Napoli have been setting a ferocious pace in Serie A this season and are tipped to maintain their 100 per cent record when visiting Roma on Saturday night.

Maurizio Sarri’s side have rattled off seven straight wins in this competition to lead Juventus and Inter by two points, with 25 goals scored in those games.

Having also prevailed in this corresponding fixture last term, we’re on the visitors at 7/5 to keep their hot streak going in our Roma vs Napoli betting predictions.

A Look At Roma’s Betting Odds

We got our fingers burnt taking on Roma when they claimed a 2-0 victory at AC Milan before the international break, with Edin Dzeko bagging his seventh goal of the campaign.

However, the 72nd-minute opener from last season’s Serie A Golden Boot hero did come against the run of play, with goalkeeper Alisson having earlier pulled off a couple of fine saves to keep the scores level.

Roma’s toughest test prior to that scrappy match ended in a 3-1 home defeat to Inter and they were very fortunate to pick up a point versus Atletico Madrid in the Champions League at this venue.

Dzeko is always a threat but 17/2 for a repeat of last season’s 2-1 loss to the Light Blues at Olimpico catches the eye from the Roma vs Napoli odds.

A Look At Napoli’s Betting Odds

Napoli finished last season with five straight victories and have picked up where they left off, with a well-balanced attack running riot.

Even on the road, they have scored at least three goals in all four away wins, with the pick of those triumphs being a 4-1 success at Lazio.

There isn’t much height in this team going forward, but the pace and movement of Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne, Jose Callejon and Marek Hamsik is often a joy to watch.

Italy forward Insigne was a little slow out of the blocks this term but hit top gear with three goals in five games before the international break.

The 26-year-old has opened the scoring in two of his team’s last three Serie A fixtures and gets the nod at 19/4 to net first in our Roma vs Napoli betting tips.
