AC Milan’s 11-year wait for a Scudetto came to an end on an emotional final day of the Serie A season. Rival Inter Milan pushed and pushed but some losses for the Nerazzurri in the second half of the season proved to be fatal.
The Rossoneri were surprise winners and Stefano Pioli must take great credit for instilling the belief in the side that they could overcome the pain of recent years and come out on top.
Juventus suffered another disappointing season but had enough to safely make it to the Champions League places. Napoli, who started the year as one of the other contenders right up until the halfway mark of the season, couldn’t sustain their performance and limped to the end.
Jose Mourinho’s Roma won their first trophy since 2007-08 and will be using that positivity to go further up the table. Atalanta had a bit of a down year by the standards they’ve set in recent years.
The Serie A is one of the most exciting leagues in Europe because of the many contenders, which is great for the Serie A title odds race.

Odds as of June 13 at Betway
Serie A Betting Favorites
Inter Milan (+162)
Despite finishing second on the table, Inter will go into next season as the team to beat. They still had a relatively good season, winning the Supercoppa Italiana earlier in the season before beating Juventus comfortably in the Coppa Italia finals.
They had far better underlying numbers than AC Milan throughout the campaign but that of course won’t help hide the disappointment. Getting 84 points on board was a fantastic achievement, regardless.
The side has lost Ivan Perisic but could see Romelu Lukaku return to the club. The likes of Paulo Dybala and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are also expected to join the club this summer.
Simone Inzaghi will not only be aiming for the Scudetto but also the Champions League and these reinforcements will be crucial.
AC Milan (+200)
For many, this Milan side is still one that is undergoing development, so to have won a Serie A title while going through that is quite the achievement.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was a key dressing room figure for the club and his injury might be a cause for concern but with the experience of already having won the Serie A title, they’ll feel far more comfortable among themselves now.
Milan can’t rest on their laurels and will have to use this win as a way to push themselves forward on the pitch and outside it. They’re looking to add Lille’s Sven Botman, Renato Sanches and Nicolo Zaniolo into their ranks.
Milan will need a deeper squad going forward with the Champions League being a big part of their history. They offer great Serie A title odds.
Serie A Odds: Value Pick
Juventus’ grip on the Serie A is no longer as strong and Massimiliano Allegri will be under pressure to get things right soon. Dusan Vlahovic tailed off during the end of the season and figurehead Giorgio Chiellini has left the club.
They used to top the Serie A title odds not so long ago but things have changed in the last two years. The most successful Italian side is always going to be in the race but it looks like they’re going to take a while to figure themselves out.
If Napoli has a fit Victor Osimhen, they have every chance of going right to the end. He’s the complete center-forward and can lead any attack in the world.
Luciano Spalletti has helmed a good season for the Neopolitans but there will be an air of disappointment after the season’s end. They must take inspiration from Milan and believe that they have just as good a chance as the other big teams to win the Scudetto.
Serie A Betting Strategy
The Milan sides look to be very safe bets for the Serie A outright odds. Inter is the favorite heading into the new season. Milan will be well aware that they overachieved a bit but they’ve been doubted before and have proved everyone wrong.
Napoli is the most interesting side as far as the Serie A title odds are concerned. They offer excellent value and are well worth the punt. They’ll need to make a great start to the season and sustain it for good, unlike last time.
