MARK O’Haire’s (@MarkOHaire) European NAP takes back to Serie A as he chases a hat-trick of Both Teams To Score winners.
Napoli v AC Milan | Sunday 19.45 | BT Sport 1
Don’t worry, I won’t tell you ‘I told you so’ but Serie A continues to prove itself as the best value destination for goals-based bets in Europe’s top five leagues. So why would I desert it this weekend when there’s another huge value punt on offer?
Napoli remain in the hunt for a top-three finish in the Italian top tier but Rafa Benitez must also shuffle his pack with a Europa League semi-final just days after their Sunday night showdown with fallen giants AC Milan.
Milan’s season is coughing and spluttering over the finish line. Back-to-back defeats including a 3-1 reverse at home to Genoa in midweek has seen the knives out for coach Pipo Inzagji again and it would be a surprise to see him in the dugout for 2015/16.
Nevertheless, the Rossoneri have proven very profitable for those of us who enjoy a decent BTTS wager. Inzaghi’s men have scored in all bar seven of their 33 league outings with 12/16 (75%) away games featuring Both Teams To Score winners.
Napoli aren’t far behind. Despite challenging for a Champions League place, the Partenopei have kept just eight clean sheets in 32 fixtures this term and only four in 16 home matches. The BTTS bet has banked in 11/16 (69%).
Put those two percentage figures together and we should be expecting around a 72% chance of a Both Teams To Score bet repeating on Sunday night. Put that percentage figure into equivalent odds and we’d be talking about a 2/5 shot.
Thanks to 888Sport, we can back it at 4/5. Another huge value Both Teams To Score bet from Serie A.
