The most anticipated match on today's docket in Serie A features a visiting Napoli squad as it heads to Florence to take on a rising Fiorentina side that has won three straight.
Fiorentina has a tough schedule this week as it faces Napoli today and then AC Milan on the weekend. But the team is opening many eyes in Serie A with its strong start to the campaign, with only one loss so far from its opening nine league matches.
Fiorentina is 2-0-2 (W-L-T) so far at home, including a big 4-2 victory over Juventus two weeks ago. La Viola defeated Chievo on the road three days ago, and as a result the hosts come into the match as slight favourites with odds of 2.62 being offered by William Hill for the outright win in the 1x2 market.
The draw offering is presently at 3.20, which I like out of the 1x2 picks. In addition to Fiorentina's two draws at home and strong overall play, Napoli will provide more than a good challenge as the visitors currently sit in second place in the league table. They have averaged two goals per away contest as well.
The both teams to score pick along with a draw raises that to 4.00, and with both teams curently in the top four clubs in goals scored it does offer good value.
The Napoli outright win is at 2.70.
Take the over 2.5 total goals at 1.91. La Viola matches at home have cracked this three of four times this year, and with Napoli's proven ability to score on the road this is a good pick for today. The reason it is even is because of Napoli's defence which has conceded just six goals all year, but five of those have come on the road, just slightly over one per match.
If you are looking for a correct scorer pick, it's hard to not at least consider taking Giuseppe Rossi to score today. He leads Serie A with eight strikes so far, and is offering 2.20 to hit today.
