The Italian soccer league Serie A continues this weekend with Round 30 played from Saturday, April 9, to Monday, April 12. The previous Round 29 didn't bring a change at the top of the table as Inter are still leading Milan with 11 points. In third are reigning champions Juventus, followed by Atalanta, Napoli, and Lazio, who currently sit in the sixth position.
In Round 30, second-placed Milan will attempt to move away from Juve as they travel to Emilia-Romagna to face Parma on Saturday, April 10. The following day, on Sunday, April 11, leaders Inter welcome Cagliari at the Giuseppe Meazza, in an attempt to clinch closer to their 19th Serie A title.
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.
Parma vs Milan betting picks (Saturday, April 10)
Parma will have to work really hard if they want to remain in Italy's top division, as they are locked deep into the relegation zone. They have won only 20 points in 29 fixtures so far this season. However, they know how to cause an upset against a top 6 club, as the Yellow and Blues have grabbed three points from Roma's visit on March 14, in Round 27.
On the other side, the Rossoneri will certainly not have it easy as they are still struggling to find their 2020 form. They have had a hell of a year, crawling out of the Coppa Italia and the Europa League, and to make matters worse, their current form is putting everything they have accomplished so far into jeopardy. The Rossoneri's poor recent form has got them fighting to keep the second Serie A spot and even their possible Champions League qualification.
Milan know that they can't risk anymore, so, in spite of their form, betting that this game ends in a 2-1 win for the San Siro side could be a sure bet, at +700, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $700. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as he is at -145 to be the first one to score. Want to put your money on something solid, always bet on Ibra.
Inter vs Cagliari betting picks (Sunday, April 11)
It's safe to say that Inter can already be crowned champions, despite not having secured the title mathematically just yet. The Nerazzurri are stronger than ever, as they haven't lost a league game since January 6, when Sampdoria surprised them with a 2-1 win. 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.
Meanwhile, Cagliari have been having a season to forget. They may have never been the club to fight for titles, but it is certainly hard to see them struggle in the relegation zone. The Islanders have celebrated a victory barely twice this calendar year, as well as two draws in 15 games played in 2021. Having both teams' current form in mind, it looks doubtful that Cagliari will be able to stop Inter's impressive run. It’s not unreasonable to think that the Nerazzurri can win this game 3-0 and that score line is paying +750. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Romelu Lukaku, as he is at +230 to be the first one to score. The Belgium international has netted 21 goals in 29 games so far.
Parlays for these two matchups of Serie A Round 30
A solid parlay bet could be the following: Milan to beat Parma 2-1; Zlatan Ibrahimovic to be the first one to score in the game; Inter to beat Cagliari 3-0, and Romelu Lukaku to score the first goal of the matchup. At $100, the bettor could win up to $1,535.
