Something has got to give soon, with these two draw specialists (7/8 between them), or maybe not ! Torino have the derby game with Juve at the weekend and will surely have one eye on that. Parma played well in the 1-1 draw with Milan and will be keen to get the 3 points here, ahead of a tricky trip to Udinese on Sunday. Both teams are missing several players and the Torino coach will be watching fron the stands, following a ban. The extra day's rest is not to be sniffed at, neither is a little "saver" on the draw.

5 points Parma -1/4 ball 2.05 ..... now trading at 1.99
1.5 points draw 3.0 general quote

Good Luck.

I know that we are only 4 rounds into Serie A, but of the 40 matches played, an incredible 50% have been draws and they have been spread around. Every team has at least one stalemate to their name, infact, only seven sides have one, all the rest, two or more. This is way ahead of stats for recent years, just 13 draws, 32.5% at the same stage last season. So what, I hear you cry !
Well, I would be very wary of backing anyone at short prices for the time being and there could be money to be made trading in running. Big favourites with a lead, like Milan against Parma last weekend, always trade very short ,too short, they are cheap lays , pay handsomely and you do not have to be right very often to make a profit. One winners (loser) pays for a lot of losers (winners) ! Keep this in mind.
