Weekend Football Betting Tips

  • Frosinone vs Inter Milan - Double Chance (Inter/Draw) & Over 2.5 Goals @ 9/10
  • Napoli vs Bologna - Bologna+1 @ 8/11
  • Hellas Verona vs Torino - Double Chance (Torino/Draw) & Under 3.5 Goals via #PickYourPunt @ 4/6

It turns out Inter’s biggest challengers this season were not AC Milan nor Juventus but Sassuolo.

Last weekend, the champions were defeated for the second time this season by the team currently second from bottom.

A shock result, mostly due to Simone Inzaghi’s men lack of effort, that has changed the landscape at the bottom of the table, leaving Frosinone and Verona in need of points.

Frosinone vs Inter (Friday, time: 19:45)

The Nerazzuri open matchday 36 by visiting another side fighting to achieve salvation. Inter were heavily criticised for their lacklustre performance in Reggio Emilia last Saturday, but, as a partial excuse, they’ve probably had more Scudetto parties in the last two weeks than training sessions.

The hosts are hoping to extend their unbeaten run to seven games by picking up the first ever points in their history against the Milanese side.

Newly promoted Frosinone have kept three consecutive clean sheets, as many as in their previous 32 games, and have built their hopes of salvation thanks to a strong home form.

In fact 78% of their league points have come at the ‘Benito Stirpe’, only Granada (81% of total points obtained at home) holds a better domestic record in Europe’s top five leagues.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s men have drawn six of their last nine games and have only failed to score three times at home.

Inter can’t afford to draw another blank and should produce a performance worthy of the league winners.

Frosinone have only kept three home clean sheets this season and a double chance (Inter or Draw) and Over 2.5 Goals pays 9/10.

Napoli vs Bologna (Saturday, time: 17:00)

The visitors only need five more points to secure qualification to next season’s Champions League.

Napoli probably can’t wait for this turbulent campaign to come to an end as, after Monday’s 1-1 draw, the home side are five points away from Lazio in seventh place.

Last Monday, the Neapolitans added another piece to their seasonal collection of horrors by conceding a stoppage time goal to Udinese, the first one scored this season by Isaac Success.

Last year’s champions have only won one of their last nine games in all competitions and haven’t kept a clean sheet in 16 games.

With only 24 points on the table, and 24 goals scored, Napoli’s home record is worse than newly promoted Cagliari and Frosinone.

The hosts have won eight of the last nine domestic games against Bologna, but the visitors, despite only one win in the last five games, seem much more in-form.

Thiago Motta’s men don’t score many on the road (only 19 so far), but have been defeated once in (2-1 against Fiorentina) in the eight away games they played against top table oppositions.

The odds for the Handicap +1 for the visitors (8/11) seem extremely generous, considering they’ve lost just one of their last 15 Serie A fixtures.

Verona vs Torino (Sunday, time: 14:00)

Thanks to last Sunday’s 2-1 victory, Marco Baroni’s Verona are almost home and dry.

Achieving salvation with a game to spare would be an amazing result for a club that sold its best assets in January and brought in a lot of young players.

The likes of Noslin and Serdar have adapted quickly to Italy’s top flight and in the last nine games Verona collected 14 points; only five teams (Inter, AC Milan, Bologna, Roma and Lazio) have done better than the Scaligeri.

The hosts have won two of the last three games played at the ‘Marcantonio Bentegodi’, as many as they did in the previous 12 domestic matches.

But Torino would be harder to beat than Udinese and Fiorentina, in fact the Granata have only lost two of the previous nine games.

Once again last Friday, against Bologna, Ivan Juric’s men created very few scoring chances and collected their ninth scoreless draw of the season, a negative record in Europe’s top five leagues.

On the other hand, Torino are always very hard to break: they’ve got Italy’s fourth-best defence and have kept 18 clean sheets, only two less than Inter.

The visitors haven’t conceded in the first half in 30 out of 35 games this season and should be able to keep it tight and avoid defeat. Torino or Draw and Under 3.5 Goals pays 4/6 via #PickYourPunt.
