OUR man in Rome and resident Serie A expert Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) looks ahead to Sunday's action, sharing his best bets from the peninsula.
Fiorentina v Udinese | Sunday 2nd September 2018, 17:00 | Eleven Sports
Fiorentina have started with a tremendous win against Chievo last week.
I expect them to win again when they face a dodgy Udinese at the Artemio Franchi.
As said, the offensive skills of their attacking trio are something much intriguing and simply too much for the Bianconeri.
Fiorentina to win and Over 1.5 Goals is 19/20 (Ladbrokes).
Torino v Spal | Sunday 2nd September 2018, 19:30
Torino have plenty of potential up front, with the duo of Simone Zaza and Andrea Belotti a privilege for a medium sized team.
They’ve showed some of their potential against Inter and I am expect them to finish off Spal easily on their home ground.
Torino to win and Under 4.5 Goals is 20/23 (Ladbrokes).
Lazio v Frosinone | Sunday 2nd September 2018, 19:30
Lazio should get their first win against one of the weakest sides of Serie A.
The Biancocelesti have proved to be a goalscoring machine at the Olimpico, and I am backing this trend to pay out again.
Lazio to win and Over 2.5 Goals is 4/6 (Ladbrokes).
Chievo v Empoli | Sunday 2nd September 2018, 19:30
I am betting on Empoli’s chances at the Bentegodi in this match.
Since their admirable offensive style, I am backing on their goals to flow again.
Both Teams To Score (10/11 10BET) appeal at such a price, since this outcome has been a constant in their previous Serie B campaign.
Atalanta v Cagliari | Sunday 2nd September 2018, 19:30
I am backing Both Teams To Score (20/23 Ladbrokes) here on a different reason.
The Bergamaschi hosts have played three intense game against Roma and in Europe League, so fatigue should play a decisive role on Sunday.
On the other hand, they are clearly on another level compared to Cagliari so, despite probably conceding something, I cannot see them going down without fighting.
Sampdoria v Napoli | Sunday 2nd September 2018, 19:30
Napoli are still providing the same attractive football we have seen last season.
Their offensive potential is even better than last year, with Arek Milik 100% fit in the squad.
I expect Sampdoria to concede something at Marassi, and more than two goals should arrive easily.
Over 2.5 Goals is attractive at 8/11 (Betfair).
