Odds to Win Serie A: Juventus and Napoli both win as Inter drops points

Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus Odds to Win 2018-19 Serie A

There were wins for both Juventus and Napoli this past weekend in Italy’s Serie A as Inter’s winning streak came to an abrupt end away to Atalanta. Champions Juventus recorded an impressive 2-0 win away to AC Milan to maintain their six-point lead at the top of the table, while Napoli came from behind to beat Genoa and remain in contention for the domestic crown.

There was disappointment for Inter Milan, however, as their winning streak in Serie A was stopped by Atalanta, who recorded a deserved 4-1 win over the Nerazzurri. The result left Inter nine points off Juventus at the top of the table.

Juventus sees off Milan in fiery encounter

AC Milan forward Gonzalo Higuain saw red against his former club as the Rossoneri succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to Juventus at the San Siro. The Argentine forward also missed a penalty on a miserable night, as goals from Mario Mandzukic and Cristiano Ronaldo made sure of the points for the Old Lady.

Had Higuain scored from the spot on 41 minutes, it would have put Milan back level – Juventus had taken the lead after only eight minutes – but from that decisive moment a win for the visitors was always in the cards. Milan, down in fifth, would appear to be out of the title race now.

Juventus, in stark contrast, continues to go from strength to strength. They have dropped just two points in Serie A all season, are scoring at over two goals per game and leaking just 0.66 goals per game.

Another win has seen their odds shortened yet again on a title win, with the champions now at just -600 (down from -500) to retain their crown. Next up for them is a home match with Spal.

Napoli comes from behind to take points

Napoli moved up to second in the table after coming from behind to win 2-1 away to Genoa. Christian Kouame had put the hosts ahead in the first half before the visitors responded after the interval.

Fabian Ruiz leveled for Napoli before a cruel own goal just four minutes from time secured all three points for Carlo Ancelotti’s side. The win keeps Napoli in contention for the league title even if they are playing continuous catchup to an almighty Juventus outfit.

Napoli is second but already a huge six points behind Juventus despite some impressive numbers. Napoli has won nine of its league encounters so far this season and is scoring at over two goals per game. Trying to catch the Old Lady could well be a thankless task, however.

Despite a win this past weekend, nothing has changed in Napoli’s odds to get their hands on the league title. The San Paolo side remains at +700 to finish the season top of the pile, and next time out is at home to bottom side Chievo, where another three points is an absolute imperative.

Inter stunned by Atalanta rout

And finally, Inter’s winning run was brought screaming to a halt as Atalanta thrashed them 4-1 on Sunday. Inter had held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in the UEFA Champions League last week but looked desperately off the pace here as Atalanta ran them ragged in the second half.

Inter had won seven league fixtures in a row prior to this game, firing themselves back into title contention following a slow start to the season. But this game served as a stark warning that a lack of consistency could be their biggest undoing over the coming months.

This setback means that Inter has lost three games already this term and is nine points back on Juventus. Old problems arise – the team still remains far too reliant on Mauro Icardi to dig them out of trouble and when the Argentine is not firing, the team looks toothless in the final third.

This defeat has seen Inter’s price on a league title triumph double, from +1000 up to +2000. Next up for them is a home match against struggling Frosinone where any notion of inconsistency needs to be put to bed.

There were wins for all three title contenders in Italy’s Serie A this past weekend as the race for the title continues. Champion and league leader Juventus recorded a comfortable 3-1 win over Cagliari, helping them remain six points clear at the top of the table.

However, their title rivals are most certainly not giving up without a fight. Napoli thrashed Empoli 5-1 while Inter recorded its seventh straight league win, also scoring five times in a 5-0 mauling of Genoa, leaving both sides tied on 21 points from 11 outings.

JUVENTUS RECORDs COMFORTABLE WIN

Defending champion Juventus maintained its six-point lead at the top of the table with a 3-1 win over Cagliari. The Old Lady raced into the lead after only 43 seconds when Argentine forward Paulo Dybala struck.

Cagliari leveled through Joao Pedro, but the champions were back in front within two minutes. And Juventus made sure of the points three minutes from time when Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado struck, leaving the champions with 10 wins from 11 games – they are the only side still unbeaten in the league.

The side is scoring at a rate of 2.2 goals per game and conceding less than a goal a game, as they show all the form needed to retain their domestic crown. This win, however, has not changed their odds on winning the league, with the Old Lady still at -500 to finish the campaign in first place.

Next up in the league for Juventus ia a huge game away to Milan, and a win there would give a serious indicator of their abilities. If anyone is to catch them, Milan surely needs a positive result in this clash.

NAPOLI THRASHes EMPOLI TO STAY IN TITLE HUNT

Dries Mertens helped himself to a hat trick as Napoli thrashed Empoli 5-1 to stay in the hunt for the league title. Lorenzo Insigne opened the scoring for Carlo Ancelotti’s side after only nine minutes and from then on there was simply no looking back.

The result allowed Napoli to show it is more than capable of brushing aside lower teams in the league. However, as we have already seen, they need to be able to take maximum points off rivals – they have already been held to a draw by AS Roma and lost 3-1 to Juventus.

This win also saw Napoli’s price on winning the title drop slightly, from +800 to +700. The side is scoring freely at comfortably over two goals per game, but their leaky defence remains a cause for concern with the team conceding more than a goal a game.

