Fixed Games in Football Spezia – Ascoli (Serie B)

As the season draws to a close, I am having to look at other markets to bet on. I stumbled across the Italian Serie B League. Italy is well know for suspicious draws at the end of the season and its almost blatant.

Spezia – Ascoli

Both need a point to guarantee playoffs and avoiding relegation respectively. The draw is 1.57 pre kick off . That's crazy.


If you look at the market on Bet365, there are only a handful of things you can bet on. Looking at the odds, a 0-0 is on the cards.

You might think that this is because its Serie B and there aren't many markets but if you pick another game, there are many markets.

Crotone vs Virtus Entella

You can bet on Asian Lines, Corners, Goals, Halves, Player, Specials and 10 minutes. Something is definitely fishy about the Spezia – Ascoli game.

Thats not the only suspicious game in Serie B. It may no be as obvious but the odds on Crotone are suspiciously high.


Looking at the table, Crotone are second with a chance to grab top spot if Cagliari slip up. They are at home to a team that are 8th. You'd expect them to be odds on at least but you can get 3.2 for them. Entella need 3 points to guarantee a play off spot. I smell an away win here. Basically, Crotone are promoted with a slim chance of getting first but unlikely.

We'll see how it all pans out. I am tempted to back the obvious results but something tells me to stay away and just enjoy the spectacle.
