False 9 Best Bets: AC Milan vs Juventus, Crotone vs AS Roma, Atalanta vs Parma, and Marseille vs Montpellier
False 9 Best Bets for Serie A and Ligue 1:
AC Milan vs Juventus
Can AC Milan remain unbeaten when they host reigning champions Juventus? One thing is for sure, this game will have massive implications for the race for the Scudetto. Remarkably, Milan haven’t lost in any of their last 27 Serie A games and have scored 2 plus goals in each of their last 17 Serie A games. This unbelievable run has led them atop of the table.
As for Juventus, they have been in splendid form other than the small hiccup against Fiorentina. They currently are 5th in the standings - 10 points adrift from AC Milan. This will be no small feat to recover from that deficit but with a win against AC Milan, it could be the springboard in re-capturing the title. If they lose, goodbye Scudetto. This is the type of game that I see Ronaldo rising to the occasion for Juventus to save their season.
For the betting person, if you’re going with under 2.5 goals for this game then more power to you! For me, I see goals and plenty of them. Both teams always seem to give up 1 goal, so I predict a 2-1 or 2-2 type of game.

Crotone vs AS Roma and Atalanta vs Parma
Not going to overly complicate things here. Two in-form teams against two bottom feeder teams. Atalanta look to be back to their all out of attack scoring goals at will while Roma take on the worst team in Serie A. Parma can not score and Crotone just gave up 6 goals to Inter Milan. If this parlay does not pan out, I lost all hope.

Marseille vs Montpellier
Marseille takes on Montpellier on Wednesday night in the hopes to remain in the hunt for Europa and Champions League Qualification. Recently, both teams suffered a dip in form and have only won 1 game out of their last 5. However, the positive for both of these teams is that they are returning to where they have been more successful this season - Marseille at home and Montpellier being away. In their last 5 home/away games, both are unbeaten. For me, this will be a hard-fought game where we see both teams to score (BTTS).
