Serie A Predictions: Genoa Won’t Go Down Easy Against Napoli

Serie A Predictions: Genoa Won’t Go Down Easy Against Napoli

Enzo took a well-deserved break last week but he is back with three more Serie A betting predictions for matchday 24

Napoli v Genoa Prediction

Sat 17th Feb 14:00

Napoli’s title defence never really materialised and it’s now looking increasingly likely that they will not be involved in European football next year. The situation has gone from bad to worse since Walter Mazzarri’s takeover and they have only managed three wins in their last ten (W3 D2 L5). Those three victories came against Cagliari, Verona and Salernitana who all prop up the foot of the table.

In contrast, Genoa started the season badly but have gone from strength to strength. The Grifone’s first defeat in nine games (W3 D5 L1) came last week courtesy of in-form Atalanta.

Gilardino’s side have a decent record against the big teams and should prove to be more than a handful for Napoli on Saturday. They have beaten both Roman clubs and taken points from Inter and Juventus so Draw/Genoa Double Chance @ 11/8 looks like an excellent price.

Lazio v Bologna Prediction

Sun 18th Feb 11:30

Lazio produced a fantastic performance on Wednesday night to beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League however, they face another tough test domestically when Bologna come to the Olimpico. Bologna are currently in 5th place and are tied on points with Atalanta in 4th. The game could go either way and a draw is not out of the question but I am going to avoid the results market altogether. Instead, my Serie A betting prediction is for Joshua Zirkzee to score anytime @ 3/1. The Dutch forward has enjoyed a breakout season at Bologna and has contributed 8 goals and 3 assists so far.

Frosinone v Roma Prediction

Sun 18th Feb 17:00

My final Serie A betting prediction is for there to be Over 2.5 goals & BTTS @ 21/20 in Frosinone v Roma. In seven of Frosinones last ten the bet has landed. Since De Rossi has taken charge, Roma are a much more open side and over 2.5 goals & BTTS has been the outcome in three of his four games at the helm.
