This Volleyball tip comes from the Italian Serie A1 match between Perugia and Padova. Keen to back Padova after their fantastic performance in the cup midweek to beat Piacenza 3-1 but I can't see them actually winning this one, Perugia are of the best teams in the league and should be too strong for them.

There's definitely no reason Padova can't win a set though, as strong as Perugia are at home they quite often drop a set or two, they lost twice at home last season and still dropped 8 sets in their 11 wins.

Padova took a set both home and away against Perugia last season and on both occasions it was the first set. I still don't see a whole lot of value in backing Padova just to win a set though, at 2.3 it doesn't look worth backing when Perugia have the quality to win easily in straight sets.

My reasoning for this market is the way Padova have been playing so far, they've started almost all of their sets quite poorly but as soon as it gets down to the last few points they keep finding that something extra, and 3 times now out of the 6 sets they've won, they've needed extra points. In the 3rd set against Piacenza midweek they trailed 24-21 but played superbly to win 5 points in a row and take the set. Their new signings are working well together and confidence is high in the team, after 2 strong wins in the cup.

Willing to take a punt on this one at odds of 20/1, the markets only available for the first set at the moment but i'd recommend backing the same market in play in the other sets if games looking even enough.
