Well with a week off the Yank has been given sometime to allow his recent picks to cool off. With just a five hundred record the last two weekends I am currently at 31-11. Still an impressive record, but the crystal ball is beginning to fog up and Nostradamus hasn’t been as prominent in foreseeing as past weekends. But without further adieu lets take a look at this week.
Three teams will definitely lose this week. Which ones? Livorno will lose to Palermo 2-0, Atalanta will be embarrassed by Di Natale & Co. 4-0, and Catania will lose to Cagliari 1-0. How do I know this? It’s simple. all three losers have not won a match this year. So I’ll go with recent history.
Juventus, despite not having Del Piero, will go on to beat Fiorentina anyway 1-0. Juve is simply that good. And speaking of good teams I hear this Inter squad isn’t bad. So why not pick Inter to go on the road against another good squad, Genoa, and win in a shootout 3-2. Napoli and Bologna should be an interesting match considering the two squads sit right next to one another in the group table. I like Napoli to win 2-1 simply because Marco Di Vaio hasn’t scored at will this season.
Parma should be able to make easy work of Siena 2-1. Chievo Verona will continue to surprise people by winning close matches. This week over Bari 1-0. Lazio VS Sampdoria should make for an interesting home match for Lazio. I can’t pick against Sampdoria right now and they should remain a top team with a 3-1 win. And in the SATO Match of the Week expect Roma to pounce on AC Milan and dominate the reeling club 3-0 with at least one Totti goal.
