      Tip Reasoning

      Since shocking the Italian football world with a 1-0 over defending champions Juventus, Udinese haven’t done much to impress losing 1-0 at home to Palermo and then seeing very little of the ball in a 2-0 loss to Lazio last weekend.

      They lost some significant pieces this past summer and there were concerns about the club’s Serie A security heading into the season. We think that there’s enough experience in the squad and defensive structure on the whole to survive in the top flight, but no game will be an easy proposition and the win over Juventus will increasingly look like an apparition.

      After generally playing poorly and looking like a team that would struggle to emulate a pretty good 2014-15 Serie A campaign, Empoli impressed earning a hard fought 2-2 draw against Napoli and former manager Maurizio Sarri (and several former players) last weekend.

      We still have some doubts about this squad overall. They conceded two goals and the solid defence of 2014-15 doesn’t seem set to carry over into 2015-16. Still, there was a level of compete and battle against Napoli that hadn’t been as evident in the previous two games. Starting on Saturday, they have four games against bottom half opponents, and it should be an opportunity for this team to figure out how good they’ll be.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Crazy Serie A

      Serie A has been something of a crazy league so far. There are more goals than normal, more carelessness and more upsets. It’ll settle down, but until then, we like BTTS bets and we like games like this where you can get goods on the underdog for a double result.

      2. Empoli spark

      We liked that there was some spark in Empoli’s performance last week. They showed some attacking tenacity and hopefully they’ll carry it over on Saturday against an Udinese side that hasn’t had much life so far this season.

      3. Tight game

      Neither side is going to complain about this being a tight game and that increases the chance of a draw and also for the more positive team to steal a win. Empoli comes out on top in that scenario.
