Best Bets To Win Serie A This Season

The Serie A is one of the closer leagues in Europe, now even more so after Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit from Juventus.

Juventus (+150)

Juventus did not start the post-Ronaldo era well. They were beaten 1-0 by Empoli in their home opener. They have not won a match yet in the league but they are still sitting atop the Serie A title oddsboard. Juventus have picked up just one point in the first two matches and are currently positioned 12th in the Serie A.

That will certainly change as this season progresses but Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri will have to catalyze that change rapidly.

“It's a difficult moment,” Allegri told DAZN. “We need to grow, we have to face our problems together. There have been too many players who have done things poorly who don’t usually drop to that standard.”

There are obvious concerns after the exit of Ronaldo to Manchester United, but Juventus have made some acquisitions in order to stay competitive in the final third in one of the quickest leagues in Europe. Juventus have brought in Dejan Kulusevski and have also re-signed Moise Kean on loan. Kean was Juventus’ youngest debutant in 2016, aged 16 years, eight months and 23 days.

“Homecoming. This is the perfect phrase to describe Moise Kean’s official return to Juventus from Everton,” a statement from Juventus read. “The 21-year-old returns to the club, where not only did he take his first steps in professional football, but where he grew up, as a boy and a player, within our youth sector.”

Let’s also take a quick look at the favorite’s early statistics. Juventus had 56 percent of the possession in their loss against Empoli. They even completed 70 more passes (412 compared to Empoli’s 342), with a pass accuracy rate of 83. Their returns were eerily similar even in the season opener, where Juventus drew 2-2 with Udinese. They had 57 percent of the possession, with a passing accuracy rate of 86 percent.

Inter Milan (+225)

Inter Milan have also lost a pivotal player in the final third. They have lost at least 20 goals per season in the Premier League as Romelu Lukaku made the move to Chelsea. That does not seem to have impacted their performances on the pitch as it has Juventus. They have started the season with two successive wins: a 4-0 victory against Genoa in the opener and 3-1 on the road to Verona.

Joaquin Correa came off the bench to score two goals against Verona on his debut. He had moved to Inter from Lazio on loan.

“It’s a difficult transfer window and the difficulties Inter are facing at the moment are the same as those faced by many other clubs,” Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta said. “You need to be creative to make up for the lack of spending that was par for the course before the pandemic. The starting grid looks very much unchanged. Serie A has lost some great players but the pool of coaching talent has grown.”

Inter will want to improve the subtle factors of their gameplay as this season progresses, such as passing accuracy. They had a pass accuracy rate of 79 percent against Verona but they opened the season by completing 91 percent of their passes against Genoa. Still, Serie A title odds of +225 are quite compelling for the defending champions considering they have a lead of five points already on their strongest competitor in Juventus.

Value Picks To Win Serie A

While the two big teams are dominating the Serie A title odds, there are still other contenders to consider.

Atalanta (+500)

If you have seen the Champions League in the last few years, you would have seen the offensive spirit of Atalanta. The Serie A has been no different. Atalanta have started the season with four points in their first two matches. They opened with a strong 2-1 win on the road against Torino but they were also held to a surprising goalless draw against Bologna at home.

Both Juventus and Inter Milan will have problems as they acclimatize to their newer colleagues. That might just give Atalanta a chance if they can keep scoring goals. That is their preferred modus operandi, that is how they play their soccer and that’s their success mantra.

Are Serie A title odds of +500 worth it? I would say it’s a good time to back Atalanta if you think they might be worth a shot because Juventus might pull themselves together in the months to follow while Inter might also have some starting issues.

From a statistical standpoint, Atalanta absolutely dominated their match against Bologna but were simply not able to break through. Usually, those factors sort themselves out over the course of a season. Atalanta will correct that soon. They had 22 goal attempts, but only one of those were on target against Bologna. They retained the ball for 60 percent of the time in that match as well.

AS Roma (+1000)

AS Roma will be under the masterful, albeit polarizing, tutelage of Jose Mourinho this season. They have started the season with two straight wins, which will go down well with their new manager’s style.

Mourinho will be the key factor if Roma are to succeed because he has experience helping teams overachieve. Case in point was his topsy-turvy managerial stint with Tottenham.

“Perhaps we will lose some and perhaps we will draw others – but I don’t want to change the approach of the team just because we are playing against one of the big sides. And that’s how we have to go forward, little by little,” he said.

Roma have certainly lost some key personnel but they have also made some shrewd signings, including Tammy Abraham from Chelsea. He scored in Roma’s 4-0 weekend win against Salernitana on the road. Roma were simply unstoppable in that match with a possession rate of 81 percent. They even had 28 shots, with nine on target, and also had a pass accuracy rate of 89 percent, with 714 completed passes.

“If you look at the bench today, then obviously I would like a bit more quality, a bit more experience – because you always run into moments when a squad needs to have a bit more experience, and not just when they are on the pitch,” manager Mourinho said. “It’s clear that there are other teams who have more options than we have.”

Betting Strategy For Winners Of Serie A

This is a trickier choice to make compared to other leagues in Europe. While Juventus are obviously favorites in the Serie A title odds, they have started slowly. From a personnel perspective, they might just have the deepest roster in the Serie A, but that alone does not win you leagues.

There is something about Mourinho and AS Roma that seems compelling this season. If they can maintain their fantastic start and stay within reach of the top of the standings, there is no reason why they can’t make a concerted bid for the title. There is definite risk in that choice but you are being fairly compensated for that risk with Serie A title odds of +1000.

I would stay away from Atalanta for now because they are right in the middle of risk and reward – neither here nor there. And that is usually recipe for disaster in Serie A betting. If that changes as this season progresses, we will be sure to let you know.

Inter are again an interesting choice. They are defending champions and have started well. Between Juventus and Inter, my choice would be the latter because they have a few more answers than questions when compared to their competitor. They have a bit more solidity defensively and can also transition as slowly or quickly as they need to, based on the situation of the match.

For now, it seems like the best choice, based on a methodical analysis of risk and reward, would be Inter Milan. But also remember, it is still very early in the season and that will undoubtedly change as this season moves forward.
