  • Betcris.com Atalanta are looking to win their first trophy in nearly 60 years. The small club in Lombardy has risen to new heights under manager Gian Piero Gasperini over the past three seasons, and they are now on the precipice of winning their first trophy since winning the Coppa Italia in 1962-63. Atalanta have defeated Lazio in both of their previous meetings this season, and one more win over the capital club this season will give them a piece of hardware.   More

    AS Roma vs Juventus Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com AS Roma have finished in the top three in Serie A for five straight seasons. With those finishes, they have continually earned spots in the Champions League, allowing them to refill their coffers and keeping them competitive among Europe’s elite. They may find themselves in a trying situation this offseason if they can’t get back to the continent’s most prestigious tournament.   More

    Inter Milan vs Juventus Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com The most storied club in Italy locked up its eighth straight scudetto last weekend, and Juventus don’t have anything of real value to play for the rest of the season. The Old Lady are 20 points ahead of Napoli with five games left, and now that their Champions League dreams are dashed, there is a question of how seriously the will take the rest of the next month. That could be great news for an Inter Milan team looking to lock up their spot in next year’s Champions League.   More

  • Betcris.com It’s been five years since AC Milan last played in the Champions League, and one of the blue bloods of the Serie A Italian soccer is looking to make it back to Europe’s top competition. AC Milan are currently in fourth place and in position to make it back to the Champions League, but there are two teams right behind them. Milan are sitting on 55 points, and that has them one point ahead of Roma and two points up on Atalanta. There are just six games left in the season, so Milan must not falter against 14th place Parma on Saturday.   More

    Serie A Matchday 32 Odds Report

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com The race for the final Champions League spot in Italy is setting up to be a wild one. Juventus and Napoli are sure to get two of the spots, and Inter Milan are around 90 percent likely to land the third. There are five clubs within three points of one another for fourth place though, and that is going to make things exhilarating down the stretch. Two of those clubs (AC Milan and Lazio Roma) meet on Saturday in what should be a banger, while the other three have matches against bottom of the table teams.   More

    Serie A Odds - Soccer Analysis

    By Phil Simon

    Betcris.com Some of the worst clubs in Serie A really helped the causes with stunning wins during mid-week action this week. Empoli pulled off the most surprising win after a shocking 2-1 victory over second-place Napoli that brought the Tuscan club out of the relegation zone. SPAL knocked off Lazio with an Andrea Petagna penalty in the 89th minute, and Frosinone picked up their first home win of the season after a converted penalty in the 13th minute of extra time.   More

  • Betcris.com Both Milan clubs suffered 1-0 losses over the weekend, and the race for Serie A’s last two Champions League spots is heating up. Capital clubs Lazio and Roma, and hard-charging Atalanta, are all within four points of the top four. Those three clubs are all favored to win this week, and it will be up to AC Milan and Inter Milan to stay ahead of the pack.   More

  • Betcris.com Juventus have essentially locked up their eighth straight Scudetto, but there is still plenty to be determined in the Italian league over the last two months of the season. We are pretty sure that Napoli and the two rivals in Milan will qualify for the Champions League next year, and Chievo and Frosinone are likely to be relegated. However, Serie A’s two Europa League spots and the last team to face relegation are very much in the air. That will lead to a lot of intrigue this weekend.   More

  • Betcris.com The struggle to avoid relegation is pretty fierce in Serie A right now. Chievo look set to drop with just one win and 10 points to their name this season, but six teams have a chance to fill out the bottom two. One of those teams is Udinese. Udinese have pulled themselves out of the relegation zone over the last month, but they are out of the frying pan and into the fryer with back-to-back games against Juventus and Napoli. They were throttled by Juventus last weekend, and they are favored to fall against Napoli too.   More

    Inter Milan vs SPAL Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com Staying in Italy’s top flight for another year would be huge for SPAL. The small club has only been in Serie A for two seasons in the last half-century, and a third season would go a long way to stabilizing the finances of a team that has declared bankruptcy twice in 15 years. Currently, SPAL sit in 16th place in the table, but they can’t breathe a sigh of relief just yet. Empoli are just a point behind them in 17th and Bologna and Frosinone are within five and six points respectively. That means a road result against Inter Milan on Sunday would be huge.   More

    Cagliari vs Inter Milan Betting Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com The goal for Inter Milan at this point is simple, finish in the top four and ensure a spot in next year’s Champions League. Although the club is still alive in the Europa League and can that way, it would be easier to maintain their place in Serie A then beat out 15 other teams for the Europa League title and a bid into the Champions League as a result. Internazionale currently sit in third place in the table with 47 points, but city rivals AC Milan are just two points back and AS Roma sit three points behind. They are looking to avoid any slip-ups, but they have a tricky road test off the Italian mainland against Cagliari this week.   More

    Sampdoria vs Cagliari Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com Sampdoria would love to make it back to European competition, but their chances of that happening are starting to wane. The Genoese club has fallen to 10th place in the Serie A table after three consecutive losses, and they are still looking for their first points in the month of February. They still have time to make up ground and sit just five points behind 6th place Atalanta, and Sampdoria are out to narrow the gap when they host Cagliari this Sunday.   More

