Betting Tips for Today: Oppose goals in Italy as SPAL host Atalanta

Monday's Serie A clash is unlikely to produce too much goalmouth action and there appears plenty of value in backing at least one side to draw a blank

Many punters will be waiting with baited breath for the first round of Champions League fixtures to get underway this week.

There is some value to found in one of Monday's domestic clashes though.

SPAL have made a very solid start to the new Serie A season, picking up two victories from their opening three matches. Despite that, 888Sport make them 10/3 (4.33) underdogs to extend their tally to nine points on home soil.

Atalanta are 17/20 (1.85) to come out on top at Stadio Paolo Mazza although Gian Piero Gasperini's men look tough to trust at that price based on their early season showings.

A draw is available at 47/20 (3.35) with 888Sport and that's been the outcome on each of the last two head-to-head meetings between the sides.

This game certainly looks set to be a tense affair. SPAL kept clean sheets in their opening two league matches of the season - winning both 1-0 - before going down to Torino by the same score line before the international break.

Atalanta have had their struggles in the final third too. While they shared an incredible 3-3 draw with Roma, the visitors have drawn a blank in three of their last four matches in all competitions including back-to-back 0-0 stalemates against FC Copenhagen in the Europa League qualifiers.

A 1-0 reverse at the hands of Cagliari last time out doesn't inspire much confidence in their attacking options either so taking the 9/10 (1.90) about "No" in the Both Teams to Score market looks a great option for punters.

SPAL narrowly avoided relegation last season but have shown much more defensive steel this term so far. With Atalanta faltering in front of goal backing at least one side to keep a clean sheet is Monday's best bet at 9/10 (1.90) with 888Sport.
