How does an actual fan get Super Bowl tickets?

do forex robots really work

It’s really difficult. But being a season ticket holder can help.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta has a capacity of 71,000, and yet less than 5,000 tickets were ever available to the general public for Super Bowl LIII if they didn’t already own season tickets.

NFL rules and partnerships claim the vast majority of tickets before they ever have hopes of going on sale, so if you’re a fan hoping to score a ticket it can be a near-impossible task. How do you, as an ordinary Joe get a Super Bowl ticket?

Where do all the tickets go?

The public are the very bottom of the pecking order when it comes to Super Bowl ticket availability, according to a blog from ticketing site TickPick. The two teams going get the first allotment, which is 17.5 percent of tickets each. These tickets are made available to players to give to their family and friends, with season ticket holders getting opportunities to go to the game — either through a gift from the team, or individual sale.

The host team (in this case the Falcons) get the next 6.2 percent of tickets. Similar to the participating teams, these are typically distributed to season ticket holders. From there every other team in the NFL gets a piece — 1.2 percent each, or 33.6 percent total. These are given to players, media members and season ticket holders as well.

This leaves the last rung, 25.2 percent of seats which are retained by the NFL. No, these aren’t made available to the public. Instead the majority have already been accounted for, sold or allotted years in advance to partners and sponsors. These are organizations running travel packages, selling “fan experiences,” as well as major league sponsors to distribute between their employees.

So how can I get a ticket?

There is an NFL-run lottery to give away tickets, but your time for that is long past. Five hundred tickets are given away each year to fans who send actual, paper mail to an NFL address in New York City. This runs from February 1st until June 1st each year, meaning the 500 tickets have been accounted for a long time ago.

At this point your best bet is to get those tickets the NFL have sold to corporate partners. Sites like StubHub, PrimeSport, Vivid Seats and TickPick will have tickets available — providing you’re willing to pay for them.

There’s also an on-site NFL seller located at Mercedes Benz Stadium, however these are known to be drastically higher than the secondary market.

How much are tickets right now?

The cheapest tickets available right now are $2,519, located in the corner nosebleeds. If you want to sit lower level, well, get ready because the cheapest lower level seats are selling for $4,130 in the end zone.

Remember, if a deal seems too good to be true, it is.

Every year stories emerge of fans being duped with fake Super Bowl tickets. In 2018 a smattering of fans paid up to $2,800 in Minneapolis on Craigslist for tickets, assuming they were getting the real thing — only to find out they’d been tricked.

Ticket brokers noted that the fraudulent tickets for Super Bowl LII were the best they’d ever seen, so be careful out there.

Sean Payton is handling Saints’ loss to Rams like a bad breakup

do forex robots really work

Ice cream and Netflix? We’ve all been there.

The rest of the world has moved on to the Super Bowl. But for Sean Payton, the pain of losing the NFC Championship Game is lingering like a bad breakup.

Payton told Nick Underhill of The Advocate that he spent three solid days wallowing on his couch after the loss, eating Jeni’s ice cream and binging shows on Netflix. How relatable.

“There are certain vices you gravitate towards, and mine is probably sugar,” Payton said. “Much like what we told the team: Obviously there are disappointments you go through relative to your season, and this one where it happened in the postseason, we’ve got to be able to get past that and we will.”

So what did Payton binge watch? Something mindless and distracting like The Office or Parks and Rec? Something intense and all-consuming like Breaking Bad or Justified? Something au courant, like a Fyre Fest documentary?

Well, a deep dive into a serial killer’s life should put a blown call in better perspective, at least. Wonder what Payton thought about Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

Payton said he will probably watch the Super Bowl, per Luke Johnson of NOLA News. If Payton changes his mind, Netflix has him covered.

Roger Goodell finally addressed the issue publicly, saying on Wednesday during his press conference that the officials just aren’t going to get it right every single time.

“Whenever officiating is part of any kind of discussion post-game, it’s never a good outcome for us … but we also know that our officials are human. We also know they are officiating a game in which they often have to make snap decisions under difficult circumstances,” Goodell said, via CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson.

The blown call against defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman still haunts Saints fans and Payton alike. But time — and ice cream and Netflix binges — eventually will heal all wounds.

