Looking at the table over in Italy it’s all about Juventus, they are eight points clear at the top of the Serie A table with just six games left. The bookies have Juventus winning the league at 1/100 whereas neither Hellas or Fiorentina aren’t even considered. That’s because Fiorentina are 4th in the table, but a full 29 points behind Juve and Verona are even worse off down in 9th on 46 points (38 points off the top).
with Juventus…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?
If the table tells us anything it tells us that Fiorentina will come out on top and the bookies have the basics as follows; Fiorentina are 5/4 to win this game outright, Verona are at best soccer odds of 9/4 and the draw is at 11/5.
The half time / full time odds also point in Fiorentina’s direction, with Fiorentina/Fiorentina at the bookies’ preferred result at 3/1, then a draw across both halves at 4/1 and then Verona/ Verona at 9/2.
When the half time/full time odds look like that it usually means that one team (or one result) will rule the game.
So if you want to sound off like you’ve got a pair, back the draw.
don’t usually do this, but…
I'm backing a draw. The bookies have the shortest correct score odds on 1-1 at 5/1 and even when they have a clear winner at correct score odds, it’s only by a single goal margin.
In fact if you want to ignore your Humble Handicapper’s top soccer tips and go for a clear winner, don’t back the game being too one sided.
In fact if you must back a winner go for one side winning by a one goal margin. You can pick up the game being decided by a single goal at 9/1 but when you see that the odds leap up to 13/5 on the game being decided by two goals, you see the sense of your Humble Handicapper’s words.
The bookies also like Fiorentina winning by a goal at 31/10 whereas they have Verona winning by one at 7/2.
Crunching all those number together your Humble Handicapper is also confident in recommending that you back the game going Under 2.5 goals at 5/6 for your soccer picks. And you might like backing both sides to score at 8/11 while Verona winning to nil is at 5/1 and Fiorentina winning with a clean sheet is at 7/2.
