Serie A Betting: ll three of Italy’s representatives in the Champions League this week were victorious, but can they carry that form over into the weekend’s league action? Let’s look at the current Sportsbook odds and see if we can find some value.
Milan vs. Sampdoria
After their 2-0 win in France in midweek, league leaders travel to Sampdoria this weekend looking to claim another three points, but will they be able to do so? Sampdoria are continuing their impressive home form from last season as they have won four, drawn four and lost just a single game in front of their own fans this season. However, their fans will be baying for a goal this weekend as the last three of Sampdoria’s home games have finished 0-0. Milan are in excellent form and have won all of their last five matches and have kept clean sheets in the last three. They will be very confident of extending their league lead this weekend, but Sampdoria are no pushovers at home and we will feel that both sides will walk away with a point. Back the draw @ 2.82 at (those odds are courtesy Sportsbetting.com).
Parma vs. Inter Milan
In action early on Sunday morning are Inter Milan and they host Parma at the San Siro. Inter have being have a rough time of late and prior to their 1-0 win over FC Twente in the Champions League on Wednesday they had gone five games without victory. Will that win over the Dutch side boost their confidence and see them get something from this game? Parma are draw specialists this season and have drawn almost 50% of their 13 games played so far but they are undefeated in their last three games with two wins and a draw to their name. They will feel that with Inter’s problems they can get something, and so do we but we feel this game could end in any of the three possible results. But 8 of the last 10 of Inter’s league games and all of the last 11 of Parma’s league matches have had under 2.5 goals, so that is where our money is. This bet is available @ 1.56.
Roma vs. Palermo
The final Serie A game of the weekend see Palermo host Roma on Sunday evening at the Stadio Renzo Barbera. After losing four games in a row recently Palermo have turned things around and have taken all three points in three of their last four matches and now sit in the top half of the table in 7th place. However, Roma are in exceptional form following their poor start to the season and are unbeaten in 8 games and are up to 5th in the league. We have a feeling that this game could end as a draw, but we’re not confident on this, so as both sides are scoring plenty of late and conceding a few goals we’re backing over 2.5 goals in this fixture @ 1.82.
Good luck this weekend.