VT’s transfer exodus now includes two QBs

do forex robots really work

Two years in a row, the Hokies have a ton of attrition.

The transfer bug is biting Virginia Tech’s football program again.

In late January, quarterback Josh Jackson, who started in the 2017 and 2018 seasons before suffering a season-ending injury in September 2018, announced he’ll leave to play football elsewhere. Earlier in the day, Hokies head coach Justin Fuente released this statement:

As head coach I certainly understand when young men desire to explore their options by entering themselves in the NCAA’s transfer portal. I respect the fact that each individual’s circumstances and situation are different. We will continue to support all our student-athletes and wish them best whether their future is at Virginia Tech or another institution.

The statement is a little odd — it’s not often you hear head coaches doing public damage control in this fashion when players transfer — but Fuente has suffered a ton of attrition over the last year. Jackson, who threw for 2,991 yards and 20 touchdowns during his redshirt freshman year in 2017, was expected to return to VT in 2019, though reports swirled near the beginning of the 2018 season that he might leave the program then.

Virginia Tech’s already losing several other transfers heading into 2019.

  • Back-up quarterback Hendon Hooker, who announced he entered the transfer portal a week after Jackson’s transfer.
  • Receiver Eric Kumah, who entered the transfer portal on Jan. 22
  • Tight end Chris Cunningham, who entered the portal on the same day
  • Running back Deshawn McClease announced the following day that he’ll leave
  • Linebacker Rico Kearney, who announced a transfer to UCF
  • Receiver Sean Savoy, who announced in November he was leaving

Also:

Sure, six guys and an assistant coach wouldn’t seem like that much to worry about, but it’s concerning after looking at who Fuente already lost in 2018.

Throughout last year, the Hokies saw a slew of departures on defense that weren’t because eligibility clocks ran out. They lost 12 players and roughly a whole defense’s worth of production and upside, plus co-coordinator Galen Scott in the spring. The losses included first-round picks Tremaine and Terrell Edmunds and defensive end Trevon Hill, who was dismissed during the season as the team’s leader in tackles for loss.

If there’s any good news these days, it’s that the Hokies aren’t losing anyone with eligibility remaining to the 2019 draft. On another hand, that’s partly a product of already losing a lot. Sending players to the draft is usually the sign of a healthy program.

Adding to the problem: Fuente needs a big year after an unusual stumble in 2018. There’s never a good time to lose players, but it’s especially not now.

I wrote after the Hokies’ Military Bowl loss to Cincinnati that while things were bad in 2018, there was reason to expect improvement in 2019:

Jackson, who threw for 2,991 yards and 20 touchdowns during his redshirt freshman year in 2017, should be ready to go next year. He’ll lose running back Steven Peoples, but much or all of his receiving corps should be back. The offensive line had three seniors starting, so the Hokies will need answers there.

On defense, the Hokies should return a handful of their leading tacklers, with an NFL decision from junior edge defender Reggie Floyd still on the table. Only five starters from the Military Bowl are out of eligibility. Just one of the defenders atop the bowl game two-deep (DT Ricky Walker) is guaranteed to move on.

So this team could have a lot of key returners, though after the offseason Tech just had, no one can say for sure what the roster will look like.

But it would just be hard to have the same attrition two years in a row. Bad seasons can happen to the best head coaches, and few are denying Fuente’s ability after just this year. If the Hokies aren’t better next year, though, his outlook could shift.

Fuente’s 10- and nine-win seasons in 2016 and 2017 give him some breathing room after a 6-7 season last year. If the Hokies aren’t better soon, though, his outlook could shift. Any more of this turnover will only make having a better year harder.

WWE legend Mick Foley got confused for Robin Lopez’s dad at the Nets-Bulls game

do forex robots really work

Family reunions are beautiful.

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley went to the Brooklyn Nets’ game on Tuesday night and got a hilarious question from a fan.

The best part isn’t just the confusion, but how much fun Foley had with it. During the game he cheered on his “son,” and had a blast with it.

Lopez didn’t have an amazing night, but that doesn’t matter — because his long-lost pops was there to see to see him play, after all these years.

