As "safe" bets go, they normally don't pay much. You can, however, accumulate five of them in one and - bingo! You're onto something! Here are the best ones from the upcoming Sunday (Sep. 16) with the final odds of +355.
AS ROMA TO WIN. VS CHIEVO (-400)
(Italy - Serie A - Sunday, September 16, 5:30 AM ET)
Chievo have a lot of problems at the moment. Not only have they gone without a win in Serie A so far this season (D1 L2), but have also been deducted three points and fined $232,000 for intentionally misreporting transfer fees to create false profit margins. Add to that the fact that the team has lost five consecutive trips to see off AS Roma, and this becomes a no-brainer.
WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS TO SCORE VS. BURNLEY (-475)
(England - Premier League - Sunday, September 16, 7:30 AM ET)
The start of the current season has been a nightmare for Burnley. By trying to juggle the Europa League qualifying games with the opening matches of the Premier League, the Clarets have ended up without a spot in EL group stage as well as without a win in PL (D1 L3). Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the other hand, have gone unbeaten in their past three matches in all competitions (W2 D1), scoring at least a goal in each of those games, including against Manchester City.
JUVENTUS TO WIN VS. SASSUOLO (-455)
(Italy - Serie A - Sunday, September 16, 8:00 AM ET)
Juventus still remains the only side yet to lose a game in Serie A this season and is very likely to continue that trend, despite facing off against a side that is currently sitting 2nd in the Italian top-flight. Their current position notwithstanding, Sassuolo still have lost more games against Juventus than versus any other team in Serie A (8), allowing an incredible total of 25 goals along the way.
WERDER BREMEN TO WIN VS. NURNBERG (-150)
(Germany - Bundesliga - Sunday, September 16, 8:30 AM ET)
Werder Bremen are set to extend their unbeaten run of 14 home games (W6 D7) when meeting up with the newly-promoted Bavarian side Nurnberg, which is yet to win a contest in Germany's top-flight this season (D1 L1) and has gone with seven consecutive away defeats in Bundesliga, stretching back to 2013-14. Werder Bremen have only won one of their last six meetings with Nurnberg (W1 D3 L2), but have a W10 D4 L4 historic record against them and are in better shape this year.
UNDER 2.5 GOALS IN VALLADOLID VS. ALAVES (-210)
(Spain - La Liga - Sunday, September 16, 11:30 AM ET)
Although the very last two meetings between the two sides produced three goals each in 2015-16, this year both have not been scoring even that. The last eight contests (including friendlies) with the participation of newly-promoted Valladolid this season have averaged just 0.87 goals per game, while Alaves have managed to score just twice during the first three Matchweeks of La Liga, netting both strikes against Espanyol.
