Parma vs SPAL: Top Free Betting Tips
Parma and Spal definitely did not envision such a weak season and were hoping to get back to the elite. Unfortunately, their only purpose at this point it to remain in Serie B as the teams are dangerously close to the relegation zone.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
This is the perfect matchup for goals because both teams are identical and in similar forms. The previous game between them in October ended in a 2:2 draw and there is a high chance that we will see something similar in this game too. Both sides have been having predominantly games with a lot of goals, mostly over 2.5, so consider this market as an alternative to the both teams score bet. However, we think that Serie B is one of the rare leagues where BTTS is a safer bet than the over 2.5 alternative. Four out of the last five games for SPAL ended with goals from both sides and the team has proven once again that its defense is horrible. We expect them to score but we are even surer that Parma will not end the match without one or two goals at least.
Match Result – Draw
After the previous h2h game and both teams' recent matches, we expect to see a second draw between these two teams. Both sides had a bunch of draws in recent weeks as well as a lot of draws overall throughout the season. Parma are the team with the most ties out of the entire league – 11/25 games while SPAL had a total of nine. Both sides are out of shape and have been having serious issues against almost all of their recent opponents. A draw will be a positive result for both sides, so we think that the odds deserve a shot.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
Judging by their all-season stats, recent games, and the previous head-to-head games, there should be a minimum of 10 corners in this game. Here are some stats that should be enough to convince you in our logic. Parma and Spal have both taken a considerable number of corners this season – their average stats in the first 25 games were 5.32 and 5.16 corners per game. At home, Parma took an average of 5.50 corners per game while Spal took an average of 4.42 in their 12 outings. The previous match between them ended with 11 corners in October.