This family reunion is so beautiful.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Preview

do forex robots really work

Premier League champions Manchester City will welcome Arsenal to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s title-chasers are short-priced favourites at 3/10 to beat Unai Emery’s men, while the Londoners are valued at a massive 15/2, with the draw priced at 52/10.

*Please note that this article was written prior to Premier League fixtures on 29 & 30 January.

English Premier League

Manchester City vs Arsenal    
Sunday 3 February  
Emirates Stadium 
18:30

To Win 
Man City 3/10
Draw 52/10
Arsenal 15/2


Manchester City

Manchester City are continuing their pursuit of four separate trophies and are aiming to repeat the triumphs of last season as they strive to become the first team since Manchester United in 2008-09 to retain the league title. The Citizens are currently second in the table, lying just four points behind leaders Liverpool with 15 games of the campaign still remaining.

At the time of writing – before visiting Newcastle United on Tuesday – Guardiola’s side have won eight games in a row in all competitions, scoring 33 goals in the process. They have also gone six games without conceding a goal, with their last coming against Liverpool at the start of January. 

Looking at their home form this year of five wins in five matches, beating Liverpool 2-1, Rotherham United 7-0, Burton Albion 9-0, Wolves 3-0 and Burnley 5-0, it’s easy to see why they are short favourites at 3/10. If that still isn’t convincing, Guardiola’s side have beaten Arsenal in each of their last four meetings, scoring 11 goals while conceding just once. 

Bernardo Silva, one of City’s standout performers this campaign, has scored in back-to-back Premier League meetings against the Gunners. Visit www.hollywoodbets.net for betting on the Portuguese star and others to score anytime in the match.

Arsenal

After being dumped out of the FA Cup on their own turf by Manchester United last Friday, Arsenal face another Manchester club with fear of their top-four hopes taking a hit as they visit reigning champions Manchester City, who have beaten them in each of their previous four meetings. The Gunners are currently three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and level with United on 44 points, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side ready to overtake Emery’s men on the league table if they slip up. 

Arsenal’s last league victory at the Etihad Stadium came in January 2015 when a penalty from Santi Cazorla and header from Olivier Giroud secured a fully-deserved win for the north London side. The following campaign saw the Gunners come back twice to earn a 2-2 draw in Manchester, but they suffered consecutive defeats on their next two visits to the Etihad, losing 2-1 and 3-1. Emery’s men will be desperate to avoid a third consecutive loss away to City.

Arsenal’s away form coming into this game is a huge worry for Emery as the Gunners are without a win in their last five Premier League matches on the road. They drew with Manchester United (2-2) and Brighton (1-1) and lost to Southampton (3-2), Liverpool (5-1) and West Ham (1-0). The signs aren’t looking good for the north London club for Sunday, but with the terrifying duo of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, Arsenal will believe they can cause real damage to their opponents. Emery will be hoping to have Croatia international Ivan Perisic in his squad – the Inter Milan winger is reportedly keen on joining the Gunners before the transfer deadline passes.

Probable line-ups:

Man City: 4-3-3

Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy; David Silva, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva; Sterling, Aguero, Sane.

Arsenal: 4-2-3-1

Leno; Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Koscielny, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Torreira; Iwobi, Ramsey, Aubameyang; Lacazette.

Prediction: Sterling to Score Anytime & Man City to Win (14/10)

It can be quite tricky when writing these games before knowing the outcome of their midweek matches, especially with the possibility of both teams boosting their squads before the transfer deadline passes, but regardless of what happens then, I can still only see one outcome and that’s a Manchester City victory. Guardiola’s side know they cannot afford to slip up here. With very little to offer on the home win, I suggest using Hollywoodbets’ Price Boosts and Specials and jump on Raheem Sterling to Score Anytime and City to win.

Jurgen Klopp: Salah is not a diver

do forex robots really work
Mohamed Salah and Jurgen Kloop shaking hands
Jurgen Klopp has dismissed suggestions that Mohamed Salah is guilty of diving, saying there is too much scrutiny on the biggest teams in the Premier League.

Salah was accused of flopping under a challenge from Mamadou Sakho during Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Crystal Palace, though no penalty was awarded.

