Let’s check the latest Serie A news, stats, injury reports, and Serie A lines for Napoli vs AS Roma. We’ve got plenty of Serie A picks for you to consider.

Napoli: Heading to the Title

Three weeks ago, Napoli lost 1-0 to Inter Milan. Everybody thought the Azzurri were going to fall apart, but it has been the opposite. Since then, they’re 3-0-0 with nine goals for and only one against.

Most recently, they defeated Salernitana 2-0 with Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Victor Osimhen as the scorers. Osimhen is the league’s top scorer with 13 goals. Regarding the team, he’s followed by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia with seven. Speaking of Kvaratskhelia, he leads the team in assists with seven. He’s followed by Mario Rui with six and Piotr Zielinski with five. As you can see, we’re talking about a well-balanced squad.

As mentioned before, the Azzurri remained unbeaten when playing at home thanks to an 8-1-0 record. They’ve scored in all matches and finished with a clean sheet four times. Their only draw was against Lecce, while they already beat other powerhouses like Juventus. I’m sorry, they didn’t defeat Juventus, they demolished them 5-1.

The Azzurri are offering a -135 price in the sportsbook to win straight up. That’s a bargain considering we’re also talking about the top scoring team in the league with 46 goals. Spalletti truly believes that the best defense is a good offense.

AS Roma: Great Start to the Year

If the season ended today, AS Roma would qualify for the UEFA Europa League. That’s not good enough for Mourinho, who wants to return to the UEFA Champions League. In order to do that, the Giallorossi must finish in the top four. Defeating Napoli would be a huge step toward that goal.

Defeating Napoli will also allow them to keep momentum going. The Giallorossi are undefeated in 2023 thanks to a 4-1-0 record. Most recently, they defeated Spezia 2-0 with Stephan El Shaarawy and Tammy Abraham as the scorers.

Mourinho’s side also managed to advance to the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia after defeating Genoa 1-0. Paulo Dybala saved the day with a goal in the second half. Speaking of Dybala, he’s algo having a great season, enough to be the team’s top scorer with seven goals. He’s followed by Abraham with five. They’re one of the deadliest duos in the league.

AS Roma have been better when playing on the road, making them an even more tempting underdog to include in your soccer picks, especially at +390. They own a 6-3-1 record while they’ve lost three games at home. I can assure you that you won’t find a more tempting underdog than the Giallorossi.

  • Previous Matches: 163
  • Napoli Victories: 50 (186 goals)

The first leg between these two was pretty intense. First, the referee ended up showing seven yellow cards in total. Second, Napoli managed to win thanks to a late goal scored by Osimhen. That was Napoli’s fifth victory over AS Roma in their last 10 meetings while the Giallorossi won two.

You can expect a close contest. The total has gone under 2½ goals in four of their last five encounters. Plus, we’re talking about two of the best defensive units in the league. Napoli have allowed 14 goals in 19 games while AS Roma have allowed 16.

Napoli vs AS Roma Picks & Prediction

I won’t doubt Napoli again. That being said, I do expect AS Roma to put up a really good fight, enough for the home side to win by just one goal, like they did against Spezia, Bologna and Udinese – three teams not as good as Roma. I expect Osimhen to keep momentum going, but literally any Napoli player can end up saving the day. That’s how strong they believe in teamwork. No betting online upset here, but I can assure you it’s going to be a thrilling match.

The Napoli are listed at -135 in our Vegas Serie A lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Napoli , you have a chance to win $74. AS Roma are +390, offering a chance to win $390 on a $100 wager. The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Napolia 57.45% chance to win, with AS Roma at 20.41%.
