Top 2022 Serie A Matchday 1 Games Betting Analysis & Odds for Each Match

Serie A’s Matchday 1 kicks off on Saturday when three of the best teams in Italy’s top soccer league throw down. AC Milan, Atalanta, and Inter Milano are all in action on August 13. Then on August 14, Roma, Juventus, and Napoli play their first league matches. See below for Serie A odds, analysis, and free picks for six of this weekend’s top Serie A matches. 

Top Italy Serie A Matchday 1 Games to Wager On (August 13th – 15th)

Udinese Calcio +1.5 -142 vs AC Milan -1.5 +112

  • When: Saturday, August 13 at 10:30 am ET

Udinese’s first match this season was a Coppa Italia contest versus FeralpiSalo. Udinese played well enough for a 2-1 victory. 

On Saturday, though, Udinese faces one of the favorites to win Serie A. Milan showed how good of a soccer club they could be this season in a 6-1 club friendly victory over Vincenza on August 6. AC covers.

Soccer Pick: AC Milan -1.5 

Atalanta BC -112 vs Sampdoria Genoa +295

  • When: Saturday, August 13 at 10:30 am ET

On August 5, Sampdoria beat Reggina 1-0 in an Italia Coppa Italia match. But like Udinese versus AC Milan, Sampdoria must play much better if they expect to beat their Saturday opponent. 

Atalanta finished last season losing 2 straight. The favored road squad in this hopes to get things going on the right tack with a victory in their first league match. Atalanta blasted Sampdoria 4-0 in the last head-to-head in February. Neither squad has changed much since then. The road chalk prevails.   

Soccer Pick: Atalanta  

Inter Milano -1.5 -123 vs US Lecce +1.5 -103

  • When: Saturday, August 13 at 12:45 pm ET

Inter Milano isn’t playing great soccer. But although Inter shows a couple of draws and 2 losses in their last 4, the losses and draws happened in club friendly games.

We should expect Inter to play much better soccer on August 13. Lecce fell in their first Coppa Italia match. Serie B squad Cittadella beat Lecce 3-2. The chalk can cover. 

Soccer Pick: Inter Milano -1.5 

AS Roma -1.5 +135 vs US Salernitana +1.5 -173

  • When: Sunday, August 14 at 12:45 pm ET

Like Lecce, Salernitana didn’t start their Italia Coppa Italia season off the right way. Parma, a Serie B squad like Cittadella, upset Salernitana 2-0.

Losing Parma wasn’t terrible. Parma played in Serie A last season. But losing to Parma by 2 goals suggests the home team in this is overmatched. Roma heads into this after a couple of club friendly victories over Tottenham and Shakhtar Donetsk. 

In the last head-to-head, Salernitana lost by a goal, but the chalk can win this by at least 2. The handicap odds on Roma make the road team the play.  

Soccer Pick: AS Roma -1.5  

SSC Napoli +112 vs Hellas Verona +230

  • When: Monday, August 15 at 10:30 am ET

The first of 2 Matchday 1 contests on Monday, Hellas Verona is a home underdog versus one of Serie A’s best clubs, Napoli. 

The home dog doesn’t head into his playing their best soccer. Hellas has lost 3-of-4 with a draw. We’d make a case for the home team, but the 4-1 loss to Serie B squad on August 7 suggests Napoli rolls. 

Soccer Pick: SSC Napoli 

Sassuolo Calcio +1.5 -145 vs Juventus Turin -1.5 +114

  • When: Monday, August 15 at 12:45 pm ET

This could be a tough match for Juve. The home favorites has won the last couple of head-to-head matches, but they didn’t win either by more than a goal.

Not only that, but Juventus hasn’t played well in their recent club friendlies. But Maximiliano Allegri signed players to Turin who will excel in his system. Juventus can pull off the 2-goal victory.  

Soccer Pick: Juventus -1.5