Asked about the incident, Klopp said you can’t call a player a diver because of one incident, and pointed to the fact that Salah earned and scored valid penalties in wins over Brighton, Arsenal and Newcastle leading up the Palace game.

This is the first situation where he went down without [a penalty] and you speak about all the other situations as well?” Klopp said.

The other situations there is nothing to talk about – it is a penalty, done. If this is the first then why do we talk about?

“There are other situations, much more obvious situations, that we don’t talk about and nobody is talking about because it’s not [Manchester] City, it’s not [Manchester] United, it’s not Liverpool, it’s not Arsenal or it’s not Chelsea. All the others can do it from time to time and nobody really talks about it. It’s all fine.

All the penalties against him [Salah] were penalties but people handle it like it was halfway diving – it was not. We don’t need blood for a foul in football. That’s all I will say about it. No, I didn’t speak to him about it.”

Klopp also pointed to an alleged dive by Leicester’s Jamie Vardy against Southampton earlier this month, and suggested the striker was unlikely to be rebuked for his actions.

Did anyone talk to Jamie Vardy when, I forget the opponent [Southampton], everybody saw, you remember the situation?” the German boss added.

“That was proper… he jumped in. Is Jamie a bad person because of that? I don’t say now he is a diver. That is another situation.

“You have them in the back, you are there, you feel something, do you have to go down? Probably not. I don’t have to speak to players about obvious things. He knows that. Don’t go down in situations like that.”

Álvaro Morata new Atletico Madrid signing
Barcelona’s 2-0 win over Girona saw Lionel Messi extend his La Liga scoring streak to seven games. The Argentine superstar has now scored or assisted in every La Liga game he’s played in since September. Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid cruised past Getafe and Espanyol respectively. Sevilla, who at some stage were the league’s highest scoring team, managed to find their scoring boots and thrashed Levante 5-0 to ensure they remain fourth heading to this round. Can Leo Messi continue with his goal scoring form?

Friday 1 February

Huesca 27/20 
Draw 43/20 
Real Valladolid 21/10 
(22:00)

Rock-bottomed Huesca will be looking for salvation points in the first game of gameweek 22 when they play host to Real Valladolid at the Estadio El Alcoraz. The hosts, however, have a mountain to climb to reach the safe zone which is currently as many as nine points away. Valladolid kicked away from the red zone when they beat Celta Vigo 2-1 last Sunday. The visitors are now 13th on the standings and avoiding defeat against any team that’s below them on the standings would be something they will want to achieve to ensure safety. This is a fixture Huesca can target as they were both playing in the Segunda Division last season. I don’t see Valladolid losing here, so I suggest backing them on the Win/Draw Double Chance at 11/20. 

Saturday 2 February 


Levante 15/10 
Draw 9/4 
Getafe 37/20 
(14:00)

Levante broke into the top half of the La Liga table after a 2-0 victory over Real Valladolid at home. That was short lived after the Frogs were brought back down to earth by Sevilla, thrashing them 5-0. Getafe saw their unbeaten run come to an end at the Wanda Metropolitan Stadium, losing 2-0 to Atetico Madrid. Head-to-head record suggests that Under 2.5 is the best bet in this fixture as they have scored less than three goals in their last five meetings. As the form suggests, get on Under 2.5 Goals at 15/20. 

Real Sociedad 5/4 
Draw 9/4 
Athletic Bilbao 23/10 
(17:15)

Real Sociedad dropped down to ninth place after yet another disappointing showing in a goalless draw at home to strugglers Huesca last time out. It was the third consecutive match which saw Imanol Alguacil’s men share the spoils. Any team would dream of the kind of form Athletic Bilbao are in. After the arrival of Quique Setien, the Lions are unbeaten in nine matches. This will be an interesting encounter yet very difficult to predict because you never know what to expect with Sociedad – they can beat Real Madrid 2-0 at the Bernabeu and two weeks later they fail to score against Huesca at home. Avoid a result here and get on Both Teams to Score at 17/20.

