BEN RAGG (@RaggysTips) shares his view on the best bets ahead of Monday night's match-up between Juventus and Lazio in Turin.
Juventus vs Lazio | Monday 20th July 2020, 20:45 | Premier Sports
Monday night in Serie A sees reigning champions Juventus host Lazio. This match-up has produced some entertaining affairs in recent times and the poor recent form of both teams suggests this one could go either way.
Lazio have picked up one point from their last four games but can still move to level on points with Inter if they come away with three points from the Allianz Stadium. Meanwhile, Juve have collected just two points from last three, all of which were high-scoring games.
Since the restart, there has 29 goals in Juve’s seven matches. The Old Lady’s problem hasn’t been scoring, it has been conceding. So, the first angle I like is a bet I like for a lot of the games in the Serie A and it’s Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Goals, priced at 21/20 with William Hill.
This bet has won in Juve’s last five, as well as two of Lazio’s last three. The selection has also won in the last three fixtures between the pair.
These two teams met up twice in 15 days in December with both matches being won 3-1 by Lazio. One noticeable thing in the last three match-ups is the amount of shots on-target Lazio have had in comparison to Juve; in total Lazio have managed 23 compared with 11 for Juve.
These stats along with the results they’ve managed recently against Juve will give Lazio a bit of confidence after their poor run of form. So, another bet I like is Lazio to have the Most Attempts On-Target available with Marathon at 38/25. This is another bet that has landed in last three head-to-heads.
Finally, I like the look of Italian goal-machine Ciro Immobile. Immobile is in second place in the race for the European Golden Boot, five goals behind Robert Lewandowski with five games to play. He has managed a staggering 29 goals this season in 31 games and will have his eye on the top prize.
In Juve’s last five matches, six out of eight players starting as central strikers have managed to get on the scoresheet, which makes 21/10 (available with Unibet) an amazing price for the top scorer in Serie A. The next best price is 13/8 with Betway so Unibet look to have offered real value here and I expect to see Immobile capitalise on Juve’s poor defensive form.
