Jose Mourinho and AS Roma, who are heavily favored in the Serie A odds, are on the verge of winning the UEFA Europa League. In the meantime, they must focus on getting back into the winning column in the Italian Serie A. Otherwise, they could finish the season out of the top six.
As for Salernitana, the Granata need at least one point to officially avoid relegation. They only lost one of their last five games, which makes them a really tempting underdog, especially at +675.
AS Roma: The Special One
Two seasons ago, AS Roma weren’t on the map. Then, they signed Jose Mourinho as the new manager and things dramatically changed. In Mourinho’s first season, the Wolves finished sixth in the Serie A and won the UEFA Conference League.
This season, they’re sixth in the Serie A and have already qualified for the UEFA Europa League Grand Finale, in which they’ll face Sevilla. That’s right, on Thursday, the Wolves drew 0-0 against Bayer Leverkusen in the second leg of the UEL semifinals, like we predicted. They won the first leg 1-0.
In other words, you can expect a highly motivated team that desperately needs to get back into the winning column in the Serie A since they failed to win any of their last five domestic games. Most recently, they drew 0-0 to Bologna.
It seems fair to point out that we’re talking about a well-balanced squad that has conceded 33 goals in 35 games. Regarding the attacking unit, Paulo Dybala with 11 goals and Tammy Abraham with eight are the ones you should keep an eye on.
As mentioned before, the Wolves come in as the Serie A betting favorites thanks to a -210 price. The fact that they’ve been considerably better when playing at home, where they’re 10-2-5, has a lot to do with it.
Salernitana: So Close …
With three games left, Salernitana need at least one point to officially avoid relegation, which was their top priority since the beginning of the season. In case you’re wondering, the draw is offering a +320 price, which could further improve via Serie A live betting.
Last Saturday, the Granata pulled off the stunner against Atalanta with a 1-0 victory. Antonio Candreva scored in stoppage time. They also won possession with 52% and finished with four shots on target, one more than the Nerazzurri. In other words, it was a neat performance.
Avoiding relegation should be enough motivation for them to go all-in right from the start, and for you to consider wager on them, but there’s more. Their attacking unit is led by Boulaye Dia, who has scored 15 goals. Only Victor Osimhen from Napoli and Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan have scored more with 23 and 20, respectively.
Regarding the Serie A lines, the Granata are offering a +675 price. That means you have the chance to win $675 per every $100 wagered on them. Keep in mind that they only lost one of their last six Serie A games on the road.
AS Roma vs Salernitana Head-to-Head
AS Roma suffered a bit more than expected in the first meeting between the two but still ended up fulfilling their role as betting online favorites. They won 1-0 thanks to Bryan Cristante, who scored in the 33rd minute. Curiously enough, the Granata won possession with 52 percent, but the Wolves finished with seven more shots in total.
The Wolves won four of the last five meetings between the two, finishing with a clean sheet twice. That’s why the total for Monday’s clash is set at 2½ goals with the under offering a -115 price in the sportsbook.

AS Roma vs Salernitana Picks and Prediction
AS Roma are the better team, no doubt about it, but the Wolves are tired after a very tough battle in Leverkusen. The good news is that they were able to advance even though Dybala didn’t play, which means he’ll be at 100 percent to face the Granata. Salernitana will put up a good fight, but that’s more than enough for me to recommend you bet on the home side winning a close one.
