Meanwhile, Juventus meet Torino in local derby, while Napoli travel to Cagliari
The 16th round of games in Italy’s Serie A will see Napoli and Inter desperately try and cut the gap at the top of the table to defending champions Juventus. Inter need to get back to winning ways following defeat last time out, while Juventus are at Torino and Napoli are on the hunt for another three points when they visit Cagliari.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, Inter Milan will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they host Udinese at the San Siro this coming Saturday (15 December). Inter are without a win in four games across all competitions and were dumped out of the UEFA Champions League in midweek.
Udinese, meanwhile, are struggling for points and sit just two clear of the relegation zone. They have won just three games all season and are scoring at a rate of less than a goal a game – they cannot be relishing the prospect of a trip to one of the strongest sides in the division.
And it is no surprise to see that it is Inter who are the overwhelming favourites to win this one. You can back the home side to take all three points at just 1.36, while Udinese are all the way out at 8.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.75, according to Oddsshark.
And this should be a walk in the park for Inter. The Nerazzurri are at 8.50 to win this tie 3-0, meaning that a US$5 bet would led to a US$42.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a home win and a “No” to both teams scoring, which comes in at 2.10.
Juventus face local derby
On the same day, current champions and table toppers Juventus travel to take on Torino in a local derby. Torino are in good form and come into this match unbeaten in their last nine while sitting sixth in the table – a win here could potentially put them level on points with Lazio, depending on the result of the Roman club.
Juventus, by way of comparison, are threatening to run away with the league title. The Old Lady are eight points clear at the top of the pile and have dropped just two points in the league all season.
And it is indeed the champions who come into this derby as the clear favourites to pick up yet another win. You can back Juventus to claim local bragging rights at just 1.55 while Torino, despite home advantage, are out at 6.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.80.
And given Torino’s excellent recent form, this could well end in a stalemate. A 1-1 draw is priced at 7.00, while you could more than double your money by backing both teams to score at 2.05.
Napoli need three more points
And finally, Napoli head to Cagliari on the Sunday afternoon in need of all three points to remain in contention for the title. The hosts are down in 13th place but are unbeaten in their last five as they look to move away from relegation danger.
Napoli, in stark contrast, would appear to be the main challengers to Juventus’ crown. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are unbeaten in their last eight league outings and it is fair to say that only a win will do here as they look to cut the lead at the top.
And the visitors do come in as the favourites to collect another much needed win. You can back Napoli to take all three points at just 1.45, with Cagliari out at 7.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.20.
This is a game we are expecting Napoli to win with relative ease. A comfortable, 3-1 victory for the visitors is priced competitively at 12.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you could more than triple your money by backing combo bet of a Napoli win and both teams to score, which comes in at 3.40.