Barcelona 3/10 
Draw 47/10 
Valencia 7/1 
(19:30)

Barcelona will be the massive odds on favourites to continue their fantastic run in La Liga where they have been top of the league since August. Barca have won their last eight league games. At home they have a good record of eight wins, two draws and one defeat. With Messi and Suarez they are the highest scoring team in the league with 58 goals. Valencia will head into this in high spirits following last weekend’s 3-0 home win over Villarreal. Barcelona should still be too good even against a motivated Valencia side. Keep it simple and back the Catalans at 3/10.

Celta Vigo 47/20 
Draw 51/20 
Sevilla 11/10 
(21:45)

We have quite a game here on Saturday evening to get excited about when 17th-placed Celta Vigo entertain fourth-placed Sevilla. Celta are just one point from safety and can put some distance between themselves and Rayo Vallecano with a win here. In gameweek 22, Sevilla got a fantastic result when humiliating Levante 5-0. That was a good statement and a reminder to what this team is capable of. Celta Vigo have lost five consecutive league matches and I see Sevilla making it six. Get on the visitors at valuable 11/10.

Sunday 3 February

Villarreal 9/10 
Draw 26/10 
Espanyol 29/10 
(13:00)

Villarreal have been very poor this season with three wins, nine loses and nine defeats in 21 matches. The Yellow Submarine find themselves in the relegation zone as a consequence of their poor form. However, this is a good opportunity for the hosts to end their eight-match winless run. The visitors are just six points above their opponents. With one win from their last 10 La Liga matches, you can understand why they are priced up at 29/10 here. Espanyol have conceded 34 goals so far this season, only Huesca have conceded more (39). Take a chance and back the Yellow Submarine at 9/10.

Real Betis 24/10 
Draw 21/10 
Atletico Madrid 5/4 
(17:15)

Real Betis finally ended a streak of five successive matches without a win in gameweek 20 when they got a stoppage time penalty and beat Girona 3-2. Los Beticos failed to make back-to-back wins when they tackled Athletic Bilbao last weekend, losing the match 1-0. Atletico Madrid cruised past Getafe and sit five points behind leaders Barcelona. There is no room for error for Diego Simeone’s men as they can’t afford anymore slip ups. Atleti will be boosted by the arrival of Alvaro Morata, who completed his loan move from Chelsea early this week. Back Atleti to continue putting pressure on log leaders.

Eibar 7/10 
Draw 26/10 
Girona 39/10 
(19:30)

Eibar and Girona have been struggling badly in this term of La Liga coming into Sunday’s tie at the Municipal de Ipurua. This match has all the ingredients of a dull affair given both teams’ recent performances, with Eibar drawing six of their last eight and Girona winless in their last 10 matches. Head-to-head points in favour of the hosts after they have won all their three La Liga meetings. Back Eibar for a narrow win at 7/10.

Real Madrid 1/4 
Draw 5/1 
Deportivo Alaves 9/1 
(21:45)

Real Madrid’s season did not begin quite well as they lost their record goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo and went on to lose a series of matches, including a 3-0 and 5-0 defeat against Sevilla and Barcelona respectively. Change of management was inevitable; Santiago Solari was called upon to save Los Blancos from the mess. The club is now winning games and they are back to third on the ladder, where they finished off last season. With the UEFA Champions League coming up in February, Real Madrid will want to build confidence by winning games like these. Back Real Madrid on the (-1) Handicap at 13/20. 

Monday 4 February 

Rayo Vallecano 5/4 
Draw 21/10 
Leganes 24/10 
(22:00)
Rayo Vallecano’s incredible form has seen the Reds move out of the bottom three for the first time since matchday five. Vallecano are in the form of their lives, they have revived the spirit that saw them win the Segunda Division. The hosts have won four of their last five matches, picking up 13 points. These sides are now level on 23 points and a win here can see either team move up to 10th depending on the head to head record. Leganes have struggled on their travels, losing seven and drawing three of their 11 matches on the road. Get on Rayo Vallecano to continue their sizzling hot form.

TREBLE @ 8/1

Hannover 17/4  
Draw 31/10 
Leipzig 6/10 
(21:30) 

Hannover lie second from bottom on the standings and have the worst home record in the league. They were thrashed 5-1 at Borussia Dortmund last time out, making it three defeats in a row. Leipzig hammered Dusseldorf 4-0 and will be looking to build on that. The relegation candidates are fighting for their lives in the danger zone and won’t make this easy for the Red Bulls. However, Leipzig should do enough to come away with maximum points. 

