Serie A

Match week 9

22.10.2016

Bet: Total Goals under 2,75

According to the long-range forecasts of the sports betting companies, AC Milan will fight for the top-4 in Serie A this season. After the first 8 matches the Red and Blacks meet the expectations and sit on the third place with 16 points (5 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses). Though they don’t always show a top-level performance, they demonstrate a strong character and manage to grab points, which is important for betting. Given the fact that Montella’s side is not involved in European campaign, they have a good chance of success in a contest for Champion League zone.

The White and Blacks got 7 victories and suffered only one defeat (1-2) at the hands of another Milanese team Inter. Besides, Allegri’s side is playing on the Champions League group stage. Confirming betting predictions in midweek they got a hard-fought away win over Lyon (1-0).

While choosing a bet you have to take into account the fact that in case of a victory Milan will find themselves at an arm’s length from Juventus. However, Rossoneri have some selection concerns as they have to play without Montolivo, Antonelli, Calabria, Fernandez, Honda and Bertolacci. What is more, the Old Lady has won 33 of their last 36 Serie A fixtures. But this game will be anything, but a walk for the current leader because Rugani, Chiellini, Mandzukic and Pjaca are all ruled out. It should be mentioned that Juventus have beaten their rivals in the last five head-to-head matches and the betting experts think they will extend this series.

The bookmakers give the preference to the away team: Milan – 4,50, Draw – 3,55, Juventus – 1,83. It is important to highlight that Milan is unbeaten in 5 matches (4 wins and 1 draw) and Juventus have 6 victories in a row. So this game promises to be interesting and intense. As only 2 out of 6 last matches have seen more than 2 goals, you can bet either on “Total Goals under 2,5” (1,90) or “Total Goals under 2,75” (1,70). It is also worth backing a draw. Apart from that, if you believe in an away team, you can try to bet on “Juventus to win by a single goal” (3,50).
