Let’s take a look at the second batch of games set to be played in round 33 of the Italian football league.

Juventus are primed to lift the Serie A title for an impressive fourth consecutive time. The team is composed of a great group of players that can inflict damage to opponents at any given time. It is only a matter of time before they are officially announced as the winners, so they will have the chance to fully concentrate on their efforts on the Champions League semi-finals.

• Lazio go head to head with Parma
• Palermo will host Torino
• AS Roma face Sassuolo away

Gambling news reports that second placed Lazio will square off against Parma at home where they should have no problem clinching a comfortable win. Palermo will host Torino in a cool match, while Verona will try to do everything in their power to overcome Sampdoria on the road. And lastly, AS Roma will play Sassuolo away from home in what should be another easy victory.

Lazio vs Parma and Palermo vs Torino

Lazio Parma

Lazio have put on some very impressive performances in the top flight of Italian football this season. They managed to usurp cross town rivals AS Roma by overtaking them for the second place, after collecting a total of 59 points from 33 games. At home they achieved some great results, which saw them clinch a staggering 11 wins, while suffering only 1 draw and 4 losses in the process.

Therefore, it makes sense that Bet365 favors them to win against Parma in tonight’s game, assigning them odds of 1.25 (1/4). The traveling team on the other hand are viewed as complete outsiders 15.00 (14/1) due to their dire ranking on the chart (20) with only 16 points to their name so far this campaign. A tie between them stands at a great 5.50 (9/2), an even that does not look to be on the cards.

Palermo Torino

Palermo will play Torino at home tonight, which should provide them with the necessary support to win as they will be playing in front of their own fans. Mobile betting providers have decided to award them favorite odds 2.60 (8/5) since they are familiar with their turf. At the moment they occupy 11th position on the table with an overall of 41 points from 32 encounters. Their home stats are pretty decent (8 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses) considering their limited means.

Torino will therefore face a difficult challenge against them, judging by their recent performances. Now they sit in 9th place after accumulating 47 points, while their form has been lackluster (2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss). Despite their uncertain results, mobile sports betting sites have assigned them odds of 2.80 (9/5). A tie is perhaps the safest bet for this sort of an encounter, with odds being 3.20 (11/5).

Sampdoria vs Verona and Sassuolo vs AS Roma

Sampdoria Verona

Sampdoria is preparing to host Verona at 20:45 CET tonight what should be an easy victory for the former side. They are the favorites to win 1.62 (5/8) thanks to their better records in the league. Currently they stand in 5th spot with an overall of 50 points, although their form in the last 5 encounters has been pretty bad, which saw them record 2 losses , 2 draws and manage only 1 win.

Luckily for them Hellas Verona are all the way down in 12th position. During the last 5 matches, they blundered a few times notching 2 losses and 1 tie, however in the latter games they were able to record 2 victories against Fiorentina and Sassuolo. Their chances of making a difference in the game and clinching an important win are that of an underdog 6.00 (5/1). A tie for the match has been set at 3.80 (14/5).

Sassuolo AS Roma

And finally, the last match that we will cover from round 33 is the one between Sassuolo and AS Roma. The former team are 15th on the table after getting 36 points through their efforts. They won on 5 occasion while playing on their own ground, however they also lest their fans disappointed many times by recording 7 draws and 3 losses in the process.

AS Roma seemed like the only side that could keep up with Juventus to a certain degree, however over the last few weeks they have slipped to third. While playing on the road they won a cool 7 times, while the rest of the games ended in 6 draws and 3 losses. If they want to enter the qualifiers for the Champions League nest season, they will have to show their class and collect as many points as possible. Online sportsbooks in Italy have assigned them positive chances 1.75 (3/4), while the hosts have been dealt underdog status 4.75 (15/4).
