Now we’re off to Italy to win some money. Your Humble Handicapper can smell cash and when Hellas Verona take on Inter Milan there can only be one winner, thankfully it's your Humble Handicapper and if you listen closely it can be you as well.

After 27 games Inter are 5th in the Italian top flight, on 44 points. However they are hardly in the steadiest of positions as they are just one point ahead of 6th place Parma. And Parma have that all important game in hand to play.

This means that this game is an important one for Inter, but aren’t they all?

Enough with Parma…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?

Speaking of Parma, Verona are just one place behind Parma. They’ve played 27 games themselves so are in a similar one game deficit to Inter, but they are just three points behind Parma. So despite what you may think this is a massive game for Parma.

Calling all Parma fans

You will want to know that the basics have Inter winning at 6/5, Verona winning is at 9/4 and the game ending drawn (which would be the best result for Parma, and her fans) at 9/4.

There have been two meetings between these sides in recent memory and they have both conformed to form.

Inter won on both occasions and won each time by the same two goal margin. You can pick up best soccer odds of the game being decided by two goals at 13/5, and the game being decided by two goals in Inter’s favour at 5/1.

For the record the best soccer odds on the game ending 4-2 this time is at 90/1 and the best soccer odds on the game ending 2-0 is 11/1.

Hellas Verona are looking a bit shaky at present they’ve only got one win in their last five. With two losses and two draws making up their last five games you can see why the bookies fancy Inter for this one.

Inter are undefeated in their last five, but two of those were draws, and one was a scoreless draw. Saying that, that is still a reason to be cheerful as being held (and holding) 0-0 against second place Roma is something worth shouting about.

Inter have scored 44 goals this season and let in 29, while Verona have scored 43 and let in 44. Inter are going to win this one and we will see a decent amount of goals. You can pick up best soccer odds of 9/10 on the game going over 2.5 goals, and your Humble Handicapper suggests that you do just that.

Hellas haven’t found the back of the net in their last two game and while they might score against Inter, you should know that Inter haven’t conceded a goal in their last two games and have only conceded twice (one goal in each) in their last five.

Prediction: Inter win 3-1 available at best soccer odds of 18/1 with Coral.
