Each of Cagliari’s 10 Italian Serie A matches have gone over two and a half goals and the chances of the Red and Blues continuing that streak is an alluring proposition.
Forty goals have been scored in Cagliari’s 10 Italian Serie A games, with the individual match totals being three (five times), four (three times), five (once) and eight (once). On Wednesday, Cagliari lost 1-4 at Lazio and there were over two and a half goals after just 28 minutes of action.
Only four of Palermo’s 10 Italian Serie A games have gone over two and a half goals, which perhaps explains why the bookmaking fraternity is offering relatively big odds about Monday’s match exceeding that line. However, it is worth noting that Cagliari conceded an Italian Serie A goal at home to the division’s cellar dweller, Crotone, and Palermo’s defensive record is the league’s third worst.
One was expecting bookmakers to be quoting odds of around -182 about Cagliari and Palermo combining for over two and a half goals in their Italian Serie A clash so one simply has to have a crack when there is odds of -130 up for grabs with 188Bet.
Juventus versus Napoli is the clear game of the Italian Serie A round and, with the latter experiencing selection problems in its forward department, the former is worth backing at odds of -115 to win Saturday’s battle between the sides in first and third.
Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik is injured and his most capable understudy, Manolo Gabbiadini, is unavailable because of suspension. How Napoli wished that it could call upon the services of Gonzalo Higuain but last season’s Italian Serie A top goal scorer plays for Juventus now.
According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Juventus trails Napoli 1-0-2 at this early juncture but the team news is so negative for the Partenopei that is one is willing to turn a blind eye to that data for once. Juventus has won 21 consecutive Italian Serie A home matches and the respective shot statistics of the Old Lady and Napoli is a positive as far as the championship leaders are concerned. Juventus has fired off 107 more shots than its Italian Serie A opponents, whereas Napoli’s shot difference is plus 61.
Juventus won last term’s corresponding Italian Serie A fixture 1-0 and it is not often that one can bet on the Old Lady at close to even money to win a domestic home game.
Finally, Marathonbet is laying odds of -106 about Monday’s Italian Serie A match between Udinese and Torino going over two and a half goals and that offer is too good to miss.
Seven of Udinese’s 10 Italian Serie A games have gone over two and a half goals, while eight of Torino’s 10 divisional matches have exceeded that line. Last season’s corresponding Italian Serie A fixture was a remarkable game in which there were six goals, five of them scored on the road by Torino.
Roma is the solitary Italian Serie A side that has had more shots for and against in its divisional matches than Torino and Udinese’s defensive numbers are not overly impressive.