    Fiorentina vs SPAL Serie A Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com Fiorentina are looking to make it back to European football after a two-year absence. Fiorentina have been a middle of the table team in Serie A for the last few years, and they are in the middle of the table again this year. They are in 10th place right now, but there have been indications that the team is ready to rise. They will look to start their ascent this Sunday when they head on the road to take on SPAL. Fiorentina are slight favorites in this game.   More

  • Betcris.com Juventus are closing in on a record eighth straight Serie A title. The Italian giants have yet to lose this season, and they are nine points ahead of Napoli in their hunt for their 35th scudetto. They are an astonishing 20 points ahead of third place Internazionale, and the fact that you could get them at -200 to win the Serie A title at the start of the season looks laughable in retrospect considering their additions. Juventus will look to keep it going this Sunday when they travel to face Sassuolo.   More

  • Betcris.com Lazio have spent this week cursing their luck. They are in eighth place with a 9-5-7 record, but they are just three points behind AC Milan for fourth place and a potential spot in next year’s Champions League. The Eagles were nearly level with Milan coming into this Monday’s match against Frosinone though. They took on undefeated league leaders Juventus over the weekend, and it looked like they would pull off a stunning upset for a while. Lazio went up 1-0 after an Emre Can own goal, and the Canaries held that lead late. Unfortunately, they couldn’t hold on and allowed an equalizer and conceded a late penalty to miss out on a result.   More

    Juventus vs Sampdoria Serie A Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com It’s been all Juventus once again in Serie A play. The Italian giants look set to win their eighth straight league title, and they are on pace to post their best record ever. They became the only team in Italian football history to top 100 points in a season five years ago when they finished with a   More

  • Betcris.com AC Milan’s shocking loss to Olympiakos last week could end up being the straw that broke the camel’s back. The defeat sent AC Milan crashing out of the Europa League prior to the knockout rounds, and that was exactly what the cash-strapped club didn’t need. They will only see 3 million Euros from their appearance in the competition, and UEFA has already seized the other 12 million Euros due to Milan for violating UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations. It’s not a great spot to be in after all the club has went through over the last five years, and that will hurt them in their hunt to make the Champions League once more. This weekend, they will be taking on Fiorentina and they are aiming to stay in the top four.   More

    Serie A SPAL vs Chievo Verona Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com There’s a lot at stake for SPAL this Serie A season. The small club has one of the most colored histories of any team in Italy. SPAL have twice declared bankruptcy and twice risen from the ashes over the past 13 years, and their most recent return has been worthy of a Hollywood film. After being   More

    Juventus vs Inter Milan Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com It’s Juventus’ title to lose. Juventus are heavy favorites per the Serie A futures odds to win their eighth straight league championship this year. They continue to set the bar higher and higher, and they are currently eight points ahead of second-place Napoli more than a third of the way through   More

  • Betcris.com There is a clear delineation of power in Serie A through the first third of the season, and it will be interesting to see if that holds over the course of the campaign. Juventus are head and shoulders in front of the pack, but a second tier has emerged that is breaking away from the rest of the teams in Serie A. Napoli and Inter Milan are currently in second and third place in the table, and they have five points on the rest of the field headed into this weekend’s matches. There is a crowded field looking to catch them behind those two, and AS Roma will have a good chance to narrow the gap at home against Inter Milan this weekend.   More

    Serie A Lazio vs AC Milan Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com There are going to be plenty of ramifications when Lazio and AC Milan square off on Sunday evening in Italy’s capital. Lazio and AC Milan are out to grab spots in the Champions League after missing out and being sent to the Europa League instead last season, and Lazio are currently sitting in fourth   More

  • Betcris.com It’s a great time to be an Inter Milan fan. Inter Milan are in a great position to advance in the Champions League despite being drawn into a group with Barcelona and Tottenham, and they are currently in second place in Serie A. They are out to keep the good times rolling against Atalanta on Sunday morning. Atalanta are currently sitting in 10th place, and they have been playing very good football in recent weeks to move up the standings.   More

  • Betcris.com If you squint at the records a little bit, you might think that Lazio and SPAL are the same team. After all, these are the only two sides in Serie A that have yet to draw, and their records are the inverse of each other. However, while Lazio’s 6-0-4 record has them in a comfortable spot in fifth place in the league, SPAL’s 4-0-6 record has them in 15th place coming into this match. No matter what happens here, the two side’s will continue to have inverted records after the game which is an interesting little tidbit to note.   More

    Serie A - AC Milan vs Sampdoria Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com Sampdoria are off to a great start this year. They are in fifth place in Serie A, and they are looking to return to European play for the first time in four years. The club already has some quality results this season, and they are looking to chalk up another result against a blue blood when they face AC Milan on Sunday. AC Milan are all the way down in 12th place, but they are just three points back of Sampdoria and they could pass a lot of teams with a win.   More

    Serie A Frosinone vs Empoli Preview

    By Jonathan Willis

    Betcris.com Last season was a great one for both Frosinone and Empoli. Both clubs have been in the lower tiers of Italian football for much of their history, with Frosinone only spending one season in Serie A and Empoli spending just 12 seasons in the top flight prior to this year. Empoli and Frosinone both   More
