Saturday 20 June

Torino 23/20
Draw 23/10
Parma 24/10
(19:30)

No team needed the Covid-19 break more than Torino, who were enduring a seven-match losing streak across all competitions. Moreno Longo's men are looking to make amends against a Parma side who are currently punching above their weight, lying in ninth position. This is their second season in the elite league since gaining promotion at the end of the 2017/18 season. Last season they finished 14th and they look destined to better that in the current campaign. Why not back the visitors! 

Verona 11/10
Draw 47/20
Cagliari 5/2
(21:45)

Verona have been reporting that training behind closed doors is going very well. The team has just unveiled a new logo which they will start using on the 1st of July. They were unbeaten in four consecutive games prior the break, conceding two goals in the process which can be attributed to their defensive tactics. On the other hand, Cagliari come into this one off the back of a 12-match winless run, which has seen them plummet to 12th on the standings. I foresee a Verona win here.

Sunday 21 June

Atalanta 7/20
Draw 9/2
Sassuolo 13/2
(19:30)

Fourth-placed Atalanta are currently the form team having won six and drawn one of the last seven games across all competitions. This includes victories over teams like Valencia and AS Roma. They come up against Sassuolo who occupy 11th place on the Serie A standings. The visitors had started gaining some momentum before the break as they had won three of their last five league games. Both sides are playing well but I’ll lean towards Atalanta.

Inter Milan 7/20
Draw 39/10
Sampdoria 7/1
(21:45)

Inter drew 1-1 with Napoli in the Copa Italia semi-finals which saw them crash out of the tournament on aggregate. Antonio Conte’s men are still dreaming about winning the league title as they are nine points off the pace with a game in hand. By a way of contrast, Sampdoria are fighting for survival with just a single point being the difference between them and Lecce who are in the relegation zone. The hosts should have no problem collecting maximum points here.

QUAD @ 13/1
Parma 24/10
Verona 11/10
Atalanta 7/20
Inter 7/20