Next up for Napoli in the league is an away match with Genoa, and three points once again will be an imperative. Consistency will be key if they are to go on and catch Juventus, and minor slip-ups must be erased over the winter months.

INTER GOes MARCHING ON

And finally, Inter won again, thrashing Genoa 5-0 to stay level on points with Napoli. The win was the side’s seventh in a row, and after a slow start to the season they now sit second on goal difference, with their rock-solid defence helping to keep opponents at bay – they have conceded just six goals in 11 matches.

Inter was rarely troubled by an out-of-sorts Genoa side, and after investing heavily over the summer transfer window, there are signs that Luciano Spalletti is settling on his favored XI and tactical setup. If they carry on like this, Juventus will have just cause for concern.

Another victory has seen Inter’s price on a title slashed. Having previously been as high as +1600, Inter has now dropped to +1000 to finish the season top of the pile ahead of their old rivals Juventus.

Next up for Inter is a trip to Atalanta, and the way they are playing, the fans can expect another win. Having been out of the mix over the last few seasons, Inter looks very much to be back in the hunt for silverware.

A brace from Cristiano Ronaldo, including a stunning long-range effort, was enough to give Juventus a 2-1 win away to Empoli and extend its lead at the top of the Serie A standings to six points. The Old Lady have won nine of their 10 games and have yet to be defeated so far this season, leaving them clearly in pole position in the hunt for the league title.

Elsewhere, Napoli dropped points when it was held to a 1-1 draw with AS Roma, while Milan climbed up to fifth with a 3-2 win over Sampdoria. Lazio and Inter Milan meet on Monday night.

JUVENTUS BACK TO WINNING WAYS

A thunderbolt of a strike from Cristiano Ronaldo helped Juventus to a 2-1 win over Empoli as the champions got back to winning ways. The team looked far from convincing throughout the match but a moment of individual brilliance from the Portuguese veteran was enough to swing the match in Juventus’ favor and seal all three points.

Empoli had taken the lead in the first half and it looked as if Juventus could be headed for more dropped points. Ronaldo, however, underlined just how important he is to their cause – and just how much Real Madrid is missing him right now.

Juventus is undefeated in the league, scoring at a rate of over two goals per game, and sits six points clear of Napoli in second place. In addition, its price on retaining the Serie A crown has dropped, down to -500 from -400 last week.

And after his brace this past weekend, Ronaldo remains the clear favorite to finish the Serie A season as the top goalscorer, with the 33-year-old priced at just -200 to do so. Next up in the league for Juventus is a home game against Cagliari and another three points could see its price drop even further.

NAPOLI DROPs POINTS IN TITLE CHASE

A last-minute goal from Dries Mertens saved Napoli’s blushes against AS Roma as Carlo Ancelotti’s side was held to a disappointing 1-1 draw. Despite its domination of the match, it was Roma that took the lead in just the 14th minute through Stephan El Shaarawy and almost held on to claim what would have been an unlikely three points.

Napoli pressed and pressed, particularly in the second half, and it looked as if it simply was not going to be their day. However, Mertens struck in the dying seconds to give the home side a deserved share of the spoils.

The draw has seen Napoli’s price  to win the league shoot upwards, however. Ancelotti and his players are now at +800 to win the league crown – all the way up from +550 – and simply cannot afford many slip-ups, particularly at home, if they are to have any genuine hope of catching Juventus.

Napoli remains at -1000 to finish in the top four but that is the very least of their aims for this term. Next up in the league for them is a home game against Napoli, and three points is an absolute must as we head into the winter months of the campaign.

MILAN CLIMBING THE TABLE

And finally, AC Milan moved up to fifth with a thrilling 3-2 win over Sampdoria. Given the fact that the club has a game in hand against Genoa, the club could move up another place with a victory on Wednesday night as it looks to close in on the top four.

Milan would only look to have an outside shot of winning the Serie A title, as it is priced at +5000 to do so – the same as Lazio, with Inter Milan at +1600 to finish in first place. They are, however, at just +125 to finish in the top four, an outcome which would be seen as definite progress after years of frustrating stagnation.

Much will depend on the goal-scoring exploits of Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine was on the scoresheet against Sampdoria and is at +1200 to finish the Serie A season with the Golden Boot award.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored again but, for once, the result was different. Despite dominating proceedings, Juventus dropped its first points of this Serie A campaign as Genoa held them to a 1-1 draw in Turin.

The result can only have encouraged their title rivals Napoli and Inter with both sides picking up three points this past weekend. Napoli put in a dominant display away to Udinese, while Inter snatched the Milan derby right at the death thanks to Mauro Icardi.

Genoa draw ends Juventus perfection

It may have been a disappointing weekend for current champions Juventus, but for star man Cristiano Ronaldo it was very special. While the side was held to a 1-1 draw, Ronaldo’s opening goal on 18 minutes meant that he is now the first player in history to score 400 goals in the top five European leagues.

But ultimately Juventus’ profligacy in front of goal was punished, with Daniel Bessa equalizing for the visitors on 67 minutes. Nevertheless, the Old Lady are the only unbeaten side left in Serie A, they are scoring at a rate of over two goals per game, leaking goals at a rate of just 0.66 goals per game and boast a four-point lead over Napoli in second place.

However, the dropped points this weekend has seen Juventus’ odds on retaining its league crown lengthen slightly. Having previously been at -600 to win the title, the Turin club is now at -400, still leaving them as the clear favorite to finish top of the pile.

