The Italian soccer league Serie A continues this weekend with Round 31 played from Saturday, April 24, to Monday, April 26. The previous Round 32 didn't bring a change at the top of the table as Inter are still leading Milan with 10 points. In third are reigning champions Atalanta, followed by Juventus, Napoli, and Lazio, who currently sit in the sixth position.
In Round 33, fourth-placed Juventus will look to continue their Champions League fight as they travel to Florence to meet Fiorentina on Sunday, April 25. The next day, on Monday, April 16, second-placed Milan and sixth-placed Lazio will come head-to-head to either determine their chances to qualify for the UCL or slowly fade away from the race.
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.
Fiorentina vs Juventus betting picks (Sunday, April 25)
When not needed, Juventus have not shown incredible signs of struggle and clumsiness, despite being the Serie A champions for nine consecutive seasons. The oddsmakers favor them for this matchup, but it is a fact that Cristiano Ronaldo's side have actually won only nine points in the last six league games. FanDuel see them as favorites against Fiorentina, mainly because the Viola sit in the 13th position in the Serie A table. However, Frank Ribery and his teammates know how to beat the Bianconeri, having triumphed over them 3-0 in their first meeting of the season.
All things considered, Juve are at -185 to win this clash while the wager on Fiorentina is at 500. At $100, the bettor could earn $500. Knowing that the Florence outfit turn into a much more serious side when they face a top club, a correct score of 2-2 for example is paying out +1500, if you want to bet on it, as a correct score line might be much more interesting than an outright bet.
Lazio vs Milan betting picks (Monday, April 26)
Milan have been finding it hard to cope with injuries, coronavirus cases, inconsistency, and now the entire mess with the Super League, but it appears as if they have all the luck in the world clenching the second spot on the Serie A table. Seeing as how stiff the competition is for a Champions League spot for next season, this will be one of those "do or die" clashes scheduled until the end of the season for them. Lazio have eight points less than the Rossoneri and are placed in the sixth position, but they are also one of the five other clubs besides Milan who are fighting for the three remaining spots that will lead into the UCL. Losing points in this game will be equal to a harakiri for both teams.
It is Milan who are +210 underdogs while betting on Lazio claiming a win here is at +110, and the matchup ending with no winner is at +280. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic likely to miss this match, betting that the game ends in a 1-1 draw could be a sure bet, at +600, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $600 on FanDuel. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Ciro Immobile, as he is at +290 to be the first one to score.
Parlays for these two matchups of Serie A Round 33
A solid parlay bet could be the following: The Fiorentina vs Juventus duel to end in a 2-2 tie; Lazio and Milan to draw 1-1, and Ciro Immobile to be the first one to score in the game. At $100, the bettor could win up to $2,390.
