Follow Torino, Inter and Quagliarella in Serie A

Torino v Sassuolo – 12th May – 11:30 BST

Betting on Italian Serie A games at this stage of a season is not a pursuit for those punters faint of heart but one thinks the wagering fraternity can trust Torino to do the business in its home match against Sassuolo on Sunday.

Torino remains in the hunt for one of Italian Serie A’s UEFA spots and only its city rival, Juventus, has suffered fewer league defeats than the Maroons. It has been a while since either Torino or Sassuolo were on the wrong side of a result – the Maroons are unbeaten in seven games and the Black and Greens have gone six matches since losing 1-2 at Bologna – but, according to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Torino is good value for its 15-point lead over Sassuolo after 35 rounds of the championship. Torino enjoys an 8-6-5 Italian Serie A collateral form edge over Sassuolo, including a progressive count of 6-2-1. What that statistic supports is one’s view Torino is significantly superior to Sassuolo because the Maroons have fared much better than the Black and Greens when they have faced Italian Serie A’s top teams. Add in Torino having something tangible for which to play compared to a Sassuolo side that cannot be relegated and can only climb one rung on the Italian Serie A ladder – and even that is highly improbable – and the Maroons are worth supporting. Tomas Rincon is suspended for Torino so Sasa Lukic, who opened his Italian Serie A account versus Juventus last weekend, is set to start in central midfield.

Internazionale v Chievo – 13th May – 20:00 BST

TOP TIP! – Internazionale to beat Chievo @ 1.15

You will not get rich backing Internazionale to beat Chievo in their Italian Serie A game on Monday at @ 1.15  with Betway but you should not become poor, either. Internazionale has a lot on the line – the Black and Blues are one of six teams that could secure Italian Serie A’s two yet-to-be-allocated UEFA Champions League berths – and Chievo is astronomical odds to avoid collecting the wooden spoon. According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Internazionale boasts an imposing 18-1-0 advantage over Chievo, with 14th-ranked Parma being the only side against which the Black and Blues and the Flying Donkeys have performed to the same level. The only knock on Internazionale is two of its squad members are banned and one would rate both Danilo D’Ambrosio and Marcelo Brozovic as being among the best Black and Blues players.


Sampdoria v Empoli – 12th May – 14:00 BST

TOP TIP! – Fabio Quagliarella to score at any time versus Empoli @ 2.23

For one’s third Italian Serie A pick one toyed with Atalanta and Milan but ended up settling on Sampdoria striker Fabio Quagliarella to score at any time during his team’s home match versus relegation-threatened Empoli on Sunday at 2.23  with 888sport. Using one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis there is a clear value argument for backing Sampdoria to get the better of Empoli but one does not trust Samp because they have won just one of their last six league games and it was their home derby against Genoa. Quagliarella has scored in three of Sampdoria’s last four Italian Serie A matches, he netted one of Samp’s four goals in their 4-2 victory over Empoli in December’s reverse fixture and everyone associated with his club wants him to be the tournament’s leading marksman.


Atalanta 14-1-4

Cagliari 4-2-13

Fiorentina 5-3-11

Torino 8-6-5

Frosinone 6-2-11

Sampdoria 16-0-3

SPAL 3-2-14

Roma 5-1-13

Bologna 7-5-7

Internazionale 18-1-0