And despite not scoring for his first three games in a Juventus shirt, Ronaldo is the red-hot favorite to finish this Serie A campaign as the league’s top scorer. The Portuguese player is at just -110 to win the Golden Boot award.

Napoli keeps up the pressure with convincing win

Title chasers Napoli, meanwhile, kept up the pressure with a convincing 3-0 win away to struggling Udinese. Fabian Ruiz opened the scoring after only 14 minutes, while Dries Mertens and Marko Rog put the icing on the cake in the last 10 minutes.

The result means that Carlo Ancelotti’s side is now just four points behind table toppers Juventus after seven wins in its opening nine league games. The side is scoring at a rate of two goals per game but the Italian veteran will need to work on the defensive backline that is leaking goals at a rate of over a goal a game.

A second successive league win has seen the odds on a Napoli title triumph shorten slightly. Having previously been at +600, Ancelotti’s side is now at +550 to win a first league crown in close to three decades.

Meanwhile, they are the clear favorites to finish as “best of the rest” in a league table excluding Juventus, and are at -110 to finish in the highest position. Next up for Napoli is a home game with Roma where they will be confident of making it three league wins in a row.

Inter edges past Milan in tense derby

And finally, Inter Milan edged past city rivals AC Milan 1-0 thanks to a 92nd-minute winner from Argentine striker Mauro Icardi. A mistake from Milan’s young goalkeeper Gigio Donnarumma allowed the goal, but Inter had been the better side as their excellent recent run of form continues.

Luciano Spalletti’s side has now won seven matches in a row across all competitions and, after investing heavily in their squad over the summer, look to finally be clicking on the pitch after a slow start. Inter sits third in the table, six points behind Juventus and with six wins from nine league outings so far.

And after another win, Inter’s price on being crowned league champion has been slashed to +1400, from up at +2500 when they looked out of contention. With confidence growing in the camp, that price is likely to be shortened even further over the recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Icardi may well be one to keep an eye on for top goalscorer. The Argentine is at +900 to win the Golden Boot award, with Lazio’s Ciro Immobile at +600.

Cristiano Ronaldo was on the scoresheet once again for Juventus as the defending Serie A champions eased to a 2-0 win over Udinese. The result meant that the Turin club’s 100 per cent start to the season remained intact, with a six-point cushion in place over Napoli.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side also won by a 2-0 scoreline as they saw off Sassuolo. And Inter continued its excellent run of recent form as they made it six wins in a row across all competitions, while Roma, down in sixth, continued its own mini revival, making it four victories on the bounce.

JUVENTUS CONTINUES PERFECT START

Cristiano Ronaldo helped Juventus maintain its 100 percent start to the new league season with the second goal in a 2-0 victory over Udinese. Rodrigo Bentancur opened the scoring for the Old Lady as they rarely looked troubled by a lackluster Udinese outfit.

Juventus controlled proceedings from the very first whistle and it was of little surprise when Bentancur broke the deadlock on 33 minutes. Ronaldo added a second just four minutes later and from there on in it was pretty much clear sailing for the champions.

Another victory, however, has done nothing for Juventus’ odds, with the side staying at -600 to keep their hands on the Serie A league crown. Next up for them is a home game against Genoa and they will once again expect to take the maximum points from the outing.

Napoli, meanwhile, kept the pressure up with a win of its own, beating Sassuolo 2-0 at the San Paolo. The result followed its late win over Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League and it was indeed heartening to see how well the players have reacted to that loss to Juventus in their last league encounter.

The home side opened the scoring after only three minutes when Adam Ounas put them ahead, before Lorenzo Insigne wrapped up the points after the interval with a fine effort. Again, however, the three points has not changed the price on Napoli winning the league crown, with Ancelotti’s side staying put at +600 to wrest the title away from Juventus.

INTER AND ROMA CONTINUE REVIVALS

Mauro Icardi scored twice as Inter Milan continued its fantastic form with a 2-1 win away to Spal. Inter has now won six matches in a row across all competitions and sits third in the league table with 16 points, eight behind table toppers Juventus.

Inter dominated the first half and there were real signs that the team is beginning to click. Having invested heavily over the summer and with Luciano Spalletti having signed a new contract, we are now seeing strong indications that this side could well be equipped to challenge both Juventus and Napoli for the title.

Inter dropped off in the second half but ultimately did enough to secure the points. And that is one of the signs of a truly great team – to keep on winning even when not playing at your best.

Again, their price to win the title has not budged and they remain at +2500 to beat Juventus to the crown. Next up for them is the crunch Milan derby, and it could tell us a lot about just how far this Inter side can go over the coming months.

And finally, AS Roma has been on a recovery of its own, topping Empoli 2-0 to make it four wins on the bounce across all competitions. Goals from Steven Nzonzi and Edin Dzeko were enough for the club from the capital, which sits in sixth place with 14 points from eight games played thus far.

Since beating Lazio in the Rome derby, we have seen this side push on and confidence in the camp would appear to be on the rise. And those victories have seen Roma’s price drop, from +4000, to +3300, for them to win their first league crown in over 15 years.

Next up for Roma is a home match against Spal and, given their recent form, you would expect another three points. Following a slow start, the Romans are slowly but surely building their own title challenge.

Mario Mandzukic bagged a brace as current league champion Juventus comfortably saw off title rivals Napoli in Turin. The Old Lady have now won seven games in a row and sit six points clear at the top of the table, having scored 16 goals and conceded just five.

