After an eventful weekend in Italy’s top-flight, mid-week action returns with some exciting matchups. We’re set for a thriller when Napoli host Atalanta, while Cagliari and Bologna look set to share the spoils. Can Parma overcome Verona? Let’s check out the best bets for Round 10.
Parma vs. Hellas Verona - 10/29/19
Parma head into this match as favorites after winning three of their last five league games. An impressive draw with Inter in the previous round will have filled the team with confidence. On the other hand, Verona have lost their last two matches. As well as being the league’s second-lowest scorers, Verona also have the joint-best defensive record in the division. A Parma win is at 2.20, but considering Verona’s lack of goals at both ends of the pitch, this match is likely to be a low-scoring encounter.
Pick: Parma to Win and Under 3.5 Goals – 2.71
Napoli vs. Atalanta – 10/30/19
Atalanta became the highest scoring team in Serie A this season with a 7-1 thrashing over Udinese at the weekend. This took Atalanta’s tally to 28 for the season, so they are now averaging just over three goals per game. Napoli have also not been shy in front of goal, netting 18 times this season. However, both team’s defenses are a cause for concern. Atalanta and Napoli have both been good going forward, but both teams have leaked goals at the back. For that reason, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals makes sense here.
Pick: Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals – 1.68
Cagliari vs. Bologna - 10/30/19
Cagliari and Bologna have been pretty evenly matched so far this season. Cagliari find themselves in 7th place with 15 points, while Bologna sit in 10th with 12 points to their name. Both teams have been fairly solid defensively, but neither side has been able to find the back of the net on a consistent basis. Bologna have scored 12 and conceded 12, while Cagliari have scored 13 and conceded 8. All the signs are pointing towards a draw in this match, and the odds are seriously tasty.
Pick: The Draw – 3.25
