Expert Betting Tips
Napoli has won 11 of their 13 away matches this season. However, it is unlikely that Napoli will win in Turin. First, Torino has lost only three of their 12 home games, conceding only eight goals. Second, Napoli will be playing after their UEFA Champions League clash, which means they simply do not have the strength to overcome their opponent when needed. So let's take a cautious bet here on Napoli and the total under. Both home Torino and away Napoli are low-scoring teams this season.
