Top Serie A Games to Watch this Weekend (From Feb. 22nd – 23rd)
Friday, Feb. 26th Match
- Sassuolo +175 / Torino +156
In their last, Torino beat Cagliari 1-0. Sassuolo drew with Bologna in their last. Although this could go either way, the draw entices. Why? That’s what happened the last time Sassuolo and Torino stepped onto the pitch to face each other.

Saturday, Feb. 27th Matches
- Parma +200 / Spezia +143
Neither squad deserves backing. Parma is in terrible form. They’ve lost 4 and drew once in their last 5. Spezia hasn’t played much better. The home team did beat AC Milan on Feb. 13, though. That’s enough of a reason to back Spezia.
Soccer Free Pick: Spezia
- Lazio -143 / Bologna +243
Bologna’s 2 draws, a win, and 2 losses in their last 5 doesn’t inspire. The question regarding Lazio, though, is whether they bounce out of their Champions League match against Bayern on Tuesday well enough to beat the home squad. Our answer? Lazio should.
Soccer Free Pick: Lazio
- Juventus -1 ½ (+136) / Hellas Verona +1 ½ (-192)
Juventus is in terrible form. Porto beat Juvy 2-1 in a Champions League match last week. In the match before, Ronaldo’s team lost 0-1 against Napoli. Hellas Verona is in better form, which is why they’re at -192 on the handicap. But Juventus could get healthy in this game. We’re laying it.

Sunday, Feb. 28th Matches
- Atalanta -181 / Sampdoria +384
Atalanta is back to blasting opponents. On Feb 21, they beat Napoli 4-1. Sampdoria lost their Feb. 20 match 1-0 against Lazio. In the last head-to-head, though, Sampdoria beat Atalanta 3-1. Is that enough of the reason to back the home team? No, but the overlay odds are.
Soccer Free Pick: Sampdoria
- Cagliari +131 / Crotone +171
Crotone has lost 4 straight. Cagliari has lost 3 in a row and 4-of-5. The draw looks promising. But in the last head-to-head match, Cagliari dominated Crotone 4-2. That, along with the decent odds, are enough of a reason to back the road squad.
Soccer Free Pick: Cagliari
- Fiorentina +191 / Udinese +127
Fiorentina played great when beating Sampdoria 3-0 in their last. The road squad also beat the home team in the last face-off. Although Udinese could win this, the odds differential makes Fiorentina the play.

- Genoa +1 ½ (-108) / Inter Milano -1 ½ (-151)
Inter Milano has 3 wins, a draw, and a loss in their last 5. The draw and loss happened against Juventus. Genoa has drawn in their last couple. Before that, they won 3 straight. Give the road team a chance to keep this closer than the handicap.
Soccer Free Pick: Genoa
- Benevento +1 ½ (-133) / Napoli -1 ½ (-104)
Napoli has 3 losses, a win, and a draw in their last 5. The home team is in awful form. But Benevento’s odds on the handicap expect too much. Can Napoli really turn their form around enough to win by 2? We think so.
Soccer Free Pick: Napoli
- AC Milan +181 / AS Roma +135
Serie A’s top match this week pits one team in decent form against a struggling squad. AS Roma has won 3-of-5 with a draw. The lone loss in their last 5 occurred against Juventus. AC Milan has a draw and 2 losses in their last 3. AC Milan could sneak up on Roma, but the home squad offers decent odds. Back Roma.
