Undefeated at home this season, AS Roma looks to close the gap on Juventus to six points with a win over Inter Milan, and is heavy favourite in the lines. Kickoff is 2:45 pm EST.
AS Roma is one of only two teams in Italy that is undefeated at home this season and will look to repeat the 3-0 win notched against Inter Milan back in October Saturday afternoon.
Roma is unbeaten in its last eight matches against Inter including three straight victories in all competitions. The home side is favoured with odds of 1.70 in the outright sector while the double result takes that to 2.50.
Its defence at home has been outstanding to say the least as seen by the concession of only two goals at the Stadio Olimpico. This is not to say offense has been shabby either as the team has penetrated the back of its opponents net 30 times in 12 matches on home turf.
Overall, the team has lost once all season from 24 games and a win over Inter would help the team stay in the race for the Scudetto.
A draw is available at 3.20 over at William Hill while the visitors are being offered at a chunky 6.00 to deliver Roma's first defeat on home soil.
After delivering a shock 2-1 away win over Fiorentina two weeks ago the team followed that up with a sad 1-1 draw at home against 15th place Cagliari last weekend.
Consider hedging how many goals Roma will score in the game. The team is offered at 3.20 to notch two while it is listed at 5.50 to score three goals.
The team has scored three in two straight home games against Sampdoria and Napoli. The side has also scored three or more against Inter in four of its last six against them.
