Juventus are back on top of Italy’s Serie A and look likely to stay there this weekend with an inviting fixture away from home against bottom club SPAL.

Lazio are now in second place following their 2-1 defeat of fellow title challengers Internazionale last weekend, which pushed the Milan club into third position.

The battle for European places outside of the top four for next season is tight with only six points separating fifth-placed Roma and 10th-placed Bologna.

Odds taken at Feb. 20


Serie A Pick 1: Fiorentina vs AC Milan

Fiorentina and AC Milan are both in patchy form and look a good prospect for a draw when they meet in Florence on Saturday.

BetOnline prices an all-square result at an attractive +215. Fiorentina are rated at +171 for a victory with favorites Milan at +162 on February 22, at Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence, at 2:45 pm EST.

In eighth place, Milan have lost, drawn and won in their last three fixtures suggesting they are blowing hot and cold.

Meanwhile, 13th-placed Fiorentina have lost twice and won once in their last three games. Again, this points towards them being in a similar run of form to the Milanese.

Fiorentina will be in buoyant mood after their 5-1 hammering of Sampdoria last weekend. However, the Genoese club Sampdoria are struggling in 17th place.

Milan scored a 1-0 win against Torino last weekend in the wake of their 4-2 defeat in the derby against Internazionale.

Prior to that win, Fiorentina had been beaten 3-1 by Juventus and 2-1 by high-flying Atalanta.

Milan scored a 1-0 win against Torino last weekend in the wake of their 4-2 defeat in the derby against Internazionale.

They previously drew 1-1 with Hellas Verona.

Fiorentina have drawn seven times in this campaign while winning seven games and losing 10.

Milan have not drawn away from home in 12 fixtures – a run that must end some time.

But they have been held five times at home while winning 10 games and losing nine in total.

Pick: Draw +215

Serie A Pick 2: Torino vs Parma

Parma look a good prospect for a win away from home on Sunday against a Torino side who have lost their last five Serie A fixtures.

BetOnline rate Parma as +220 shot for a victory which looks inviting given the home side’s poor form on February 23, at Stadio Olimpico Grande, Turin, at 9:00 am EST.

Torino are favored somewhat surprisingly at +119 with the draw at +230.

They have slumped from ninth place to 14th during their recent poor spell which has included a 7-0 thumping at home by Atalanta followed by a 4-0 defeat against struggling Lecce.

Coach Walter Mazzarri was replaced by Moreno Longo but the turmoil in Turin  has continued.

Those results – which had been preceded by a 2-1 home defeat by Sassuolo – cost coach Walter Mazzarri his job on February 4.

Mazzarri was replaced by Moreno Longo but the turmoil in Turin has continued.

Torino was defeated 3-1 by Sampdoria in Longo’s first game in charge. That was followed by a 1-0 reverse against Milan last Monday night.

Parma won away from home 1-0 at Sassuolo last weekend.

That followed a 2-2 draw at Cagliari and a 1-0 defeat away against Lazio.

Parma have the ninth-best away record in the competition with four wins, four draws and four defeats.

Torino’s home record is only the 14th-best in Serie A after four wins, two draws and a telling six defeats on their own patch.

Pick: Parma +220

Serie A Pick 3: Roma vs Lecce

Roma are flying high in fifth place but have lost their last three games.

On Sunday they come up against a Lecce team who are in 16th place but have won their last three fixtures.

That surely makes BetOnline’s price of +680 for a Lecce victory an inviting widely-priced opportunity given both teams’ recent form.

The draw may be more likely and again that is priced attractively at +420.

Roma are favorites at -303 and home advantage will count for a lot in the Stadio Olimpico.

The recent slide by Roma is no surprise. They have actually lost five of their last seven league games while winning only once.

But Lecce could be worth watching for a successful trip to the capital on February 23, at Stadio Olimpico, Rome, 12:00 pm EST.

The recent slide by Roma is no surprise. They have actually lost five of their last seven league games while winning only once.

The current depression began with a surprise 4-2 defeat away at Sassuolo.

Then came a 3-2 defeat at home against Bologna and then a 2-1 setback at Atalanta last weekend.

Lecce had been on a miserable run of five defeats in six before their form picked up.

The current sequence began with a 4-0 home defeat of Torino. That was followed by an impressive 3-2 win at Napoli and then a 2-1 win at home against bottom club SPAL last weekend.

Pick: Draw +420