Saturday 2 February

Hoffenheim 9/20 
Draw 38/10 
Dusseldorf 52/10 
(16:30) 

Hoffenheim ended a run of nine matches without a victory after thrashing Freiburg 4-2 last time out. They will take on Dusseldorf who were on a four-game winning streak prior to their 4-0 drubbing on home soil at the hands of Hoffenheim. The hosts have been out of form but last week’s win would have been a moral boosting win if anything. Dusseldorf will be looking to get back to winning ways and should at least get a goal. Both Teams to Score – Yes – is tipped at 5/10. 

Bayer Leverkusen 9/2 
Draw 36/10 
Bayern Munich 5/10 
(16:30) 

Bayer Leverkusen have been in great form with three wins from their last four matches, including a 3-0 victory away to Wolfsburg last weekend. Bayern Munich have been brilliant with seven consecutive wins and will be looking to add to that. The last four meetings between these sides have produced 20 goals at an average of five per match. Get on the Over 3.5 Goals market at 19/20. 

Eintracht Frankfurt 23/10 
Draw 26/10 
Borussia Dortmund 21/20 
(16:30) 

Eintracht Frankfurt come off the back of an exciting 2-2 draw away to Werder Bremen. Table-toppers Borussia Dortmund have been outstanding with 15 wins from 19 matches, scoring 50 goals and conceding just 19 times. The last six head-to-heads have seen each team find the back of the net. I’m backing first half – Both Teams to Score – Yes – at 23/10! 

Hertha Berlin 13/10 
Draw 47/20 
Wolfsburg 2/1 
(16:30) 

Hertha Berlin were held to a 2-2 draw at home against Schalke last time out, while Wolfsburg suffered their second straight defeat, going down 3-0 on home soil against a rampant Bayer Leverkusen side. A cagey affair is on the cards with both sides struggling for consistency. The Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market looks well worth a punt at 17/20.

Nuremburg 26/10 
Draw 26/10 
Werder Bremen 19/20 
(16:30) 

Nuremburg have been absolutely dreadful with six consecutive defeats. The basement-dwellers have registered just two wins from 19 matches, scoring 16 goals and conceding 43 times. Werder Bremen have battled to maintain winning form but have looked fairly decent on their travels of late. The hosts are on a downward spiral and look far from a team capable of turning that form around. Back Werder Bremen to edge the win.

Schalke 27/20 
Draw 47/20 
Monchengladbach 2/1 
(19:30) 

Schalke are unbeaten in their last three matches, including two wins and a 2-2 draw at Hertha Berlin last weekend. Monchengladbach have been superb at home but their away form has let them down this season. The last six meetings between these sides have seen both teams find the back of the net. Both Teams to Score – Yes – is the way to go at 7/10.

Augsburg have been diabolical as they are winless in their last 10 matches with seven losses, including three on the spin. Mainz were impressive last time out as they made it back-to-back wins with a 2-1 home win over Nuremburg. The Carnival club have lost just one of their last seven games and will be looking to get another positive result here. Take Mainz on the Win/Draw Double Chance at 13/20. 

Stuttgart 23/20 
Draw 49/20 
Freiburg 23/10 
(19:00) 

Relegation-threatened Stuttgart have been dismal in recent weeks with four losses on the trot. Their opponents, Freiburg, have also been poor of late with two defeats on the bounce. While no team has scored fewer goals than Stuttgart this season (15), Freiburg have been dried up in the goal scoring department away from home. With that being said, the Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market is tipped at 9/10.

Empoli 9/10

Chievo 29/10 
(16:00) 

Saturday’s Serie A action gets underway with an early relegation contest between Empoli and Chievo. The hosts are winless in their last six matches, including five defeats, while Chievo are yet to win a game on the road. The reverse tie ended goalless and I’m not expecting too many goals to be scored here. The Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market is tipped at 17/20.

