Fiorentina vs. Torino (Saturday, 5.00pm)
The home side finished 10th in Italy's top flight last season, while Torino ended the campaign in 16th, only five points clear of the relegation zone.
We say: Fiorentina 2-1 Torino
Torino disappointed last season, but the Turin outfit still have a lot of quality in the final third of the field. We fancy the visitors to score on Saturday but expect Fiorentina to have too much over the course of the 90 minutes, backing the home side to start their campaign with a narrow win.
Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
Hellas Verona vs. Roma (Saturday, 7.45pm)
Paulo Fonseca's side finished fifth in Italy's top flight last term, while Verona impressively claimed ninth on their return to Serie A, having earned promotion from Serie B in 2018-19.
We say: Hellas Verona 0-2 Roma
Verona are certainly capable of making it a very difficult contest for Roma, but we expect the visitors to pick up all three points this weekend. Roma have won their last four Serie A matches against Verona, and we are finding it difficult to back against Fonseca's side in this contest.
Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.
