The Coppa Italia has reached the Round of 16 and there are plenty of interesting matchups to bet on this week. Can Cremonese upset Lazio? Will Fiorentina be able to compete with Atalanta? Can Udinese keep out Ju
Lazio vs. Cremonese – 1/14/20
Lazio come into this game as massive favorites. The Rome club are currently third in Serie A – seven points clear of fourth-place Atalanta and four behind Inter. On the other hand, Cremonese are seventeenth in Serie B. The second-tier side are yet to face top-flight opposition in this competition, so I think they will struggle against Lazio. However, the home win is just 1.15. To enhance your odds, add the over 2.5 goals market into the mix. Lazio have been scoring goals for fun this season, so I can see them netting at least three against Cremonese.
Pick: Lazio to Win and Over 2.5 Goals – 1.60
Fiorentina vs. Atalanta – 1/15/20
It’s difficult to pick a winner for this matchup. Fiorentina have been extremely inconsistent this term and find themselves in fourteenth place in Serie A. Atalanta are fourth in the top-flight standings, but they have also been struggling for consistency in recent weeks. Atalanta are the division’s highest scoring side this season, but only Cagliari have conceded more goals in the top half of the table. For that reason, I’m expecting this game to be a high-scoring encounter. Neither side likes to defend, but they are capable of scoring plenty of goals between them.
Pick: Over 3.5 Goals – 2.50
Juventus vs. Udinese – 1/16/20
Juventus are now two points clear at the top of the Serie A table and have only suffered one defeat in 19 league games this season. Udinese have won seven of their 19 games this term, leaving them in twelfth place. However, only bottom side SPAL have scored fewer goals than Udinese this season, so I don’t think the away side will trouble Juventus too much. Juventus’ defense is also extremely solid. The home win is at 1.25, but if you back Juventus to win without conceded the odds are far more attractive.
Pick: Juventus to Win and Keep a Clean Sheet – 1.95
