    Soccer Betting: After a mid-week round of Champions and Europa Leagues, the Serie A campaign resumes this weekend with a full slate of action on the pitch. Other than the AS Roma debacle against Barcelona, the Italian clubs in the two exterior competitions tasted plenty of success, as Napoli and Lazio are on top of their Europa League groups, while Juventus secured their path to the round of 16 in Champions league.

    With twoSaturdaymatches leading to the eightSundaycontests on the schedule, the battle between Napoli and Inter Milan makes our featured match of the week, as the two clubs sit only two points apart on top of the table. Napoli remained perfect in their Europa League group Don Thursday, taking the maximum 15 points through group stage possible.

    Let's get to the pitch and break down what we can expect this weekend as round 14 of the Serie A campaign resumes.

    Saturday November 28- 2 Matches

    Torino vs Bologna

    3-Way: 1: Torino -150 Home ; X: +265 Draw ; 2: Bologna +500 Away

    Spread: Torino -0.5 -150 ; Bologna +0.5 +130

    Total 2: Over -145 ; Under +125

    Analysis and Prediction:

    In last weekend’s draw with AS Roma, Bologna scored first to take an early 1 - 0 lead, but the three penalty kicks were the story of the outing. All three second half goals came on converted penalty kicks, and former Roma striker Mattia Destro drew the game level at 2 - 2 in the 87th minute after Roma seemingly had three points in their pockets.

    Torino snapped their six-match stretch without a win last weekend, taking a 1 - 0 result in Atalanta to get in the upper half of the table. A 52nd minute goal from a corner kick sent in by Daniel Baselli, found Cesare Bovo alone just outside the six-yard box, who made no mistake with his right foot strike.

    Bologna takes a two-match away win streak in to this weekend, and the Rossoblu have taken a result in four of their last five outings overall.

    We see this Over as an option, but obviously the -145 on the straight 2 holds no value. Boost the line up the handicap offer of Over 2 and 2.5 and get yourself closer to even money.

    AC Milan vs Sampdoria

    3-Way: 1: Milan -165 Home ; X: +290 Draw ; 2: Sampdoria +515 Away

    Spread: Milan -1 +100 ; Sampdoria +1 -120

    Total 2.5: Over -105 ; Under 115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Sampdoria has been a complete disaster away from home this campaign, being one of four clubs to have not found three points in their travels.

    AC Milan we know has been an up-and-down club the entire season, coming off a 1 - 0 loss to Juventus last weekend.

    This is yet another opportunity to splash the pot with a total, as we again come in suggesting the Over, but in this case we have a -105 on the Over 2.5 on our minds.

    Sunday November 29- 6 Matches

    Chievo Verona vs Udinese

    3-Way: 1: Chievo +120 Home ; X: +215 Draw ; 2: Udinese +270 Away

    Spread: Chievo -0.5 +120 ; Udinese +0.5 -140

    Total 2: Over -125 ; Under +105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    We can't quite say that Chievo are back on track after their 2 - 1 defeat of Carpi last weekend, since Carpi has been chewed on and spit out by most of the clubs they have faced this campaign.

    Udinese kept Sampdoria out of the net last weekend in their 1 - 0 win, but even with both clubs finding wins, we cannot expect much to come from this match.

    We offer the draw in this one, with a +215 attached to the action.

    AS Roma vs Atalanta

    3-Way: 1: Roma -205 Home ; X: +333 Draw ; 2: Atalanta +625 Away

    Spread: Roma -1 -120 ; Atalanta +1 +100

    Total 2.5: Over -125 ; Under +105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Atalanta looks strikingly familiar to the club we recall from last campaign, as scoring has suddenly become almost impossible lately.

    Atalanta has gone three straight outings without a goal, while the Roma defense might relieve some of that pressure because they have been unable to slow down anyone lately, as evident of the 6 - 1 thrashing in Champions League Roma took at the hands of Barcelona.

    So will Roma keep Atalanta off the score sheet, or will Roma just continue to slide down the table because of their defensive ineptitude?

    We see this Over as the play to offer, expecting a 2 - 1 affair to take place at Stadio Olimpico, and we see the -125 as reasonably acceptable on the offer.

    Genoa vs Carpi

    3-Way: 1: Genoa -155 Home ; X: +275 Draw ; 2: Carpi +515 Away

    Spread: Genoa -1 +105 ; Carpi +1 -125

    Total 2.5: Over +100 ; Under -120

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Carpi is a mess, and we can already start to assume that they will be one-and-done in top flight this year, as their Serie A campaign has just been filled with disappointment.

