Meanwhile, Roma look to move into top four with victory at Spal, while Milan and Inter meet in local derby
There are no secrets for guessing the biggest game in Italy’s Serie A this coming weekend, with AC Milan set to meet old rivals Inter on Sunday evening (17 March) at the San Siro). On the Friday night, Fiorentina can climb the table with a win over Cagliari, while Roma could break into the top four if they win away at Spal on Saturday afternoon.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, the clash between Cagliari and Fiorentina on the Friday night. Cagliari currently sit just six points above the relegation zone but recorded an excellent victory over Inter Milan last time out at home, and have won their last two matches in front of their own fans – they are all the way out at 26.00 to fall through the trap door this term.
Fiorentina, by way of comparison, have not won any of their last four matches across all competitions and must be low on morale as well as form. This has been a disappointing campaign for the Viola with precious little left to play for.
And while the betting is close, it is Fiorentina 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 2.30, while Cagliari, despite home advantage, are out at 3.10 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.25, according to Oddsshark.
But we are expecting Cagliari’s recent home form to continue. A narrow, 2-1 win for Cagliari is priced competitively at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.10.
Roma could go fourth with win
The following day, Roma take on Spal knowing that a win could put them fourth – temporarily, at least. Spal are without a win in their last six league outings and sit just two points above the drop zone – they are at 2.87 to be relegated come the end of the season.
Roma, in stark contrast, have won four of their last five league contests and sit in fifth place. The club from the capital are priced at 3.00 to finish this season in the top four.
And it is of little surprise to see that it is Roma who come into this match as the clear favourites to collect three vital points. You can back the visitors to win at just 1.72, while Spal are out at 4.75 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.60.
This should be a comfortable afternoon for Roma. A 2-0 win for the away side comes in at 8.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$42.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.10.
Milan and Inter meet in derby
And finally, AC Milan and Inter will lock horns at the San Siro on Sunday evening. Milan have been in resurgent form over recent weeks, winning their last five league games in a row to climb to third, just six points behind Napoli in second.
Inter, meanwhile, have won just one of their last four matches across all competitions and have dropped down to fourth in the table. They remain however at just 1.57 to finish the season in the top four.
Again, the betting is tight, but it is AC Milan who come in as slight favourites to take the points. You can more than double your money by backing the Rossonerito claim local bragging rights at 2.40, while Inter are out at 3.10 to do the same – a draw comes in highest of all at 3.20.
And we are expecting Milan’s excellent recent form to continue. A 2-1 win for AC comes in at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.20.
