More footballing joy from over in Italy, when Chevio host Juventus on Sunday and in a match like this taking money from the bookmakers is just a click away.

Serie A Football Tips: Chievo vs. Juventus

Much as Mrs Richardson likes Italy, their food their cloth and especially their shoes I usually need an excuse to spend a Sunday afternoon watching an Italian match but Chevio  versus Juventus is the perfect excuse me do just that, and if it looks like the shoe fund will swell, so I’ll probably be able to rely on the wife fetching me some Italian beers for at least 90 minutes.

Enough with listing the marital duties…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?

People often say to me, “Mike what’s the best sort of game to back the outsider in?” and I tell them this is exactly the sort of game to back the outsider in. Everything points the match between Juventus and Chevio being a really close encounter as not one,  not two, not three, but four of the last five meetings between these two sides have ended drawn. We've seen 1-1 twice 2-2 once and 0- 0 once.

What role do Lazio play?

It's one of the use little oddities that the gods of football occasionally throw us, that both sides in their last match played against Lazio. If you want to use that as a decent barometer as to what will happen in this game you should know that Chevio went to Lazio and won 1-0, while Juventus went down 2-1. This is a good steer if you want the pickup on those Italian football betting tips Chevio winning 1-0 is available at 12/1 while Chevio winning 2-1 is available at 18/1.

Big money from Italian football picks.

Juventus may be at the top of the Serie A table after 22 games but only have three points breathing space over Napoli, so don't expect them to go easy on Chevio. Their home record is impressive with seven wins two draws and one defeat scoring 21 goals and conceding just seven. That looks all the more likely to point towards an away win (at 8/13). Plus Chevio have just five victories from 11 games at home scoring 13 goals and leading in 10, that’s why a home win is at 9/2.

Best Italian football predictions.

Somebody will say that because Juventus won the last meeting 2-0 between these two sides, and 2-0 is at just 6/1. You should also know if that the time before that and Juventus beat Chevio was a 1-0 victory way back in 2009, that score is offered up at 5/1, the shortest correct score soccer betting odds.

BUT…

I just have a feeling, for this match and if you throw your money behind mine (and my wife’s) you can make a tidy profit from on your sport picks. I think this game is very tight and extremely close.

Despite the away side’s league position, in their last three games in all competitions they have two draws and a defeat plus Juventus haven't kept a clean sheet since 19 January. The decent bit of momentum is with Chevio after the two games undefeated in all competitions they also have kept two clean sheets in their last four games and seemed to get a huge wake-up call when they let in four against Bologna, on 12 January. I think Juventus will be frustrated on Sunday and Mrs Richardson will happily bring in the beers as the shoe fund grows.
