[Coppa Italia] Napoli HT/FT [-119]
Rather than take the rapidly inflating odds on the handicap for Napoli against Cesena today, I'll go with this result. Stories circulating about Cesena fielding a weakened side today with little intention of winning in this competition as they concentrate on Serie-A survival on the weekend. Even at full strength, this squad would likely struggle against Napoli. Cesena have dropped four of their last five in Serie-A play and sit in one of the relegation spots. This is a pick I will back up for quarter the stakes with Draw HT/Napoli FT @ +325.
[Copa Del Rey] Albacete +1.5/+2 [-119]
Albacete head on the road to battle Athletic Bilbao in the 2nd leg of this tie with the aggregate at 0-0. I don't think the Segunda B side are going to be awstruck having already eliminated Atletico Madrid from this competition. Further, Athletic has a history of playing very tight matches in the Copa Del Rey. Their last five matches have all been decided by a single goal or resulted in a draw. They will need to be careful obviously not to concede as the away goal could loom huge in this one. Llorente will be in the start XI it appears, so that will give Athletic a better offensive attack then the one they showed in the opening leg. Still, with a spot in the QFs on the line and very little wiggle room ... if Albacete falls, I don't think it will be a heavy defeat.
