The next place that your Humble Handicapper is looking for cash is Italy and their Serie A. Top of the table Juventus take on 18th place Livorno.
<p style="text-align:center"><span></span></p> <p style="text-align:left"><span style="font-size:1em">Just to give you a very brief idea of what sort of gulf exists between these two sides your Humble Handicapper can tell you that Juventus are at best soccer odds of 1/100 to win Serie this term (the next best bet is Roma at 25/1, then Napoli at 80/1) and Livorno are ½ (third favourite to be relegated this term).</span></p> <p style="text-align:left"><span style="font-size:1em"> </span><b style="font-size:1em"><br />Enough with the long term odds…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?<br /></b><span style="font-size:1em">After 30 games Juventus have won 26, drawn three and lost just the one. Livorno by comparison have won 6 drawn 6 and lost 18. Livorno are just two points behind 17</span><sup>th</sup><span style="font-size:1em"> place Bologna, and have a game in hand but they really could do with an easier opponent than Juventus.</span></p> <p>In their 30 league games Juventus have scored 67 goals, that’s more than two per game on average and let in just 20 (that’s about two goals every three games).</p> <p>Livorno have only managed 29 goals (less than one per game) and have conceded 56, almost two per game.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a target="_blank" title="Stop and take a look at Serie A Betting Futures" href="/soccer/free-picks/soccer-picks-serie-betting-futures-a-38124/"><em>Stop and take a look at Serie A Betting Futures</em></a></p> <p><b style="font-size:1em">What does that mean?<br /></b><span style="font-size:1em">All those numbers crunched shows you why the bookies have the basics for this game at 1/7 for a Juventus win, 13/2 for a draw and 16/1 for a Livorno win.</span></p> <p>You might like to throw some cash down on a Livorno victory, as sometimes these things happen, but as the bookies have Juventus winning both halves at 4/9, I wouldn’t advise it.</p> <p>Before their <a target="_blank" title="Take a look at our preview for this game" href="/soccer/free-picks/serie-betting-napoli-vs-juventus-a-38498/">2-0 away defeat to Napoli</a>, Juventus were on a four game winning run and had outscored their opponents 4-2, not the most inspiring or results and they had only won each of those games by a single goal margin, but as they had only conceded one goal in that run, that’s all they’ve needed to do.</p> <p>You can get best soccer odds of Juventus winning to nil at 3/5, and just of the record you can get Livorno winning to nil at 60/1. That should tell you who will come out on top…</p> <p>An insanely safe bet is Juventus to score first at 1/9, but that offers up scant returns. You might be tempted by “no goals” at 20/1. But I see Juventus winning this one and they can’t do that without scoring. Also Livorno have shipped 11 goals in their last five games and haven’t kept a clean sheet since I don’t know when.</p> <p>The last time these sides met Juventus came out 2-0 winners (a score they have enjoyed twice out of the three most recent meetings) but <a target="_blank" title="Read up on the rest of our free soccer picks for every game" href="/soccer/">I feel there will be a mini whitewash here</a>.</p> <p><b style="font-size:1em">Prediction:</b><span style="font-size:1em"> Juventus win 3-0 available at best soccer odds of 11/2 with sportingbet.</span></p> [/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":262861, "sportsbooksIds":[43], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]
