Top Italy Serie A Matchday 12 Games to Wager On (October 22nd – 23rd)
Napoli -1.5 -125 vs Sassuolo +1.5 -102
- When: Saturday, Oct. 29 at 9:00 am ET
On Oct. 24, Sassuolo played great when beating Hellas Verona 2-1. The victory ended a 2-match losing streak.
Sassuolo’s good times won’t last. On Saturday, the road squad in this faces the league’s top squad. Napoli has won 12 straight. In the last head-to-head, the home chalk beat Sassuolo 6-1.
Soccer Pick: Napoli
Lecce +390 vs Juventus -132
- When: Saturday, Oct. 29 at 12:00 pm ET
Neither squad is playing great soccer. Juventus fell to Benfica in a Champions League match via a 3-2 score in their last.
Juve had won 2 straight before the loss. But the wins were against Torino and Empoli. Also, Juventus lost to Maccabi Haifa in a CL game on Oct. 11.
Lecce isn’t playing well. However, this happens on Lecce’s pitch. Taking a stab against Juventus makes sense.
Soccer Pick: Lecce
Inter Milano -1.5 +140 vs Sampdoria +1.5 +110
- When: Saturday, Oct. 29 at 2:45 pm ET
Sampdoria has turned around their form. The road dog had lost 2-of-3 with a draw against Bologna before their last 2 matches.
But although Sampdoria is on a 2-match winning streak, neither impresses. The road squad required penalty kicks to beat Ascoli in a Coppa Italia match.
Then in their last, Sampdoria beat Cremonese 1-0. Inter should have no trouble covering the handicap.
Soccer Pick: Inter Milano
Empoli +330 vs Atalanta -125
- When: Sunday, Oct. 30 at 7:30 am ET
Juventus blasted Empoli 4-0 in the home underdog’s last. Before the loss, Empoli had beaten Monza.
Atalanta is a much better team than Monza. So Empoli will struggle versus the road chalk. Also, because Lazio dominated Atalanta in the road team’s last, we should expect a bounce back victory.
Soccer Pick: Atalanta
Lazio -1.5 +128 vs Salernitana +1.5 -163
- When: Sunday, Oct. 30 at 1:00 pm ET
Road squad Salernitana shows 2 wins and 3 losses in their last 5. Salernitana beat Spezia 1-0 in their last on Oct. 22.
Lazio has 2 wins and 3 draws in their last 5. Lazio’s form might be on the upswing after an Oct. 22 victory against Atalanta. The handicap odds make Lazio more than playable to win this match by at least 2 goals.
Soccer Pick: Lazio
Torino +260 vs AC Milan +112
- When: Sunday, Oct. 30 at 3:45 pm ET
Road squad AC Milan is playing great soccer. The chalk in this has won 3-of-4. In their last, AC beat Dinamo Zagreb 4-0 in a Champions League match.
But although Milan is on fire, Torino is in good enough form to warrant a look. If the odds difference wasn’t so pronounced, if Torino wasn’t such a home dog, backing AC would make sense. As it stands right now, the home team is the play.
Soccer Pick: Torino
