La Viola head to Milan to take on Inter and though both teams share equal records the absence of key players should give the hosts the upper hand today.
With a 3-1 record to start the campaign Fiorentina was feeling good about this season. Then, Mario Gomez was put on the injury list and the narrowing of eyebrows and grinding of teeth immediately followed.
Sure, La Viola has beaten Genoa, Catania and Atalanta, but those are teams sitting in the bottom seven of the league table. Today, the team faces an Inter Milan squad that has only conceded one goal so far and is coming off a 7-0 massacre of Sassuolo. Add to that, Juan Cuadrado's injury and the suspension of midfielder David Pizzaro and Fiorentina comes in weak today, which is why the team is offered at a larger than normal 4.20.
The draw no bet for the visitors is at 2.62.
Inter's seven goal haul brought the team atop the legue for most goals scored so far and at 1.95 the squad looks nice here to take full points at home. The halftime/fulltime result kicks that up to 3.10.
William Hill has the draw listed at 3.50 right now.
Now, despite losing Gomez, the talisman so far this year for Fiorentina has been Giuseppi Rossi who has four goals so far, second best in the league. He is listed at 3.00 to score at any point in the game which is decent value.
Though I don't expect the visitors to come out on top I wouldn't be shocked to see them score. The both teams to score bet here is listed at 1.61. Combine that with the over 2.5 at 1.70 and you can net $27.30 on a $10 wager.