Meanwhile, there were also important wins for Inter Milan and AS Roma as they look to battle their way back into contention. Inter beat Cagliari 2-0 while Roma defeated great city rivals Lazio 3-1.

JUVENTUS SCOREs HUGE WIN OVER RIVALS

Cristiano Ronaldo may not have got on the scoresheet, but he played a pivotal role as Juventus saw off rivals Napoli 3-1 this past weekend. Napoli made the perfect start when Dries Mertens gave the visitors the lead after only 10 minutes.

But Mandzukic equalized from Ronaldo’s assist after 26 minutes and from then on the impetus was very much with the home side. Mandzukic put Juventus ahead less than five minutes after the interval and Leonardo Bonucci made sure of the points 15 minutes from time as Juventus has looked nigh-on unstoppable in the opening weeks of the season.

The result has seen the odds on Juventus retaining their title shortened once again. Having been at -400, the Old Lady are now at just -600 to win the league crown, and given the way they have started this season it does not look like many teams will be able to stop them.

This result was nothing short of disastrous for Napoli, especially after they had started the match in such a positive fashion. It was Carlo Ancelotti’s second loss of the season and, while Napoli remains in second place, they are now six points off Juventus.

The defeat has also seen Napoli’s price to win the league title rise slightly, from +500 up to +600. Napoli now has a huge Champions League game against Liverpool, before they host Sassuolo in Serie A’s eighth round – anything less than three points there could see Juventus pull even further ahead, and Ancelotti can afford precious few setbacks given how strongly Juventus has started the campaign.

WINS FOR INTER AND ROMA

Meanwhile, goals from Lautaro Martinez and Matteo Politano gave Inter Milan a comfortable 2-0 win over Cagliari. Inter boss Luciano Spalletti deserves huge praise for steadying what was a rocking ship, and the Nerazzurri can start looking upward and closing the gap at the top of the table.

Inter has now won four matches in a row across all competitions, including three in Serie A. Those three league victories have seen Inter concede just one goal, and the side now sits in fourth with 13 points from seven games, just two points behind Napoli in second.

Despite the victories, Inter’s price has risen slightly, from +2000 to +2500, to win the league, but that is more an indication of Juventus’ strength than any Inter weakness. If Inter continues to win football matches, then those odds will shorten as the weeks go by, and their next domestic commitment is a trip to take on Spal.

And finally, Roma clinched victory in the Rome derby to put a nightmare run of form behind them. Aleksander Kolarov and Federico Fazio struck in the second half after Ciro Immobile had wiped out Lorenzo Pellegrini’s opening goal for the hosts.

The result saw the club from the capital climb up to eighth with 11 points. Roma now sits just two points off Fiorentina in third place, and it was Roma’s second win in a row after they thrashed Frosinone 4-0 in midweek, and the club has now gone six matches unbeaten in front of their own fans, showing some much-needed consistency.

Recent positive results have not made a difference to Roma’s pricing in the race to win Serie A, however. The club remains at +4000 to win just their second Serie A title since the turn of the century, but they can nevertheless make it three league wins in a row when they travel to take on Empoli next time out.

That man Cristiano Ronaldo was on the scoresheet once again as Juventus beat Frosinone 2-0 to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season. The Old Lady now have five wins from five and sit three points clear of second-place Napoli.

Carlo Ancelotti looks to be finding his best formation and tactical plan at Napoli after they picked up a 3-1 win away to Torino. And Inter Milan also got three points on the board after a late goal was enough to edge past Sampdoria.

RONALDO SCORES AGAIN

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late goal as Juventus beat Frosinone 2-0 this past Sunday evening. Federico Bernardeschi added another to put the icing on the cake and ensure Juventus’ 100 per cent record remains intact.

Ronaldo recovered well from his red card against Valencia in the UEFA Champions League to score for the second league game running as Juventus is once again the pace setter in Italy. In truth, Ronaldo could have had a hat trick but saw several chances go begging before burying one from close range in the 81st minute. He now has three goals for his new club.

Frosinone has just one point so far and looks to be facing an uphill struggle for survival. Juventus, however, has seen its odds on another title win shortened slightly, from -350 to -400, as the team goes marching on.

And with three goals to his name already, it will be no surprise to see Ronaldo’s name at the top of the odds list to finish the season as top scorer. The Portuguese forward is at just -175 to win the Serie A Golden Boot award.

Next up for Juventus is a home game against Bologna, which recorded an impressive 2-0 win against Roma at the weekend. The likelihood is, however, that Juventus will chalk up another three points as Ronaldo looks to have finally found his shooting boots.

NAPOLI WINs AWAY

 A brace from Lorenzo Insigne helped Napoli to a hugely impressive 3-1 win away to Torino. The result means that Carlo Ancelotti’s side has picked up 12 points from five games and sits second in the early-season table, just three points behind reigning champion Juventus.

Napoli rarely looked worried during the 90 minutes and is now playing some bold, expansive football. As they grow in confidence, we are seeing the Napoli that is more than capable of offering a sustained challenge to Juventus over the coming months.

Napoli’s price to win the Serie A title outright remains the same, at +500, but their fans will be encouraged by the performance against Torino just as much as the outcome of the match. Next up for Napoli is a home match against newly promoted Parma before they travel to Turin for what will surely be a huge showdown away to Juventus. The outcome of that match, between the two favorites for the title, should go a long way to telling us just how ready this Napoli side is for a tilt at the crown.

