Serie A betting focuses on Inter Milan and AS Roma and the odds favor Inter Saturday.

Inter Milan is favored against longtime rivals AS Roma in the big matchup in Italy's Serie A this weekend. Inter Milan was the betting favorite posted at +125 (according to the new soccer betting odds section at OddsShark.com) with AS Roma at +200. The draw line was posted at +250.

Roma is in first place in the league table with 18 points and Inter Milan is in fourth place with 14 points. Last season at home, Inter lost to Roma 3-1. [ See the full Inter vs Roma matchup report ]

This match may be a defensive battle. In the six matches these teams have played Roma has only conceded one goal while Inter has only conceded three. The two clubs are also pretty even on offense with Roma leading the league with 17 goals and Inter ranking second with 16 goals.

The Roma defense will have to keep tabs on Rodrigo Palacio, as he leads Inter Milan with three goals. Inter will be on the attack from the opening whistle and their midfield must be wary of the counterattack. So too must fans doing soccer betting on this Serie A matchup.

The Roma trio of Gervinho, Alessandro Florenzi and Adem Ljajic, who all have three goals apiece, will test the Inter defense in this match.

Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis has three clean sheets in a row, and the only goal he has allowed this season came in the third match.

Roma is in first place in the league table, and is the only team in the league that has yet to lose or draw. However, they have yet to face a great team, while Inter played to a 1-1 draw with Juventus and beat Fiorentina.
