Serie A / La Liga

Serie A and La Liga action today, and the single strong draw pick is Chievo Verona v Palermo. Three weaker draws are Osasuna v Getafe, Sampdoria v AS Roma and Cesena v Genoa.

Home value picks are AC Milan (1.61) v Udinese, Parma (2.0) v Cagliari, Lazio (1.42) v Lecce, Espanyol (1.89) v Real Zaragoza, and Racing Santander (2.0) v Sporting de Gijon.

If Manchester United v Liverpool were a league game, 1.72 is a value price on United. I'm in for a small punt, hoping the game is played as if it were an EPL match.

And Eddie Howe has a big decision to make. He is, of course, hugely popular at Bournemouth, and rightly so. He has turned Bournemouth around on a shoestring, and his loyalty to one club is something we don't see often these days, and now he has to decide whether to join a sleeping giant of the game, go to Charlton Athletic, or stay at Bournemouth. Three clubs currently within eight league places of each other. I hope he seizes the opportunity of a lifetime and comes to south London - SE25, not SE7.
