two drew in the head-to-head before. Also, Genoa’s two straight losses happened against Juventus and AC Milan. Spezia is a class drop.
Soccer Pick: Genoa
- Crotone +353 / Parma -144
Crotone has lost 5 straight. The underdog in this did beat the home squad in the last head-to-head. Don’t expect Parma has forgotten that match. The home team is in horrible form. They’ll look to get back on track by beating overmatched Crotone.
Soccer Pick: Parma
- Sampdoria +202 / Sassuolo +127
Sampdoria has won 2 straight. Sassuolo heads into the week after beating Hellas Verona 3-1. Both teams are playing decent enough to warrant backing. Sassuolo won the last head-to-head and the victory over Hellas points to a possible positive form reversal.
Soccer Pick: Sassuolo
Sunday, April 25th Matches
- Udinese +120 / Benevento +221
Udinese had lost 3 straight. Then came April 17, and Udinese got healthy with a 2-1 victory against Crotone. But Benevento beat Udinese 2-0 in the last head-to-head. The road team should win. The odds make the home dog an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Benevento
- Juventus -178 / Fiorentina +418
Fiorentina is in terrible form. Not only that, but Juvy bested Fiorentina 3-0 in the last head-to-head. Fiorentina doesn’t have much shot in this. Juventus should have no trouble beating Fiorentina by at least 2 goals. So if MyBookie posts decent handicap odds, consider playing Juvy on the handicap.
Soccer Pick: Juventus
- Hellas Verona +1 ½ (-131) / Inter Milano -1 ½ (-101)
Inter Milano, the team with the most points in Serie A, should have no trouble against Hellas Verona. Inter hasn’t beaten Hellas by more than a goal since 2018, though. Sunday could be the day.
Soccer Pick: Inter Milano
Monday, April 26th Matches
- Napoli -140 / Torino +326
Torino heads into the week on a 2-match winning streak. Napoli is the better team on paper, but they may not play their best on the road versus the scorching home squad. These two drew in the last head-to-head. So Torino is worth a look.
Soccer Pick: Torino
- AC Milan +164 / Lazio +129
Lazio has won 4 straight. Milan has won 3-of-4. AC has a Europa League Semifinal match coming up against Villareal. They may underperform in this because they’ll be thinking about the Europa League semis, making Lazio the play.
Soccer Pick: Lazio
