The race is on! Napoli are catching up with the Champions of Italy and only a single point separates the two sides from first and second place. Inter’s were denied their fourth consecutive win when they drew against Bologna at home over the weekend. AC Milan were also denied their third back to back victory, as tough opponents Fiorentina held their ground and a goalless draw was enough to avoid seeing the Rossoneri climb to third place. Roma’s walk of shame was inevitable after losing 3-1 to Torino, a match which they desperately needed to win as they face Inter and Napoli next. Serie A betting fans will be happy with the upcoming action for the weekend, as Sunday night football has Roma and Inter battling it out for a fight for third place. We’ll delve a little deeper to discover what information you should be looking at when formulating your bet on Serie A for the weekend.
Bet on Roma vs Inter
The two sides have been rivals from the early days of Italian football and the rivalry has only gotten more intense. Roma will need to win this one before the international break or risk being sunk further down the table. Roma are joint with Napoli as the team who scored most goals in Serie A and five of their six games finished with four or more goals and it’s a perfect opportunity to bet on over 3.5 goals. Inter on the other hand, only managed to find the net eight times in six games, the lowest scoring team from the top five in the table.
Roma are the favourites in front of their own crowd, with odds currently at 21/20 to emerge victorious, however, they’re not in the best form, having won just two matches out of their last six in all competitions. Inter on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last five Serie A matches, winning three and drawing two. Inter’s star forward Icardi is the man to watch, as he now has scored six goals in six games. Think it will be a game full of action? Try betting on both teams to score as odds are at 3/5. From six games played, Inter managed to find the net in five and judging by the passionate rivalry between the two sides, it will be an interesting one to bet on.
Bet on Napoli
Napoli are only a point shy of first place Juve but will be looking for all three points in their next encounter against Atalanta. Betting on Napoli to win is definitely one to add to your accumulator bet as odds are currently at 3/5. Napoli are unbeaten so far this season and have looked very convincing by their style of play. José Callejón has bagged five goals in their first six games of the season and Atalanta will need something special to stop the Spanish forward from inflicting damage to their defensive line. Napoli might dominate the game and betting on both teams to score might not be the best option, considering that Napoli have only conceded five goals in their six opening matches. If you’re feeling adventurous, try handicap betting. Odds for Napoli to win with a goal difference of two goals are at 8/5.
Bet on Juve
Juve impressed in Europe this week with an iconic four nil thrashing away from home against Dinamo Zagreb. The Bianconeri are on the road again but this time they will travel to Florence to face struggling Empoli in their quest for three points. Betting on Juve to win will return a €13.20 from a €10 bet, not surprising since Empoli only managed to bag four points from six games. For a better price, try handicap betting that Juve will win with a difference of three goals, as odds are currently at 23/10. Juve scored nine goals in three games in all competitions, which gives reason to believe that Juve are more than capable of dominating the game against Empoli on Sunday.
