Football betting fans looking for a sure thing could be tempted to turn their attention to the Coppa Italia this week.
Inter Milan welcome Roma to the San Siro for the second leg of their semi final and the home form of the Nerazzuri this season has been so impressive, the visitors are seen as rank outsiders.
Leonardo’s charges have won the last 12 ties on home soil and with a 1-0 advantage following the first leg at the Stadio Olimpico, they will fancy their chances of progressing to the final.
As such, the hosts are odds-on favourites to win on the night, with bwin pricing a home success at 17/20, while Roma can be backed at 13/5.
Those expecting Inter to sit back and hold on to their advantage can bet on the draw at 12/5, where a £10 stake would see a return of £34.
Roma’s form of late has seen them slide down the Serie A table and out of the Champions League qualification places and their recent run against Inter will not inspire much confidence.
The last five ties between the two clubs have seen Inter emerge victorious on no less than four occasions. The aggregate score over those matches is 10-4 to Inter, with one of the games a thrilling 5-3 win for the hosts.
Therefore, football betting enthusiasts can expect plenty of goals. Anyone expecting a repeat of the 5-3 scoreline can bet on bwin’s ‘any other score’ market at 37/2.
However, the sensible punters out there could look at the law of averages and back Inter to score two goals during the game.
A 2-0 result is priced at 35/4, while those thinking Roma will add to the ten away goals they have scored in their last five ties on the road can back a 2-1 win for Leonardo’s men at 8/1.
A £10 bet on the latter outcome would return £90. New customers can register here to receive a £25 free bet.
