Remarkably no side in the top eleven in Serie A lost a game last weekend with the top five all claiming maximum points.
In a punter’s dream, all the most of the big-name teams won whilst Lazio and AC Milan played out an entertaining 1-1 draw.
It is ‘as you were’ at the top of the table as we head into week 25 as Juventus have the opportunity to move ten points clear at the top before anyone else has kicked a ball as they welcome Palermo to the Juventus stadium on Friday night.
Palermo are fighting for their lives in eighteenth in Serie A and are seen as having little to no hope against the Turin giants at 19/1 for a shock victory.
However, Juventus have won four of their last five games 2-0 and are 17/4 to win by that score line again for a fifth time in six.
Bologna have gone into free fall in recent weeks after suffering three defeats in a row conceding eleven in the process.
Things do not get easier for Roberto Donadoni’s Bologna side as they welcome Inter Milan to the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Sunday morning.
Inter put their loss to Juventus behind them last weekend as they overcame Empoli 2-0 to get back to winning ways.
Inter are 10/13 for the win and that is better value than many expected, especially against a side who are leaking goals for fun at the moment.
Roma host Joe Hart’s Torino on Sunday evening in what should be an entertaining game. Roma boast the same record as Inter Milan in their last ten having won eight and only lost two which is ‘just’ keeping them in touching distance of leaders Juventus.
Torino put five past Pescara last time out to claim their first victory in six Serie A matches, however, the three goals conceded in that game will cause manager Siniša Mihajlović a few sleepless nights.
There should be plenty of goals in this one with over 3.5 a likely winning bet at 5/4 with us.
In the outright betting, Roma are short price favourites at 10/23 whilst a surprise Torino victory is 6/1 with the draw at 7/2 all with Comeon!
The final match of week 25 arguably saves the best until last as AC Milan welcome Fiorentina to the San Siro on Sunday night.
Just one point separates the sides in the league with AC Milan sat in seventh and The Viola in eighth. A lot rides on this game and it should a high intensity affair.
Fiorentina overcame Udinese 3-0 last time out but AC Milan’s 1-1 draw with Lazio was equally as impressive.
AC edge the betting at 23/20 with home advantage whereas Fiorentina are 23/10 for the win. This game is the flip of coin with both outrights offering significant value.
Inter to win away at Bologna on Sunday is 10/13 with us, when you consider Bologna have conceded 11 in their last three, all of a sudden that price looks even more value for money.
