It looks like it’s gonna be tight. But that doesn't mean you should be a scared-y cat when it comes to betting on the outcome -in fact, just the opposite. The clever bettor knows that games where the sides are even is all the more opportunity to make some sports betting cash. 

Enough with the hyperbole… WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?

Mrs Richardson is well-happy at present because of the size of her shoe fund; but apparently, women really can never, NEVER have enough shoes, even though they have just as many feet as the rest of us.

Normally, when two sides look like they going to cancel each other out, you should back the home side. But when these two sides meet -at least in three of the last four games- the winners have been the away side. In three of the four games when we’ve seen winners (out of the last five meetings) the winners have been Juventus. So maybe look to win bigger by backing the visitors in your soccer picks.

If you're unsure about whom to back, you're not alone. Juventus are 11/10 to take all three points in the soccer betting odds, while a draw is at 11/5 and Inter winning is at 5/2. But the shortest correct score odds are on a draw, and a 1-1 draw at that (at 5/1).

Also, Back Goals.

The last five meetings between these sides have seen 14 goals and just one clean sheet. If you like to pick your winner depending on the correct score odds, you should; know that Juventus have the next three most likely results according to the bookies. 1-0 at 8/1, 2-1 at 7/1 and 2-0 at 11/1.

Correct Score Odds: What Do They Know?

The first correct score that the bookies like for Inter is 1-0 at 12/1. This all points towards a Juventus win.

Enough with the science...I’m feeling saucy!

Juventus have scored 4 goals in their last two home games, but just one in each of their last two away games, while Inter have kept two cleans sheets in their last two home games. That suggests a home win… or at the very least a small Juventus win. But my crystal ball tells me there will be more goals.

Your Humble Handicapper is going out on a limb and is backing Juventus twice for my betting picks in this match.
