Roma v Chievo Preview, Serie A, Thursday October 31st 2013

Roma have started their new season like an express train, winning all nine of their opening games and if that wasn’t impressive enough they have done it having scored 23 times and conceded just 1 and no doubt every punter around the country will no doubt have the hosts down as one of their bankers in their betting accumalators on thursday night.

Chievo have had quite the opposite start to their new campaign, Giuseppe Sannino’s side have managed just 1 win and 1 draw from their opening nine games and have lost the remaining seven and as a result of their poor performances they currenty sit bottom of the Serie A League table.

Roma have a clear and commanding advantage on the recent form stats having won all of their previous 5 matches played. Chievo have struggled considerably having lost all of their last 5 played.

Roma v Chievo Match Betting Odds Market.

Roma will be looking to continue their excellent start to the season and having won all of their nine matches played in the league so far it should come as no real surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up as the clear odds on favourites to win this game at best odds of 2/7 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw has happened nine times in the previous twenty-two meetings between the two clubs and does seem to be the best result that Chievo could possibly obtain from this game and having beaten Roma twice last season getting on the draw at a current best price of 5/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) might turn out to be a sensible cover bet.

Chievo have not showed any signs of being able to win a game so far this season, but the players might have their confidence boosted by the fact that they did beat their opponents both home and away last season. However at a current best price of 12/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) it really would come as a huge shock to see them win this game.

Roma v Chievo Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Roma will be without two of their best players for this game, with Gervinho and Totti both still a week or two away from returning back to the squad with respective injuries, but it does seem that manager Rudi Garcia has plenty of world class individuals in his squad to fill in and with home advantage this should be business as normal for the current Serie A leaders.

However, the current odds on a home win here offer little in the way of value and the more sensible bet could be the goals markets as with the previous five matches having all seen no more than two goals scored the Under 2.5 Goals looks an attractive proposition here.
