It’s the first time in history where two teams have won all their six opening matches in the Serie A campaign and it’s Juve and Napoli who have achieved this feat. Both sides have looked in scintillating form this season and it’s going to be a dramatic showdown when these two giants face each other head to head. AC Milan will host Roma next Sunday at the San Siro and we’re expecting the encounter to be a goal bonanza. Juve have a tricky match against Atalanta, who have faced most of the big dogs in the Italian league already and survived the storm. We’ll delve a little deeper into the most sensible bets for this week to help you make more informed decisions when betting on Serie A.
Bet on AC Milan vs Roma
Roma won their third consecutive win after overcoming Udinese but their next three points will be a tough test for Eusebio Di Francesco, the Roma head coach. Roma are on par on points with their opponents on Sunday, however, the Romans have a game in hand. The last time AC Milan recorded a victory against Roma was back in 2015, with their most recent encounter at the San Siro ending in 1-4.
There’s nothing to separate the two with regards to odds - a win for AC Milan is priced at 2.65 and 2.60 for Roma. The Rossoneri conceded eight goals in their opening six games, half the amount Roma conceded and we can’t imagine the clash ending in a goalless draw. Odds for both teams to score are set at 1.55 and over 2.5 goals has odds of 1.72.
AC Milan look determined to qualify for European football next season and have the talent to sink opponents but Roma’s momentum is a foreseeable threat to Montella. Double chance on AC Milan will potentially return a £15 from a tenner – a safer bet for those who wish to back the seven-time Champions League winners.
Bet on Napoli
As mentioned above, Napoli won all their games in the Serie A so far and they’re not showing any signs of slowing down. They now face Cagliari in their quest for the next three points and another loss from the islanders will sink them even lower the Serie A table.
Odds for the Neapolitans to win their seventh consecutive win are priced at 1.12 but for better odds, consider handicap betting on Napoli. Maurizio Sarris’ side netted 22 goals so far and are the highest scoring team of the Serie A. They now average 3.6 goals per game and we expect the next clash to a goal fest too. We don’t can’t see Cagliari getting a goal at the San Paolo and odds for one team to score has odds set at 1.82 – a great price to add to your accumulator.
Handicap betting on Napoli is worth delving into, but for decent odds, you’ll need to back Napoli to win with a goal difference of three or more, which stand at 1.80. A goal difference of four or more will return a very healthy profit, as odds are priced at 2.90.
Bet on Atalanta vs Juve
Atalanta have improved greatly in the past two seasons, qualifying for European football and giving the biggest teams a good run for their money. Juve couldn’t overcome Atalanta away from home and narrowly recorded a victory in Turin.
Juve are almost always the favourites when they’re playing and this clash is no exception. At 1.71, Serie A betting fans would agree that the odds are some of the highest for Juve in the Serie, which proves that Atalanta will give Juve a hard time on Sunday.
If you believe Juve can overcome Atalanta in style, try handicap betting. For this bet to be successful, Juve will need to win with a goal difference of two or more and odds for this bet are priced at 2.95.
