Meanwhile, Roma host champions Juventus while Inter Milan welcome relegated Chievo
The 36th round of action in Italy’s Serie A promises to be a crucial one in the battle for a place in the top four. This coming Saturday afternoon (11 May) AC Milan face a tough trip to Fiorentina, while the following afternoon AS Roma will host the newly crowned league champions Juventus. And on the Monday evening Inter Milan will be expecting to take all three points against a Chievo side which has already been relegated.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Fiorentina and AC Milan on Saturday evening. Fiorentina are without a win in their last 13 matches across all competitions, and have lost their last three league matches in a row, as they have plummeted down the standings over the last few weeks.
AC Milan, by way of comparison, have won two of their last four league matches, losing just the once. Sitting in fifth place, three points behind Atalanta in fourth, they are priced at 5.00 to finish the season in the top four.
And while the betting is close, it is AC Milan who come into this match as the slight favourites to collect what could turn out to be three hugely important points. You can more than double your money by backing the visitors to win at 2.30 while Fiorentina, 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 3.20, according to Oddsshark.
And we are expecting Milan to just about edge this contest. A narrow, 1-0 win for the away side is priced at 8.50, meaning that a USS$5 bet would lead to a US$42.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a “No” to both teams scoring at 2.05.
Roma need a victory against Juventus
The following day, AS Roma host Juventus needing all three points in their quest for a place in the top four. Roma are unbeaten in their last six league matches and sit sixth, three points off fourth – they are out at 9.00 to bag a place in the top four this term.
Juventus, meanwhile, have won just one of their last four matches and are struggling for motivation. The Old Lady have already been crowned champions, and with nothing left to compete for their season is effectively over already.
Again, the betting is close but it is Roma who come in as the slight favourites to collect three valuable points. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to win at 2.40, while Juventus are slightly higher at 2.75, and a draw comes in highest of all at 3.50.
And we are expecting home advantage to be a decisive factor in this fixture. A 2-1 win for Roma is priced at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out, while you can more than quadruple your money by backing a combo bet of a Roma win, coupled with both teams to score, at 4.33.
Inter should beat Chievo
And finally, Inter Milan welcome Chievo to the San Siro on Monday evening. Inter are unbeaten in their last six league contests and sit third – they are priced at just 1.030 to finish the season in the top four.
Chievo, meanwhile, sit rock bottom of the table and have already been relegated. They have won just two games all season and are unlikely to cause their hosts too many problems.
And it is indeed Inter who come into this match as the overwhelming favourites to take the points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.12, while Chievo are all the way out at 19.00 to record what would be a shock win on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 8.00.
This could well end up being a rout. A 4-0 thrashing in Inter’s favour comes in at 9.00, while you can almost quadruple your money by backing the home side to be ahead inside the first 10 minutes at 3.75.
