Top UEFA Serie A Games to Watch This Weekend (Aug 27th – 29th)

Venezia +370 vs Udinese -151

  • When: Friday, Aug. 27

On Aug. 22, Napoli beat Venezia 2-0. Udinese played well in their last match, drawing with Juventus 2-2. Although Venezia offers better odds, the home team should grab their first win of the season. 

Soccer Pick: Udinese  

Inter Milano -169 vs Hellas Verona +390

  • When: Friday, Aug. 27

The reigning champs started their Serie A season off with a fantastic 4-0 victory against Genoa. What impressed most is that last season’s striker, Romelu Lukaku, now plays for Chelsea. Lautaro Martinez didn’t play against Genoa either and Inter didn’t miss a beat. Hellas should have trouble hanging with the champs.  

Soccer Pick: Inter Milano   

Bologna +1 ½ (-169) vs Atalanta -1 ½ (-120)

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 28

In their first match, Serie A contender Atalanta bested Torino 2-1. On Aug. 22, Bologna beat Salernitana 3-2. The odds make it impossible to back Bologna. Although they scored 3 goals, they gave up a couple to Salernitana in their last. Atlanta can beat the road squad by 2 or more. 

Soccer Pick: Atalanta   

Spezia +1 ½ (-149) vs Lazio -1 ½ (+111)

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 28

Facing 2020 Serie B squad Empoli, Lazio showed they’re ready to challenge Inter for the Serie A title. The home team in this dominated overmatched Empoli 3-0. Spezia beat Pordenone Calcio 3-1 in an Italian Coppola match in their last. Spezia could keep this to within a goal. But the odds make Lazio the play. 

Soccer Pick: Lazio

Torino +215 vs Fiorentina +118

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 28

Neither team impressed in their first Serie A matches. Torino fell 1-2 versus Atalanta while AS Roma blasted Fiorentina 3-1. These two drew in the last head-to-head. Although both offer decent odds, these two are too close to determine if either wins in regulation. Backing the draw makes the most sense. 

Soccer Pick: Draw   

Empoli +1 ½ (+117) vs Juventus -1 ½ (-156) 

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 28

In their first Serie A match, Juventus didn’t play great. But Juvy did score a couple of goals in the draw with Udinese. Empoli is a much worse team than Udinese, which is why Juventus should cover the handicap. 

Soccer Pick: Juventus 

Sampdoria +235 vs Sassuolo +102

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29  

Sassuolo has won 4-of-5, including beating Hellas Verona 3-2 in their last. Sampdoria has won 3 straight. But the road team’s last win was an Italian Coppa Italia match. The home squad gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Sassuolo   

Napoli -1 ½ (+123) vs Genoa +1 ½ (-163)

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29  

Napoli has won 4-of-5 with a draw. Genoa lost their last match by 4 goals. Although Genoa is at home, Napoli should have no trouble covering this handicap. 

Soccer Pick: Napoli   

As Roma -166 vs Salernitana +380

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29  

If Salernitana couldn’t hang with Bologna in their first Serie A match, they won’t hang with As Roma in their second. Roma has won 3 straight and 4-of-5. The 3-1 victory over Fiorentina on Aug. 22 signals that Roma is much improved from the disappointing club team from last season. Roma wins their fourth in a row.  

Soccer Pick: As Roma

Cagliari +1 ½ (-156) vs AC Milan -1 ½ (+118) 

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29  

On Aug. 23, AC Milan beat Sampdoria 1-0. Cagliari drew 2-2 with Spezia on the same day. Cagliari and AC drew 0-0 in the last head-to-head. Although another draw is possible, we must believe AC Milan is better this season than they were last season. Give the home team the benefit of the doubt. 

Soccer Pick: AC Milan