    Averaging two goals allowed per contest is simply not a good way to go about trying to remain in the league, while scoring one goal in the last three outings will certainly not aid the cause.

    Genoa at home are almost assured of a win, but the -155 is not even close to acceptable, so we have to resort to the -1 handicap offer at +105.

    A 2 - 1 result will lead to a push, which is find when you have a +105 on the action in case they can manage to pull away from the newly promoted side.

    Frosinone vs Hellas Verona

    3-Way: 1: Frosinone +160 Home ; X: +220 Draw ; 2: Verona +190 Away

    Spread: Frosinone Pk -125 ; Verona Pk +105

    Total 2.5: Over -105 ; Under -115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    How this total is at -105 to go Over the number is about the most outrageous line of the weekend in Serie A.

    These two clubs couldn't stop half of Serie B from finding the net, and we might just see these two competing in the second tier next campaign if the results keep shaping up as they have.

    Take the Over 2.5 at -105, and laugh hysterically to the bank.

    Empoli vs Lazio

    3-Way: 1: Empoli +195 Home ; X: +235 Draw ; 2: :Lazio +145 Away

    Spread: Empoli Pk +115 ; Lazio Pk -135

    Total 2.5: Over +115 ; Under -135

    Bet on The Serie A at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Oh poor Lazio!

    Away from home again and the discussion continues as to why, for some reason, they simply cannot leave Rome and play football. Four goals scored and 16 allowed with 1 win and 5 losses from six away fixtures, and we have benefited from it time and again.

    Out of principle alone, we offer the Empoli Pk at +115, because we can only say it so many times that Lazio simply stinks when they travel.

    Palermo vs Juventus

    3-Way: 1: Palermo +550 Home ; X: +275 Draw ; 2: Juventus -165 Away

    Spread: Palermo +1 -120 ; Juventus -1 +100

    Total 2.5: Over +120 ; Under -140

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Juventus came up with a 1 - 0 win in Champions League this week over Manchester City, and it is enough to see them through to the round of 16, although there is still a battle between the two clubs as to who will take first or second. That will work itself in two weeks, but for now Juventus has to make sure they remain playing well in league play to atone for the poor start.

    Palermo has historically played better at home then away, but this year they have not been the same dominant club they have been at Renzo Barbera.

    We don't expect Palermo to score at all in this one, so we offer the Juventus -1 handicap offer of even money +100.

    Monday November 30- 2 Matches

    Featured Match Napoli vs Inter Milan

    3-Way 1x2 Lines:

    Napoli -140

    Inter +430

    Draw +275

    Spread:

    Napoli -0.5 -140

    Inter +0.5 +120

    Total 2.5:

    Over -125

    Under +105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    The battle of the weekend comeson Mondayat Stadio San Paolo, as the top-two clubs in the table face off for the lead in the table.

    Napoli is riding a 17-match stretch without a loss that dates back toAugust 23, when they lost 1 - 0 to Sassuolo at Mapei Stadium.

    Inter Milan is riding a seven-match streak of their own without a loss in league play, while these two defenses have set precedence this campaign, being the only two clubs to have not allowed double-digit goals against them this year.

    At +105, this total is where we suggest you look for the funds, as the +105 on the Under 2.5 makes the most sense to us for a play.

    That is not to say that there is plenty of offensive talent on the pitch, but with the way this campaign has gone so far, we do not see goals coming in as easily as it did in last year's contest here that ended 2 - 2.

    Sassuolo vs Fiorentina

    3-Way: 1: Sassuolo +255 Home ; X: +250 Draw ; 2: Fiorentina +110 Away

    Spread: Sassuolo +0.5 -130 ; Fiorentina -0.5 +110

    Total 2.5: Over -105 ; Under -115

    Bet on The Serie A at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    If not for the meeting with Napoli and Inter, this match could have been seen as a featured match of the round, as two of the top five clubs in the table face off at Mapei Stadiumon Monday.

    We are ending the weekend with another offer on a total, because these two offenses can produce goals in droves at times.

    Fiorentina has plowed in 26 goals this campaign, which only trails Roma with 29.

    The Viola will likely go out and continue to build on that success, while Sassuolo has scored in all six of their home outings in league play this year, with a Coppa Italia win also in the mix that provided two goals.

    Grab the Over 2.5 at -105, and enjoy the rest of your week!
