Serie A has eight games taking place on Wednesday, with the baby blue crew from Naples trekking to Bergamo to face Atalanta where it could tie Juventus for top spot with a win.Napoli have had one of its best starts in Serie A ever, generating a record of 7-1-1 while conceding only five goals thus far -- good enough for second best in the league.
Hot on the heels of league table topper Juventus, Napoli has also done well on the road thus far with a pair of wins and a draw to show from four games. In those away matches it has only let in two goals, so expect a low one here as well. The under 2.5 should come through, but the value isn't that good so stray from that here.
Although it did lose a pair of games - against Juve in league action, as well as a recent loss to Dnipro in Europa League - Napoli bounced back with a 1-0 result against Chievo this past weekend at home.
A Napoli victory is being issued at 2.08 at Sportsbook.com, while an away/away result in the halftime/fulltime offerings goes up to 3.30.
A draw result can be had for about 3.20, though expect that to change closer towards the 3:45 EDT kickoff.
Atalanta is roaming around the bottom part of the table and is currently 15th with a record of 3-4-2. The struggling club has a pair of wins and losses so far at home and has conceded on home soil for every game with the exception of its opener against struggling Palermo. Its 5-1 defeat to Torino at home really showed its susceptibility on the backline, and for both teams not to score in this game the payout is currently at 1.83.
Atalanta is paying out 3.55 for the win in the outright market.
If you're looking for a correct score market for a higher payout, consider the Napoli 1-0 or 2-0 which pays 6.55 and 9.00, respectively.