INTER BUILDING MOMENTUM

Marcelo Brozovic scored a 94th-minute winner for Inter Milan to secure a crucial 1-0 win away to Sampdoria. The result was Inter’s third win in four across all competitions as they climb up to seventh and, just like Napoli, coach Luciano Spalletti looks to be settling on a formation and just what his best team will look like.

After a slow start, Inter is now within touching distance of those above them in the league standings. Following heavy investment in their playing staff over the summer transfer window, big things were expected of Inter this season, and their sluggish start has been underwhelming to say the least.

The win has seen their price to win the title drop from +2500 to +2000 and they now have a fantastic opportunity to build up a head of steam and climb the table. Their next match is a huge game at home to Fiorentina, which currently sits third with 10 points, and a win for Inter would draw them level, as well as laying down a huge marker of intent for their season ambitions.

Well, he is finally off the mark. Arguably the biggest news in Italy’s Serie A this past weekend was the fact that Portuguese ace Cristiano Ronaldo finally got on the scoresheet for his new club, bagging a brace in a narrow 2-1 win over Sassuolo.

The result means that Juventus maintains its 100 per cent record, and their four wins so far have brought nine goals at a rate of nearly 2.5 goals per game. Meanwhile, Napoli also got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Fiorentina, thanks to a late strike from Lorenzo Insigne.

RONALDO BREAKS JUVENTUS DUCK

Cristiano Ronaldo got his first goals for his new club as the Old Lady saw their way past Sassuolo 2-1. Having failed to find the back of the net in his first three outings, Ronaldo bagged a brace on this occasion as Juventus maintained its perfect start to its latest title defence.

The visitors pulled one back and Juventus had Douglas Costa sent off in injury time, but the champions held on to secure the points. The result means that the champions remain three points clear at the top of the table and have already set the bar high in the opening weeks of the campaign.

A fourth straight victory has seen the odds on Juventus retaining its crown drop slightly, from -300 to -350. Meanwhile, Ronaldo getting his goal tally up and running for the season means he is still very much the favorite to win the Golden Boot and is priced at -175 to do so.

Next up for Juventus in the league is an away trip to minnows Frosinone, a match the champions will be expected to win. Their procession toward another title certainly shows no sign of slowing just yet.

NAPOLI BACK ON TRACK WITH WIN

Veteran boss Carlo Ancelotti got his Napoli players back on track with a 1-0 win over Fiorentina. It took until the 79th minute for Napoli to break down their stubborn opponents, but a strike from Lorenzo Insigne was enough to secure three points and a third win in four outings for Ancelotti.

The result hoisted Napoli up to second in the table with nine points, two ahead of Sassuolo in third but, crucially, three behind Juventus at the top of the league. Those dropped points last time out against Sampdoria have allowed Juventus to already put some daylight between themselves and the chasing pack.

Nevertheless, this weekend’s win has seen Napoli’s price to get their hands on the domestic crown drop dramatically from +700 to +500. Juventus very much remains in front, but if Napoli continues to apply pressure, then the Old Lady could slip up at some point along the winding road to domestic triumph.

Napoli is the favorite to finish as “best of the rest,” at +137 to finish top of the table excluding Juventus. Having once again qualified for the UEFA Champions League, the side is at just -450 to finish in the top four in Serie A come the end of this season.

POTENTIAL CHALLENGERS FALL AWAY EARLY

And finally, not one of AS Roma, Inter Milan and AC Milan could muster a win between them as their respective title challenges look to have stumbled far too early. The biggest shock came at the San Siro as Inter – widely tipped to challenge for the title after heavy investment over the summer transfer window – lost 1-0 to newly promoted Parma.

The shock result saw Inter’s price to land the league crown more than double, from +1200 to +2500. The club is, however, at just -125 to finish the season in the top four.

There were also disappointing draws for Milan and Roma, with the former coming away from Cagliari with a 1-1 stalemate. The club from the capital, however, endured a desperately poor afternoon as they were held 2-2 at home by bottom club Chievo.

AS Roma let a two-goal lead slip in the second half and has now not won since the opening day of the season, collecting just two points from its last three league outings. Both Milan and Roma are at +2500 to win the Serie A crown – up from +1600 from the third round.

It was by no means pretty, but defending Italian league champion Juventus managed to hold onto their 100 per cent record this season following a nervy 2-1 away win against newly promoted Parma this past weekend. Goals from veteran Mario Mandzukic and Blaise Matuidi came on either side of Gervinho’s striker for the home side, while Cristiano Ronaldo’s elusive first goal in Italian football continues to elude him.

And the champions managed to put daylight between themselves and their main title rivals for the first time this season. Napoli were comprehensively beaten 3-0 by Sampdoria, while a last-minute strike also saw Roma go down 2-1 at Milan. There was, however, a first win of the campaign for Luciano Spalletti’s Inter.

Ronaldo search for first goal goes on

Cristiano Ronaldo has yet to get off the mark for new club Juventus, but that did not stop them from making it three wins from three this past weekend away to Parma. Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring for the Old Lady after only two minutes, before Gervinho replied for the hosts just after the half-hour mark.

However, a goal just before the hour from Matuidi was enough to seal the points, and in truth Juventus could have had more with Brazilian attacker Douglas Costa going close to putting the icing on the cake. Their performances have been more efficient than spectacular so far, but it has not stopped them from being priced as the overwhelming favorites to successfully maintain their domestic crown.

