MARK O’Haire (@MarkOHaire) is hoping for an entertaining encounter when Hellas Verona take on Sampdoria in Monday night’s Serie A showdown.
Hellas Verona v Sampdoria Tips | Monday 20.00 | BT Sport 1
It’s been a hellish few months for Vernoa fans. They’ve won just once in nearly three months in Serie A action and drawn three of a winless spell of seven fixtures.
Although victories are proving hard to come by, goals continue to flow whenever Hellas are in action. Those seven matches all produced winners for Both Teams To Score backers and a repeat is rated at a kind 3/4 with Ladbrokes.
Andrea Mandorlini’s men often trade in high-scoring home games. Since Hellas returned to the top tier in Italy at the start of last season, 18/25 (72%) league outings have featured Over 2.5 Goals at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi with 16/25 (64%) seeing Both Teams Score.
Sampdoria haven’t proved quite as trendy in goals columns when on the road since Siniša Mihajlović took the reigns. Just 7/19 (37%) have featured three goals or more with 8/19 (42%) banking for Both Teams To Score punters.
However, the Blucerchiati have notched in 12/19 (63%) away games under the Serb’s tutelage whilst keeping just 5/19 (26%) clean sheets.
Both Teams To Score looks like the best solution – it’s proved profitable in Sampdoria’s last four in Serie A as well as Verona’s past seven – and looks a decent price at 3/4 with Ladbrokes.
