Roma hasn’t finished as high as third in Italian Serie A since 2018, but that’s where the club sits heading into its match with Udinese on Paramount+ on Sunday. Although Udinese is 10th in the league standings, it has scored the same number of goals this season as Roma (39). Scoring could be at a premium when the teams meet for the second time this season, but Udinese found the back of the net four times when they last played in September.

Italian Serie A picks for Udinese vs. Roma
Before you tune in to Sunday’s match, you need to see the Italian Serie A picks from betting expert Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine’s top soccer editor for more than five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups, and past performances to make the most informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
Sutton finished 2022 as SportsLine’s top soccer expert with a 165-130-2 mark, returning nearly $2,200 for $100 players. He also excelled in Serie A with a 63-39-1 mark, returning nearly $1,600.
For Roma vs. Udinese, Sutton is picking the match to finish under 2.5 goals at -160 odds. Predicting when Udinese’s attack will show up in recent fixtures has been difficult to pin down, as it’s been held off the score sheet in two of its last six matches, but scored three against AC Milan on March 18. Udinese played to a 2-2 draw against Monza in its last outing, but Roma’s opponents have combined for the second-fewest shots on target this season (88).
Much of the focus on Roma will be how the club chooses to attack without the services of Paulo Dybala (hamstring) and Tammy Abraham (shoulder). Those two have accounted for 28.2% of Roma’s total shots in league play this season. Perhaps someone like midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum could produce magic for Roma, but he’s only scored twice since March 12. As a team, Roma has failed to score in three of its last five outings across all competitions.
“Paulo Dybala and Tammy Abraham, who’ve combined for 17 goals and nine assists in Serie A play, are likely to miss Sunday’s clash with Udinese after suffering injuries on Thursday,” Sutton told SportsLine. “Roma is already one of the best defensive teams in the league, and with their offensive firepower sidelined, I could see this match being an extremely cagey affair.”
Roma are a solid favorite against Udinese, according to the latest Serie A odds, being -127 to win.
The over/under is set at 2.5 goals.
