Favorites Play Difficult Matches on the Road on SundayPublished January 20, 2019 by Florin P
Some of the best teams in the Italian, French, English and Spanish first divisions try to secure valuable points on the road on Sunday.
24 hours after the intense Saturday derbies have concluded, some of the best European teams resume their quest for precious points. On Sunday, many of these top squads play on the road against weaker teams that rely on home pitch advantage to stand their ground. bet365 Sports and 888 Sport dedicate ample coverage to all these events, so punters can take advantage of great odds on single and combo bets.
Tottenham and Manchester City Play on the Road
Not having home pitch advantage is hardly a problem for Manchester City who travel to Huddersfield. This looks like such a lopsided match that we only get odds of 3/20 free bet on the visitors to win at bet365 Sports. By comparison, the chances of Tottenham defeating Fulham in London are not as good, but they are still favorites, as reflected by the odds of 4/5. One way of tackling this predicament given by low odds, is to bet on both the traveling teams, so the combined odds exceed even value.
Napoli and Lazio Meet in the Serie A Derby
The Italian first division resumes its matches this weekend and the one between Napoli and Lazio is the most anticipated one. The match will take place at 7:30 PM UK time and the hosts are clear favorites with 888 Sport, who gave them odds of 4/5. Lazio have won few games at this arena, but they have a decent record on the road, so a surprise victory is worth considering at odds of 17/5. If the match ends undecided, those who bet on the two teams to split points get odds of 5/2.
Difficult Matches for Lyon and Marseille
Two of the hottest French teams will play on the road this weekend and none of them will have an easy mission. Marseille play the first match at 4 PM UK time and even though they don’t have home pitch advantage, they are favorites against Caen. Punters who bet on their victory can expect odds of 9/10, less than half of the 31/10 offered by Winner Sports on a home win. In the last match of the day in Ligue 1, both Lyon and St. Etienne are priced at 13/5. The two teams share the third place with 33 points each, so a draw doesn’t look unlikely either and the odds of 5/2 could make it worth the chance.
