Top Italy Serie A Matchday 18 Games to Wager On

Genoa +1 ½ -144 vs Lazio -1 ½ +109

  • When: Friday, Dec. 17

Both teams show just a single win in their last 5 matches. The difference is that Lazio has also drawn in 3-of-5 while Genoa has lost 3-of-5. 

Lazio won the last head-to-head 4-3. Before that, these two drew 1-1. Genoa won their last match, which might be a sign they’re back to playing their best soccer. Genoa’s best soccer means a draw against Lazio. 

Soccer Pick: Draw   

Inter Milano -1 ½ -175 vs Salernitana +1 ½ +131

  • When: Friday, Dec. 17

The team Genoa beat in their last match, Salernitana, shows up as a huge home dog versus defending Serie A champion Inter Milano. 

Milano’s lone loss in their last 5 was versus Real Madrid in a Champions League match. Real is one of the best club teams on the planet. 

It’s tempting to side with Salernitana. But Inter’s last 4 wins were by at least 2 goals. Milano likely takes this by 3 or 4. 

Soccer Pick: Inter Milano

AS Roma +340 vs Atalanta -147

  • When: Saturday, Dec. 18

Atalanta has won 4-of-5. The only blemish is a Champions League loss to Villareal.

But although Atlanta looks strong, the home squad offers underlay odds. AS Roma is the much better play. The road team has won 2 straight. So there is a reason to back Roma even though this happens on Atalanta’s pitch. AS gets the call. 

Soccer Pick: AS Roma  

Juventus Turin -119 vs Bologna +295

  • When: Saturday, Dec. 18

Once in a while Bologna can play a great match. Even if they play a great match on Saturday, though, they’re bound to lose to Juventus.

Juvy drew 1-1 with Venezia in their last. Before the draw, Juvy had won 3 straight. On May 23 this year, Juventus dropped Bologna 4-1. Expect a second straight multiple goal victory.

Soccer Pick: Juventus   

Sassuolo +270 vs Fiorentina -117

  • When: Sunday, Dec. 19

The most sought after player during this January’s transfer window will be Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic. The 21-year-old has 15 goals in 17 matches. 

He should get at least 1 goal on Sunday. Sassuolo is a decent team, but Fiorentina is on fire. The home squad has won 4 straight. At -117, Fiorentina is an overlay. 

Soccer Pick: Fiorentina  

Napoli +200 vs AC Milan +123

  • When: Sunday, Dec. 19

At the beginning of the season, it looked as if Napoli might run away with the title. Things have changed big time.

Napoli heads into this having won 2-of-5 with 2 losses and a draw. Things have gotten so bad that overmatched Empoli upset Napoli in the road team’s last.

AC Milan is just a point behind Inter for the top spot on the Serie A standings. We must assume Milan steps it up on their pitch. 

Soccer Pick: AC Milan
