That's insane when you consider the fuss that's been made about Fergie putting out a weak team against Hull tomorrow. I can't imagine Hull going into that match as favourites let alone 1.16! Even the draw is out at 10, crazy!
The draw is at 1.30 in the Treviso vs Ascoli match! I have a matched bet on it and was tempted to not lay it. The teams have nothing to play for so it is not neccessarly a fix, but I would suspect that it is.
The draw in this relegation battle means Torino (fellow relegation rival) would need to win their last two games against top-six sides (Genoa and Roma) to finish above Chievo. If the somewhat expected happens and Torino earns no points against Genoa, then a draw in this game puts Bologna above Torino on goal difference with the final game to play. Bologna play at home on the last day to a poor side who have nothing to play for. They only need equal or better the result Torino gets against away at Roma to survive.
IMO, that's why the odds are like they are... because it's an Italian job!
There seems to be alot of money flying around at betfair this last week or two on Italian football with draws plummeting in odds. I was gubbed at Bluesq last week after a serie A game with such an arb on a draw. It actually finished in a win for one of the teams. I notice tonight there is a serie B game where 307k of the 330k bet is on the draw.
