This weekend's Serie A clash between Fiorentina and Roma, the top two teams in the league right now, promises to deliver. Inside you can find our soccer odds preview.

Odds Overview
Perusing over the Serie A soccer odds, we see there's nothing really separating these two outfits for Sunday. Fiorentina, also known as Viola, are currently favored at anywhere from +150 to +165 or so, which leaves a Roma win available at close to +190. A draw is approaching +225, with still a couple days left the lines to move.


Viola have been a surprise this season, as they currently are on top of the Serie A table. They've lost two straight matches, though, losing 2-1 away to Napoli in domestic play before falling 2-1 at home to Lech Poznan in the Europa League.

It was a bad overall performance from Fiorentina in the European defeat, although they care more about maintaining their top spot in the league over all else. Nikola Kalinic has paced the team with five league goals ahead of this weekend.

Another Great Sunday Fixture: Manchester United vs. Manchester City

The Yellow-Reds are right on the heels of Fiorentina, just one point back from the top spot. They're on a decent run of form, having gone unbeaten over three matches across all competitions, and the goals have been flowing. Roma has scored 11 goals over the last three matches and will try to keep it going against Viola on Sunday.

Miralem Pjanic and Mohamed Solah lead the team with four goals apiece, but the likes of Daniele De Rossi and Gervinho among others have done well too. Francesco Totti is still recovering from injury.


Serie A Pick
This is going to be a great match, as two Serie A contenders battle it out for the throne atop the table. Both teams are very talented, and with a lot on the line, we just don't see either team taking firm control over the match and doing enough to win. So, for this soccer pick, we'll add a draw as the most reasonable outcome in Firenze on Sunday.
