Italy Serie A – Final Season Matches on May 22 – May 23
Saturday, May 22nd Matches
- Genoa +206 / Cagliari +108
Home squad Cagliari is in better form than Genoa. Cagliari has 3 draws and a win in their last four. Genoa has 3 losses and a win in their last 4. There’s no reason to go against the home team because the odds are fair.
Soccer Pick: Cagliari
- Fiorentina +100 / Crotone +200
Both Crotone and Fiorentina have a draw, a win, and a loss in their last 3. But even though these two show similar form, Fiorentina is the play. The road squad has won the last two head-to-head matches.
Soccer Pick: Fiorentina
- Parma +222 / Sampdoria -111
Parma is on a 5-match losing streak. Sampdoria has won the last couple of head-to-head matches. It’s never fun laying more than even money, but Parma has a worse shot of winning this than the +222 odds indicate.
Soccer Pick: Sampdoria
Sunday, May 23rd Matches
- Udinese +399 / Inter Milano -222
Juventus beat Inter Milano in their last. The match happened after Inter had already won the Serie A title. Milano may take it easy in this match. It means nothing to them. To Udinese, it means a lot. If Udinese can upset Inter on the road, they’ll have something to hang their cleats on heading into next season. Give the road squad a shot.
Soccer Pick: Udinese
- AC Milan +158 / Atalanta +135
Atalanta has 4 wins and a draw in their last 5. AC Milan has 3 wins and a draw in their last 4. Atalanta won the last head-to-head 3-0, but the match happened in January, before AC Milan hit their stride. AC can get it done.
Soccer Pick: Milan
- Juventus -1 ½ (-107) / Bologna +1 ½ (-120)
Juvy wants to end the Serie A season on a high-note. Juventus has won 3-of-4. The chalk has won 2 in a row and beat Inter Milano 3-2 in their last. Bologna will fight, but Juventus is more than capable of covering this handicap.
Soccer Pick: Juventus
- Hellas Verona +1 ½ (+100) / Napoli -1 ½ (-131)
The home team in this is on fire. Napoli has won 4-of-5 with a draw. Hellas has 3 draws and 2 losses in their last 5. Napoli can cover the handicap, but the odds force us to back Hellas. -131 and giving up a goal and a half asks too much.
Soccer Pick: Napoli
- Lazio +183 / Sassuolo +110
Sassuolo’s form is slightly better than Lazio’s. The road squad has lost 2-of-3 while Sassuolo has won 2-of-3. Lazio and Sassuolo split the last couple of head-to-head matches. Lazio offers overlay odds considering the home team doesn’t have a huge edge.
Soccer Pick: Lazio
- As Roma -166 / Spezia +326
On May 15, Spezia beat Torino 4-1. Spezia should carry momentum from the victory into this. But As Roma is in awesome form. The road favorites have won 4-of-5, including beating Manchester United 3-2 on May 6.
Soccer Pick: As Roma
- Benevento +259 / Torino -128
Benevento has lost 4-of-5. The road squad’s lone positive match was a draw against Crotone on May 16. Torino isn’t in good form. This is one of those soccer matches where home pitch could mean something. Laying it on Torino.
Soccer Pick: Torino
