Sassuolo Calcio +155 vs Empoli FC +144
Both teams show a draw and a loss in their last couple of contests. Sassuolo drew 1-1 against Spezia and lost 2-4 to AC Milan. Empoli drew 2-2 against Fiorentina and lost 0-3 to Bologna.

Soccer Pick: Empoli FC
AC Milan -175 vs Venezia FC +440
Milan wasn’t in great form having lost 2 with a draw in 3 games, but on Dec. 22, AC dusted Empoli 4-2. Not only that, but the 2 losses make sense.
Napoli beat AC Milan 1-0. Liverpool bested AC 2-1 in a Champions League match on Dec. 7. On Sep. 22 last year, AC Milan beat Venezia 2-0. Expect a similar score on Sunday.
Soccer Pick: AC Milan
ACF Fiorentina +160 vs Torino FC +155
Torino will has won 2-of-5, which isn’t bad. But it’s not as good as what Fiorentina has done.
The slight underdog has won 3-of-5 with a couple of draws. On Sunday, star striker Dusan Vlahovic should play in a Fiorentina kit, making the road team the one to back.
Soccer Pick: Fiorentina
Atalanta BC -128 vs Udinese Calcio +300
The home underdog has a shot to pull off a shocker. Udinese is in good form. The dog has won 2 straight, both by 4-0 scores, against Crotone and Cagliari.
On Dec. 11, Udinese drew 1-1 against AC Milan. These two drew 1-1 in the last head-to-head. The odds make Udinese an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Udinese
Juventus Turin +119 vs AS Roma +210
Serie A’s top contest in Matchday 21 pits AS Roma against Juventus Turin. Juvy has won 4-of-5. The road team also won the last head-to-head.
But AS Roma is in good form with 3 victories and a draw in their last 5. Roma shouldn’t offer odds above +200. The home team is the play.
Soccer Pick: AS Roma
Lazio Rome +1 ½ -169 vs Inter Milano -1 ½ +121
The only team that has beaten Inter in their last 5 is Real Madrid in a Champions League contest. Other than the loss to Real, Milano has played great with a 3-0 win against AS Roma, a 4-0 victory over Cagliari, a 5-to-0 win against Salernitana and a Dec. 22, a 1-0 victory versus Torino.
Lazio is in decent form. Rome has won their last couple of matches, against Genoa and Venezia, by 3-1 scores. But although Lazio has a shot to make this close, laying -169 on the handicap doesn’t constitute value. Inter has won the last couple of head-to-head matches 3-1, making the +121 on Milano at -1 ½ more than acceptable.
Soccer Pick: Inter Milano
