Sassuolo v Empoli
Tuesday, 19:45
Live on ESPN and Betfair Live Video

Match Odds: Sassuolo 2.245/4, Empoli 3.711/4, The Draw 3.45

Sassuolo obtained their first Serie A victory of the campaign at Parma on matchday eight while Empoli were beaten 0-4 at home by Cagliari, so the natural conclusion from those results is that the home win is a big price. However, Sassuolo have won just twice in 14 Serie A outings as hosts and Empoli hadn't lost in six before their weekend aberration. Both sides have drawn a league-high four of their opening eight games.

Recommended Bet: Back the draw @ 3.45


Cagliari v AC Milan
Wednesday, 19:45
Live on BT Sport 2 and Betfair Live Video

Match Odds: Cagliari 3.55, AC Milan 2.226/5, The Draw 3.55

After an inauspicious start, Cagliari have really taken off in their last four matches, conquering Inter 4-1 and Empoli 4-0, as well as holding fourth-placed Sampdoria to a 2-2 draw. As with any Zdenek Zeman-coached team, there is plenty of entertainment along the way. Their fixtures average three goals, while AC Milan's rack up 3.5 - the joint-fifth and second highest figures in Serie A respectively - so over 2.5 goals is the obvious punt.

Recommended Bet: Back over 2.5 goals @ 1.84/5


Genoa v Juventus
Wednesday, 19:45
Live on BT Sport 1 and Betfair Live Video

Match Odds: Genoa 8.27/1, Juventus 1.558/15, The Draw 4.1

Juventus have a three-point lead at the top of Serie A following Roma's weekend draw with Sampdoria but if there is a fault to be picked, it is that they have conceded five goals in five games - keeping only one clean sheet - since surrendering their ten-match shutout streak. Genoa have netted five times in their last three encounters, with summer signings Alessandro Matri and Mauricio Pinilla scoring seven between them already.

Recommended Bet: Back Juventus not to keep a clean sheet @ 1.855/6


Verona v Lazio
Thursday, 19:45
Live on BT Sport 1 and Betfair Live Video

Match Odds: Verona 3.45, Lazio 2.285/4, The Draw 3.55/2

The statistics favour the Lazio triumph - they have won four in a row, whereas Verona have lost three in four - but the Gialloblu are decent enough hosts (one defeat in seven) to encourage slight caution. Instead, it is Lazio forward Filip Djordjevic's five goals in four appearances, including four in two away, that intrigues most, with the Serbian summer signing succeeding in lessening the capital club's dependence on Miroslav Klose.

Recommended Bet: Back Djordjevic to score @ 2.915/8
