The teams under scrutiny in today’s Torino vs Udinese preview are locked side by side in the current Serie A table having collected thirty-two points each this season so far. However, they have amassed their points total in markedly different fashion. The home side have lost just four times in the league in 2017/18, while the away team, who sit above them, have already been beaten on ten separate occasions.
Torino have been one of the more difficult teams to beat on their own patch in Serie A this term. Ahead of Torino vs Udinese betting tips, they have played eleven league fixtures at the Stadio Olimpico Grande, losing just twice. Overall, Il Toro are looking in fine fettle – they have lost just once in seven games and though that defeat cam in the Turin derby against Juventus, the result was far from unexpected.
Udinese have only won one of their last four matches, though the optimists will be quick to point out that they have been beaten only once in their last six. Still, the Zebrette’s victory at Genoa last weekend was a timely one and brought to an end a three-game winless run for Coach Massimo Oddo. Qualifying for the Europa League is not out of the question for either club analysed for our Italian football bets for today, which adds another layer of intrigue to next week’s fixture between them.
With Il Toro still treading water in mid-table, it’s remarkable that they have been beaten just twice at home all season. Only high flying Napoli and Roma have left the Stadio Olimpico Grande with maximum points in 2017/18. The first of today’s Torino vs Udinese bets leaned heavily on that admirable home record for inspiration.
Head Coach Walter Mazzarri will be a little frustrated that his players have been unable to turn more of their five home draws this season into wins, though they have won two of their last three matches at their own stadium and lost just one of their most recent eight there.
Furthermore, Il Toro are unbeaten in their last four meetings with their visitors next week. They beat them 3-2 at the Dacia Arena earlier in the current campaign and have lost just one of their last six games against them in Turin. I’m backing Torino’s home form to see them through again next week. We chose StanJames.com to provide the Serie A football odds for today – their prices cannot be matched for value.
When the teams featured in today’s free set of Torino vs Udinese predictions go toe-to-toe, excitement and goalmouth action is usually a guarantee. In 100% of their last four clashes against each other, both sides found a way to breach the other’s defences. In fact, the sheer number of goals over that quartet of contests is worth detailing further.
In total, nineteen goals flew in over those action-packed games, which works out an average of a little under five goals per ninety minutes. The Zebrette may not have had much success against their hosts in recent seasons, though they have scored on each of their last two visits to that particular part of Turin.
Massimo Oddo’s men have a great habit of scoring goals in the majority of the game they play in general. Interestingly, they have only failed to score twice in their last eleven outings in total. Only Champions League chasing Lazio and Napoli have stopped Udinese from grabbing a goal since late November. The Zebrette might find it tough to get a positive result next week but they have every chance of getting a consolation goal. Betfair have some wonderful odds to take advantage off, so we recommend you back our second tip with them.
