The Italian soccer league Serie A continues this weekend with Round 29 played on Saturday, April 3. The previous Round 28 didn't bring a change at the top of the table as Inter are still leading Milan with six points, but they have a game in hand. In third are reigning champions Juventus, followed by Atalanta, Napoli, and Roma, who currently sit in the sixth position.
This round provides an opportunity for the bettor to play around with parlays, picks in the over/under, or goalscorers. Here are some sports betting predictions to consider when placing a bet on these Serie A matchups.
Torino vs Juventus betting picks (Saturday, April 3)
Despite the fact that Torino haven't been themselves ever since that record-breaking 2018/19 Serie A season when they entered the Europa League Qualifiers, they have the magnificent Andrea Belotti to help them stay afloat in the Italian top division. The 27-year-old striker has netted 11 goals and made six assists in Serie A so far this season.
Juventus, meanwhile, are not living their best moment, discipline-wise. They will be missing seven players for the clash with their arch-rivals. Sandro has been injured, Buffon has been suspended, while Bonucci and Demiral have been tested positive for COVID-19. To make matters worse, US international McKennie, Dybala, and Arthur were not included in the squad due to disciplinary issues. The Bianconeri have finally caught up to Milan, but they slipped up in Round 28 when they surprisingly lost 1-0 to Benevento.
In spite of that, and the fact that several key players will be out of the Derby della Mole, it looks doubtful that Torino will be able to cause an upset here. It’s not unreasonable to think that Juventus can win this game 3-1 and that score line is paying +1000. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Cristiano Ronaldo, as he is at +200 to be the first one to score. Want to put your money on something solid, always bet on CR7.
Bologna vs Inter betting picks (Saturday, April 3)
Bologna have been struggling to find momentum this season, managing only nine wins in 28 Rounds so far. Their only win against any of the top 6 sides was the 2-0 one against Lazio in Round 24 on February 27. An interesting fact is that they have been the only Serie A side with five consecutive draws, from December 12, 2022, to January 6, 2021.
On the other side on the pitch, they have Inter who are on the rise, as the Nerazzurri haven't lost a league game since January 6, when Sampdoria caused a 2-1 upset. Since then, they have managed Serie A triumphs over Juventus, Milan, Lazio, and Atalanta proving they can take on the challenges. The fact that they were knocked out of both the Champions League and the Coppa Italia has only made them stronger and inspired them to focus solely on the league.
Having both teams' current form in mind, it looks doubtful that Bologna will be able to stop Inter's impressive run. FanDuel are favoring Inter by a big margin, as the Nerazzurri are paying out -250, Bologna +650, and a draw is at +380. In addition, betting that the game will have Over 3.5 goals could be a sure bet, at +148, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $148.
Parlays for these two matchups of Serie A Round 29
A solid parlay bet could be the following: Juventus to beat Torino 3-1; Cristiano Ronaldo to be the first one to score in the game, and Bologna and Inter to score Over 3.5 goals. At $100, the bettor could win up to $1,348.
