The Italian top-flight league postponed all seven Serie A round 27 Sunday matches after the overnight death of Fiorentina’s captain Davide Astori. Except the Derby Della Madonnina AC Milan vs Inter Milan, all the other matches will be played on 3rd and 4th of April. Let’s break down the most important games of the round and find out the best value bets at BMR's green-listed bookmakers.
Despite losing against AC Milan 2 rounds ago, AS Roma are in great shape and they enter this match on the back of a brilliant result beating leaders Napoli 4-2 on the road. They are sitting 3rd in the standings with 53 points earned in 27 fixtures, and they will be looking to secure their Champions League position with another win against 9th-placed Torino. The visitors are not travelling well, winless in their last 4 away fixtures and winning just 3 matches on the road all season. This clash will open the round taking place on Friday as AS Roma will host Shakhtar Donetsk next Tuesday in Champions League. Eusebio Di Francesco might rest some of his key players ahead of the UCL match, so we will skip the winners market and focus on the goals market following the head-to-head trend.
Best pick for the match: Over 2.5 goals at 1.73 with Betfair.
Despite sitting 7th in the standings 8 points behind 4th-placed Lazio, AC Milan have been in a great run of form since Gennaro Gattuso was appointed as their coach and they are still fighting for a top 4 finish. They enter this match on the back of 13-match unbeaten streak, winning their last 6 fixtures in all competition without conceding goals in the process. Genoa saw their 3-match winning streak come to an end last round when they lost 0-2 away at Bologna, but they are still 9 points above the danger zone and we don’t expect them to go down in Serie B. They have the 3rd-worst attack in the league with just 21 goals netted this term and we expect them to continue on the same path and struggle to find the back of the net against Milan’s rock-solid defense. AC Milan should have enough to extend their winning streak and keep climbing the table maintaining the pressure on the top spots.
Best pick for the match: AC Milan to win at 2.5 with Unibet.
The reigning champs Juventus are sitting just 1 point behind leaders Napoli having a game in hand on them as their match against Atalanta from 2 rounds ago was postponed due to bad weather conditions. Paulo Dybala returned from injury scoring a superb late goal into injury time to help his side win away at Lazio 1-0 and extend their unbeaten streak to 20 matches in all competitions. Udinese enter this match on the back of 3 Serie A defeats in a row and are likely to have the same fate against Juventus. There is no value on a home win as Juventus are priced at 1.3 with Coral, but we don’t see them pushing for more than 3 goals in the match, so we will combine the winners market with the total goals market for better value.
Best pick for the match: Juventus to win and under 3.5 goals in the match at 1.91 with Coral.
Bologna vs. Atalanta – Over 2.5 goals in the match at 2.2 with Betfair
Cagliari vs. Lazio – Lazio to win and over 1.5 goals in the match at 2.0 with Unibet