The champions are now at just -300 to win the league title once again, and the fact they are managing to get the job done without Ronaldo firing should send a stark message to their rivals. Next up for the Old Lady is a home game with Sassuolo on September 15.

The Portuguese veteran may not have found the back of the net yet, but he remains the clear favorite to finish the season as top scorer in Italy’s Serie A. The 33-year-old is at the same price as before (-138) to win the Golden Boot come May.

There was relief for Luciano Spalletti and his Inter Milan side this past weekend as they finally got their own campaign up and running. Inter can now go into the international break with a much-needed confidence boost, while new signing Radja Nainggolan was on the scoresheet on his debut.

After a slow start to the season which saw the Nerazzurri pick up just one point from their opening two games, Inter now sits seventh with four points on the board as they look to build up some momentum. After the break, Inter hosts Parma in a match they will be confident of taking the points in as Spalletti looks upwards to launching a title challenge on old rivals Juventus.

As a result of this weekend’s victory, Inter’s price to win the title has dropped slightly from +1440 to +1200. And Argentine forward Mauro Icardi is only behind Ronaldo in the betting to win the Golden Boot – he is at +600 to get his hands on the prize.

Napoli drops points in race for the title

There was a first setback for Carlo Ancelotti in the Napoli hot seat after his side was comprehensively beaten 3-0 by Sampdoria this past Sunday evening. Having beaten both Lazio and Milan, Napoli was undone in the first half by a brace from French forward Gregoire Defrel before a wonder striker from Fabio Quagliarella sealed the points 15 minutes from time.

The defeat means Napoli has dropped down to sixth, three points behind league leaders Juventus. Sassuolo now surprisingly sits in second place, having collected seven points from the opening three games.

And having been Juventus’ closest challengers last season, Napoli needs to stay on the coattails of the champions. Their price to get their hands on a first league crown in close to three decades has risen to +700 following defeat.

Roma, meanwhile, has also seen its price rise following a 2-1 defeat to Milan on Saturday night. The club from the capital sits in ninth place with four points and is at +1600 to win the title for just the second time since the turn of the century.

Current Italian league champions Juventus put in a strong showing as they comfortably saw off Roman outfit Lazio 2-0 in the second week of the new season. Goals from Miralem Pjanic and veteran striker Mario Mandzukic were enough to seal the points as the Old Lady maintained their 100 percent start to their latest title defence.

Meanwhile, Napoli won a thrilling encounter with AC Milan 3-2 to stay on Juventus’ coattails. Carlo Ancelotti’s side rallied from two goals down to score three times in 27 minutes and snatch the points.

Ronaldo still looking for first goal

Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo made his home debut for Juventus this past weekend but his search for his first goal in black and white stripes continues.  A fine strike from Pjanic opened the scoring before Mandzukic put the icing on the cake after the break.

However, Juventus has done all that has been asked from them in their opening two games, and have six points in the bank as well as having scored five goals already. Their class was too much for a Lazio side which finished fifth last term but has now lost its first two games of the new campaign – although those defeats have admittedly come at the hands of Napoli and Juventus.

The champions remain the favorites to retain their crown after their perfect start to the season. Juventus is at -250 to be crowned Italian league champion once again come May.

Despite failing to find the back of the net in his first two games, Ronaldo is still the outright favorite to finish the season as top scorer in Italy. You can back the Portuguese to get his hands on the Golden Boot prize at just -138, with Inter’s Mauro Icardi at +600 to pip him to the post.

Meanwhile, one of the sides that was thought to be a main challenger looks to have stumbled prematurely in the title race. Inter Milan dropped points yet again, drawing 2-2 with Torino despite opening up a two-goal lead after only 32 minutes.

After losing 1-0 to Sassuolo last week, Inter, which spent heavily over the summer and tied coach Luciano Spalletti down to a new contract until 2021, has picked up just one point so far this season and is still looking for its first win. After Torino pulled level, there were still over 20 minutes to play, but a distinct lack of fire from the Inter attack saw them create and threaten little in the closing stages.

As a result, Inter’s price to get their hands on the Serie A crown has already risen steeply before the season is a month old. Having been at +800 to win the title, the price for the Nerazzurri now stands at +1400.

Napoli remains level with Juventus

One side that has not disappointed over the first two rounds of the new season is Napoli. Veteran boss Carlo Ancelotti took charge of his first home game at the helm of his new club and it was a game that he will not forget in a hurry.

Ancelotti masterminded victory over his former club AC Milan – where he won the UEFA Champions League twice – coming back from two goals down to win 3-2. Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski scored twice as Napoli battled back from a desperate position to seal a historic and hard-fought three points.

And having been Juventus’ closest challengers last season, it looks like Napoli is the team best equipped to push all the way this time around as well. After a second successive win, Napoli’s price to win the league has fallen slightly (from +600) and now stands as +550 as they look to win their first league crown in close to three decades.

Just like Juventus, Napoli has six points and five goals scored. It should be a close and intriguing battle between the two over the coming months.

Roma, meanwhile, has seen its price rise without even playing their second game yet. The side hosts Atalanta on Monday night and has gone from +700 to +1000 to win only their second Serie A title since the turn of the century.

