Friday 17 December

Lazio 4/10
Draw 38/10
Genoa 6/1

After the flying start that Lazio enjoyed the beginning of the season, they have been in a poor run of form and now face a Genoa side who have lost their last three on the bounce. With 15 points separating the hosts from the visitors in this encounter, Lazio should really bounce back to winning ways in this encounter. Banker the hosts!

Salernitana 11/1
Draw 56/10
Inter Milan 1/5

Salernitana have found it difficult in the Serie A this season thus far and find themselves at the bottom of the table. They face the reigning champions in this encounter and they will find it extremely hard. Inter do look like they have found top stride and should really dominate this encounter. The value is Inter Milan 14/10 on the (-2) Handicap.

Saturday 18 December

Atalanta 15/20
Draw 3/1
Roma 31/10

Atalanta’s last loss in the Italian Serie A came on the 3rd of October. They now face a Roma side who come into this after a comfortable win against Spezia. With Atalanta being in such good form, Roma manager Jose Mourinho will do everything possible to nullify there attacking threat. With that being said, I’m tipping the Half-Time Draw 15/10.

Bologna 3/1
Draw 22/10
Juventus 17/20 

Bologna come into the clash off the back of two losses in a row and face a Juventus side who were held to a disappointing draw to Venezia in their last game. With Bologna being at home, they should make it difficult for their opponents but with Juventus’ class they should really get the job done here. At 17/20 you can banker the away team and it should give you a boost in all your multiples.

Cagliari 2/1
Draw 23/10
Udinese 13/10

Cagliari face Udinese in this encounter, both teams have been dismal for large parts of the season and find themselves towards the lower part of the table. With both teams in poor form, a win here is really a must for both of them. With that being said, I’m going for over 2.5 goals in this encounter 17/20.

Sunday 19 December

Fiorentina 9/10
Draw 27/10
Sassuolo 28/10

Fiorentina have been ultra-impressive in their last few games, winning four out of their last five and now host a Sassuolo team who are undefeated in their last five matches. With Fiorentina being in such good form and being at home, they do like we can banker them here 9/10.

Spezia 14/10
Draw 26/10
Empoli 17/10

Spezia have lost four of their last five and find themselves in a terrible run of form, they face an Empoli side who have lost three of their last four and find themselves 14 points ahead of them on the table. Empoli do look good value here at 17/10. Back the away team!

Sampdoria 8/10
Draw 27/10
Venezia 31/10

Sampdoria just got back to winning ways in their last game winning 3-1 to Genoa, they face a Venezia side who haven’t won in their last four. In these bottom of the table matches, anything can happen and it does promise to be tight and for that reason, I am tipping the Half-Time Draw at 13/10.

Torino 12/10
Draw 23/10
Hellas Verona 22/10

Torino host Verona in this encounter, the hosts got back to winning ways last time and they face a Verona side who have been battling courageously in their last two games winning 4-3 and 2-1. This does look like one of those games that go either way and with that being said, I am going with the value and tipping Hellas Verona at 22/10.

AC Milan 13/10
Draw 24/10
Napoli 2/1

TREBLE @ 10/1
Juventus Win 17/20
Fiorentina Win 9/10
Hellas Verona Win 22/10
