Black and Greens to Beat Another Lower Ranked Opponent

November 30, 2018


Sassuolo v Udinese – 2nd December – 14:00 BST

Sassuolo is yet to lose to a team positioned below it on the Italian Serie A ladder and the Black and Greens are the best way to play on this week’s 10-match championship coupon.

Eighth on the Italian Serie A ladder, Sassuolo has played seven league games versus lower ranked opponents for four wins and three draws. The middle of the Italian Serie A ladder is where Sassuolo resides currently and where the Black and Greens are likely to end the competition, whereas Udinese is set for another fight to avoid the drop. Udinese is 16th on the Italian Serie A ladder and, while the Little Zebras have not received their just rewards in some of their matches, even expected points disciples only rank them 14th.

Sassuolo and Udinese have faced 10 common Italian Serie A opponents and, according to one’s collateral form analysis, the Black and Greens enjoy a 5-3-2 advantage over the Little Zebras, including a 3-0-0 edge when one just counts games featuring teams in the top four. That Sassuolo has fared better than Udinese against Juventus, Napoli and Lazio is another indicator that the Black and Greens are genuinely superior to the Little Zebras and, therefore, well worth backing at odds close to even money on Sunday at 1.95  with Betway. The most recent Italian Serie A clash between Sassuolo and Udinese resulted in a 2-1 away victory for the Black and Greens.

Sampdoria v Bologna – 1st December – 19:30 BST

TOP TIP! – Sampdoria to beat Bologna @ 1.95

The home team has won each of the last six Italian Serie A games between Sampdoria and Bologna and one is betting on that sequence continuing when the aforementioned sides get together in Genoa on Saturday at 1.95  with BetVictor. It has been a while between drinks for both Sampdoria and Bologna – Samp have not won any of their last five matches, while the Red and Blues are winless in their last six games – but the statistical data suggests this weekend’s hosts are the stronger of the sides.

Sampdoria is six rungs above Bologna on the Italian Serie A ladder, Samp rates better than the Red and Blues on expected points and, according to one’s collateral form analysis, the former holds a 6-1-4 lead over the latter. Odds of roughly even money are more than acceptable about a Sampdoria win.


Torino v Genoa – 2nd December – 14:00 BST

TOP TIP! – Torino to beat Genoa @ 1.80

Not even a late red card could stop Torino beating Genoa 2-1 on the road in their most recent Italian Serie A meeting and the 11th-ranked Maroons make one’s weekend punting portfolio at home to the 14th-ranked Red and Blues on Sunday at 1.80 with Black Type.

Torino’s Italian Serie A form has been up and down – for example, the Maroons won 4-1 at Sampdoria and then proceeded to lost 1-2 at home to Parma – but one’s third and final selection rates better than Genoa on several measures.

The actual Italian Serie A ladder, expected points and one’s collateral form analysis – Torino boasts a 4-2-2 advantage over Genoa – supports backing the Maroons on its home pitch.


SPAL 3-1-4

Fiorentina 2-0-6

Sampdoria 6-1-4

Milan 5-1-4

Frosinone 3-1-6

Sassuolo 5-3-2

Torino 4-2-2

Chievo 1-2-6

Roma 3-2-4

Atalanta 4-2-2
