Italy’s top women’s water polo division won’t officially resume action until next week, but the Serie A1 teams return to action Saturday in a batch of friendlies that bring betting opportunities with them.
Sixth-place Florentia are 119/100 (2.19) underdogs to topple Sport Management (Verona), who sit three places but a whopping 26 points above them in the Serie A1 standings, via OddsPortal. Verona are the slightest of favourites at 28/25 (2.12) and could be good value at that price depending on team selection.
The other showdown between Serie A1 outfits sees last-place 24/1 (25.00) Bogliasco attempt to stun 1/00 (1.01) shoo-ins AS Roma. One might think Roma’s reserves would even be sufficient to best the team six points adrift at the base of Serie A1, but a surprise result could go in their favour under friendly conditions, and those odds may make them worth a small punt.
