Chievo travel to Bologna for their second encounter of the season. Chievo won the first time around and, despite a bad road record, could emerge winners again with decent odds.In the opening game of the Serie A season, Chievo defeated Bologna in Verona by a 2-0 scoreline. Both goals in the match were scored in the last 35 minutes of the match after a tough battle and one should expect another tight encounter here today.
Chievo are underdogs by bookies with solid odds of 4.05 available at Uwin.com for the outright market. The prime reason for that is due to their rough road record in which they have only produced two wins and seven losses. But, both of those away wins were recently in December against Genoa and Cagliari - teams right beside Bologna in the table. For the double chance bet - Chievo to win or draw, that is being issued at a not-too-shabby 1.75.
Chievo are 6 points ahead of Bologna in the table, residing in 11th spot, and should they figure out a way to score more than their average of 1.0 goal per road match they could pull the upset here today.
The draw result is at 3.30 and Bologna has so far drew 33% of their home matches thus far in the campaign. It's not a bad bet to look at perhaps take a look at the 2.73 for Chievo in the draw no bet offering if you are a little more conservative. So if the match is a draw, you get your initial wager back into your account.
The hosts come in with odds of 2.04 and so far have amassed an even record of 3-3-3 with a +3 goal difference at home. Their last home match before the Christmas break was a 1-2 loss to Parma and are currently on a two game slide.
If you're having difficulty choosing a side for the outright pick then maybe look at something stat wise such as the both teams to score in the match bet. With Chievo averaging that one away goal per game along with Bologna conceding at least one goal in 6 of their 9 home games it could be a value pick at 1.96.
