Friday 29 January

Torino 17/10
Draw 23/10
Fiorentina 16/10

Torino, who are currently 17th on the table, come into this contest without a win in their past four games. They face a Fiorentina team who come into this encounter off the back of a hard-fought victory against Crotone, which saw them move up to 12th on the table. With the hosts not knowing when they might win again, Fiorentina do look to be decent value at 16/10. The away team is the confident selection.

Saturday 30 January

Bologna 32/10
Draw 29/10
AC Milan 15/20

Bologna weren’t disgraced in their last encounter as they lost 2-0 to reigning champions Juventus. That defeat saw them remain 13th on the table. They face log leader’s, AC Milan, who come into this contest off the back of a poor performance, which saw them go down 3-0 to Atalanta at home. With the Rossoneri wanting to bounce back, this should be a tough task for Bologna. AC Milan should be added to all multiples.

Sampdoria 5/1
Draw 7/2
Juventus 5/10

Both teams come into this contest off the back of two good wins. Sampdoria currently sit in 10th place while Juventus are in fourth. With both sides coming into this with confidence, they should not be holding anything back and goals should be promised. Both Teams to Score is the selection here at 15/20.

Inter Milan 1/4
Draw 5/1
Benevento 9/1

Second takes on 11th as Inter Milan face Benevento. The hosts come into this contest after missing out on an opportunity to go top in their last encounter when they drew away at Udinese. They face a Benevento team who are without a win in their last three games. With Inter within touching distance of reaching the summit of the table, while Benevento are in such dismal form, the hosts look a sure bet here.

Sunday 31 January

Spezia 28/10
Draw 21/10
Udinese 11/10

Spezia host Udinese in this lower table clash as the club in 15th spot welcomes the side in 14th. The hosts conceded a last-minute goal when going down 4-3 to Roma. They now face an Udinese side who left Inter Milan frustrated in their last encounter when holding them to a goalless draw. It must, however, be noted that they are without a win in their last nine encounters and should not find it easy being away from home here. Spezia look to be a great value bet at 28/10.

Crotone 19/10
Draw 22/10
Genoa 14/10

Crotone have won once in their past five encounters and find themselves at the foot of the table. They face a Genoa side who come into this at the back off a hard-fought victory against Cagliari. Although the hosts have not been winning so often, they have been scoring goals and with the visitors coming in with confidence, they should put up a fight. Both Teams to Score is the selection at 15/20.

Atalanta 8/10
Draw 38/10
Lazio 3/1

Two in-form teams meet in this encounter as Atalanta host Lazio. Atalanta dismantled log leaders, AC Milan, in their last contest, running out 3-0 winners. They welcome a Lazio side who have won their last five games across all competitions, with four of them being in the league. With both teams in top stride, it promises to be a hard-fought battle and it will be hard to split them. I’m tipping the draw here.

Cagliari 21/10
Draw 5/2
Sassuolo 12/10

Cagliari host Sassuolo in this encounter as the side in 18th spot welcome the side in ninth place. The hosts have lost their last seven games in all competitions and now face a Sassuolo side who are without a win in their last four matches. With the visitors being 16 points above Cagliari on the table, they should be able to find their feet again and win this comfortably. Back Sassuolo here.

Napoli 3/10
Draw 42/10
Parma 74/10

Napoli have been disappointing in their last few games, losing their last two ties. They face a Parma side who are without a win in their last eight encounters. With the quality that Napoli possess, they should be able to bounce back to form and win this quite comfortably. The hosts are tipped at a fairly short price of 3/10.

Roma 13/20
Draw 3/1
Hellas Verona 39/10

Roma won their last game with a last gasp strike in extra time in their last encounter against Spezia, as they ran out 4-3 winners. They square up against a Hellas Verona side who were impressive against Napoli in their last contest as they cruised to a 3-1 victory. With Roma playing at home, they should be able to win this. Put your money on the hosts.

TREBLE @ 4/1
AC Milan Win 15/20
Sassuolo Win 12/10
Napoli Win 3/10