Defending Italian champions Juventus were forced to sweat late in a 3-2 win over Chievo. Meanwhile, there were also wins on the road for expected title challengers Napoli and Lazio, but Inter Milan, who have invested heavily in their squad over the summer, fell 1-0 to Sassuolo on the opening day.

Ronaldo fails to find the net

There was no goal for Cristiano Ronaldo on his Juventus debut, and the side needed a dramatic 93rd-minute winner to find a way past Chievo this past Saturday. The result showed there is still room for improvement from the champions over the autumn months, but their resilience in the face of adversity remains as strong as ever.

Juventus remain the favorites to retain their domestic crown, but their rivals will be buoyed by the fact that there are most certainly chinks in that Turin armor. The Old Lady have seen their price drop slightly to -225 to be crowned Serie A champions come the end of the season.

And despite drawing a blank in his first game, Ronaldo remains the odds-on favorite to finish the season as top scorer. The Portuguese veteran is at -150 to win the domestic Golden Boot.

Meanwhile, a new-look Inter side failed to jell as they lost 1-0 away to Sassuolo. Their expensively assembled squad was forced to face facts – time and patience may well be key to getting the best out of the pieces at coach Luciano Spalletti’s disposal.

A penalty in the 27th minute was enough to put Inter down and the early evidence suggests that it may still be too soon to be talking of the title. Inter have now lost seven times against Sassuolo since 2015 and have now lost on the opening weekend of the Serie A season in two of the last three campaigns.

But Inter remain the second favorites for the Serie A crown at a price of +600. In addition, Spalletti’s side is at -250 to finish in the top four and, after that performance, that may well be the limit of their abilities this season.

Much will depend on the exploits of Argentine forward Mauro Icardi. Only Ronaldo is at shorter odds to finish the season as top scorer, with Icardi at +600 to get his hands on the Golden Boot.

Ancelotti makes winning start at Napoli

Veteran boss Carlo Ancelotti got off to a winning start as Napoli boss with a 2-1 win away to Lazio in Rome. The side survived an early scare and were forced to come from behind to snatch the points after Ciro Immobile gave the home side the lead.

Napoli ran Juventus close last season, finishing just four points off the top of the table, and are at +700 to win their first Serie A crown in close to three decades. Ancelotti looks to have steadied the ship admirably after the key losses of Maurizio Sarri and midfield creator Jorginho, and the team got stronger the longer the game went on.

On paper at least, there is more than enough quality in the Napoli squad to launch another title challenge, and with Ancelotti at the helm of the ship, quite frankly anything is possible for this group of players. If the players have adapted quickly to his methods, then Napoli could well be a force to be reckoned with over the course of the season.

The same could also be said of AS Roma, who got their season off on the right foot with a 1-0 win away to Torino. It took them until the 89th minute to seal the victory – and once it came it was thanks to Edin Dzeko once again.

It is hard to stress just how important the Bosnian is to this Roma side. His goals could go a long way to deciding the fortunes of the club this season, and the striker is at +1000 to finish the Serie A season as top scorer.

The club from the capital look odds-on for a top-four finish – they are at -250 to achieve one – but they are not far behind the likes of Inter and Napoli when it comes to an outright title win. You can back Roma at +800 to get their hands on the league title for just the second time this century – that’s a slight increase from preseason.

There is now under a week until the new Serie A campaign in Italy kicks off, and Juventus very much remains the team to beat on the domestic front. The Turin-based outfit has now won the league crown for seven seasons in a row and their success has shown little sign of abating as they continue to sweep all before them.

Admittedly, however, last season was far closer than many had previously envisaged. Juventus finished just four points ahead of closest rivals Napoli, but while the champions have strengthened yet again, their closest challengers have lost key pieces during the transfer window.

Can Juventus be caught?

That is the main question as we head into the new season, and there is no escaping the fact that the Old Lady is once again the clear favorite to secure the Serie A title. You can back them at just -250 to make it eight wins in a row, and the addition of Ronaldo to their ranks will give them a huge confidence boost.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the veteran forward is also the favorite to finish the campaign as the top goalscorer in Italy. You can back the Portuguese at -150 to finish as Italy’s Golden Boot winner, with teammate and Argentine international Paulo Dybala at +3300 to do the same.

However, the golden rule remains pertinent here: the more specific your bets, the higher the potential rewards, and you may also bet on how many goals you think Ronaldo will net. OVER 29.5 comes in at +100, with UNDER 29.5 at the shorter price of -138.

Inter back among the big boys

One club who may run them close this season is former European champion Inter Milan. Inter could only manage a fourth-place finish last season, a massive 23 points off Juventus, but an aggressive transfer window has bolstered the squad of coach Luciano Spalletti considerably.

Of course, the club can also count on striker Mauro Icardi, one of the hottest properties in world football right now. In addition, the club has added Radja Nainggolan, Keita Baldéa and Lautaro Martinez as they look to win their first domestic crown in close to a decade.

Inter are at +650 to get their hands on the Serie A crown in May, but you can also back them at the much shorter price of -250 to finish in the top four. Given the options now at Spalletti’s disposal, that should be the absolute minimum target for the campaign.

Indeed, such is Juventus’ dominance in Italy that you can also bet on a league table that does not include the current champions, and it is Inter who are favorites to finish up as “best of the rest” at +200. And Icardi’s goals will be crucial to any title hopes Inter has – the Argentine international is at +600 to finish as Serie A’s top goalscorer, with only Ronaldo priced shorter.

