- When: Saturday, Dec. 19 – Sunday, Dec. 20
Saturday, Dec. 19th Matches
- Hellas Verona +209 / Fiorentina +120
It’s difficult to understand why Hellas is the underdog in this match. Opposing soccer squads have outscored Fiorentina a combined 6-1 in their last 3 games. Hellas Verona beat Lazio 2-1 in their last match. We’re taking the better odds.
Soccer Free Pick: Hellas Verona
- Crotone +318 / Sampdoria -129
Sampdoria has a draw and 4 losses in their last 5. But they take on Crotone as the favorite because Sampdoria is at home. There’s no way Crotone makes it 2 in a row, they won their last, but it’s tough to back Sampdoria at the odds. The draw entices.
Soccer Free Pick: Draw
- Juventus -1 ½ (-102) / Parma Calcio +1 ½ (-129)
Is Juventus a goal and a half better than Parma? It doesn’t look like. Parma has drawn in their last couple of games. They even scored 2 goals against AC Milan in their last match to secure the draw. Juventus will win, but they’re likely to win by a single goal, not 2 or more.
Soccer Free Pick: Parma Calcio
Sunday, Dec. 20th Matches
- Bologna +141 / Torino +170
In the last couple of head-to-head matches, Torino has a win and a draw. Bologna gets class relief in this match, though, after bumping up against Inter Milano and AS Roma. Still, Torino looks solid for the victory since they play this on their pitch.
Soccer Free Pick: Torino
- Udinese +116 / Cagliari +214
Udinese is on fire. They’ve won 3-of-4. One of the victories was a sweet 3-1 beat down of tough Lazio. They should have no trouble beating Cagliari even if they must travel to their opponent’s stadium.
Soccer Free Pick: Udinese
- Genoa +208 / Benevento +122
Neither squad is in great form. Also, these two haven’t faced off since 2018. It’s difficult to know which team has the real edge. Genoa gets the call because even though Benevento is the home squad, Genoa offers the much better odds.
Soccer Free Pick: Genoa
- AC Milan +133 / Sassuolo +299
ACM has 4 wins and a draw in their last 5. But Sassuolo is a home team that offers close to +300 odds. Yes, we know, but although the odds are great on the underdog, the +133 on the much better team makes them the play.
Soccer Free Pick: AC Milan
- Spezia +2 (-133) / Inter Milano -2 (+100)
Spezia has lost their last couple while Inter has won 4-of-5. Giving up 2 goals is difficult. Then again, Inter Milano should roll and they’re offering even money.
Soccer Free Pick: Inter Milano
- AS Roma +200 / Atalanta -122
Atalanta beat AS Roma 2-1 in the last head-to-head. In the match before the last, Atalanta beat Roma 2-0. The chalk takes this.
Soccer Free Pick: Atalanta
- Napoli +114 / Lazio +206
Although Lazio is a very good Serie A squad, they’re run into a rough patch. Lazio has a single win in their last 5. They did draw with Club Brugge and Dortmund in their last couple of Champions League matches, though. Napoli has 3 wins and 2 draws in their last five. Napoli should win, but Lazio offers the better odds. We’ll take the better odds.
