Shall we make a bet?
Not even time to comment on the Italian teams in Europe, because from today, we’re back on the field for the league…
Friday, 6:30 PM: Empoli-Udinese
Two teams struggling at the bottom of the table: in such cases, fear should prevail, so “X”. But I didn’t mind Empoli under Andreazzoli against Inter or Bologna (teams of a higher caliber), so I’ll risk “1”, which Snai offers at 3.15.
Friday, 8:45 PM: Lecce-Sassuolo
The Salentines have done much more than expected so far; the Emilians, somewhat less. Time is a gentleman, so it will likely set things right, perhaps starting tonight: “2” (at 2.70).
Saturday, 3 PM: Inter-Bologna
Inter is my favorite in the race for the Scudetto, but this time they’ll face a tough obstacle, that Bologna team that can legitimately aspire to a “European” spot at the end of the season. Devastating Nerazzurri in attack, well-organized Rossoblù from midfield down: it’s a big risk, I realize, but I’m betting on “X” at 5!
Saturday, 6 PM: Juventus-Torino
The Derby is always a different story and often favors the less-favored team. Milik isn’t Vlahovic, but for me, the Old Lady wins: “1” (at 1.87).
Saturday, 8:45 PM: Genoa-Milan
Of course, Milan is the favorite, but Genoa has already shown that they do well on the counterattack (remember Napoli?). So, as far as I’m concerned, “X” (at 3.50).
Sunday, 12:30 PM: Monza-Salernitana
Palladino has found “his” team again, Paulo Sousa hasn’t yet, or maybe Salernitana – despite what their ambitious president says – is just that… The “1” (at 1.70) looks good to me.
Sunday, 3 PM: Frosinone-Verona
Both teams seem to have injury problems. If the Verona that conquered San Siro were “real,” it would be a different story, but “that” Verona is more like Bagnoli’s team: a sweet memory… “1” (at 2.40).
Sunday, 3 PM: Lazio-Atalanta
When the European adrenaline subsides, anything can happen. Even that the Nerazzurri remember they are a title-contending team and conquer the Olimpico… “2” (at 2.65).
Sunday, 6 PM: Cagliari-Roma
Two coaches I respect, Ranieri and Mourinho, a game that neither can afford to lose. So, if you don’t mind, I’ll go with “X” (at 3.45).
Sunday, 9:45 PM: Napoli-Fiorentina
The dual front of league and European competitions can be quite exhausting. At this moment, Napoli seems better equipped to handle the stress, so “1” (at 1.60).
The final choice
The invitation to bet on individual matches remains valid, but if you’re fond of the martingale, here’s a possible play: Empoli-Udinese 1, Juventus-Torino 1, and Monza-Salernitana 1. If you bet the usual 10 euros, Snai might return you 100.10…
