Top Italy Serie A Matchday 11 Games to Wager On (October 22nd – 23rd)
AC Milan -1.5 +103 vs Monza +1.5 -131
- When: Saturday, Oct. 22 at 12:00 pm ET
At first glance, it looks as if AC Milan has the win in the bag. But a closer look reveals that Monza has won 4-of-5. So AC’s 3 wins in their last 5 doesn’t impress much.
The home team’s 2 losses happened versus Premier League power Chelsea in Champions League matches. AC Milan has won their last 3 Serie A games. 1 of the wins was a 2-0 contest versus Juventus. Backing Milan to cover the handicap makes sense.
Soccer Pick: AC Milan
Fiorentina +260 vs Inter Milano +107
- When: Saturday, Oct. 22 at 2:45 pm ET
Two teams that appear headed in opposite directions throw down when Inter travels to Fiorentina. The home underdog has won 2 with a loss and a draw in their last 5.
Inter Milano has won 3-of-4 with a draw. The draw happened in a 3-3 match against La Liga squad Barcelona. Inter has turned it around. At +107, the road chalk is an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Inter Milano
Udinese +102 vs Torino +285
- When: Sunday, Oct. 23 at 6:30 am ET
Udinese heads into this after a loss. But before writing off the home squad it’ important to note that Monza beat Udinese and Monza is loaded.
Torino shows 3 losses, a draw, and a win in their last 5. The road dog may have turned their form around while Udinese’s form may be headed south. The dog is worth a look.
Soccer Pick: Torino
Bologna +119 vs Lecce +255
- When: Sunday, Oct. 23 at 9:00 am ET
Bologna isn’t playing well. The home chalk has lost 3 of their last 4 with a draw. The draw occurred versus Sampdoria.
Right now, it’s impossible to back Bologna no matter where the match takes place. So although Bologna has won the last couple of head-to-head matches, Lecce is the play.
Soccer Pick: Lecce
Atalanta -101 vs Lazio +265
- When: Sunday, Oct. 23 at 12:00 pm ET
Atalanta has won 3 with a couple of draws in their last 5. The home team in this is 2 points behind Napoli on the Serie A Standings.
Lazio isn’t playing bad soccer, but the road team is up against it. The +265 choice has drawn twice in their last couple of matches. Atalanta offers fair odds while Lazio offers overlay odds. But it’s tough to go against the home team. Playing the draw makes sense.
Soccer Pick: Draw
AS Roma +187 vs Napoli +140
- When: Sunday, Oct. 23 at 2:45 pm ET
It’s tempting to back Roma because this happens on their pitch. But Napoli is dominating opponents.
The road team is on a 5-match winning streak. 2 of the victories were a 6-1 and 4-2 beating of Ajax Amsterdam in a couple of CL matches. At the odds, Napoli is more than playable.
Soccer Pick: Napoli
