Sports Betting. Chievo vs Milan [16.10.16] : the donkeys are flying high

Serie A

Match week 8

16.10.2016

Bet: Total Goals Under 2,5

All sports betting expert admit that Chievo have enormously improved since last season. Rolando Maran’s side has made a perfect start to this year’s campaign – after the 7 match weeks they sit behind Juventus and Napoli. Contrary to betting predictions the Flying donkeys managed to get 13 points together with Roma, Lazio and Milan. The Veronese team is keeping on breaking the mould. Although they lost to Fiorentina (0-1) and Napoli (0-2) on the road, they are tremendously dangerous at home as they beat Sassuolo (2-1) and Inter (2-0).

Milan has also improved under the direction of Vincenzo Montella, but their results and performances  are still far from sustainable. As it was conjectured by sports betting experts this season the Rossonerri are going to fight for the Serie A top-5, but they are unlikely to challenge Juventus or Napoli. At this moment Montella’s side has 13 points, but is on the 6th place because of the goal difference. It should be mentioned that the Red and Black lost only twice, but if the first defeat was suffered in Naples (2-4), the second one came quite unexpectedly – against Udinese (0-1).

While choosing a bet you have to take into account the fact that Vincenzo Montella’s men are plagued by injuries. If the absence of Andrea Bertolacci, Luca Antonelli and Mati Fernandez is not considered to be a major loss, seriously injured Riccardo Montolivo will be a huge miss. In this case Milan’s head coach is expected to give a chance either to a 18-year-old Manuel Locatelli or to Ernesto Sosa. At the same time Rolando Moran has a full squad available and his men are ready to give battle to their rival. The sports betting companies also pay your attention to the head-to-head stats. The Veronese team have three 0-0 draws in a row with Milan at home.

No wonder that the bookmakers don’t single out a clear favorite: Chievo – 2,85, Draw – 2,90, Milan – 2,80. Both teams are able to grab three points, but Chievo is in a bit more favorable position as they play at home where they are still unbeaten so far this season. Moreover, Milan has some injury related problems. So you can try to bet on “Chievo (Draw – no bet)” (1,92). Besides, following betting tips and head-to-head stats you can choose “Total Goals under 2,5” (1,65). Also the option “Both teams to Score – No” (1,83) looks quite good.
