Take a look at our betting preview and decide what games you want to place wagers on, as AC Milan hosts Napoli and Sampdoria goes up against Inter.
• Boateng trains with Milan at the moment
• Inter look to continue fine form
• As Roma still unable to reach the top
Palermo will face AS Roma on Saturday in what should be an uncertain match. The Sicilians will be the hosts, however Roma is not always the best side while playing away from the capital. Inter will travel to play against Sampdoria, and looking at their current crop of players and form, they should be able to pull off a win.
AC Milan hosts Napoli on Sunday as well, and this is the game that people would normally want to see, however the Rossoneri have been underperforming for some time. Due to their results, mobile betting providers do not favour Milan for the upcoming match.
AS Roma faces a test against Palermo away
AS Roma finished the Serie A season second on the table, due to Juventus’ dominance almost all throughout the year. Now that the Turin club is underperforming, Roma is still not able to take advantage of that to claim the summit of the league. They sit in 6th spot with 11 points (3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss). It world in their favour that Palermo have recently hit a bad run, collecting three successive losses.
Bet365 Sportsbook strongly favours the capital side 1.95 (10/11), whereas a win for the Palermo stands at a high 4.00 (3/1), despite being the hosts for the match. Roma will most likely win this encounter, so a draw 3.50 (5/2) is not likely. If you strongly believe that they have the capacity to win the league, then Bet365 offers 3.25 (9/4) for them to win the league at the end. This might be a possibility if they manage to find their form.
Inter visits Sampdoria
Sampdoria vs Inter should be a solid match. More importantly, this is perhaps the game that might be a sure thing for the visiting side. Inter are favorites to win 2.00 (1/1), thanks to their great performance this season under manager Roberto Mancini who lead them to the top of the league. So far, they have won five out of six games, and the last four wins are all in a row. It seems as if they have been truly invigorated with the return of Mancini, who managed them previously from 2004-08.
Sampdoria on the other hand are heavy underdogs 3.75 (11/4), while a draw stands at 3.50 (5/2). They occupy 9th position with 10 points so far, and over the last four games they have shifted between wins and losses, recording two of each. So it’s obvious that Inter have been dealt much better chances by online sportsbooks in Italy.
AC Milan hosts Napoli and Boateng looks to possibly re-join them
This Sunday, AC Milan hosts Napoli as they aim to get back to former glory. The Rossoneri are far from a team that they once used to be, when they competed in the biggest arenas and boasted some of the world’s finest players. However, now against Napoli they are deemed as underdogs on their home ground 2.75 (7/4). Judging by their recent performances, even that is too optimistic.
Napoli are in fact one place above Milan, in 10th spot. They have recorded two wins, three draws and one loss until this point. They have struggled even against lower sides like Capri and Empoli, but Bet365 ranks them a cut above Milan. Their odds are 2.60 (8/5), but considering the performances of both sides so far, a tie is the most probable event 3.30 (23/10).
Recently, rumours have also emerged that Kevin-Prince Boateng may be returning to Milan, as he is currently training with them. He may actually help them in getting some crucial points, if they decide to sign him. Gambling news will definitely be looking out to see how this deal evolves.
