Betting on Serie A – Match Day 26

February 21, 2017

The top seven teams of the Serie A table secured wins last weekend but there wasn’t much movement in rankings. Juve kept a firm grip on the title after cruising past Palermo, in what all Serie A betting fans considered a routine win. Roma put four past the ex-Manchester City keeper Joe Hart while Napoli’s win over Chievo marked their third consecutive win. Inter robbed Bologna of a point with a late goal, which was enough to seal the deal. Atalanta are the team to watch this season, as they’re now unbeaten in their last five games and are on a three game winning streak. With so much betting information to analyse, we’ll direct you at the most important data you should be referring to before making a bet on Serie A for the weekend.

Bet on Inter vs Roma

Two of the biggest clubs in Italian football will go head to head on Sunday night in what we expect to be a hard fought match for three golden points, one which would give bragging rights to the winners. Roma and Inter have been rivals since the dawn of Serie A and Inter will be looking to get their revenge after they lost at the Stadio Olimpico back in October.

Francesco Totti

Inter are the slight favourites but there isn’t much between the two. Odds for Inter to win stand at 31/20 and 17/10 on Roma. Roma are the second highest scoring team of the Serie A with 54 goals in 25 matches played and have found the net 13 times in their last five games alone. Inter, on the other hand, only found the net seven times from their last five matches in all competitions and will need to get creative to get past Wojciech Szczęsny, as the Giallorossi only conceded three. Odds for over 2.5 goals is priced at 4/6, well worth adding to your accumulator. Both teams are desperate to collect all three points, so both teams to score will also be a good option, priced at 11/20.

Betting on Juve

Juve have a tough mid-week match against Porto away from home but the Bianconeri have enough weapons in their arsenal to overcome Empoli over the weekend. The league leaders will be aiming to secure their seventh consecutive win and Serie A betting enthusiasts will put their money on the home side. In their last five games, Juve found the net 11 times and have only conceded twice but only one game ended in over 2.5 goals. A straight bet on Juve to win won’t return much with odds of 1/7, however, it would be more profitable if you try handicap betting on Juve, as odds are priced at 41/100. Four from their last five ended with a goal difference of two or more and Juve also finished the first half in the lead. Half time betting is worth considering, knowing the offensive style of football Juve enjoy. The hosts to score first comes in at 3/10 and odds for one team to score are at 21/50.

Bet on Napoli vs Atalanta

Napoli are one of those teams where Serie A betting fans expect them to win, week in week out. They are the highest scoring team of the Italian League with 60 goals and found the net 15 times in their last five games alone! Their attacking dexterity is made up of various young talent, including Mertens, Callejon and Insigne and the trio will pose serious threats to Atalanta’s defence. Atalanta are now unbeaten in their last five games and are sporting three successive wins. Their goalless draw to Torino is what upset their perfect form, as they would have completed five consecutive wins. Napoli are the favourites to emerge victorious with odds set at 13/25 but don’t write off the visitors just yet. While it’s a daunting task to collect all three points at the Stadio San Paolo, Atalanta have shown great spirit, effectively winning their big games against Inter, Napoli & Roma.

Atalanta are priced at 27/5 to snatch a win but try double chance betting on Atalanta to add security to your bet. Odds for double chance are set at 6/4.