Napoli 7/20 
Draw 4/1 
Sampdoria 7/1 
(19:00) 

Napoli remain unbeaten at home with nine wins and two draws from 11 games, scoring 25 goals and conceding just seven times. Sampdoria are coming off an impressive 4-0 win at home against Udinese which would have given the team a confidence boost ahead of Saturday’s clash with Napoli. Revenge will also be another factor to consider after La Samp smashed the Azzurri 4-0 in the corresponding fixture. And that’s just what I’m backing. Napoli on the Matchbet & Both Teams to Score offers plenty of value at 16/10. 

Juventus 1/6 
Draw 6/1 
Parma 17/1 
(21:30) 

Defending champions Juventus are the only team in the league yet to taste defeat with 19 wins from 21 matches. Parma have won their last two games on the road but were humiliated last time out after going two goals up against SPAL only to ship three and lose the game 3-2 at home. The Old Lady will most likely just add to their humiliation. I can’t see anything less than a home victory. Back Juventus to win both halves at 23/20.

Sunday 3 February 

SPAL 26/10 
Draw 21/10 
Torino 23/20 
(13:30) 

SPAL’s 3-2 come-from-behind victory at Parma last weekend showed guts, determination and heart. That win saw them overturn a 12-game winless streak. Torino were simply excellent as well after edging Inter Milan 1-0 with a brilliant display of tactical and organised football. Both sides are on the up and will be looking to build on last weekend’s respective heroics. Get on Both Teams to Score – Yes – at 11/10.

Genoa 15/10 
Draw 43/20 
Sassuolo 39/20 
(16:00) 

Genoa and Sassuolo come into this contest on the back of impressive victories with the former winning 3-1 at Empoli, while the latter hammered Cagliari 3-0 at home. Genoa have been inconsistent at home, while Sassuolo have struggled to maintain winning form. A cagey affair looks very much likely, along with a lack of goalscoring opportunities. Five of the last six meetings have produced Under 2.5 Goals so I suggest you follow the trend at 7/10. 

Udinese 47/20 
Draw 43/20 
Fiorentina 5/4 
(16:00) 

Udinese have been poor of late with back-to-back losses, conceding six goals and finding the back of the net just once. Fiorentina ousted Chievo 4-3 in an entertaining seven-goal thriller last weekend and will look to add to that here. The Viola have won the last four meetings against Udinese, scoring eight goals and conceding only once. The away win is on the cards. 

Inter Milan 1/4 
Draw 9/2 
Bologna 10/1 
(19:00) 

Inter Milan’s run of five games without a defeat came to an end last weekend as they suffered a 1-0 loss at Torino. Bologna remain winless on their travels, scoring nine goals and conceding 19 times in the process. I’m expecting the hosts to come back strong this week. Back the Nerazzurri on the (-1) Handicap at 15/20. 

Roma 21/20 
Draw 51/20 
AC Milan 49/20 
(21:30) 

Roma were held to a 3-3 draw at Atalanta last time out but return to the Stadio Olimpico where they have won three on the spin. However, for all of their great attacking football, the Giallorossi have struggled defensively. AC Milan are unbeaten in their last four matches, including a goalless draw against Napoli last time out. They have looked solid at the back and I’m backing them on the Win/Draw Double Chance against Roma at 7/10.

Monday 4 February

Frosinone 6/1 
Draw 7/2 
Lazio 9/20 
(20:00) 

Frosinone surprised all last weekend after thumping Bologna 4-0 away from home, ending a run of 10 matches. Lazio, on the other hand, have lost back-to-back games but against the top two clubs respectively (Juventus and Napoli). The hosts will have a new-found confidence of swagger about themselves and should find the back of the net. Lazio will be desperate to get back to winning ways and should at least get on the score sheet as well. Both Teams to Score – Yes – is tipped at 13/20. 

Cagliari 7/2 
Draw 28/10 
Atalanta 15/20 
(22:00) 

Last but not least, a wounded Cagliari side will take on free-scoring Atalanta on Monday night. The hosts were hammered 3-0 at Sassuolo last weekend, while Atalanta have won back-to-back travels, scoring 11 goals. La Dea have won four of the last five meetings against Cagliari and look likely to add to that. Take Atalanta to win.