Ancelotti looking to work magic at Napoli

And finally, Napoli may have lost their excellent yet eccentric coach Maurizio Sarri, but they would appear to be in safe hands for the new season.  Veteran boss Carlo Ancelotti, formerly in charge at the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, has taken over as the club looks to mount another title challenge.

This season, however, has seen Napoli fall slightly down the pecking order. The previous campaign saw them finish just four points off Juventus, having amassed 91 points and won 28 of their 38 league games.

This season they are at +700 to win the league title outright, and how much the loss of key playmaker Jorginho will hurt the creative impetus of the team remains to be seen. Ancelotti starts his new job with a tough assignment away to Rome side Lazio, but it is visitors Napoli, at +140, who come in as the slight favorites to make a winning start to the season.

While Juventus is still the favorite to top Italy’s Serie A in 2018-19, Inter Milan has made a big move up the oddsboard ahead of the August 18 start date to the campaign.

Juve, who obviously landed Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, is the clear-cut favorite to win the league at online shop Bovada at -225, but Inter has moved from +1100 when I first posted this article to now +700, in what has been the most significant futures move with the season starting in little over one week.

The Nerazzurri, one of Italy’s proudest clubs, haven’t won a scudetto since the 2009-10 season but had a great 2017-18 campaign which saw them finish fourth and qualify for Champions League via a dramatic 3-2 victory over Lazio on the final day.

All that said, what’s really impressive about Inter heading into the new season is the signings that the club has made and the players that it has been able to retain. Incomings include Stefan de Vrij, Kwadwo Asamoah, Sime Vrsaljko, Radja Nainggolan, Matteo Politano and Lautaro Martinez. Those big-name players join the likes of Mauro Icardi, Ivan Perisic, Milan Skriniar, Samir Handanovic, Matias Vecino and electric youngster Yann Karamoh to form a very, very strong Inter side.

Manager Luciano Spalletti, now in his second season with Inter, brought a sort of defensive stability to the side that it has lacked in recent seasons. Inter, traditionally known as a staunch defensive outfit, conceded just 30 goals last season. The season before, under a revolving door of managers including Frank de Boer, Stefano Vecchi and Stefano Pioli, it conceded 49 goals.

Serie A titles belong to Juventus. The Old Lady has won seven straight entering the season and adding CR7 to an offensive trio which will potentially feature Douglas Costa and Paulo Dybala flanking him is a scary thought for the rest of the league.

With the great Cristiano Ronaldo heading to Italy to ply his trade with Juventus, the defending Serie A champions have moved from -160 prior to the rumors to now -250 with the transfer official.

Juve has won the last seven Serie A titles and with Ronaldo heading to The Old Lady, eight is beginning to look more and more likely and online shop Bovada has them firmly on top.

Ronaldo is coming off three straight Champions League titles with Real Madrid and won his second La Liga crown with the club in 2016-17. While 33 years of age, he was second in La Liga in scoring with 26 goals and was the top scorer in Champions League with 15.

Juve has already been active in the summer transfer market, adding João Cancelo and Mattia Perin to bolster a squad that has lost club legend Gianluigi Buffon as well as Stephan Lichtsteiner and Kwadwo Asamoah.

Serie A had the most exciting title race of the “big five” European leagues last season. Juve won by four points over Napoli while Manchester City won the Premier League by 19 points over Manchester United, Barcelona won La Liga by 14 points over Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga by 21 points over Schalke and PSG won Ligue 1 by 13 points over Monaco.

Can anyone compete with Juventus this season and prevent them from winning another scudetto?

The Return of Carlo Ancelotti

Well, the second team on the futures board, Napoli (+550), has made some of the most drastic changes in the offseason. The biggest, of course, is replacing Maurizio Sarri with Carlo Ancelotti on the touchline.

The great Italian manager returns to Serie A for the first time since leaving AC Milan at the end of the 2008-09 season. Since moving abroad, Ancelotti has won the Premier League with Chelsea (2009-10), Ligue 1 with PSG (2012-13) and Bundesliga with Bayern Munich (2016-17). His success is undeniable and he probably has the best chance to do what Sarri couldn’t with a very talented Napoli club.

Napoli is on the verge of losing midfield staple Jorginho but has added the very talented Fabián Ruiz from Real Betis as well as winger Simone Verdi, who is coming off a great season with Bologna, and young goalkeeper Alex Meret from Udinese.

If you believe in Ancelotti and this very talented Napoli side, they are being offered at a pretty decent price of +550.

Inter Milan On The Rise Up the Table

Inter Milan’s dramatic victory over Lazio on the final matchday of the season secured a return to the Champions League for the first time since the 2011-12 season as they locked up fourth place in Serie A. It was a fantastic debut season in Milan for manager Luciano Spalletti and the club hopes for a higher place in the table in the upcoming season and sits at +1100 to win the scudetto.

The additions to the squad have been very interesting with ex-Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan entering the fold as well as highly touted Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez, who comes over from Racing.

The biggest coup of all might be centerback Stefan de Vrij, who joins on a free transfer from Lazio. The Dutch defender was immense for Lazio last year and adding him to a list of centerbacks that already includes Miranda and Milan Skriniar is a scary thought. Inter conceded just 30 goals last campaign, good enough for fourth behind Juve (24), Roma (28) and Napoli (29), so we shouldn’t be surprised to see that number lower at season’s end.
