SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Spezia’s meeting with AC Milan in Serie A on Saturday night.
Spezia vs AC Milan (Saturday, 19:45)
AC Milan continue their quest for a first Serie A title in 10 years when they travel to Spezia on Saturday night.
Stefano Pioli’s side appear to be firmly back on track following back-to-back wins against Bologna and Crotone.
The Rossoneri boast an incredible away record in Serie A this season – 9 wins and one draw – and another three points here would pile the pressure on fierce foes Inter who face in-form Lazio on Sunday.
Spezia, meanwhile, have been Serie A’s surprise package this season and they took a massive stride towards securing safety with a 2-1 win at Sassuolo last Saturday.
If we combine AC Milan double chance, over one match goal and over one Spezia card we can get a nice looking 5/6 shot with Bet 365.
Each of AC Milan’s 21 league fixtures this season have produced two or more goals and 17/21 Spezia assignments have generated two or more strikes.
With that in mind, coupled with the Rossoneri’s remarkable aforementioned road record, I’m more than happy to combine AC Milan double chance and over one match goal on Saturday night.
It’s also worth noting that Spezia are the most ill-disciplined team in Italy this term with their 3.3 yellow card per game average, a figure that increases to 3.8 on home turf.
Referee Daniele Chiffi will officiate this dust-up and he is averaging four cards per game this season and when digging slightly deeper it can be seen that he has flashed four or more cautions in 6/9 Serie A assignments to date.
I’m therefore happy to back the battle-hardened hosts to collect at least a couple of cautions on Saturday night and it’s also worth noting that Spezia have received two or more cards in an eye-watering 95% of their fixtures this season so far.
