The lone game in Serie A on Friday is the biggest of the season so far, with the top two clubs going at it when Napoli heads to Stadio Olimpico to take on a dynamite Roma squad.
Not a single bettor out there would have wagered a dime on Roma going undefeated after the first seven matchdays this Serie A season. But i Giallorossi have done just that while doing it in fine sashion with 20 goals for and an even more stunning one goal against.
They went to Milan last week and destroyed Inter by a 3-0 score and have won every game by at least two goals. It is very hard to go against a team that has played like European champions, and with odds of 2.15 available this will be of decent value. The 3.75 offered for the win with both teams scoring in the match is of even better value.
But things can get wild in the Derby del Sole as the two clubs have traded wins last season with the home side emerging victorious in both.
The draw result is at 3.50, but there have only been two ties from their last nine encounters against each other.
Napoli also comes into the match undefeated, with its only blemish being a shock 1-1 draw at home against basement dwellers Sassuolo last month. Despite losing the leagues's top scorer, Edinson Cavani, to PSG in the off season, Napoli hasn't lost a step from its form last year as Gonzalo Higuain is filling in just fine.
Napoli's goal difference is +14 after seven games and it has won all three on the road so far, so at 3.25 it is going to be very hard to ignore this pick -- but I will still stick with the home side today given its sheer dominance thus far.
Expect both teams to score and the over 2.5 total goals to crack, but at odds of only 1.57 and 1.65 consider combining them together for a payout of just under $52 of a $20 bet at William Hill.
Despite having four goals from six games and leading the team in scoring, Alessandro Florenzi still comes in at 3.00 to score at any given time in the match. Not bad value for a player on a hot streak at home against a rival club.
