Inter Milan’s prospects of a first Serie A title since 2010 have nosedived following a poor run of results but they have had some tough fixtures and we’re tipping them to get back on track versus Roma.

The visitors have also been out of sorts over the past month or so and are facing fresh speculation regarding key players during the current transfer window.

We’re kicking off our Inter Milan vs Roma betting predictions by snapping up 27/20 for a home win.

A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds

Inter were top of the table when holding Juventus to a goalless draw in Turin six weeks ago, but have slipped down to third after picking up just two points in four subsequent league games.

However, there wasn’t too much wrong with their last two displays, sharing the spoils with Lazio and Fiorentina.

At Artemio Franchi, the Nerazzurri led through leading scorer Mauro Icardi until Giovanni Simeone, son of Atletico Madrid manager and former Inter star Diego, equalised in injury time.

Icardi has been excellent this season, netting 18 times in Serie A, and he appeals at 15/4 to open the scoring in our Inter Milan vs Roma betting tips.

A Look At AS Roma’s Betting Odds

Last season’s runners-up Roma are in fifth this time around after only picking up one point from their last three games.

There was no disgrace in a 1-0 defeat at Juventus, but being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Sassuolo and then losing 2-1 there to Atalanta has set alarm bells ringing.

The Giallorossi went 2-0 down inside 20 minutes at Olimpico a week ago and could only respond through a solitary Edin Dzeko goal, despite Atalanta being reduced to 10 men for the second period.

Golden Boot hero Dzeko and Brazilian defender Emerson could be unsettled by rumours of a double swoop from Chelsea on the horizon.

Looking at the Inter Milan vs Roma odds, that all makes 22/1 for Icardi to score first in a 2-1 home win catch the eye.
