Sassuolo Calcio +1 ½ -142 vs SSC Napoli -1 ½ +116
- When: Saturday, April 30 at 9:00 am ET
Both teams are struggling. The home squad has lost 2 with a draw in their last 3. The draw happened versus AS Roma. The two losses occurred against Fiorentina and Empoli.
Sassuolo has lost 3-of-4. Still, Sassuolo’s last match, a loss to Juventus, shows they can hang with teams like Napoli. We can go either way in this one. But these two have drawn in the last couple of head-to-head matches. So that’s the way we’ll go.
Soccer Pick: Draw
Lazio Rome -147 vs Spezia Calcio +390
- When: Saturday, April 30 at 2:45 pm ET
This is a tough match to handicap. Neither team is playing well. The road chalk shows a draw and a loss in their last couple of matches. Torino forced a 1-1 draw with Lazio on April 16 and then on April 24, AC Milan beat Lazio 2-1.
Spezia has lost 2 straight: 1-3 versus Inter Milano and 2-1 versus Torino. No doubt, the home team should be the underdog in this. But Lazio isn’t playing well enough to lay -147. Taking a shot on Spezia makes sense.
Soccer Pick: Spezia +390
Venezia FC +1 ½ +128 vs Juventus Turin -1 ½ -156
- When: Sunday, May 1 at 6:30 am ET
Venezia is in some trouble. The road underdog has lost 5 straight. They shouldn’t come close to winning this match.
Juventus has won 4-of-5. Juve, though, only won a single one of the 4 by more than a goal. Not only that, but in the last head-to-head, Juventus and Venezia drew 1-1. So as bad as Venezia has played, taking +1 ½ on the road dog is the bet to make.
Soccer Pick: Venezia FC +1 ½
ACF Fiorentina +420 vs AC Milan -156
- When: Sunday, May 1 at 9:00 am ET
Since beating Napoli 3-2 on April 10 and getting past Venezia 1-0 on April 16, Fiorentina’s form has fallen off a cliff. The road dog heads to Milan on a 3-match losing streak.
AC Milan has won 2-of-3 with a loss to Inter Milano. Milan offers fair odds to get the win. Fiorentina will find it difficult to beat AC on their pitch.
Soccer Pick: AC Milan -156
Inter Milano -1 ½ +143 vs Udinese Calcio +1 ½ -175
- When: Sunday, May 1 at 12:00 pm ET
These two are rocking it. Udinese is in slightly better form because the home team has 4 wins and a draw in their last 5.
Inter won 4 straight before losing their last to Bologna. Although Udinese is playing great, the road favorite has outscored the home team 6 goals to 1 in the last couple of head-to-head contests. Losing to Bologna was a freak occurrence. Inter Milano will get back on track in this.
Soccer Pick: Inter Milano -1 ½
Bologna FC +1 ½ -144 vs AS Roma -1 ½ +119
- When: Sunday, May 1 at 2:45 pm ET
Bologna is in excellent form. The underdog in this has won 2 with 3 draws in their last 5. One of Bologna’s wins happened in their last match versus Inter Milano.
Roma lost to Inter on April 23, but before the loss they had played well versus Bodo Glimt in a Europa Conference League match and in a 1-1 draw versus Napoli. The road team beat Roma in the last head-to-head. So there’s a reason to like the underdog. But Bologna’s form should go south soon. Laying the 1 ½ on Roma is the play.
Soccer Pick: AS Roma -1 ½
