Catania - Bologna - under 2,5
In sports betting, there are going to be some times where you think you are on the right side, but luck jumps up and takes a winner down to being a loser. This was the case last week, when we thought we had pinned yet another winner in soccer. Unfortunately for us, bad luck can stop even the best of picks. In the Catania vs. Bologna game, we thought there would not be much scoring. With that in mind, we put out a pick of under 2.5. The January 18th match looked very good for us for a long while, with the game riding at a 1-1 tie for quite some time.
Fate had it that a late goal would spoil all of the fun, though. In the 86th minute, a goal was scored to knock the pick on its belly and make the over 2.5 a winner. Though it looked so good for so long, the late defensive mishap cost our backers their stake in the game and reminded us all yet again that there are going to be some times when the result does not match the play on the field. Unfortunately, that’s the way it goes in sports betting and you cannot win them all.
