Saturday 23 November

Atalanta 19/10 
Draw 5/2 
Juventus 27/20 
(16:00)

Atalanta are without a win in their last three matches but will be looking to keep Juventus at bay on Saturday. The Old Lady remain the only unbeaten team in the league with 10 wins and just two draws from 12 games. La Dea have been struggling to find the back of the net in recent weeks. Juve have won their last three games on the spin and will look to build on that.

AC Milan 43/20 
Draw 49/20 
Napoli 12/10 
(19:00)

AC Milan have been dismal of late with two defeats on the bounce, but those losses came against defending champions Juventus and title-hopefuls Lazio. Napoli remain winless in their last four games, including three draws and one loss. This one could go either way and with both sides desperate to get back to winning ways, I’m expecting an exciting game of football. Take Both Teams to Score – Yes – at 7/10.

Torino 34/10 
Draw 26/10 
Inter Milan 8/10 
(21:45)

Torino ended a winless run of six matches before the break with rampant 4-0 victory at Brescia. Hopefully the short interval wouldn’t have taken anything away from that momentum. Inter Milan have been brilliant with 10 wins from 12 games, maintaining a 100 percent win-record on the road. The hosts have won this meeting 1-0 at the Olympic Grande Torino Stadium over the last two seasons. Another tight affair is on the cards. Get on the Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market at 17/20.

Sunday 24 November

Bologna 17/20 
Draw 26/10 
Parma 31/10 
(13:30)

Bologna are just three points above the relegation zone and have been dismal with three consecutive losses. Parma returned to winning ways before the international break with 2-0 home victory over Roma. The Crusaders are looking stronger coming into this content and are expected to dominate proceedings. Back Parma on the Win/Draw Double Chance at 9/10.

Sassuolo 3/1 
Draw 29/10 
Lazio 8/10 
(16:00)

Sassuolo have been poor thus far with just four wins from 11 games and that doesn’t look likely to improve here. Lazio have been in top form with four wins on the trot and will be looking to build on that on Saturday. The last six meetings between these sides have produced 22 goals at an average of 3.6 per game. With that being said, take the Over 2.5 Goals market at 11/20.

Roma 7/20 
Draw 4/1 
Brescia 7/1 
(16:00)

Roma’s three-match winning streak came to an end before the break with a 2-0 defeat at Parma but this will be the perfect opportunity to bounce back to winning ways. Brescia are bottom of the log with eight defeats from 11 matches, scoring 10 goals and conceding double that amount. The Giallorossi have won their last two home games against Napoli and AC Milan – both 2-1 victories – and should make it three in a row. Back Roma on the (-1) Handicap at 9/10.

Hellas Verona 43/20 
Draw 9/4 
Fiorentina 13/10 
(16:00)

Just one point separates these sides. Hellas Verona fought bravely before the break but it wasn’t enough as Inter Milan bagged a narrow 2-1 home win. Fiorentina have been inconsistent at best and have struggled on their travels. The Viola have won the last four meetings against Hellas Verona but the latter have shown much more dominance in recent weeks. The draw is on the cards.

Sampdoria 23/20 
Draw 43/20 
Udinese 51/20 
(19:00)

Sampdoria are placed seventh on the standings with just two wins from 12 games, scoring seven goals and conceding 18 goals. Udinese haven’t been much better but have managed to capitalize on home advantage against some of the weaker teams. Both sides have been terrible in front of goal this season which makes for a low-scoring matchup. The Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market should be backed at 6/10.

Lecce 2/1 
Draw 5/2 
Cagliari 5/4 
(21:45)

Until this point, newly-promoted Lecce have been fighting to stay out of the relegation zone with just two wins from 12 matches. Cagliari, as mentioned above, have been the surprise package this season as they find themselves in the top four after 12 rounds. Before the break, the Islanders smashed Fiorentina 5-2 at home which will be another confidence booster coming into this fixture. The away win is the way to go.

Monday 25 November

SPAL 31/20 
Draw 22/10 
Genoa 18/10 
(21:45)

19th place SPAL are without a win in their last five matches, including three defeats in the process. Genoa come to town, winless on the road, scoring just six goals and conceding 17 times as they border the drop zone. A tight affair is likely but home advantage might just be the difference on Monday night. SPAL are tipped to edge the win.

TREBLE @ 4/1
AC Milan vs Napoli BTTS 7/10
Sassuolo vs Lazio Over 2.5 Goals 11/20
Roma (-1) Handicap 9/10
