[  ]

Serie A

Match week 8


Bet: Total Goals under 3

According to sports betting predictions this year Napoli will be again chasing Juventus in the race for the Scudetto. After the first 7 rounds of Italian Serie A Partenopei sit on the second position with 14 points (4 points behind Juve). It should be mentioned that just before the international hiatus Sarri’s side was expected to runaway with a victory in Bergamo, but they unexpectedly suffered a defeat in the hands of the local Atalanta. So Napoli’s chances to win the national championship are quite weak, but the betting experts consider them to be the favorite of the Champions League group where they have already got 2 wins out of 2.

Roma will arrive in Naples looking to leapfrog above the local team in Serie A standings. As it was predicted by sports betting experts the Roman Wolves started the season with a victory. Moreover, they demonstrated an impressive attacking performance. But then Spalletti’s side has shown its traditional inconsistency having drawn with Cagliari (2-2) and having lost to Fiorentina (0-1) and Torino (1-3). So with such a dynamics Giallorossi are unlikely to challenge Juventus for the Scudetto. Nevertheless, the betting companies expect them to compete for the Champions League zone and to overcome easily the Europa League group stage.

Napoli – Roma clash is definitely the highlight fixture of the Serie A weekend without shadow of a doubt. While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Partenopei are approaching this game without their new forward Milik. The Polish international has enjoyed the start to Napoli’s campaign, playing an integral role upfront with 4 goals. Unfortunately for the home team, during an international break he suffered a serious injury and is expected to miss 6 months, that is why the betting experts think Gabbiadini will become Sarri’s first choice. Spalletti doesn’t have selection concerns, but his team have troubles playing away. In the 3 previous matches the Roman Wolves got only 1 point out of 9. At the same time Napoli is extremely dangerous at home – 9 wins in the last 9 games.

The bookmakers consider Partenopei to be an overdog: Napoli – 2,00, Draw – 3,60, Roma – 3,70. Given the fact that Sarri’s side is impressive on its field and Spalletti’s team show a poor performance in away games, you can bet on “Napoli (Draw – no bet)” (1,46). As the Neapolitans haven’t conceded in 4 home matches against the Roman Wolves the bet “Home team to win without conceding a goal” (3,90) is definitely worth your attention. Besides, “Total Goals under 3” (1,70) seems to get through like in their last 4 encounters in Naples.
