Meanwhile, Napoli look to close gap against Frosinone, whilst AC Milan host Torino
The 15th round of action in Italy’s Serie A promises to be pivotal with current league champions and table toppers Juventus set to welcome high-flying Inter Milan on Friday night (7 December). In addition, Napoli will be hoping to close the gap at the top of the table when they host Frosinone, and AC Milan welcome Torino to the San Siro.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, Juventus host Inter Milan in the most mouth-watering of this round of games. Juventus are the runaway league leaders this term, sitting eight points clear of Napoli in second place having dropped just two points all season – in addition, they re scoring at over two goals per game while their defence is leaking less than a goal a game.
Inter, meanwhile, sit third in the table, 11 points behind Juventus but with a squad that can come close to matching the champions – on paper, at least. Inter have taken four points from their last two league outings but now face their biggest test of the season so far.
And it is champions Juventus who come into this clash as the clear favourites to claim bragging rights. You can back the champions to take all three points at just 1.57, while Inter are out at 6.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.80, according to Oddsshark.
And we fancy this to end honours even as Inter give Juventus a real contest. A 1-1 draw is priced at 7.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$35 pay out, while a combo bet of a draw with both teams to score comes in at 5.00.
Napoli to take all three points against Frosinone
The next day, Napoli host lowly Frosinone hoping to stay in touch with title rivals Juventus. Carlo Ancelotti’s side sit second in the table and come into this weekend’s fixture unbeaten in their last 11 games across all competitions – they are also scoring at two goals per game in the league.
Frosinone, in stark contrast, sit next to bottom in the table with just one win and eight points to their name. They are scoring at just over 0.5 goals per game while leaking over two goals per game – relegation form in anyone’s book.
It is therefore of very little surprise that Napoli come into this game as the overwhelming favourites to pick up the win. You can back the home side to wrap up the points at just 1.14, while Frosinone are all the way out at 15.00 to pull off a shock victory – a draw is priced in the middle at 8.00.
And this should be a comfortable afternoon’s work for Napoli. A comfortable, 2-0 win for the home side is priced at 6.50, while you could triple your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 3.00.
Milan looking for third straight win
And finally, AC Milan welcome Torino to the San Siro on Sunday looking to make it three wins in a row across all competitions. The Rossoneri sit fourth in the table, just four points behind city rivals in third, and could put real pressure on their neighbours with a timely win this weekend.
Torino, however, have arguably been the surprise package of the Serie A season so far. They sit sixth in the standings, three points behind Lazio in fifth, although they have probably drawn a couple too many matches which they could have turned into wins.
And with home advantage, it is Milan who come into this one as favourites to make it three wins in a row. You can back the Rossoneri to take all three points at just 1.72, with Torino out at 5.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.50.
We are expecting Milan to edge a close encounter. A 2-1 win for the home side is priced at 8.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$42.50 pay out, while you could more than triple your money by backing a combo bet of a home win and both teams to score, which comes in at 3.60.
