One big match in Serie A sees AS Roma host AC Milan on Saturday (2:45pm EST kickoff) and the home side are favoured to come out on top.Roma are currently in 6th place in the Serie A table, only two points ahead of Milan. They have the 2nd best offence in Italy with 38 goals scored in 17 league matches. Most of that has been due to the strong performances of Pablo Osvaldo, Eric Lamela, and Francesco Totti who combined have 22 goals between them.
They do have a winning record at home with a mark of 4-2-2 while averaging just slightly over two goals per game at the Stadio Olimpico. After notching four straight victories they lost away last Sunday to Chievo. Still, Roma is favoured to win here with odds of 2.25 ,while to lead at halftime is sitting at 2.74.
A draw result is slated for 3.60 but with neither team generating more than three draws in each of their 17 games, it is more likely that there will be an outright winner here.
Milan are listed at 2.84 and are keen to continue their slow climb back up the table after one of the poorest starts in club history. They have won four straight which included a 1-0 victory over Juventus and another win in the Coppa Italia 10 days ago.
They will surely look once again to the scorching hot play of Stephan El Shaarawy who leads Serie A with 14 goals so far. The 20 year old has opened the eyes of many clubs across Europe and with Pato and Robinho constantly rumoured to leave the San Siro during the January transfer window, Milan will want to maximize the remaining time the trio have left with each other.
To score at any point in the match the young gun is listed at 2.38. To score last, the odds increase to 6.40.
If you feel that this can be a goalfest than have a look at the 2nd half as the highest scoring half at 1.94 while the over 3.5 is listed at 2.10.
