Serie A betting tips: Big guns continue bid for top-four spots

| 14.05.2021

There are big derby matches in Serie A this weekend, while two teams battling to avoid the drop also meet.

We look at the best of Saturday’s action, when Juventus are 23/20 to win their final home match of the season in our Serie A betting tips.

Juventus v Inter Milan

Juve’s bid to win a 10th successive Serie A title has crumbled and they face a battle to secure a top-four finish.

Andrea Pirlo’s team have played 13 games since they last kept a clean sheet and Inter have lost just once away all season, at Sampdoria in January. The draw is available at 5/2.

Inter may have wrapped up the title but the Derby d’Italia has never been a game to take lightly.

The new champions have not prospered in this fixture in recent years though, having failed to score a single goal in the last six away games. None of these matches has yielded more than two goals, and under 2.5 is a 23/20 shot this time.

Roma v Lazio

Another derby where there is plenty to play for, with Lazio – who are 13/10 to win – looking a better bet to be playing Champions League football next season than Roma, whose Europa League qualification hopes have dwindled.

Both teams have scored in this fixture in the last four seasons and BTTS is available at 4/9 this time around. Roma have broken the deadlock in the last three and are 21/20 to score first again.

Genoa v Atalanta

Free-scoring Atalanta have Champions League qualification firmly in their sights once again, and Serie A’s second-placed team are 8/15 to score in the first half.

The 2-0 midweek win over struggling Benevento took their goal tally to 26 goals in 10 matches.

Although the goals are being shared around, leading scorer Luis Muriel has four in four and an Atalanta win and Muriel to have two or more shots on target is 7/10.

Spezia v Torino

It ended goalless between Torino and Spezia earlier in the season and, with both teams just above the drop zone, under 2.5 goals is available at 19/20.

With Cagliari upwardly mobile, these two – four points clear of the final relegation place – are the most in danger of being caught by Benevento and another tight contest is expected.

Spezia have only failed to score once since defeat to Juventus on March 2 and Torino need a tight start, following the 7-0 home thumping by AC Milan last time out. Spezia to win or draw, Torino under 0.5 goals in the first half and under 3.5 goals in the match is 15/8.
