Bet of the day: Torino double chance for draw or win v Napoli
Holly Thackeray | May 8, 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Napoli have lost all of their last three away fixtures
- Just one win on the road for the Little Donkeys in past seven
- Torino fresh from defeating Udinese 5-1
- Olimpico di Torino tough spot for Napoli after three losses there in previous five
Torino win or draw a tasty 2/1 double chance
It’s all going down to the wire for second spot, and automatic qualification for the Champions League, in Serie A. Roma are currently chasing Napoli’s tail by two points with as many matches to go, which makes Italy our destination for the latest bet of the day.
Maurizio Sarri’s southern side travel all the way north to Turin for their next tricky tussle, where Torino are a terrific 2/1 to register a win or draw against Napoli in a decadent double chance with Coral.
Why does this wager tempt? Read on to find out why The Bull are worth backing to bully Sarri’s Little Donkeys into a draw or defeat…
Neapolitan woes on the road
Campania club Napoli have seen severe cases of home sickness envelope their away outings of late, with all their seven Serie A losses occurring when on duty away from Naples this season.
At the Stadio San Paolo the Little Donkeys have been a totally different team, but on the road their inconsistent form without passionate local backing is what saw the Scudetto slip from grasp. After just one away day victory in their previous seven, the Neapolitans could now also miss out on that coveted second spot.
Coach Sarri has also overseen three away day defeats in Napoli’s last three attempts to pick up points away from home, leaving the door tantalisingly ajar for Torino to cause trouble.
Often prickly opponents at the Olimpico di Torino, The Bull are themselves fresh from charging to a 5-1 thrashing of Udinese on the Little Zebras’ home patch, and will have every reason to be confident upon their triumphant return to Turin.
Torino have managed to sink Napoli on three of their last five trips to Piedmont, and have lost only two of their past eight while hosting the southerners, with three of those eight ending evenly.
So, men in maroon look brilliant value at 2/1 to hold Sarri’s stuttering side and take a win or a draw from their wrangle.
