Atalanta v Frosinone
Italian Serie A. Kick-Off: 7.30pm. Live on Eleven Sports 2.
A GOOD first week for anyone following my ramblings on here with 7 out of 8 bets winning. I will attempt to keep the fires burning with some value picks.
Tonight I am avoiding the obvious plays on Liverpool as I have already backed them to win the EPL this season antepost, and I suspect punters will be spoilt for choice when it comes to previews and predictions about their away game to Crystal Palace this evening. Instead I'm looking to Italy for a bit of value.
Atalanta are at home to Frosinone and the bookies have the match odds markets just right – 1/3 is about fair for Atalanata's chances. I think they will make easy work of a newly-promoted Frosinone who have arrived in Serie A on the back of some pretty dismal playoff game.
They lasted one season last time they achieved these dizzy heights and should last one season this time around as well although there are a few contenders for relegation in the mercurial top-level Italian league.
Atalanta themselves are knocking at the door of the top six in Serie A and have a newly-refurbished stadium as well as a decent crack at the Europa League under their belts.
Frosinone are good at losing away games with a 75 per cent run of blanks. Atalanta are looking good so far putting a combined six goals past Hapoel Haifa not to mentioned the eight they slotted past a bewildered FK Sarajevo earlier in the month.
I think Atalanta at -1 in the handicap is insanely good value at evens in their current form.
