Serie A Round 20 Preview: Roma Look To Climb Table Against Torino

Serie A Round 20 Preview: Roma Look To Climb Table Against Torino

Meanwhile, Napoli host Lazio hoping to cut Juventus’ lead, while AC Milan are at Genoa

We are now entering the second half of the Italian Serie A campaign and there are a couple of big teams who will need to make a marked improvement over the next few months. This coming Saturday (19 January), Roma host Torino looking to take all three points, while the following day Napoli welcome Lazio to the San Paolo with the intent of cutting Juventus’ lead at the top of the table. Milan travel to Genoa on Monday evening.

Where should I be investing my money?

First up, that clash between Roma and Torino on Saturday afternoon. The club from the capital sit sixth in the table but have won their last three games in a row across all competitions, and could go as high as fourth with a win here – temporarily, at least.

Torino, by way of comparison, sit three points and three places behind Roma, although they are without a win in their last two outings. A victory on the road however would move them level on points with their opponents.

But it is Roma who come in as the red hot favourites to continue their winning streak. You can back the home side to take all three points at just 1.60 while Torino are out at 5.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.80, according to Oddsshark.

This should be a fairly comfortable afternoon for AS Roma. A 3-1 win for the home side 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 a combo bet of a home win, coupled with both teams to score, at 3.10.

Napoli must beat Lazio to stay in title hunt

On the following day, Napoli host Lazio knowing that they simply must take all three points if they are to put any pressure on defending champions Juventus. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are a massive nine points behind the league leaders, and with the Old Lady not playing until Monday they have a fantastic chance to cut that lead.

Lazio meanwhile sit fourth in the table and are unbeaten in their last four games across all competitions. While they are unlikely to win the league title, they are priced at 3.00 to bg a place in the top four come the end of the season.

And regarding this match, it is Napoli who are the overwhelming favourites to collect another three points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.80, while Lazio are out at 4.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.50.

And we are expecting Napoli to prevail here. A 2-0 win for Ancelotti’s men is priced at 9.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$45 pay out, while you can double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.00.

Milan travel to Genoa looking for three points

And finally, AAC Milan head to Genoa on Monday evening looking for a win that could potentially take them into the top four. Genoa are down in 14th place and have not scored in their last two league outings.

Milan, on the other hand, have taken four points from their last two league games and will now look to push on in the second half of the season. The Rossoneri are also at 3.00 to manage a top four finish this season.

And it is indeed Milan who come into this match as the favourites to take all three points. You can more than double your money by backing the visitors to win at 2.10 while Genoa, despite home advantage, are out at 3.40 to do the same – a draw comes sin at that price as well.

This is unlikely to be a classic and a single goal could well be enough to win it. A narrow, 1-0 win for AC Milan comes in at 7.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$35 pay out, while you could more than triple your money by backing a combo bet of an away win and a “No” to both teams scoring, which is priced at 3.60.
