Top Serie A Games to Watch This Weekend (May 8th – May 9th)
Saturday, May 8th Matches
- Bologna +197 / Udinese +131
Neither squad heads into this in excellent form. Udinese has a couple of wins and 3 losses in their last 5. In their last 5, Bologna has 2 losses, a win, and 2 draws. Udinese may have an advantage, though. Not only does this happen on their pitch, but Juventus required a Ronaldo bail out to beat Udinese on May 2.
Soccer Pick: Udinese
- Napoli -185 / Spezia +395
Since a 3-2 victory against Crotone on April 10, Spezia hasn’t played great. The home team in this has lost 2 and drawn twice in their last 4 games. But Napoli drew against Cagliari in their last. The draw happened on Napoli’s pitch. Perhaps, the road favorite’s form is due to for a negative turn.
Soccer Pick: Spezia
- Sampdoria +604 / Inter Milano -270
In Italy Serie A, top team on the standings Inter Milano is almost unbeatable. But on May 8, Inter battles Sampdoria, a team that has won 4-of-5. Not only that, but Milano fell to Sampdoria 2-1 in the last head-to-head. No doubt, Inter should turn the tables. The odds make Sampdoria a massive overlay, though, and the way to score profits is to back overlay teams.
Soccer Pick: Sampdoria
- Lazio -101 / Fiorentina +231
Since a 5-2 loss to Napoli on April 22, Lazio has played as if they’re on a mission. The road squad in this dominated AC Milan 3-0 on April 26. In their next match on May 2, Lazio beat Genoa 4-3. Fiorentina is in decent form having drawn in their last couple. But Lazio is playing great. The -101 are fair odds.
Soccer Pick: Lazio
Sunday, May 9th Matches
- Sassuolo +122 / Genoa +200
Sassuolo is as hot as can be. They’ve won 4-of-5 with the draw happening against top Serie A squad Atalanta. Genoa has lost 3-of-5. Sassuolo beat Genoa 2-1 in the last head-to-head. The road squad takes this.
Soccer Pick: Sassuolo
- Cagliari +114 / Benevento +202
Benevento is a mess. They’ve drawn, versus Genoa on April 21, and lost 4 in their last 5. Cagliari shows 3 wins and a draw in their last 5. So although Benevento won the last head-to-head, the road squad is the play.
Soccer Pick: Cagliari
- Torino +152 / Hellas Verona +150
Hellas Verona finally did something halfway positive. Hellas had been on a 4-match winning streak, but on May 1, they drew with Spezia. Torino lost their last on April 26. These two have drawn in 3 straight going back to 2019. Either team could win. This could also end in another draw.
Soccer Pick: Draw
- Atalanta -1 ½ (-135) / Parma +1 ½ (-102)
Parma has lost 4 straight. Atalanta beat Parma 3-0 earlier in the year on January 6. Parma could play well enough to keep this close. More than likely, they won’t.
Soccer Pick: Atalanta
- Crotone +1 ½ (-116) / As Roma -1 ½ (-117)
Crotone is the worst team in Serie A. As of May 2, Crotone has 18 points. Their opponent on Sunday, As Roma, has 55 points. The fact the odds are so close on the handicap tells us how bad Roma’s form has become. Crotone beat Parma 4-3 on April 24. Roma should come out ahead. They won’t beat the road underdog by more than a goal, though.
Soccer Pick: Crotone
- AC Milan +289 / Juventus -131
The odds in AC Milan versus Juventus make Ronaldo’s squad a massive underlay. Ronaldo scored a late goal versus Udinese for Juvy to win their last match. AC Milan’s form isn’t bad. Juventus beat the road team in this 3-1 in the last head-to-head. Still, the odds make ACM an overlay. And, again, we want to back teams offering overlay odds.
Soccer Pick: AC Milan
