Enjoy all the thrills from Serie A this weekend as matchday 24 is set to get underway tonight, with the rest of the games being played all throughout the weekend.
Juventus is scheduled to defend its lead tonight against Atalanta, and judging by the Turin side’s performances on their own ground they are set for a rather easy game which should see them claim the all-important 3 points. Italian gambling news reports that Sampdoria will play against Genoa at home tomorrow which will provide them with confidence to go out and seal a win.
Lazio will face a test at home in the form of Palermo who will be looking to steal away a victory , however the hosts might endure some challenging times during the game if their results are anything to go by. AS Roma will go head to head with Verona away, but considering the differences between the two sides the club from the capital should be able to win this game.
Juventus vs Atalanta and Sampdoria vs Genoa
For the past 4 years Juventus have been unstoppable winning league title after league title. When Antonio Conte left the Old Lady in 2014, some football critics have voiced their concerns about the possible change in fortunes for the club. However, new manager Massimiliano Allegri has managed to replicate the same results with Juventus and they are now on course to win their 4th consecutive Serie A title.
• Sampdoria will aim to beat Genoa at home
• Juventus set for another win against Atalanta
• AS Roma will play Hallas Verona away
So it is fair to say that Atalanta don’t stand any sort of a chance 19.00 (18/1) against Juventus considering their lackluster performances all throughout the season. They sit in 17th place with 23 points and have a form that is quite bad (2 wins and 3 losses over last 5 games). That is why Bet365 has branded the Turin side the absolute favorites 1.17 (1/6), while an unlikely draw has been set at 7.00 (6/1).
Sampdoria stand in 7th position with 35 points overall and their record at home is not that convincing given that they have won on 5 occasions while the rest of games ended in 6 draws. Their form throughout the last 5 matches resulted in 4 draws and only 1 win, which is the reason why mobile betting providers have set a draw at 3.20 (11/5) for their upcoming game against Genoa.
The visiting side have been dealt underdog odds of 3.20 (11/5) due to their standing on the table (6th) and their away record of 5 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. Since Sampdoria will be playing at home for this tie betting enthusiasts will perhaps benefit most from placing a bet on them. Bet365 believes that the hosts will be able to pull off a win 2.38 (11/8) against Genoa.
Lazio vs Palermo and Verona vs AS Roma
Lazio currently occupy 4th place on the table and are pushing with everything they have to break into the top 4 spots in the league. while playing on their home pitch they have achieved a staggering 7 wins, however they have also blundered on several occasion losing 4 times. Their form over the last 5 encounters has seen them win only twice while the rest of the games ended in 3 losses.
Palermo are not far behind them on the table as they sit in 8th place with an overall of 33 points. On the road they haven’t been effective in sealing wins as they could only manage one victory whereas the other matches ended in 5 draws and also 5 losses. Bet365 does not hold them in high regard 6.00 (5/1) and have therefore awarded Lazio the preferential chances 1.60 (3/5) for this encounter.
And finally for part I we will finish off with the game between Hallas Verona and AS Roma. The hosts sit in 16th position with only 24 points in total and maintain a form that is quite bad (4 losses and only 1 win). At home they have notched 4 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, which has propelled online sportsbooks in Italy to give them odds of 5.00 (4/1).
AS Roma are the only team in Serie A that can come closest to leaders Juventus. They find themselves in 2nd place with 47 points , however over the last 5 games they form has dropped having won only 1 game while the rest of them resulted in 4 draws. Nevertheles, Bet365 favors 1.75 (3/4) them to win this encounter due to their better standing and overall performance, while an unlikely draw has been set at 3.60 (13/5).
