ROMA-VS-PARMA-02-february-2014-prediction

Betfair is backing AS Roma in this match against Parma, seeing as the second placed Serie A team is the overall favorite to pose some threat to Juve for the title. Roma did lose to Juventus, but that match served as the best wake up call for the team, since then they recorded five consecutive wins in all competitions, one of which is the revenge win against Juventus in Coppa Italia.

The props Roma is getting recently is due to the fact that it has an all balanced squad, where they don’t rely on only one player to score, but can account with six names with five goals in Serie A. Now add to the aforementioned fact that they only conceded 11 goals this season and you get to realize just how difficult Parma’s task really is.

Parma resides currently on the seventh place in Serie A, and can boast about being ahead of both AC Milan and Lazio Roma. They conceded 14 goals, but if they would like to continue to impress they would have to play better than average and hope Cassano finds the net at least once. Another interesting player that will pose threat to Roma players is Parolo, the versatile midfielder who can account with six goals this season.

Among the most popular betting markets is Roma to win to nil, for which the bookie gives 2.16 odds, we’ll go for Roma to win both halves and bet 7 units with 2.10 odds from Betfair.
