Seven of Torino’s nine Italian Serie A games have gone over two and a half goals and one likes the chances of the Maroons featuring in another high-scoring match when they visit Internazionale on Wednesday.
Torino took part in goalless Italian Serie A games against strugglers Empoli and Pescara but each of its seven other divisional matches have exceeded two and a half goals, including Sunday’s 2-2 home drew versus Lazio. Torino’s Italian Serie A statistics rank it fifth highest for shots for and eighth highest for shots against – the Maroons are the only side in the top eight for both pieces of data.
Five of Internazionale’s nine Italian Serie A games have gone over two and a half goals, including its last-start 1-2 loss at Atalanta. Inter has fired off 149 shots in its nine Italian Serie A matches, which is more than all bar Roma, Juventus and Napoli. Inter has not given up all that many shots but it has conceded 12 Italian Serie A goals and it has kept just two clean sheets in its dozen competitive games across all tournaments. Furthermore, one of Inter’s shut outs occurred in a UEFA Europa League home match versus Southampton that the Saints dominated for long periods.
Last season’s corresponding Italian Serie A fixture resulted in a 2-1 away victory for Torino and there are many reasons why one is surprised that Marathonbet is offering -107 about Wednesday’s game between Internazionale and the Maroons going over two and a half goals as well.
One Italian Serie A team has a 100 per cent record in goals betting and that team is Cagliari because each of its nine divisional matches has gone over two and a half goals, the latest high-scoring game featuring the Red and Blues being their crazy 3-5 home loss to Fiorentina on Sunday.
Cagliari visits Lazio on Wednesday and one is keen on the odds of -156 that 188Bet is listing about the Red and Blues participating in yet another Italian Serie A match that goes over two and a half goals. Cagliari has conceded an Italian Serie A-high 168 shots but it is 10th on the ladder because it has converted 16 of its 90 shots to score more goals than every side except Roma, Torino, Napoli and Juventus.
Lazio drew 2-2 with Torino in its most recent Italian Serie A game and, while the White and Sky Blues have kept three divisional clean sheets, it is well worth noting that they have not shut out any team ranked higher than 16th.
Finally, the midweek Italian Serie A round will get under way on Tuesday with a match between Genoa and Milan, a game that one thinks is likely to go under two and a half goals at -115 with Marathonbet.
Only Juventus has allowed for Italian Serie A shots than Genoa because the Red and Blues have given up just 74 at an average of 9.25 per game. Unsurprisingly, five of Genoa’s eight Italian Serie A matches have gone under two and a half goals, including three of its four divisional home games – the exception was its 3-1 defeat of Cagliari in which all four goals took place in the 66th minute or later.
Milan’s Italian Serie A shot count is the lowest of the top six sides and, on the back of a 1-0 home win over Juventus, one expects the Red and Blacks to adopt a careful approach.
