Serie A – The most competitive league at the moment

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Inter has resurrected, Napoli are looking like they could do it, Roma are really strong, Juventus have the credibility to do it again and Lazio could pull a surprise…

Who would believe that Inter Milan would somehow find their way to the top not after one or two games but after sixteen games, and who would believe that Juventus would beat Napoli in their home while Napoli were on an excellent run.

After years of struggle with rapid change of players and coaches…

Inter Milan are finally looking like a team who can run away with the Scudetto. They are the only team together with Barcelona and Manchester City who haven’t lost a league game this season in the top 5 leagues.

Inter Milan have the lethal Mario Icardi who actually had stopped getting recognition from his scandalous private life but now for the excellent player he is and he never disappoints when it comes to scoring goals, and it seems Spalleti keeping Perisic from Man U move has done them extreme good.

Napoli will always show their strength and they somewhat look like they’ll finally get a good run at the Scuddeto this season and even though they look like they are having a dip in form right now, if Sarri could get his mathematics right, they’ll be firing once again.

Juventus are a deceptive team, they often look weak until they meet their strong counterparts and they always grind results against such teams. It must not be forgotten that Juventus were few seasons ago about 14 points away from the top when it was already half of the season, and they still ended up winning the Scudetto, so they are always strong. One can’t afford to be carried away by their inconsistency.

Roma are really looking good at the moment, when you look at their group in the Champions League, you would think they’ll end up in the Europa league, in fact, a lot of people absolutely considered them as the third choice to qualify from the group after Atletico and Chelsea. However, they eventually didn’t just qualify, they qualified as the Group winner.

To tell of the present greatness of the Italian league, Napoli who were Top last week dropped to third after losing for the first time in the league this season against Juventus, they are now back to second after a goalless result at home against Fiorentina, Roma are presently fourth on the log with an outstanding game, if they win their outstanding match, they’ll move straight to third, Lazio are on 5th with two games at hand, if they win those two games, they can fly straight to third position.

In recent years Serie A is just getting better and better and it was about time some team challenged Juventus who made the Scudetto trophy theirs alone. Huge teams like Inter and AC Milan that gave the league strong recognition have lost their fire power especially in Europe and tt’s been long that either of them appeared in the Champions League and they don’t always have a good run whenever they play in the Europa league. However, things are rapidly changing and the competition is getting really tense.

The six times consecutive champions, Juventus, might finally be facing true competition from teams like Inter, Roma, Napoli and perhaps Lazio. Naijabet

Different strategies for making football predictions

Different strategies for predicting football matches. Some popular methods for making football predictions.
How does the weather conditions affect the outcome of football matches

When making your football predictions usually you take into account factors such as statistics, temporary form of team, history, injured and suspended players, but do you check the weather? This often overlooked factor can often influence the outcome of the matches.

Consider the psychological factors

The statistics largely give us an overview of the temporary state of a team, a team traditions, its class, ambitions, and much more. However, how these different factors affect the team in the upcoming match or series of several games? Each player interprets the data differently and makes own conclusions. An interesting question is how the situation around the team affects the psyche of the footballers and the coaches. Often we witness irrational actions of some players or managers. Especially the managers are often criticized for their decisions, which are sometimes even described by football experts as absurd. Nevertheless, most of the critics forget to put themselves in the situation of a manager or player, working under tremendous pressure.

Predicting Half Time/Full Time

A football prediction for half time/full time is rather difficult to make, but it offers quite high odds. Of course, to succeed in such a bet we need a doze of luck. However, we can not rely solely on luck. There are a lot of considerations that can help us in the preparation of such a prediction. The odds, for a complete or partial reversal in the result in the second half of the match, in most cases start at 13.00 and could even reach the attractive 30.00-40.00.

Searching for value against the favorite

Searching the value in every bet is highly essential. In the article “bet with value” we have clearly explained the term “value” as far as the football precitions are concerned. While managing your football predictions, finding the odds, which present probability equal or greater than the one we have decided for the outcome to happen, is of high importance to our success. Thus, we assume that we are beating the house edge given by the bookies and our bet actually has a “value”.

Predicting with exclusion

In most occasions when we are making a football prediction, we try to conclude what will be the final outcome. However, if we want to increase the chances of success, we might want to reason a bit differently. We can make a conclusion on which of the possible outcomes will not occur.

Predicting Under/Over 2.5 goals

Undoubtedly, betting on Under/Over 2.5 goals became very popular. That is why is trying to make it very easy for you to make such a prediction. Most of you might have already noticed the good success of the predictions Under/Over which the forebet algorithm is calculating. These predictions are based on pure mathematics and as we can all see it is giving great results in this case.

Home/Away prediction strategy

This is undoubtedly one of the easiest ways to make your predictions, but probably one of the most effective methods. It is thought that about half of the games in all the leagues end in home wins, another quarter in draws and the rest end in away wins. Therefore, we can conclude that home advantage is real. So having in mind only the home/draw/away results of both sides we can calculate the following probabilities for 1/X/2:
